I’m quite happy eggs are back in style because they really are the perfect food. They are inexpensive, full of protein, sustainable and are the key ingredient in many wonderful dishes. The Perfect Egg is a mouthwatering cookbook highlighting this humble food. Beautifully photographed, egg dishes are accompanied by easy-to-follow, unique recipes for Morning, Noon, Night, Snack and Sweet treats. The Perfect Egg also contains information about proper egg storage and sizing, as well as fun facts about eggs (who knew a super huge Emu egg = 14 large chicken eggs?).
I made two recipes so far from the book – Cranberry Cornmeal Cookies (uses 1 duck egg or 2 chicken eggs) which were delicious; crunchy from the cornmeal and sweet from the honey – and an easy recipe for Savory Strata which is basically a bread pudding made with Hawaiian sweet bread, 6 eggs, lots of veggies and cheese.
There are also many really interesting sounding recipes for foods I’ve never made/heard of before. Top of my list to make are Shrimp Okonomiyaki (3 eggs) which is a omelet-like pancake with shrimp, veggies and dried seaweed, Parmesan Popcorn Puffs (3 eggs) which are airy, cheesy gourgeres with a buttered popcorn puree filling (!) and Brick Toast which is made with a coating of sweetened condensed milk, eggs, sugar and butter spread onto thick bread slices and then baked. Yummy! – Carole Rosner

Police on the Big Island of Hawaii are looking for fruit bandits who made off with about $1,000 in exotic fruit, including 18 or so durian — the spiky fruit with a mega stinky smell and a taste some people crave.
This video shows the preparation of kkwabaegi (twisted donuts) at a small bakery in Korea. There are things both similar and different to the experiences of bakers here in the west (let alone large-scale production). It’s one of those “relaxing” or “satisfying” videos too, at least for the viewer, until one imagines doing it forty […]
I grew up in Virginia, and we used Old Bay Seasoning like folks around the country use salt and pepper. We really did put it on and in everything — definitely stuff like crab cakes, fried fish, chicken, steaks, and of course, boiled crab (“crab bawl!”).
Despite legalization in 11 states and decriminalization in 15 more, marijuana-based products are still an often tough sell with many Americans. While the psychoactive THC portion of the plant remains controversial, the medicinal impact of the non-altering component of cannibis, CBD, is widely hailed. Many portions of those claims still await medical verification, but for […]
If you remember your Norse mythology (or just watched Marvel’s Thor movies), you’re probably familiar with Heimdal, the god whose ever-watchful eye was entrusted with protecting the home of the gods in Asgard. Back on Earth, Heimdal Thor is also the name of a security package from Heimdal Security, that’s actually dedicated to much the […]
Everyone’s got their nose in a phone these days, and that doesn’t seem like it’s going to change anytime soon. With the increase in mobile device and e-commerce reliance comes increased need for developers who can build the apps we’re all so glued to. In fact, employment of devs is expected to grow up to […]
