Not to act like we're your mom, but we simply must ask: Are you fitting in your three daily meals? They say breakfast is the most important of the trio, but this Around the Web is giving each its proper due. After all, mothers don't play favorites.
We recommend eating a solid meal before you read this; otherwise, it's a near guarantee that you're going to be dropping whatever you're doing in favor of pursuing the closest egg sammy. Spare yourself the inconvenience. From the traditional meat, egg and cheese combos to delicious deviations from the norm, Food & Wine has found a plethora of morning eats for us to salivate over. What stands out? First and foremost, the egg, cheese and green chile casserole on a cheddar scone from Sweet 16th in Nashville. Nothing makes a better topper for cheese than another hunk of cheese. Who's the runner up? San Francisco's The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen (more cheese, please), inventor of the Breakfast Piglet: levain bread (although, gluten-free is available) smothered with rosemary butter and topped with egg, sharp cheddar, ham and apple mustard. Hungry now? Don't say we didn't warn you.
Here's a win-win scenario if we've ever seen one. Mario Batali and Jim Dine are currently holding an eBay auction for their fancy, highly exclusive cookbook. Only 100 copies are available and the bidding starts at $1,200, so we expect a full-on foodie fight to ensue. No matter how high the price goes, it's completely worth it: Proceeds go to The Lunchbox Fund, a charity that provides meals for underprivileged high schoolers in South Africa. Click quickly, though, for the auction only lasts until Saturday.
Did you offer to host Easter dinner this year? Having a minor panic attack about it? No worries; The New York Times Dining section is offering up all of its best holiday recipes for the taking (okay, borrowing – it is Lent). Whip up a batch of Shrimp Deviled Eggs as your appetizer and we guarantee the plate will be empty in minutes. Sweeten up your meat with one of two delicious glazes: Clementine Peppercorn or Sour Cherry Thyme. Dessert, anyone? Adults and little ones both will love your Saffron Honey Marshmallows – a.k.a homemade Peeps. With a meal like this, they'll be requesting an encore for next year. Try not to let that discourage you.
