Do you have the best recipe using Eggland’s Best Eggs? Our friends at Eggland’s Best are searching for the most creative and delicious recipes from your kitchen that celebrate Eggland’s Best eggs. Does your recipe highlight the best local ingredient from your state PLUS Eggland’s Best eggs?

Enter the 2016 Eggland’s Best “America’s Best Recipe” Contest

All you have to do is create a recipe that not only includes two whole Eggland’s Best eggs but also a locally-sourced ingredient(s) made popular by your state.  For example Georgia has peaches, Maine has lobsters and Florida has oranges.  Choosing Eggland’s Best eggs over ordinary eggs, are not only fresher, but also tastes better, and contains more vitamins and nutrients. Compared to ordinary eggs, each Eggland’s Bestegg offers four times more vitamin D, more than double the omega-3s, and contains 25% less saturated fat.

Here’s what you need to know:

You may enter up to two recipes in each of these four categories:

  1. Breakfast/Brunch
  2. Appetizer
  3. Main Course
  4. Dessert

Once you have your recipe ready for submission, you can head on over to the Eggland’s Best “America’s Best Recipe” Contest and submit your original recipe or recipes. But you only have until April 29… so don’t miss the deadline.

Recipes will be judged based on taste, creativity, and the inspiration behind the local recipe ingredients. After state winners are selected, Eggland’s Best will call on all Americans to help narrow down the Best in State recipes to five Best in Region winners.

The Best in Region recipes will be revealed on the Eggland’s Best website where EB fans will have the chance to vote for America’s Best Recipe!


The Grand Prize winner will be awarded $10,000 and a year’s supply of Eggland’s Best eggs, and Best in Region winners will receive $1,000 each!

As a kid did you ever eat ding dongs?

No, I’m not calling you a ding dong… I’m just asking if you had ever eaten one of these chocolate moist cakes filled with a marshmallow frosting glazed in a chocolate ganache…

So I ask again have you ever eaten a ding dong? 🙂

My grandmother used to always have these little packaged delights for an after school snack.  My cousin and I used to delight in knowing that after school we would be greeted with these and would rush home off the bus.  When we got down to the last pack in the box we would fight over who would get it and then would have to share it because my grandmother would make us…

Swirls of sweet buttery cinnamon sugar swirling throughout the moistest banana bread that will knock your socks off!

Cinnamon-Sugar Banana Bread

You know when you come across a good recipe and you just have to make it over and over.

Well I have always said that one of my all time favorite recipes to make is my grandmother’s recipes for Banana Bread.

CInnamon Sugar Banana bread






















I mean nothing makes a house smell better then homemade banana bread baking in the oven on a cold day.  I’m always thinking of different ways to change or mix up such a classic.  I sometimes add chocolate chips, peanut butter, nutella, and even banana bread with brown sugar cream cheese frosting — YUM!

Life with a 2 Year Old #lifecantbeyummier

19 Jan 2016 In: Family


So this little guy is turning two today! Can you believe it…

I can’t! I mean I feel like I was just pregnant with him and told my husband that we were having a third. Do you remember when I told you all that I was expecting…

I think I had to do a double take on the fact that it had been 8 years since our last one and were not prepared.  I remember like it was yesterday when Jacob came into this world, 5 weeks early at that also… that day was crazy but so beautiful at the same time.  Plus the kids were in there and saw their brother make his debut which we thought would be an experience they would forever cherish.

Pumpkin Alfredo Tortellini

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 Tablespoon Butter, unsalted
  • 1 small Shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup Fresh Pumpkin Puree or canned Pure Pumpkin
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated Nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pumpkin Spice
  • 1 1/4 cups Heavy Cream
  • A pinch of Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese, plus more for topping
  • Freshly ground pepper


  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Then add a heaping hand of salt. Add the tortellini and cook as the label directs. Reserve 1/2 cup cooking water, then drain the pasta.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shallot and garlic, cook, stirring, until slightly soft, about 2 minutes. Add the pumpkin and nutmeg and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Stir in the cream and bring to a low boil. Add red pepper flakes. Reduce the heat to medium low; simmer, stirring, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cheese and cook until thick, about 1 more minute. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Add the tortellini to the skillet and toss with the sauce, adding some of the reserved cooking water to loosen, if needed. Serve and Enjoy!

Homemade Pumpkin Puree

2 Nov 2015 In: Recipes



Pumpkins, Pumpkins everywhere… Pumpkins Pumpkins have no fear!

I don’t about you but do you remember how I said a few weeks ago, when I shared Pumpkin Spice French Toast, everywhere I turn I see pumpkins surrounding me.

Well, it’s still true.

From big ones, to small ones, to medium size carving ones.  Pumpkin season is out in full force.  Not only are pumpkins great for craving and making silly, scary faces… but they are even better when roasted and used to bake and cook with.


I used to always buy canned pureed pumpkin, now don’t get me wrong I still use the canned stuff… but sometimes making your own is even better.

Homemade Pumpkin Puree is so simple and easy to make, you will find yourself running to the store and buying a pie pumpkin to bake.
