Super Easy Falafel
The World According To Eggface
by Michelle "Shelly"
3y ago
This is my super easy version of Falafel. It’s not traditional so if you are looking for that, this is not the recipe for you but it’s a quick, easy, and super yummy recipe when you are jonesing for something with a Middle Eastern vibe. I love it because it uses canned chickpeas, using dried chickpeas that are soaked overnight is more traditional but I never remember to soak beans and when I want falafel... in the words of Veruca Salt, “I want it now!”  This recipe also does not contain cilantro which is generally found in traditional recipes. If you love cilantro, you could certainly sub ..read more

Bariatric Surgery: Why more people don't have it.
The World According To Eggface
by Michelle "Shelly"
3y ago
Bariatric surgery is a pretty darn effective obesity treatment. Beyond the weight loss, which for many increases their quality of life, multiple long-term studies show bariatric surgery can put type-2 diabetes, sleep apnea, and hypertension (a risk for heart disease and stroke) into remission and reduces the burden or risk of many other obesity-related conditions and diseases including a few cancers. But only 1% of those who would qualify for bariatric surgery have it.  A few thoughts on why and this is by no means an exhaustive list...  Fear of surgery, fear of complications and dea ..read more

Hamilton Beach Egg Bite Maker: Copycat Starbucks Egg Bites

by Michelle "Shelly"
4y ago
Those of you who have been around this blog a while know that I have quite a collection of "egg bite" recipes. I think at last count there are at least 40 variations on the blog. Some of my favorites are the egg foo young, cheeseburger, pizza bites. I bake them 24 at a time in mini muffin tins and heat them up in a toaster oven or microwave throughout the week for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I have even made them for parties as an appetizer to rave reviews and cleared platters. Baking them gives them a toasty, yummy edge that I love but 24 at a time is a commitment so when I saw this little g ..read more

We are so excited! The best part is with the financial commitment removed (the event series is FREE) and reduced time and travel commitment, the "doors" have been ope ..read more

Stay at Home Cooking: Spaghetti Squash Lasagna
The World According To Eggface
by Michelle "Shelly"
4y ago
As I write this most of the world is under stay at home orders to avoid spreading the coronavirus. We're only going out for essentials like food or medicine but even then I'm going to try and avoid it if possible. I had a pretty good food supply in the freezer and pantry so I've been cooking up some tasty meals so far... we'll see what happens in a couple of weeks it might be another story. I do have a couple of mysterious packages in the back of the freezer it might come to using those. Well... we could have a contest to guess what it is. LOL. Last night's quarantine kitchen meal was a layer ..read more
