Go Green for Breakfast with Healthy Green Eggs and Ham Recipe

It’s time to experiment for St. Patrick’s Day! Why not go green for breakfast? Earlier this month, we celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday by creating a fun Green Eggs & Ham recipe.

5 Things You Didn’t Know You Could Make in the Air Fryer

While the Instant Pot seems to have taken over, I have been enchanted with my new kitchen gadget – The Air Fryer. I received the NuWave 6 qt.
