Scrambled eggs are one of the world's simplest recipes. Once you've mastered the technique of cooking plain scrambled eggs, the possibilities of flavor combinations are endless.

Be sure to use the correct size pan, since cooking too few eggs in an oversized pan will result in burning.

Taco Bell is adding to the annual hype surrounding the World Series by launching its "Steal a Base, Steal a Taco" promotion. After the first base is stolen in the championship series, the company will give a free taco to anyone in the United States who wants one. According to the article from Reuters:
There has been at least one stolen base in every World Series matchup since 1990. When the first base is stolen, the unit of Yum Brands Inc. will announce a Tuesday afternoon when consumers will be able to walk into the chain's participating 5,800 outlets and ask for a free taco.
Technically no one will be stealing any tacos, as the fast food giant will be giving them away. I haven't had a Taco Bell taco in years, but looks like I'll be making an exception in the near future. What do you think? Will you steal a free taco?

I'll admit it: As much as I love trying new foods, when it comes to brunch, I always order some form of Eggs Benedict. I know I shouldn't always order the same thing, but I can't help myself, so I usually end up with poached eggs and hollandaise. How about you? Are there certain dishes you always order?
Would You Hire a Personal Chef? We all know that celebrities (and folks with a little extra dough) have personal chefs, and while it seems like a luxury, it turns out that more and more folks are ditching their house-cleaning services for private chefs. At $15 to $25 a head, it's really no more than going out to eat, and most personal chefs will tailor to your own food and diet preferences.
A traditional Native American food that was one of the first gifts given to the colonists. Hominy is dried, hull-less white or yellow corn kernels, where the hulls are removed by soaking the corn in a lye solution. When ground, the kernels are referred to as grits. Hominy is sold canned, ready to eat, or dried. It's also served as a side dish and is a common ingredient in posole.
Although my Halloween party starts later in the night — at 10 p.m. — I will have food. At larger parties where lots of alcohol may be consumed, it's best to offer guests a few savory nibbles to snack on throughout the night. Don't go gourmet, but keep things simple by serving classic, crowd-pleasing dishes.
I'll be pairing blue tortilla chips with green guacamole and gooey queso fundido. To keep the queso fundido warm, place it in a fondue bowl. Crispy cheese straws made from puff pastry round out the easy, no-fuss menu. For the recipes, read more
