how to make perfect eggs & not settle for less in life pt 1

DSCN8433

This blogging stuff requires a lot of multi-tasking. You get used to it after a while. Developing new skills every day.

This morning was consumed with taking enough good, perfect pictures of scrambled eggs.

With one hand. And my left hand, mind you. And with my arm bent crooked, my body hunched over the stove awkwardly, I took a good 50 photos *just* on the art of scrambling eggs.

I think my parents think I’m crazy at times. Ah, but they love me 🙂

They’ve supported all my crazy endeavors growing up. All my weird dreams. Even though they were next to impossible,  they are always behind me, cheering me on.

Give them a round of applause, yes?

And, might I add, my dad was the one who taught me how to fix the perfect egg.

But, anyhoo, I’ll stop chatting and give you the recipe.

Have you ever gone to one of those family-style restaurants, and order some scrambled eggs, but they taste like rubber? Ick. That’s not how you cook eggs.

You see, this recipe is for nice, fluffy eggs … the way they should be. 🙂

ingredients — {feeds one hungry girl like me :)}

–> 4 eggs

–> few tbsps of milk (opt.)

–> salt & pepper

–> dried parsley flakes

–> shredded cheese, for sprinkling

That’s it! But make sure not don’t under-cook them. I’ve heard that E Coli and Salmonella aren’t too fun.

But, on the other hand, don’t overcook them. If you turn up the heat any higher than I have it, that’s how you get those rubbery eggs. If you cook them a little slower, they won’t do that. 🙂

here i am, everyone: ventures in gardening

I was the girl who couldn’t plant anything to save her life.

There are so many things I’ve learned about having a garden. You know, like, actually going out and watering them every day, not every month or so, like I used to do. (I know, pretty sad.)

But this black-thumbed girl might be slowly turning green thumbed 🙂

Oh! And by the way, is it bad to have favoritism about your plants? Because I think I’ve developed that.

But, anyways, my babies are all gwown up!! I can’t believe it!

I promise there is a person behind this blog, haha :). I know I haven’t posted very many pictures of myself on here over the past 2 years, but I do exist. I’m not just some creepster ghost that roams about in the blogging world 😉

So, what do you guys think I should plant next? So far, I’ve got basil, thyme, peppermint, sage, rosemary, oregano, parsley, two kinds of tomatoes, cucumber, onion, and bell peppers. 😀

here’s to you, kids

I am the luckiest girl alive.

I just want to thank you all for your amazing love & support, sweet words and encouragement. I seriously can’t thank you guys enough.

I was 15 years old when I typed up my first blog post over in Blogger. Man — how the time flies!

My blog has come so far over the past two years.

I love you guys! And God bless!

So I’m just gonna say …

here’s to you, kids!
