Hello everyone! My name is Keelin and I have been interning for Inspiring Kitchen the past couple months. As an incoming senior in college, I will be living in what my university calls a “Senior House”–this is basically a fancier way to say that I will be living in a small off-campus house with a bunch of girls my age (six others to be exact). Needless to say, I am very excited to move in and start my last year of school.

Fresh Healthy Vegetable Omelets To Go

Posted by | Bakeware, Housewares, Recipes | 44 Comments

Having a healthy breakfast is the way to start your day off on the right foot. But sometimes finding time to make it is the challenge. With the start of spring, my goal is to create easy, healthy, on-the-go types of dishes. Since eggs are perfect for any time of day, this was a great place to begin. 

Most people have muffin pans in their kitchen. Have you ever wondered if there is another way to use them? Well, how about making individual omelets that you can make and eat like you would a cupcake? No fork needed.
