      I'm so happy for you!!! Eggs are pure magic. There's a whole wide world of culinary delight out there for you to explore, and the unborn children of a delicious mother hen are the best place to enter said world. Cook well, remember your seasonings and enjoy the journey you're about to begin!

    what kind of black magic are you using to get the sunny side egg cooked all the way through? when I make them I have to cover them, add water to make steam, and STILL they're runny on top instead of white and cooked...

    • Rachel Blackburn
      Rachel Blackburn 14 days ago

      @IDoStuff non stick pans can give off fumes if overheated and those fumes can kill parakeets. So, I swapped my non stick with cast iron and stainless steel.

    tip - if you drizzle a little oil around the pan where the eggs fold over and cook, it will help get under to release it more easily.

    As a new chef in the kitchen
    The egg is one of my favorite things to cook
    It is easy to cook
    But you can make it as complex as you want
    My least favorite type of egg is an omelette
    While my favorite type of eggs is either a sunny side up with a liquid like yellow but a firm white (that sounds impossible but my grandma is a magician)
    Or an egg in which the white and the yellow have been mixed (not so much that it turns yellow) add some meat into the mix and cut some vegetables such as cucumber on the side and boom

    gourmet ass chef shit
    here's how you make an omelet if you ain't got the time or patience for that fancy stuff
    beat the fuck outta 2-4 eggs, throw in pan that's been liberally butter'd/oiled, let sit until the eggs are all cooked through, or almost, then throw some cheese in there, american's best, other fillings, your choice, fold that bitch, throw it on a plate, chow down.

    And for keeping things to one night if you still want to seem slightly nice that's why you keep some poptarts in the back of the cabinet... and you make these for yourself after they leave to either celebrate the night or to make up for the less than enjoyable time.

    Okay, i really need to say something. I'm spanish and i love your show but i cannot understand why you use butter for literally everything. I can't actually fathom it; maybe because here the normal thing is using olive oil for everything or something but who knows.
    Tbh i just dont get it cause it seems so fucking unhealthy to be eating a quarter of butter for everything you cook
