Or try these other methods:

๐Ÿฅš PERFECT SOFT BOILED EGGS
In small saucepan, bring enough water to completely cover the eggs to a rolling boil. Reduce temperature to med and when the water is at a low simmer, gently add eggs. Avoid dropping them in the pot as they may crack.

Cook chicken eggs for 5 min (or duck eggs for 6 min) uncovered. I like to stir them every few minutes to prevent the yolk cooking more on one side.

If you prefer hard boiled (but not chalky super done yolks), increase time to 9min for chicken eggs and 11min for duck eggs.

Once cooked, drain out the boiling water and fill the pot with cold water. I personally don’t do an ice bath because I don’t want my eggs cold to eat.

Crack the eggs gently all the way around and put in the pot of cold water to allow water to get under the membrane. Leave eggs for 3-5 min, peel gently under running water and enjoy.

I cooked the chicken on the stove when I should have trusted my instincts and cooked it in the air fryer. I wasn’t thinking about the fact that the yogurt would break while the chicken was cooking and so I ended up with a broken sauce. Still edible but not as nice…

๐Ÿงˆ I love this butter and have it on anything. I have always counted the calories for it but hadn’t looked at points for it in years.

So it turns out:
Up to ยพtsp is 0 (too fiddly to mess with unless you really really just want a smidge)
Then up to 2ยฝ tsp is 1
Then up to 1โ…“ tbsp is 2

I had the ยพtsp serving today with my peas to see if I wanted to use that amount and no, I’d rather just use my points for it ๐Ÿ˜Š but now I know…

I tried my potato in the air fryer but got distracted and forgot to oil and salt it… ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

If you add these, you may have to add a little extra yogurt, milk or water…

NO STICKY HANDS PREPARATION
Combine all ingredients in a bowl with a fork or small spatula. Lightly spray your baking sheet or lay down some parchment paper and turn your dough out onto the tray.

I worked on base coloring some figures for a privately commissioned paint job! Exciting! He is buying a set I started painting and had asked me to finish the rest of the set.

I started it 2yrs ago and tonight I started getting the base colors down on the unfinished models. I was very happy to be able to get so close to the original colors used given that they were a custom mix back then and I was using different Paints now.
[Details in video]

These are pieces of a board game I am painting like their card art

If you add these, you may have to add a little extra yogurt, milk or water…

Season as YOU like ๐Ÿ˜…

NO STICKY HANDS PREPARATION
Combine all ingredients in a bowl with a fork or small spatula. Lightly spray your baking sheet or lay down some parchment paper and turn your dough out onto the tray. Using the fork/spatula, shape the dough to the thickness and diameter you want. Top with an egg wash and additional seasoning if you’d like. Bake and enjoy!

๐Ÿฒ BEEF BIRRIA DE RES
๐Ÿ†• NEW RECIPE ๐Ÿ†• #experimentsineating
I have been wanting to try my hand at making this for awhile and finally got all my ducks in a row to do it. There are tons of different recipes depending on how you want to cook it and what region the recipe is from. I used a combination of these. I am not making the tacos – I just wanted it as a stew.

YOUTUBE VIDEOS

Techniques vary widely as well. Some recipes say to toast the chilis and aromatics, some boil or presoak the chilis, some sear the meat first, some use stock, some use water and powdered bouillon, some put everything in the pot together, some make the sauce first… There are a lot of variations!

As I have never done this recipe before – look at the traditional recipes above and decide for yourself what you want to do.

RECOMMENDED TIPS I SAW & USED
* Take your meat out at least an hour before cooking, season it and allow it to come to room temperature.
* If you are sensitive to chilis or their seeds, be sure and wear gloves when deseeding.
* Depending on your blender, you may need to strain the chili sauce to remove the small pieces of skin left over from the chilies.
* if you are blending the liquid hot, be sure to either use a blender that has an opening at the top to allow pressure and steam to escape or if like me you don’t have one of those you will need to let the liquid cool before blending. [ Full explanations in the recipes ]

Because I don’t have a super powerful blender – I decided to cook everything together and blend afterwards.

There is a lot of information here so I have compiled everything in a walk through on tonight’s video.

๐Ÿ’ฎ QUICK PICKLED RED ONIONS
In the first recipe, I was reminded of pickled onions which I normally keep on hand but didn’t have so I started by doing a quick pickled red onion which I knew would be ready by lunch time. Here are a few recipes to try if you aren’t familiar with making them.

———————

After all the research, all the prep, all the work – I didn’t like it. It was edible and I have no idea what in the flavor profile I didn’t like, but I just didn’t.

Meat was tender…
It was not spicy…
It was just not at all like what I had before and I have to say I’m very disappointed and somewhat grumpy actually! ๐Ÿ˜ก

I don’t want anything else so I’m calling it a night…

๐ŸŒ€ INSTANT POT WHOLE SQUASH
Cooked in @mychefiq Smart Pressure Cooker

1c water in inner pot + trivet
Puncture squash all around
High Pressure + Natural Release
(I like it to still be firm so I use the lesser times)
>1lb = 4-5min
1lb = 8-10min
2lb = 15-20min
3lb = 22-25min
4lb = 28-32min

It will be ๐Ÿ”ฅ SUPER HOT ๐Ÿ”ฅ when it comes out… Use a towel or mitts and cut open to cool. Once cool enough to handle, scoop out the seeds with a spoon and enjoy.

* Delicata, Honeynut, Red Kuri and Sweet Dumpling Squash can be enjoyed skin on.

* Small / young Butternut or Kabocha Squash skin can be eaten but may be tougher.

* Large Squash especially including thick skin varieties like Acorn and Spaghetti Squash are not intended to eat the skins.
