I don't know how successful I'm going to be,
but I am attempting to join the 365-Project,
taking and posting a photo every day of the year.
Of course if any of my travel goals come to fruition during this 2010, I may have some major lapses.
For New Year's Day, we had our traditional Christmas Brunch Eggs Benedict.
Hmmm, I wrote Christmas?
So why are we having it again on New Year's?
Simply because we can.
Eggs Benedict w/ Martinelli's Sparkling Cider
I've been making Eggs Benedict for as long as I can remember.
I don't even remember the first time I ate it.
My mom loved to attempt to prepare classics
and Hollandaise was one of her favorites.
I do recall lucking out for my
Food Science Final back in college.
I drew Hollandaise (an emulsion)...
it almost felt like cheating.
My roommate drew fudge and could not get it to come out right. Needless to say, I aced the final.
These days I prepare Hollandaise in the blender.
But I still can make it in a double boiler
(or 2 saucepans stacked in each other)
when requested away from a blender.
