I grew up eating in my mother’s luncheonette and my favorite way she prepared my eggs were poached. This is a healthy option since no fat is added when cooking. The easiest way to make this is with an egg poacher, but you can easily make them without as I did here following these simple steps.

My mantra is cooking doesn’t have to be complicated, if you use quality ingredients, you will achieve great results. I prefer to cook with whatever fresh vegetables are in season and I keep my kitchen stocked with good olive oils, cheeses and spices.
