What do you do when you unexpectedly end up with over two dozen fresh eggs? Well, eggs are pretty versatile in the kitchen, but I didn’t want to have to make dozens of different things just to use them up. I wanted to quickly half the quantity of available eggs on hand so they wouldn’t [...]
Do you tend to forget how awesome some foods are if you haven’t had them in a while? I do. I definitely forgot how awesome chimichurri was with steak until last weekend. I was over at a friend’s house and they grilled some beef and served it with chimichurri. Now, chimichurri isn’t unusual, but I [...]
A few weeks ago a made a tasty cheese souffle. It was such a smashing success that I knew I’d have to make it again. I’m rarely content making the exact same dish twice; I normally look for a small change that can be tweaked to subtle change the dish. As I’ve come into a [...]
What wine goes with eggs?
That question was actually the title of a song from The Intelligence that my brother sprung on me. It was a fun little exchange, but I wasn’t that satisfied by my answers. I never conducted the proper research to find out what could work.

Well actually, there are plenty of choices: cage-free, pasteurized, organic, etc. But many people don’t pay attention to what they buy. I’ve been a [...]
Glad to be back after a school related lapse. I will be continuing my trek through the Good Eats episodes with scrambled eggs from the first Egg Files episode. After going through life with mediocre scrambled eggs, I jumped at the opportunity to try a recipe different from my parents’ recipe. As it turns out, [...]
I don’t know where I got the first idea to roll an omelette instead of just folding it, but I’m pretty sure it’s been done before. I like to pretend I’m the first person to discover it as this was just something I lazily figured out Sunday morning as I was cooking some eggs.
My original [...]
The newest hip hop & eggs came out a few days ago and I have been slack about telling you about it. They talk hip hop and make some eggs, what’s not to like? Also, fans of Deep Blue Sea will be thrilled to hear that they asked LL Cool J when Deep Blue Sea 2 [...]
