The routine consists of the alarm going off at 5:15 and being downstairs working out to a dvd by 5:30, after exercising I mediate, pray, and then read my scriptures. I really do love this routine because I get my essentials done 1st thing in the morning and I'm usually showered and ready before my son even gets on the bus!

I've been making this egg recipe for years and when I realized a few months ago it wasn't on the blog it got moved to the top of the to do list! This is one of those recipes you just keep making because it's SO easy and SO good. With a lot of quiches or egg cups you have to cook onions or veggies on the stove before putting them into the recipe, this recipe doesn't, which makes it so easy! You use pantry staples like chopped green chilis and roasted red peppers to get your flavor and veggies, and you won't be disappointed.
