How to Cook The Best Scrambled Eggs

 
 
Cooking scrambled eggs seems like a really easy task that everyone should know how to do. Right? Wrong. Scrambled eggs may be an easy task, but making GOOD scrambled eggs takes skill. Lots of breakfast restaurants and fast food chains don't make good scrambled eggs because they either use powdered egg mix *gag* or they use a quick-and-easy method for getting eggs cooked (a.k.a quantity over quality, which usually makes them taste bland or have a weird texture).
 
The scrambled eggs I make require a little extra time, patience, and a strategy. The key to getting scrambled eggs that have a good mixture of egg whites, hardened egg yolk, and your typical scrambled egg look is to cook them slowly. The texture makes a huge difference, whether you eat them plain or in a breakfast taco.
 
From drab to fab, I say!
 
Tip: If you want added flavor, add 1 tsp of homemade bacon grease to your non-stick pan for every 2 eggs. (Bacon grease is the leftover grease from cooking bacon in a frying pan. It thickens in room temperature and looks like tan Crisco).
 
Follow the steps and pictures below to learn how to cook the best scrambled eggs:

 
 
 
1. Crack your eggs in a non-stick frying pan and set the heat on low (Medium-Low if you're in a rush).

 
2. Let the egg whites start to cook / solidify.

 
3. Break up the egg whites and flip over the egg yolk without breaking it, so it can cook more on the other side.

 
4. In 30 seconds to 1 minute, start to break the egg yolk and let it "bleed" across the pan,. Let it cook for several seconds.

 
5. Slowly start to mix together the egg whites and yolk by flipping or folding them into each other with your spatula.

 
6. Remove from heat.

 
7. Season with salt and pepper.

 
8. Optional: Add to a warm tortilla with melted cheese for a breakfast taco. Add bacon or other ingredients if preferred.

 
9. Hope you enjoy your scrambled eggs!
 
 
 
Cooking eggs is an art that actually comes with the principle "practice makes perfect." The more you cook eggs similar to this method, the more you will learn what works for your pans, stovetop, texture preferences, seasoning choices, etc. until you get the best scrambled eggs according to YOUR liking!

DIY Car Kit Ideas: List of Items

A DIY car kit is not the same thing as an emergency kit - they serve different purposes.

A true emergency kit should go in the back of the trunk, including items such as band-aids, Neosporin, and other trauma or survival aids. DIY car kits have non-emergency items ---but used for your own personal "emergencies," such as spilling ketchup on your shirt or a sudden headache when driving on the road.

**A DIY car kit should be in a small to medium sized container, with a zipping or buckling component to ensure the items stay inside. It can be a flimsy material bag, or a sturdy plastic container. But make sure it is small enough that it will not take up a lot of space in your back seat. The ideal size would be able to fit underneath the seat or on the floorboard.

See the items below to configure your own Car Kit according to what YOU think you'll need "in case of emergency."

6-Month DIY Wedding: The Timeline Checklist

First of all, what do I mean by a "DIY Wedding?"

A wedding that is at least 75% of planning and services done by YOU. This means NO fancy venues, expensive wedding cakes, unnecessary rentals, catering, and more.

If this isn't you, then you will not find this DIY Wedding Checklist helpful...at all.
If this is you, then read on and enjoy!

On the side note....

Which one are you?:

Just got engaged (but having a short engagement -- 4 to 6 months)? No worries. You'd be surprised how many people pull of an entire DIY wedding in less than 4 or 5 months, so if they can, so can you. Just follow the Wedding Checklist and Timeline below:


Not yet "officially" engaged (but know you are about to be)? I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you to plan ahead, especially if you are planning the wedding all by yourself. No, you absolutely don't need to buy anything yet (and shouldn't) but you must plan ahead and know exactly what you want to do. That way, once the engagement finally comes, yo…
