Quick and Easy Eggs Benedict

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2014
When I followed the instructions as written, my poached eggs were a disaster, falling apart on the slotted spoon after sticking to the bottom of the saucepan. My husband said I had too much water in the saucepan, and too little vinegar for the amount of water. He recommended that I use a non-stick frying pan (12 in), with about an inch of water and the tsp of vinegar. Done that way, my eggs came out perfectly after 3/4 minutes. The sauce rated an "OK" from him, but there was still entirely too much of it for 4 servings, even though I reduced the amount of butter to 1/2 cup and the egg yolks to 2. Next time I give Eggs B. a try, I will look for another recipe.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2014
These pancakes turned out fluffy, exactly as promised! I was especially surprised as I only realised I had no eggs at the last minute and had to substitute plain yogurt (1/4 cup) for the egg. This one is a keeper!

Three Egg Omelet

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2013
My husband said I really raised the bar with this recipe. I didn't have any ham or turkey, so with just cheese, tomato, bell peppers and green onions, I still found this recipe easy-to-use and had excellent results!

Scrambled Egg Brunch Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2013
This recipe only looks complicated, I found it very easy to do once I had got everything together. I would only add that if you are reducing the servings (I did from 6 to 3), that you not reduce the amount of butter needed for the skillet, and that you reduce the cooking time to 18-20 minutes depending on your oven, my bread was golden and ready around the 19 minute mark.

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
This recipe works like a charm every time I try it. My husband was very skeptical I could make these from scratch, especially as we don't have a crepe pan (and I'm not the world's greatest cook). However, this recipe has never failed me, and I got the best compliment ever when I made them for a French friend and she asked for seconds! Quick technical note, instead of a regular frying pan, I use a non-stick pan with no oil. With the heat somewhere between low and medium (3.5 on our stove), the non-stick pan works perfectly for cooking the crepes.

Chocolate Hazelnut Fruit Crepes

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
These were awesome. I reduced the Nutella to about 2 tablespoons per crepe because my husband does not like sweets and I was making breakfast for us. He had nothing but praise for my efforts, thanks!

Baked Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2013
Awesome, simple recipe. Couldn't be bothered separating the eggs, made no difference to the taste.
