I am sorry for not posting on Tuesday last week and yesterday. There is so much that has been happening on so many levels and I needed some time to step back and think.

I was going to write about all the things that have been weighing on my mind, the news and terrible images from Aleppo, the news from Jordan, some personal defeats and betrayals that hurt..But since the world seems to have so much hate and ugliness at the moment, I have decided to shift my attention and focus on the beauty around me instead of feeding the ugliness. It seems that the need to slow down and focus on the full half of the cup increases with every passing day and in that spirit, I am sharing a few pictures I took over the past week of things that brought me joy. I do hope that you’ll take a moment to slow down and enjoy them and if you have an extra minute, share a beautiful moment that you have experienced this past week with me in the comments. I really can’t tell you how much joy your comments and support mean to me.

How to poach eggs perfectly

The perfect poached egg. Tender whites around a warm liquid yolk that oozes out like liquid gold when you cut into it. Place it on top of a salad and it turns into a meal. Place it on top of your favorite vegetables and you have brunch. Layer an English muffin with smoked cheese, roast beef and a poached egg and you have a fancy breakfast to rival that served in hotels and restaurants.

If you have never poached an egg before and you are intimidated by it, don’t be. It is much easier than you think. There are just a couple of “secrets” to learn and you will get perfect  poached eggs every single time.
