In this post I am not just sharing a recipe for an Egg & Cheese Scramble. There is so much more than what meets the eye. I have been wishing for so long to write this post. There is an amazing feeling that happens when someone I know & love has great success. As children success might be learning to walk, kick a ball & run like the wind. As adults, the idea of achievements gets a bit more complex. We strive for more in our personal & professional lives. We need to, we are adults after all. My friend Carrie Vitt has found great success in her gorgeous new book titled Deliciously Organic.
I met Carrie last year at a photography workshop in Los Angeles taught by photography darling miss Helen DuJardin aka Tartelette. Both of these women epitomize success. They radiate beauty both in & out. I happily call them friends & they always inspire me to be my best. Helen did all of the photography for this book. Each picture is a treat to gaze upon.
Sometimes we need to go back to the basics to re-group & get it right. Carrie makes cooking whole food meals at home accessible using the best most natural, organic ingredients. Facing health struggles a few years back she opted to make many changes in her diet to see if she could get well. Swapping all of her foods over to organic helped her overcome many health obstacles. Today she is one of the most energetic friends I know! We kept each other more than busy as roomies at Food Blogger Camp.
In Deliciously Organic Carrie shows us how to create & cook with a bounty of organics. What I love most is how simple & easy the recipes are. They are forgiving for the new cook & easily adaptable for anyone’s taste buds. A seasoned cook will welcome Carries ease & elegance. Her ingredient choices and combinations are full of flavor, classic, tried and true. A few recipes I can’t wait to try are: Gingerbread Pancakes, Napa Chicken Salad & Roasted Jalapeño Hamburgers.
Please keep up to date with Carrie via her blog Deliciously Organic where she updates posts regularly and via her Twitter feed.

What is your favorite recipe for scrambled eggs?
This recipe is inspired by “Cheesy Scrambled Eggs with Mushrooms” from Deliciously Organic cookbook
- Any cheese you have on hand would be great in this scramble. Goat cheese, Feta, Gruyére, Cojita, etc would all be delicious.
- Try wild mushrooms or Shitake, a mushroom medley would be amazing in this scramble.
- Serve with tortillas, lavash, brown rice or whole wheat toast.

Gorgeous! Can’t wait to post my recipe from the book this week 🙂 Talk soon girl!! xoxo
These look delicious, and speaking of delicious, I love Carrie’s new book. It is so beautiful, isn’t it? Have a great week!
Great post Marla & those eggs look divine! I’m coming over… 🙂
This looks absolutely delicious!
I am loving Carrie’s book! So many healthy and delicious recipes!
I love this recipe and the gorgeous photos, Marla! This is just my kind of breakfast. In fact, I’m posting about healthy breakfasts today and will include a link to this one. Happy Monday! 🙂
Susan: Thanks for the link love. I will be on the lookout for your breakfast post today & your new book!
great post, Marla, on food, community, and friendship!
The book sounds quite interesting….the scrambled eggs would make a great lunch for me.
What a great and sweet post. Can’t wait to check out her book!
What a yummy breakfast recipe. I’ll have to check out Carrie’s book. So exciting that bloggers these days can be published authors. I hope to see you write a cookbook one day, too, Marla! Lord knows you have the creativity and talent to pen one. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
Georgia: You are too kind. I do hope to write a cookbook someday – just not sure I am up for all that hard work. It is such an exciting time for our blogger friends. I think there is a lot of great stuff around the corner for such hard workers. Speaking of books, I could see you writing one too! xo
Beautiful post and recipe and ode to Carrie… she is such a sweet and talented girl. Kinda reminds me of you! 🙂
Great post Marla, sharing your friendship with Carrie and a delicious recipe from her new cookbook. I met Carrie at BlogHer Food in SF and was instantly struck by her genuineness and beautiful smile.
Jeanette: I had no idea you were at BlogHer Food in SF. Will you be in Atlanta in May for the next one? If so I hope to meet you there.
what a stunning way to start the morning!
Heather: “Stunning” used to be my grandma’s favorite word & it always makes me smile 🙂
I can’t think of a better way to start the day than this delicious meal! Such a sweet post too — a huge congrats to Carrie!
Faith: I am ready for your book girl – that would be a dazzler! xo
Awww, you’re so sweet, Marla! Right back at you, gorgeous! XO
What a gorgeous post! The photos are so great. I can’t wait to try this variation especially with the lavash bread. The photo of your daughter with the “thumbs-up” is so sweet. You are a dear friend. I’m so glad you were brought into my life!
Carrie: Ditto girl – you are are a wonderful & dear friend. This was one of the most fun posts I have ever written. It is awesome to know some of the behind the scenes regarding what it takes to publish a book. The amount of work is amazing, but in your case it more than paid off. In my next life I want your extreme patience & focus! xo
Beautiful! That looks so appetizing. You are certainly very creative.
Would love to have it at breakfast!
Thanks for the review and for the amazing set of food photos. I look at everyone’s photos with a new eye lately.
Omg I think I need to buy your lens. Seriously. It’s an investment in quality. I think I just have to have it….
Averie: Yes, these investments for our job are essential & well worth it. Just remember you can also get the “shot” with a small point & shoot as long as you have the right light, styling & subject matter. Out of all the things I have learned from the pros it is not to get caught up in fancy gear, that can just make us all the more confused. First & foremost we need to understand light & composition. Even the best lens & camera will not get the shot on it’s own. That said, with enough patience & practice I bet you will get your photos where you want them. Keep practicing, asking questions & checking out other peoples stuff for lighting & composition ideas. xo
These pictures are amazing!I follow you on Bloglovin’!
Check out my LIGHT and DIET-LIKE cook blog on
Today I cooked LIGHT risotto with radicchio and pears!!!
Oh that looks so good…. thank you! Your food photography is amazing by the way…. I always love your pics!
I’m loving Carrie’s book. The eggs look delicious!
one of my favorite breakfasts ever – seriously, i make this AT LEAST once a week!
These look delicious!!
The cookbook sounds amazing!!
And your photos are beautiful!!
This looks fabulous!
I love scrambled eggs served any way, they are just so comforting…
especially when my Mom makes them.
I love the stacks! What an achievement and a beautiful book.
the tortilla layers are a great idea. I can only imagine what it would be like with phylo dough
OMG, phylo dough – are you kidding girl. There would be no end to that meal. Great idea. That reminds of of the giant pieces of Spanakopita I used to enjoy when I live in NYC, except this would be egg with cheese instead of spinach and cheese. I likey 🙂
What a wonderful write-up on Carrie, her book, and this recipe. I have been flipping through Carrie’s book what to try first – there are so many great choices. This one definitely caught my eye.
Dara: I know when I got Carrie’s book I could not stop flipping through the pages. It was tough to decide which recipe to adapt for this post. In the end I always have most of these ingredients in the house, so scrambled eggs prevailed. Can’t wait to see & read about what you come up with! xo
This looks awesome! I was going to make this recipe myself to post, but now I’ll just make it, eat it, and make something else to post about later!
Delicious and once again Marla your photo’s are beautiful. I love Carrie’s new book and I was thinking about making this recipe this coming weekend. Now I know it’s a must.
Have a great week!
Lovely. I couldn’t decide what to make.
Love the Carrot Souffle’ – I doubled the recipe and it was GONE!
Sandy: I know it was a tough decision what to make. I must do the carrot souffle very soon! I do believe I will get through the whole cookbook eventually 🙂
Mmmm. Fabulous. Love the thumbs-up review!
I just ordered her book based on your recommendation and
can’t wait to get it. As for the food in this post-I love it!
Breakfast so happens to be my favorite meal, but I can also see
having this for dinner!
Love the way you stacked the eggs in between layers. Looks delicious!
Ohhh Marla! Your photos are absolutely fabulous!!! I LOVE
eggs with mushrooms and cheese, delish! I will look for the
cookbook at Amazon….. Cheers! Lisa
What a great tribute to your friend and her wonderful
sounding cookbook, Marla. Love the way you’ve put this excellent
egg dish together!
Congrats to Carrie! The book looks gorgeous and sounds like a real winner!
You are such a good friend! I can’t wait to get her book.
for me, a simple combination of eggs, butter, milk, cheese, salt, and pepper does the trick just fine. 🙂
This looks fabulous!
The books sounds like it should be in my collection. Sounds
fabulous. Your photos are stunning as well- she’s a great teacher!
This scrambled eggs are perfect for my house hold. I am definitely
bookmarking this. My son loves scrambled eggs, tortillas and
I could eat eggs every day, especially when my hens are in gear. 🙂 these look fabulous. 🙂
I love mushrooms and onions in my scrambled eggs, you have totally inspired me to make some scrambled egg wraps for breakfast or lunch sometime this week! I just picked up a pack of baby bellas, my favorite!
The more I see this book, the more I want it! Great post Marla!!
Beautifully shot! What an excellent version of the traditional scrambled egg breakfast and with the flavourful addition of Crimini mushrooms! Thanks for sharing your version!
