  3. 3. This recipe for GARDEN HERB EGGS, posted on October 29th, 2009, is the perfect food for an early morning breakfast. Annie says, “I can’t believe I waited this long to try these eggs. For one thing, they are incredibly low maintenance and quick to make – definitely something I appreciate in a weekend breakfast. And second, they taste phenomenal.” With an introduction like that, this recipe NEEDS to be tasted! Here is a list of the things you’ll need: Ingredients: Serves 4 1 tsp. minced fresh garlic ½ tsp. minced fresh thyme leaves ½ tsp. minced fresh rosemary leaves ½ tsp. minced fresh chives 1 tsp. minced fresh parsley 2 tbsp. freshly grated Parmesan cheese 12 large eggs ¼ cup heavy cream, divided 2 tbsp. unsalted butter, divided Kosher salt Directions Freshly ground pepper
  4. 4. Directions: Preheat the broiler for 5 minutes and place the oven rack 6 inches below the heat source. Combine the garlic, thyme, rosemary, chives, parsley, and Parmesan cheese and set aside. Carefully crack 3 eggs into each of 4 small bowls or teacups without breaking the yolks. (These are not the dishes you will bake the eggs in.) It is very important to have all the eggs ready to go before you start cooking because you must move quickly. Place four individual gratin dishes or oven-safe crocks on a baking sheet. Place 1 tablespoon of cream and ½ tablespoon of butter in each dish and place under the broiler for about 5 minutes, until hot and bubbly. Quickly but carefully pour each serving of eggs into the individual gratin dishes and sprinkle evenly with the herb mixture. Season liberally with salt and pepper. Place back under the broiler for 5 to 6 minutes, until the whites of the eggs are just cooked. (You may need to rotate the baking sheet halfway through to ensure even baking.) The eggs will continue to cook after you take them out of the oven. Allow to rest for at least 60 seconds before serving hot, with toast if desired. Finished Product

  6. 6. This BROCCOLI CHEDDAR SOUP, posted on November 5th, 2009, is a perfect cold weather lunch. According to Annie this is “a nice thick, creamy soup with equal parts broccoli and cheddar flavor.” Delicious and easy, this soup is a recipe you cannot go wrong with! Here is a list of the things you’ll need: Ingredients: 6 tbsp. butter, divided ¾ cup onion, chopped 1 cup carrot, chopped or shredded 4 cups small broccoli florets 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth ½ tsp. onion salt ½ tsp. garlic powder 4 tbsp. flour 2 cups milk 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese Freshly ground black pepper Directions
  7. 7. Directions: In a large stockpot or Dutch oven, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add the onion to the pan and sauté until tender, about 5-7 minutes. Add the carrots to the pan and cook a couple minutes more. Stir in the broccoli, chicken broth, onion salt and garlic powder. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. In a medium saucepan, melt remaining butter. Add the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes until golden brown, whisking constantly. Whisk in the milk and cook until the mixture thickens and bubbles, about 5 minutes. Once the mixture has thickened, whisk in the cheese until completely melted. Remove from the heat and add the cheese sauce to the soup pot. Allow to simmer until warmed through and broccoli is tender. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. If desired, puree the soup with an immersion blender for a smooth texture. Finished Product
