Paul,

That lemon parsley puree looks and sounds delicious. I have lemons. I have parsley. Now I need a little guidance, please.

I had some organic Parsley left ( I just washed  it) _  one bunch with stems( every thing ) / squeeze of one lemon ( have a press, for good extraction )/ pinch of course salt/  Now I used Costco Tuscan olive oil ( just enough to get it mixing )

 

Blitzed in a Vita-Mix  till emulsivied

 

Did taste really good..  --and seems to be color stable

 

btw--I bought your Spiralizer too  ( thanks for the tip )

 

Cheers Doc

Yes..u are correct...

 

But  real easy to do .ie

 

I have some microwavable flat bowls, about 5 " in diameter/  I scrambled a raw egg/ add the chorizo/ salt /pepper    Microwaved it 1 min..perfect circle everytime

 

You could get more volume with 2 eggs but I dont eat much

I had to test out my purchase for breakfast this morning

Anna – your KA Harvest bread looks much better than theirs – you should send them that picture!  I plan to make this soon.  Any hints or things that you did differently? 

 

Not cooking a lot of breakfasts these days (except for dinner).  Weekdays are just me, and I am not much of an early breakfast person.  Saturdays we are usually up and out early running errands and Sundays we usually go out somewhere after church.  But I’m reading a book in which the main character has boiled eggs for breakfast almost every morning, so I got an urge for eggs.  Not hard boiled – I wanted soft boiled (my nemesis) and decided to tackle them again.  Breakfast this morning:

med_gallery_3331_117_129800.jpg

Nearly perfect soft boiled eggs.  The top left one was still slightly snotty around the yolk, but a couple of seconds in the microwave fixed that.  This was the America’s Test Kitchen steam method.  You place the eggs in 1/2-inch of boiling water, cover and let boil for 6 1/2 minutes, then rinse with cold water for 30 seconds.  I’ll try this again tomorrow for 7 minutes.  Easiest and most straightforward method I’ve ever tried.  According to ATK, you can use this method for 1-6 large, extra large or jumbo eggs with no change of timing.

Hey weinoo,

 

Your photo looks like the most perfect shirred egg I've ever seen. The yolk looks ready to ooze, the white seems set, but not overcooked.

 

I've never had good results in attempting to bake eggs.

 

Could you share your cooking method please?

 

It doesn't looked cooked in situ. The white would have seeped down into the supporting bed of spinach and bacon. I'd hazard a guess it must've been covered in the oven.

 

Please, do tell.

Nigel Slater inspired. A bun halved (both ways, the second half stashed for another day) and toasted, spread with garlic cream cheese and topped with sautéed mushrooms.

Thanks, Thanks.

 

It was definitely cooked in situ.  Uncovered, in the Cuisinart Steam Girl, at 325F steam-bake setting, for 8 minutes.

 

The spinach was blanched and shocked and the bacon was pre-cooked.

I don't usually eat anything sweet for breakfast....it gives me a headache for some reason.  But, this morning I couldn't resist waffles that my husband made.
