You know that episode in Ranma 1/2 (or was it in the manga?) where Akane discovered her mother's recipe book after she blew up eggs while microwaving them? Or something? ....No? Anyway at the end of it, Akane takes the first step of actually learning how to cook by learning how to boil water.
HA. My first step in learning how to cook was how to cook eggs in various ways. Take THAT Akane, I'm so much more advanced. But really, eggs are such an everyday food item that I tend to forget how yummy they can be. Usually this revelation comes after reading WWII stories, The Secret Garden, Enid Blyton novels or Angela's Ashes.
Okay, so. The whole point of this post is rambling post is to say: I love eggs, except sunny side up. Why? The same reason why my brother hates spam (don't be shocked): Back when we were little, our mom would cook us the same breakfast for over a year. Every. Frigging. Day. Until we hated them with a passion. Mine was eggs sunny side up. My brother, spam. My older sister grew to hate Rebisco crackers because she always had them for recess. We bear no resentment towards our mom for this, I mean it's hard to get up early and cook breakfast for us litle brats. You aren't exactly creative when it's 4:30 in the morning. But we are getting rehabilitated now. I can even eat sunny side up every once in a while!
But I do love scrambled eggs. The great and bad thing about the internet is that everyone has tried everything. I wanted to try out the different methods of making fluffy scrambled eggs, and lo and behold: I Google "scrambled eggs" and someone's already done it. See?Perfect Scrambled Eggs by Mr. Breakfast.
(But 3 eggs per person seems quite criminal, I think.)
But that's okay. I just want to tell everyone that his recipe works. I will also not mention how I burned my butter because I got too excited. Anyway. You should try it! However, I realized that this recipe doesn't work with other breakfast food because of the milk and butter component. So pair it up with caution

Kinda feeling ripped off after reading this entry? That's ok. May bukas pa!
