When you’re in hurry or forget to plan ahead and the recipe calls for room temperature eggs use this great tip from Faux Martha :

“Whenever a recipe calls for ‘room temperature’ eggs, you don’t have to plan hours in advance. You can place your eggs in a bowl of lukewarm water for about five minutes to do the trick. It’s especially helpful for whipping eggs for desserts.”  — Kasey, Turntable Kitchen

Another trick that I use when I forget and the recipe calls for room temperature butter: Cut up the butter in little blocks and microwave at 10 sec intervals. Make sure it’s not melted and has just softened. Happy baking!


caramelized braised pork and eggs

This delicious little treat from Ravenous Couple can be made with pork shin/legs instead of the more fatty pork belly if you’re looking for a leaner alternative. The sweetness from the coconut gently flavors the pork and the eggs. Eat with a side of rice and veggies for a complete meal!
