Morsels of Life - 5 Friday Finds

We finally got our first "vine ripe" cherry tomato! It feels like everyone else has had lots already, and we're just on our first. I'm not sure if it means we'll get a lot more later on or if we'll end up making a lot of Fried Green Tomatoes. :) Time will tell.

On another note, since I have a baby coming soon, Erin from Our Table for Seven has graciously volunteered to host Five Friday Finds for the month of September. Thanks Erin! If you're also interested in hosting, please let me know by leaving a comment or contacting me. :)

Morsels of Life - How to Poach an Egg

Poached Eggs - it's one of those recipes I've feared. It's always described as a temperamental and difficult recipe. How badly would my first attempt fail? Trying to avoid failure, I did some research. Turns out, making poached eggs isn't so difficult if you've got a few tricks up your sleeve. I like to crack the egg into a small bowl or container first. It allows for a more controlled egg drop. However, the most helpful hint is actually stirring the water before adding the egg. The moving water forces the egg into the center of the pot, making for a neater poached egg. Now you've mastered poached eggs, so go impress your friends with some Smoked Salmon Benedict!

How will you enjoy your poached eggs?
