One of the best things I came across when I cleaned out all my recipe notebooks was this page from my Home Ec work in Grade 8, which was a long, long, LONG time ago, for Homemade Egg McMuffins.
I was absolutely blown away that I could make something as sophisticated (I didn't get out much, even back then) as a breakfast sandwich from a fast food restaurant!
I made them at home for my parents, who were as impressed as I was.
Or at least, that's how I remember it.
It was a thrill to having them turn out perfectly, and really get cooking.
And want to do it some more.
I can't wait for my kids to have that experience one day too.
