What’s For Breakfast? Avocado Baked Eggs 8

UPC’s Avocado Baked Eggs On the heels of giving an “Epic-Fail” grade in my The Egg Project post yesterday, I’m heading back to eggs today. The truth is, despite my dissatisfaction with the eggs I graded for yesterday’s post; I always keep several cartons of my favorite Ameruacana Eggs from […]

The Egg Project – The Country Hen Eggs (Hint: Not Top-Tier) 3

The Country Hen Eggs As you’ll see below, these had one of the more interesting boxes on the shelf and so attracted my attention. Inside the box, there is a message that states that these were the original cage-free egg, apparently from 1988. I find this claim impressive, and worthy […]


Bacon Egg Cups 11

UPC’s Bacon Egg Cups I’ve been mulling over how I want this recipe to come out for some time. I’ve seen various versions of this floating around the internet. It was hugely popular this past spring, and I think I saw it pop up on several of my frequent haunts […]

The Egg Project – Vital Farms Pastured Eggs 12

Vital Farms Pastured Eggs I’ve heard a lot about these. If you spend any time at all looking at the egg section of Whole Foods Market, some helpful person will walk up and suggest the Vital Farms eggs. If you ask “Why” you’ll get some sort of answer along the […]


What’s For Lunch? Smoked Salmon Bento Box

UPC’s Smoked Salmon Bento Box Ok, I’ll admit it… I’m an addict! I’m an unmitigated food addict. It’s always been my “drug of choice,” so to speak, and that hasn’t changed one iota over the years. And I love it!! “I’m UPC, and I’m an addict.” “Welcome UPC.” All jokes […]

The Egg Project – Natures Yoke Pastured Eggs

Natures Yoke Pastured Eggs I’ve really been enjoying The Egg Project. Honestly, I have to admit this, but I have probably been enjoying this as much as I enjoy The Bacon Project. *GASP* How could I?! Yes, I know, that’s terribly un-carnivore of me… Sort of. If being “un-carnivore” was […]


The Egg Project – Pete and Gerry’s Heirloom Harans Eggs

Pete and Gerry’s Harans Heirloom Eggs I was so impressed with the egg quality and flavor, as well as the color of the yolk in my previous post on Pete and Gerry’s Ameruacana Eggs (no, that’s not a typo), that I picked up the other version of Heirloom Eggs that Pete […]

What’s For Lunch? UPC’s Bento-Boxes

UPC’s Salad Bento Boxes I’ve shared pictures of my lunch salads before, but today’s post is somewhat special. My wife and I making a concerted effort to remove unnecessary plastic from our lives. There are a couple of reasons for that, but the biggest one is an attempt to reduce […]


What’s For Breakfast? Salad Eggs

UPC’s Salad Eggs The weather here in the NYC area was idyllic over the weekend. It was stunningly beautiful all day Saturday and all day Sunday! I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better weekend! Not only was the weather excellent, but it couldn’t have possibly been a better test […]

The Egg Project – Handsome Brook Farm Organic Pasture Raised 21

Handsome Brook Farm Organic Pasture Raised In my recent trip to Whole Foods looking for some top-quality pastured soy-free eggs, I stumbled across Handsome Brook Farm Eggs. Handsome Brook Farm only does one kind of eggs, as far as I can tell, and they try to keep them at the […]
