Farm Fresh Egg Stir Fry - Kick Up Your Protein & Eat Delicious

I remember when I figured this one out -  It was gold... My own hibachi type rice at home... From an egg with a rich, yellow yolk.....and flavor.....lots and lots of flavor!

It can be vegetarian or you can add some bacon, beef, sausage or potatoes...there's tons of options! Here's how I cook mine: Start the minute rice - 5 minutes in the microwave and let rest Cook on medium to medium high heat to give the rice...

My Egg Peeling Success Secret with Farm Fresh Hard Boiled Eggs

We all love the flavor of farm fresh local eggs..... But what about when you need to peel them? They are not so stunning then.  And it's not something you did....it's because they are that fresh.....YES! So what do I do to overcome this ugly, pitted look? Simple!
