Cheesy Egg Wraps

Fill tortillas with scrambled eggs, shredded cheese, and sautéed bell peppers, bacon, and jalapeño. Fold into a burrito and toast in a hot skillet until crispy and golden. These are perfect for breakfast or for a weeknight dinner, and they freeze well.

Pressure Cooker Boiled Eggs

“Boiling” eggs in an electric pressure cooker gives you consistent results and eggs that are really easy to peel.

Yield: 6 eggs Total time: 30 minutes

Soy Eggs

We’ve fallen in love with the soy-marinated boiled eggs found at ramen shops and the festivals at Leo’s school, and they’re so easy to make at home. We use medium-boiled eggs (though the little dude likes them hard-boiled), and soak them in a solution of soy sauce, sherry vinegar, and sugar.

Yield: 6 eggs Total time: 6 hours 30 minutes

Guy & Leo’s Ham & Egg Cups

Including small kids in meal preparation is a great way to pass on healthy eating habits and to foster a sense of family. Leo loves to watch and help us cook (and has always loved to crack eggs), so this is a great recipe for him.

Guy helps him line muffin tins with sliced ham, add cheese, crack an egg into each cup, and top with halved cherry tomatoes. The cups bake for 20 minutes and are a delicious breakfast.

(Kids may prefer that their eggs be scrambled in the cups.)

Avocado, Prosciutto, & Egg Open-Faced Sandwiches

These sandwiches are the perfect weeknight dinner after a long day at work. They take no time at all to make, but are so delicious.

Perfectly Boiled Eggs

I love soft-boiled 5-minutes eggs with softer yolks, but Leo prefers his eggs to sit for 6 minutes. These instructions allow you to cook the eggs to your liking.

Yield: 6 eggs Total time: 20 to 30 minutes

Poached Eggs

Perfectly poached eggs are the cornerstone of a good life. This technique makes them easy enough to cook before the caffeine from your coffee has kicked in.

Yield: 4 eggs Total time: 20 minutes

Richard’s Cheese & Sausage Bake

I got an e-mail a few weeks ago with the subject “Another Levesque Recipe,” but it wasn’t from any of my dad’s relatives that I knew. It was from Richard Levesque, a very nice gentleman from Houston who ended up being related to us about eight generations back. He had found this site on the Internet and decided to ask if our family trees were intertwined. They are – we’re both descendants of Robert Levesque who settled in Quebec around 1679.

In this recipe, browned sausage, pancake batter, and cheese create a tasty brunch casserole.

Yield: 4 generous servings Total time: 1 hour

Linguine Carbonara

This incredibly rich dish of butter, bacon, Parmesan cheese, egg, and pasta is actually pretty easy to make and is perfect for a special dinner.

Yield: 4 servings Total time: 30 minutes

Leesa’s Thai Spicy Noodles

This is one of my favorite recipes, one that I used to make often for family and friends. Rice noodles, lime juice, ground peanuts, and fish sauce are a delicious combination. I typically omit the bean sprouts. And yes, you really use a whole tablespoon of red pepper flakes. Trust me.
