I recently acquired 7 more different types of bitters (including Peychaud), Campari, Herbsaint, and Heering cherry liqueur, I’ve got a new world to discover. So here’s what I made last night.

muffin tin omelets

When I have time, some weekends I make muffin tin omelets, also sometimes called no-crust quiche. It makes it easy for me to have a high protein, low carb breakfast throughout the week. In the past, I’ve used a fairly shallow muffin tin. But that makes muffin tin omelets that aren’t quite enough to satisfy… Continue reading muffin tin omelets
