Where Would You LOVE to Cook Today?

Such an inviting Kitchen!
It look so clean and fresh
and I really want to see the rest of this house.
Doesn't it look like a fun place to cook.
I found this picture over at:
Fun blog to just sit and read.
But make sure you have a cup of tea because you
be clicking "older posts" for a few minutes...LOL
maybe longer.
So in my "blogging around" I found the perfect
 thing to cook in this kitchen over at:
I love her blog!
You have got to stop by and say Hi!
Her blog is so addicting and you will want to
cook everythingon her blog.
And since I want to see the whole
house I better got for breakfast cooking.
This recipe looked perfect:
Pop-Eye Eggs with Cheese and Salsa

(Ingredients given are for two servings, recipe adapted by Kalyn with memories of Pop-Eye Eggs made by her mother.)
1 tsp+ 1 tsp olive oil
2 pieces whole wheat bread (I use Jack Spratt Bread sprouted wheat bread.)
2 large eggs
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
1/4 cup low-fat grated cheese (I use Four Cheese Mexican Blend)
salsa for serving, optional but good
Have all ingredients ready on counter. Use a small juice glass to cut a hole directly in the center of each piece of bread. (I use a glass that's 2 1/4 inches across, and save the holes from the bread to make whole wheat bread crumbs. You can also toast the holes and dip them in the egg.)
Use a heavy frying pan large enough to hold both pieces of bread. Heat the pan for about 30 seconds over medium heat, brushing the pan with 1 tsp. olive oil. Add the pieces of bread and cook until one side is browned and toasted, about 2-3 minutes. Turn pieces of bread over.
Drizzle 1/2 tsp. of oil into the center of each piece of bread and immediately break an egg into the hole, being careful not to break the egg. Season eggs with salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste, then sprinkle each piece of bread with about 2 tablespoons of grated cheese. Cover pan and cook until cheese is melted, egg white is firm, and yolks are as done as you'd like them, about 3-4 minutes. (I cook mine for about 3 minutes in a cast iron pan for a slightly runny yolk.)
Serve hot, with salsa drizzled over if desired.
