As part of The Week of Eating In, we're challenging the conventional wisdom that deems certain foods too hard to cook for the inexperienced. We understand that cooking may seem like a daunting task at times, but if you bear with us, we can show you that some things aren't as scary to cook as they look. Don't quit before you've even gotten started-- you can whisk polenta into submission, just like the pros.
Did you cook any wonderful meals during the Week of Eating In Challenge?
If you would like to share any photos of the meals you cooked during your Week of Eating In, click PARTICIPATE to tell us your story.
Check out our advice:
If you have a small pot with a lid, a few drops of vinegar, and five minutes of your time, you can poach an egg to perfection. Bring enough water to submerge a whole egg to a boil; add the vinegar and turn off the heat. Crack the egg into a small bowl, and gingerly slip it into the water. Cover, and wait for about 4 minutes. If the white looks completely opaque and not ghostly translucent in spots, remove it with a slotted spoon. Now you're only an English muffin and slice of ham away from a $12 eggs benedict brunch special!
