  1. The Crispy Baked Pork Chops recipe look really good. I will have to put this into my meal plan for this month. I am also looking forward to the chicken puffs recipe.

  2. Everything on your menu sounds so tasty!
    I MUST pick your brain – how do you soft boil your eggs? I try constantly with zero success and have concluded that I’m the queen of hard boiling that which is not meant to be hard boiled. The soft boiled stage forever eludes me!

    1. Hi Corrie, thanks so much for stopping by! The pressure! :) I put the eggs in a saucepan and cover them with cold water. I bring them to a boil and then take them off the heat, cover, and let sit for about 2 minutes. Then stick in the egg cup and eat up (with a little s&p for me)! There might be a better way (I’m guessing there IS a better way), but this is the only way I do it. Hope that helps! I love hardboiled eggs, too. Sometimes I forget them on the stove and end up with hardboiled. Ah well…chomp chomp chomp anyhow:)

I love your comments and read them all.
