guacamole


Holy guacamole! Ok, not really, but one of the first times serving it for public consumption was with church friends.

turkish eggs

Poached eggs in any dish: I'm sold. The reigning champion in my heart has been eggs benedict, but there's been a duel for that top slot after trying Turkish eggs.

My first encounter was at Public's brunch, here in NYC for a friend's birthday last Fall.
Most recipes call for melted butter, but I chose to modify a version from FoodNetwork that will less likely clog our blood vessels.























Here's a short & easy version:

TURKISH EGGS

poached eggs, on top of Greek yogurt (minced garlic optional)
drizzle with some paprika and olive oil
top with chopped chives
(salt & pepper to taste)
done.
