As a momma to six kiddos, every Tuesday I am sharing my tips, recipes and anecdotes related to bringing out every kid’s culinary potential.

Scrambled Eggs in a Mug

Last week, I began my fifth year as the Seminary teacher for a wonderful group of high school students.  They come to class every school day morning, at a bright and early 6:00 am to be instructed and grow their religious education.  As their teacher, I am continually amazed at their faith, dedication and commitment to what they believe.  It is an honor to be their teacher.After class is over each morning, I have to resume my regular role of Mom and rush to get my kids out the door in 30 minutes.  To say it is a crazy and hectic half hour would be quite the understatement.  It is mayhem.

One of the biggest stress inducers is what the kids are going to eat for breakfast because most mornings, they are on their own while I am packing lunches, styling hair, signing daily assignments and getting little ones dressed.  Cold cereal is easy, but it isn’t my favorite as a Mom.  Not only is it mega expensive, it usually isn’t the healthiest option out there either.  That is when amazingly simple breakfast options like these Scrambled Eggs in a Mug save the day!  Not only can my kids make it for themselves, it takes less than a couple minutes from start to finish!

This is in regards to your wonderful sounding recipe for carrot and zucchini with cream cheese frosting. Should I try and remove the liquid from the zucchini before incorporating it into the mixture> I can’t wait to make this sounds delicious.. Thank you.

Fran – do not remove the liquid from the zucchini first. You need that moisture to make the cake nice and moist -Carole
