Baked Eggs with Asparagus and Watercress

Easter is around the corner. Oui ?

I have chocolate cravings.

Cravings of eggs too.

I wrote this Baked Eggs recipe for the Boston Globe, which was featured this past Wednesday, in preparation for Easter.

Enjoy, if you happen to make it.

I also wanted to let you know about the Second Food Blog Awards that Saveur Magazine is organizing.

When I bought my May 2011 print issue, I was excited to find my blog name (and a picture of one my desserts) in it–along Cez from Café Fernando, Deb from Smitten Kitchen and Lisa from Homesick Texan–as the four of us won an award in the 2010 Food Blog Awards last year.

The page announces the 2011 Food Blog Awards. And Saveur accepted nominations until April 22d. The voting to select your favorite blogs will start shortly after.

Bonnes fêtes de Pâques ! Happy Easter !


  1. Congrats — well-deserved. When I discovered your blog several years ago, it was a great inspiration to me as I began to conceive of my own. Sometimes I have you photographs for breakfast.

  2. Congrats on your Saveur award! You deserve it and then some!!

    These eggs look amazing. And congrats on being featured in the Globe!

    I linked your last post back about Turks and Caicos in my last post highlighting my fave food and posts of the week 🙂

  3. Felicitations Bea. I’m sure I will be seeing more of you in this years Saveur nominations and awards 🙂

  4. Je croise les doigts Béa!
    Et te souhaite de Joyeuses Pâques 🙂
    (la photo du dessert est vraiment super jolie!)

  5. I feel like this oeufs en cocotte is shouting “make me!” at me. Okay, bookmarked.

    I wish you all the luck for the 2011 Saveur Food Blog Awards! But I’m sure there are enough of us who feel inspired by your work.

  6. Congrats on your award….you certainly deserve it! Love the eggs, too~a favorite of mine taught to me by my French sister!

  7. This. is. beautiful. The style of your blog is so fresh and whimsical. Its wonderful to pop in here and soak in the prettiness. Wonderful looking egg dish in sweet dishes. Good luck with 2011 awards!

  8. Happy Easter! The egg dish looks great, the dessert too. We’re having a Greek inspired menu and a variation of your dark chocolate and raspberry cake with chocolate mousse dessert. I’ll keep my eye on the Saveur nominations, you’ll always get my vote. Hope your Easter Sunday is as sunny and warm as ours, finally!

  9. Ouh la la, moi qui adore les oeufs, ces photos sont géniales et j’ai très envie d’essayer votre recette. On doit mettre les ramequins dans quelque chose avec de l’eau si j’ai bien compris dans le four, ou l’on peut les mettre juste tous seuls?

  10. Oh, my favorite treat in Uganda was baked eggs! One of the restaurants served them occasionally and you’ve just taken me back to those wonderful mornings. I will have to try and make them myself now.

  11. Golly, those eggs looks glorious… I also just did a gorgeous egg recipe though, from Skye Gyngell’s book My Favourite Ingredients.

    Congrats on the nomination!


  12. aw while you photograph the baked eggs so beautifully, i’m afraid the coconut lime gratin is more up my alley! of course both are gorgeous, and congratulations on your awards! you definitely deserve it!

  13. Congratulations!

    And those eggs look devine! I was wondering where I can purchase those egg dishes/ramekins?

  14. Congratulations on the award, your photographs are as beautiful as i am sure is the food .Love your vacation pics as well. Keep up the great work, you are an inspiration. Thank you for sharing. Regards Neil

  15. Congratulations! I just read that you won this morning and am recommending you to a friend whose son has celiac.

  16. Ooh you always make food so real and inviting! We have fresh eggs each morning that our lovely chicks happily lay for us each day – this recipe is perfecto! Congrats on the write-up in the Boston Globe – I’d be beside myself and giddy with such an honor 🙂

  17. Looks like a gold medal winner in Paula Deen’s cooking competition! Does anyone know anything about it? I think it’s called Real Women of Philadelphia? I want to win big with Paula!!!! 😉

  19. Wow your photos are amazing and everything looks so delicious! I’m dreaming food now tonight for sure!

  20. I know a lot of folks who don’t eat eggs (they’re allergic, for health reasons, or concerns about animal cruelty). Here’s an awesome site that gives tips on cooking and baking without eggs:
