Fruit and Veggie Juice, Breakfast Anyone?

This is the kind of breakfast that we have once in a while over the weekend. Well, not completely true since we have fresh fruit/veggie juice every day. The treat here is the baked eggs.
Actually the baked eggs are very simple to make, and great paired with a toast. You can always add spinach, tomatoes, ham, peppers…anything that you would add into an omelette, therefore very versatile.

For the juice, just combine any fruit/veggie and juice it! I have apple, beet, cucumber, carrot, tomato and celery in this particular juice.

Baked eggs


2 eggs
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon toasted bacon (in pieces)
Mozzarella cheese to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
½ teaspoon dry parsley
Extra butter to coat the ramekins


Preheat oven at 375F.

Coat the ramekins with butter and break the egg into each ramekin. Dot each egg with ½ spoon of butter, add the bacon. Top the egg with shredded mozzarella and sprinkle with salt, pepper and dry parsley.

Set the dishes in a baking pan and add enough water to cover at least 1/3 of the ramekins. Bring to simmer and transfer to a preheated 375F oven.

Bake until the egg whites are just set and the yolks are still soft.

Serve hot.

I hope you enjoy this breakfast and have a wonderful week!

Strawberry Infused Martini and Low-Carb Mojito

I want to share today some of our favorite Summer drinks…although I prefer a glass of a good red wine, my husband likes cocktail drinks, therefore I try to mix and match drinks using fresh fruits and herbs from my garden. These two drinks are very simple to make, tasty and so refreshing. The infused strawberry martini is very fruity and has a beautiful color. The low-carb mojito with gin is very refreshing…the addition of diet 7-up and agave nectar instead of regular 7-up and sugar is to balance the calories since alcohol contains “empty” calories :-), maybe this way I can have two drinks…
Lately I’ve been making drinks with fresh strawberries with basil and cucumber juice with mint which I’ll post later.

Infused Strawberry Martini

12 strawberries, washed and cut in half
3 tablespoon sugar or 2 tablespoon agave nectar
6 shots of vodka
1 shot of tequila
Strawberries for garnish

Macerate the strawberries with the sugar, add the vodka and tequila. Let it sit in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours (I usually leave overnight). Place ice in the shaker, add the infused strawberries mix in the shaker. Shake vigorously and pour in the martini glasses. Garnish with strawberry.

Low-Carb Mojito with Gin

8 to 10 fresh mint leaves
1 1/2 shot of gin
½ shot of fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon agave nectar
Diet 7-up
Crushed ice

Break the mint leaves and place them at the bottom of the glass, add the agave nectar, gin and lemon juice. Mix well, add the ice and top it with 7-up.
