Ken's Perfect Hard Boiled Egg (And I Mean Perfect)
Ken, with 40+ yrs of cooking and many first time failed attempts, this 'first' a-b-s-o-l-u-t-e-l-y worked for me . I halved the amount for 4 eggs, allowed them to come to room temp. Had one egg(slightly) crack, though did not result with egg whites floating about. Timed them at 15 minutes, shells easily came off, cooked through and no ring bling. The next time I can't sleep, kitchen and fame, here I come. lol Thx!

Traditional Pork Posole
I used this recipe and combined the efforts of similar recipes to extract the steps I wanted to try. Made red chili sauce with a variety of dried peppers. Baked the pork roast using the cook's note and applied a garlic paste to cover the pork roast. While simmering, slipped in some thin sliced carrots that added even more flavor. My first attempt was a success thanks to all the great recipes and suggestions. Traditional condiments are a plus with this dish, fresh is best. I even made the pickled red onions, so glad I did.

Migas II
I always fry the corn tortilla pieces crispier, sprinkled with dry spices like chile(cayenne or chipotle), garlic, and cumin. Push the pieces to one side of the pan and then add the beaten eggs to the open side, cook til almost done and then mix together with torks. Love adding any leftover meats including chicken, taco meat, or chorizo. Diced fresh onion, cilantro, tomato, jalapeno tossed on finished dish adds more flavor and crunch. Also try fresh veggies like corn off the cob or zucchini to 'stir-fry' right in wonderfully. Have some just waiting for my skillet...
