Donate a Breakfast Today - It's Seriously Easy.

A sponsored hip + urban girl post.

We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It kick-starts your metabolism and gives you energy so you can focus on taking care of business. We would hate to see anyone go without breakfast, especially disadvantaged children who go to school hungry. So let’s do something about it!

MSN.ca has launched their National Breakfast Campaign and we’re here to help spread the word. For every homepage reset, Microsoft Canada will donate a breakfast to Boys and Girls Clubs on Canada. We want to help them hit their target of 100,000 breakfast donations and all you have to do is make one easy click and you’ve given a child in need, a breakfast. It’s seriously that easy.

The Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada helps over 200,000 children, youth and their families every year with 700 community locations across Canada. Many clubs provide meals, physical education, social development and family support.

Tell your friends on Facebook about it, by ‘toasting’ your profile photo and posting it on The Wall of Toast. Share the cause and your photo with your friends and we can all make a difference. See how hug got toasted (above).

Make This! Perfect Scrambled Eggs. No more rubbery weirdness, just light and fluffy perfection care of Bill Granger. I followed his instructions last weekend and I swear by his tips.

2 large free range eggs
6 tbsp single cream or full cream milk
A knob of butter

1) Lightly whisk the eggs, cream and a pinch of salt together until all the ingredients are just combined and the mixture has one consistency.

2) Heat a small non-stick frying pan for a minute or so, then add the butter and let it melt. Don't allow the butter to brown or it will discolour the eggs. Pour in the egg mixture and let it sit, without stirring, for 20 seconds. Stir with a wooden spoon, lifting and folding it over from the bottom of the pan. Let it sit for another 10 seconds then stir and fold again.

3) Repeat until the eggs are softly set and slightly runny in places, then remove from the heat and leave for a few seconds to finish cooking. Give a final stir and serve the velvety scramble without delay.

That's how you get perfect scrambled eggs. Try it this week or for brunch this weekend. Now go donate that breakfast for a child in need.
