Nothing to see here, move along.
But I found two things that I wanted to try out. Gordon Ramsey's way of cooking scrambled eggs, and 3 minute brownies made from scratch. Don't worry Lizzy, I made proper brownies too, my experience with those will go in another post.
I was always taught to make scrambled eggs by first, whisking eggs together in a small bowl, pouring the mixture into a frying pan, folding the mixture and viola, dry and crumbly eggs. So then I decided to follow this video.
I'm just going to say this now, I love Ramsey.
He cooks it in a pot, breaks the eggs in said pot and the eggs look moist. Completely different from how I've been taught to make scrambled eggs. My turn, I don't go all fancy with the mascarpone cheese, chives or smoked salmon. My eggs look like this:
Ok, certainly not as visually appealing as Ramsey's (I suck at plating) but my eggs were nice and moist this time. Maybe too moist? Next time I think I'll cook them for a bit longer. I didn't get food poisoning so that's always a plus.
Ok, that's one success, let's be adventurous and try this next:
I've seen this and variations all over the place. I've heard inconsistent reports of decent brownies and goopy monstrosities. It's my turn to try it out. and here's what I got:
Yeah... It kind of deflated but tastewise it was a bit bland. My suggestion to anyone else wanting to try the above recipe to throw in things like chocolate chips to make it taste better. Other than that, it was easy, extremely moist and it actually worked. Keep in mind that not all microwaves are the same.
I'm actually kind of proud of myself. Maybe there is some hope for me in the kitchen after all.
