Why is vinegar in nearly every recipe I want to make?? I had no idea it was in all my favorite foods.

Coming up soon: the results from Friday’s homemade mayonnaise and sweet potato fries! Get excited. 🙂


Jen’s Every Day Bacon ‘n Egg Breakfast Sandwich

Buy these.

Buy these.

The aim of this week’s cooking was solely to empty the fridge of groceries in the few hours I was at home. Today’s lunch was a bacon and egg breakfast sandwich. As I didn’t have any fresh green onion to add to my eggs, I considered some fresh jalapenos. Brilliant idea! Not really, actually.

I sliced the pepper up, remembering the seeds are the hottest part of the fruit. Then I had a second thought; I tasted the pepper not sure of the taste combo I was putting together – OMG!!! Soooooo hot. I had never had a fresh jalapeno without cheese or something wrapped around it. My lips were burning and before too long so was my face.  Apparently, it was a visible fire. So, uh, don’t cut hot peppers and then touch your burning lips… or any part of your face. 🙂 And while you are at it, think twice before adding it to your breakfast sandwich. Mine tasted just fine without it.

Sans pepper, the sandwich was really great! My sister had purchased Arnold’s Sandwich Thins. They will be a repeat purchase, for sure.


  • 2 strips bacon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon milk
  • handful low-fat cheddar cheese
  • Arnold’s sandwich thin
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat pan to medium high to crisp bacon.
  2. Drain majority of grease and use remainder to scramble eggs over medium low to medium heat.
  3. With a whisk, beat eggs over heat, with a tablespoon of milk.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Add bacon, egg and cheddar cheese to toasted sandwich thin.
  6. Yum.

Um, I know this isn’t really a recipe, but I did say I’d share any of my follies in the kitchen. Huzzah!
