Toaster Series: Bacon and Cheese Omelet

So here's #2. Last week I made Ripert's Caramelized Mangoes. This week, I present to you Bacon and Cheese Omelet. I originally hoped that it would be more like a quiche, but i'm having trouble calling it that without a crust. See below for recipe.

Toaster Series: Mangoes a la mode

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

I've been following Eric Ripert for a number of years now. I saw him on some PBS cooking show and thought he was a great chef. His food seemed accessible, but well done. He also seemed accessible and down to earth. I don't feel the same way about most other ...

kimchi for spacemen

Friday, February 15th, 2008

You maybe asking "What the heck is that?" They're bottles of flavor and vitamin "enhanced" water.

cooking with Coolio

Wednesday, February 13th, 2008

Not as impressive looking or as ...
