The Cooking In Sanity Project: Variation Scrambled Eggs with Cheese, Oeufs Brouilles au Fromage

Hey everyone!
Today on the Cooking in Sanity project I did a quick variation on scrambled eggs by making them with cheese.  As I’ve said before, I am pretty picky about my scrambled eggs and tend to stay away from extra ingredients like cheese or lots of seasoning, although I have been known to eat scrambled eggs with ketchup, something I now realize is pretty nasty!  I was interested to try this recipe out and see how I liked Julia’s scrambled eggs with cheese in comparison to other recipes I’ve tried.



Julia’s scrambled eggs with cheese were probably some of the best I’ve ever had.  Although I still prefer scrambled eggs on their own, I was pleasantly surprised that I liked them with cheese added.

Thanks for watching and I’ll see you next time!

The Cooking In Sanity Project: Scrambled Eggs, Oeufs Brouilles

Hi everyone!

Today on the Cooking in Sanity project I made a classic: scrambled eggs! Now I don’t mean to brag but my dad makes some of the best scrambled eggs I’ve ever had (he is the master of breakfast). I was really interested to see how Julia’s method for making scrambled eggs matched up against my dad’s.

One of the pretty cool things about scrambled eggs, or really any classic recipes, is that there are so many different ways to make them. It seems like everyone who cooks will have a different method, and that’s pretty dang cool! Julia’s method ended up making some pretty good, standard scrambled eggs.


I am pretty picky about my scrambled eggs so I was pleasantly surprised. I’d even venture to say they were just as good as my dad’s (better watch out dad, there’s a new breakfast master in town)!

The Cooking In Sanity Project: Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Puree de Pommes de Terra a l'Ail

Hey everyone!

Today on the Cooking in Sanity project I decided to make garlic mashed potatoes.  I don’t know about you, but I am a big fan of mashed potatoes.  However, I am pretty picky about my potatoes!  I like my mashed potatoes to be slightly chunky and not super buttery.  I was definitely interested to see how Julia’s garlic mashed potatoes would turn out.


The garlic mashed potatoes ended up being super tasty!  I love the fact that the potatoes still had the skins on them – I think it added a great texture to the mashed potatoes.  The garlic was subtle but added a delicious hint of flavor.  I loved pairing these potatoes with Julia’s braised shoulder of lamb with beans recipe (definitely check out that video too) for a delicious and hearty meal.

The Cooking In Sanity Project: Braised Shoulder of Lamb with Beans, Gigot ou Epaule de Pre-Sale Braise aux Haricots

Hi everyone!

Today on the Cooking in Sanity project I cooked up some braised shoulder of lamb with beans.  I think lamb is one of the most underrated meats, and it’s one of my favorites.  Some people don’t like it because of its distinct, game-y taste, but I personally enjoy it, so I was super excited to make this dish!


This dish turned out to be absolutely amazing!  The lamb was tender and had a delicious flavor and the beans really complimented the texture and flavors of the meat.  This is a great dish to make during the winter because it’s filling and flavorful. 

Thanks for watching and I’ll see you next time!

The Cooking In Sanity Project: Scrambled Omelette, l'Omelette Brouillee


Hi everyone!

Today on the Cooking in Sanity project I made a scrambled omelet.  I must admit, I am not the best omelet-maker and am generally too scared to make omelets.  However, Julia’s method did seem pretty straight-forward so I decided to put my fears aside and give it a go.

 
I definitely think with some practice I can become a decent omelet-maker.  Julia’s method was easy
to follow and I will definitely use it next time I make some omelets.

The Cooking In Sanity Project: Variation of Eggs Baked in Ramekins


Hey everybody!
Today on the Cooking in Sanity project I did a quick variation on eggs baked in ramekins by adding some herbs.  Here’s how I did it:
 
I think adding the herbs to the eggs gave them a great flavor, and they ended up being pretty darn tasty.  Thanks for watching, see you next time!

The Cooking In Sanity Project: Eggs Baked in Ramekins, Oeufs en Cocottes


Hey everyone!
Today on the Cooking in Sanity project I made eggs baked in ramekins.  For those of you who don’t know, a ramekin is basically a mini dish (similar to something like a mini casserole dish) that can be used to bake single-serving foods, whether it’s something like mac and cheese or a cookie.  Or, in this case, eggs!

 
This method did take a little while as it involved baking with an actual oven so I don’t think I’d make it on a regular basis, but I do think the eggs turned out tasting pretty good.  I think I’ll stick with scrambled eggs for now!
