Lately, I have just not had the time or inclination to get crazy in the kitchen.
But I still get bored by the same things over and over again.
The solution: Eggs.
Egg-based recipes are easy to shop for, easy to cook, and usually pretty good.
This onion frittata from the May 2011 issue of Bon Appetit is a great example:
It was super easy to make and, with a salad, made a perfect dinner.
We also liked the huevos rancheros from - of all places - the Williams Sonoma catalog:
I used a jar of Ceriello tomato sauce instead of making my own roasted sauce
(not that I'm opposed to making my own...I just didn't have time).
Both satisfying, cheap and - most importantly - so simple.
