April is always a breakout month in my perfect world. With winter coats and boots packed away, I’m looking at sweatshirts and puddle jumping with Sam. Since our dog needs to be walked, it’s the perfect excuse to explore the neighborhood and note what flowers are blinking at the sun. Kite flying, bubble blowing and soaking up the fresh air are priority items. Everything seems new!
Even Burnbrae Farms is all about the new spring season. When you go to buy their farm-fresh eggs you’ll notice they’re doing some rebranding with packaging, but the eggs are the same high quality products you’re familiar with. For the next couple of months you’ll see teaser egg packaging and when June hits, there will be an official rebrand launch.
Burnbrae also has a new Mascot: Gregg the Egg. I hear he’s fun, loveable and eager to share everything he knows about eggs. A good egg kind of guy…you might say he’s well-rounded, with an eggcellent personality. You might.

HUEVOS RANCHEROPrint Pin Rate
- 6 corn tortillas
- 6 eggs
- ½ T butter
- ¼ to ½ cup water
- 1 can black beans
- 1 16- ounce jar salsa
- Toppings: cheese sour cream, shredded lettuce, tomato, avocado
- In a blender, pour half the can of black beans and half the jar of salsa. Blend or pulse on low for 5-10 seconds. The mixture should still be lumpy.

- Preheat oven and baking stone to 500 degrees. Once preheated, place tortillas on the stone and cook for 1 minute on each side, or until brown.
- In a skillet (with a lid), melt ½ T butter over medium heat. Crack egg into skillet and pour in water to just cover the bottom of the pan. Cover with lid and let simmer and steam for 1-2 minutes or until the egg yolk is at the desired doneness.
