5-Minute Soft Boiled Eggs (Runny Yolks!)

Diane Sanfilippo BREAKFAST, SNACKS, Videos 5 Comments

I was first inspired to try making soft-boiled eggs at home after eating the seriously delicious gluten-free avocado toast from Jane here in San Francisco. My first attempt was just a tad overcooked (no runny yolks!), but I’m happy to say after a couple of tries I nailed it and was able to enjoy a couple of perfect soft boiled eggs on top …

These smashed and roasted new potatoes aren’t a super-fast dish to make since they take a while to bake, but they’re so, so good that I recommend you make a double batch and simply re-heat them in an oven or toaster oven to enjoy for a few meals – they’re worth it! grain-free • gluten-free • dairy-free • egg-free • nut-free • seed-free • 21DSD (energy …

One of the toughest parts of going Paleo is foregoing (former) favorite foods, especially those that are tied to ethnic, traditional dishes. We all get a bit nostalgic about the foods of our childhoods, even if we no longer want to eat them.

Attending college in upstate New York at Syracuse University (go Orange!), I think I probably ate my weight in chicken wings every year. Now, instead of wings that are …
