Apparently pickiness and food jags are not just for kids. Case in point: How I like my eggs. Though I adore poached eggs, I can’t stand egg yolks that aren’t runny—When it comes to things like omelets and hard-boiled eggs, I’d rather skip the yolk altogether.

Almost two years later, I’m still doing pretty well on my 2012 New Year’s Resolution to eat more brunch (lunch for an early bird like me, but a rose by any other name…). Lately, it seems I can’t get enough of egg white omelets. After enjoying one last weekend after the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk, I went with variations on the theme this past Saturday and Sunday while out with friends who are visiting from France. What can I say—I like what I like.

I’m sure I’ll get the itch to move on to something new eventually, but for now, I’m enjoying my brunch fix. And hey, on the other end of the spectrum, I attempted—and pulled off—a basic comfort food dish I’ve always kind of wanted to learn: meatloaf. I came across this Coconut Diaries recipe for turkey pumpkin meatloaf on another blog (sorry I can’t remember which one!) and figured it seemed idiot-proof. It was also delicious. So yeah. Balance.

What’s your favorite kind of omelet?
