Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2015
Good recipe but use butter! Just a comment about butter versus margarine from a biochemist who worked in the health field for many years: use butter preferably. But first read this: Margarine: Depending on the kind it is, margarine may or may not be low in unsaturated fats; may contain artificial colors, artificial flavors, trans-fats and traces of heavy metals. Saturated fats are not as bad as you think ( recently health agencies agreed that we need cholesterol in our diets) ; margarine is artificially made usually by bubbling hydrogen through oils that are further refined by chemical methods. I predict a shift in saturated fat policies in the next 5 years. Butter: is natural food; it does contain higher saturated fats than many margarine, any trace of trans fats are also of natural origin and not the same as those in margarine; butter is minimally processed. I never cook with margarine and I do not use refined oils ( I know how they use chemical solvents and alkali for example in their production. See http://www.oilmillplant.com/vegetable-oil-processing.html ); I cook with olive oil and butter, coconut fat plus a few other oils such as walnut oil.

Egg Souffle

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
I have a slightly different version: 1. oil or butter generously the baking pan 2. do not need to cube the bread just simply place slices to the bottom of the baking dish. ( or butter slices of bread and put them butter side down) 3. spread the layer with cheese ( could be cheddar or any other you like) and a finely chopped onion ( i even tried it with parboiled broccoli and worked fine) ( no need for onion powder, fresh is better) 4. add salt and pepper to the egg and milk mixture 5. omit the cereal topping it just makes it kind of fake.... but add extra cheese on top just before baking ( if needed, in the morning push the bread under the egg-milk and add a bit of extra egg and milk if you think it seems dry) no need to cover if there is no cornflakes... I bake it at 350 for 4-50 minutes, but check as it seems to bake a bit fast, but if puffs up really beautifully !!!
