Just occasionally you get a very large egg from your chooks. This one is from a new girl that we've had for around a month. At the weekend they were allowed into the veg plot area because hubby was digging and pulling up grass. Quite a few of the girls laid much bigger eggs than normal over...
My daughter just called me. She is going to a Retro party and she asked me for some suggestions. After some searching around, we came up with this recipe. THEN she tells me the party is tonight. So, since it sounds real good to me, thought I would share it here with you all. Might be a...
I saw this article about A Review of 5 Different Egg Poaching Methods in the news feed I get on my tablet and clicked on it. I think I'm going to try the No-fuss method when I make poached eggs for 1 of our meals this week. I already use a similar method for boiling eggs and it works perfectly...
I was wondering if anyone knew anything (including the name) about a different ways to cook eggs that my husband came across this morning.
He was in a hotel, so did ask but only got part of the method and had forgotten the name. The egg white was cooked and set but still totally clear so he...
While looking through my recipes from Germany for the alphabet game, I came across this recipe. Simple and easy and going in our "make soon" folder.
1 lb. fresh spinach
8 slices bacon
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
3 TB. vinegar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 hard-cooked eggs...
This economical dish is very easy to make but it does take time to cook. The plus side is that the preparation time is minimal. The slow reduction of the sauce ensures maximum flavour and although it may seem strange to cook eggs for so long, I think it does improve their flavour and its not...

Please help me. My wife has begun to draw my attention to the layer of black pepper that surrounds the front burners of our stove after I’m done cooking. She concludes that I was being careless when I use the pepper mill over my eggs in the morning. I didn’t quite believe it, but I've tried to...
Making foams is great fun and much easier than some other ‘modernist cooking’ techniques. You will need lecithin powder and a stick blender. I managed to find some white miso which was nearly white in colour (a lot are more yellow or browny beige than white). The brown butter adds a nutty...
The Mexican spice achiote (annatto) has a wonderful ability to colour food yellow. Its often used in the manufacture of margarine, butter and cheese to achieve a golden colour. If you steep shelled hard boiled eggs in an achiote water salution they will turn a beautiful yellow colour and take on...
i make these periodically mainly for family and friends. Mg showed some eggs she stuffed but not scotch eggs,these come deep fried with a beef sausage meat wrapped around the egg. I put a wee bit of tomato relish on the meat to wrap around the egg.
Classic carbonara has egg yolk, Pecorino Romano, guanciale, black pepper, pasta and maybe some pasta water, that's it. But, it seems like sometimes you end up with scrambled eggs and pasta. This method virtually eliminates that possibility.
This recipe also is not classic in that it uses...
