Recipe: Hard Boiled Eggs

Hard Boiled Eggs

I love hard boiled eggs. Unfortunately, I only think to make them around Easter. They really don’t take long and taste oh so good. Whip up a batch and I just might do the same throughout the year instead of only for this holiday.

Ingredients:

Eggs
Water

Instructions:

Place eggs in a pot covered with cool water that’s about 2″ deeper than the eggs. Bring water to a rapid boil. Set the timer for 12 minutes and remove the pot from heat. Once the timer has gone off, carefully remove the eggs from the hot water and place them in a cold water bath. Once they are fully cooled, refrigerate until you are ready to peel and eat them.

3 c Chicken Stock
1 c Water
1 – 14 oz. Can Corn, drained

2 Tbs Dried Minced Onion
2 Tbs Butter
1 tsp Ground Ginger
3 Eggs
1/4 c Peas

Instructions:

In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and 3 Tbs water together and set aside. In a large pot, combine everything except the eggs, peas, and cornstarch mix. Bring to a rapid boil. Beat the eggs together in a small bowl. Then transfer then to a pourable container. Stir the soup rapidly to create a whirlpool and slowly drizzle the eggs into the boiling soup, very slowly. Once the eggs have “flowered” in the soup, add in the peas and cornstarch mix and stir. Once the peas have cooked to your liking, dish up and enjoy!

Recipe: French Pancakes (Crepes)

Crepes

French Pancakes (Crepes)

Many years ago while I was in high school, we hosted a french exchange student. She made us this delicious breakfast that could moonlight as a dessert. It was Crepes! These very thin “pancakes” are surprisingly easy to make. Filled with fresh fruits, you can’t go wrong! Cook up a batch for breakfast and let me know how you like them!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 c Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
2 tsp Baking Powder
2 Tbs Demerara Sugar
4 Eggs
1 1/3 c Milk
2/3 c Water
1 tsp Vanilla

Fillings:
Butter
Sour Cream
Fruit (sliced banana, diced apple, blackberries, jam…)

Instructions:

Mix all your dry ingredients in a large bowl (flour, salt, baking powder, sugar). Mix all your wet ingredients in a medium bowl (eggs, milk, water, vanilla). Pour your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients and lightly mix. It’s ok if there are lumps. Ladle crepe mix onto a hot griddle making a large, thin pancake circle. When the edges look like they are completely set and starting to dry, flip them gently with a large spatula. You want a nice light golden brown color on the crepes. Cooking time will very, but for my griddle, it’s around 3 minutes per side. Fill the crepes with your desired fillings and gently roll up. Sprinkle a little sugar on top of the crepe and you’re done!
