Ham, Cheese, and Steamed Egg Croissant

Having breakfast today at Atlas Cafe because I am too lazy to make it myself. Luckily, they make the most delicious breakfast croisant sandwich. They steam their eggs, which is kind of like scrambled, but they are super fluffy. White cheddar cheese and black forest ham on a super flaky buttery croisant. Add some tapatio (hot sauce), salt, and pepper,and it is an unstoppable combo. I'd make this myself, but the recipe I found for croisants in the Tartine Cookbook is 5 pages long and takes at least two days.

Cooking and Social Media

I am just now beginning to immerse myself into the online wealth of information and community there is surrounding cooking. I have always seen and heard about these tools before, but have never quite gotten how to use them, or how they would apply to me. On the other side, I have always tried to search around on Google for information about cooking, and have always ended up at the same few places: About.com cooking, Epicurious, FoodNetwork.com, etc.

The Talisman Italian Cookbook

My brother just lent me "The Talisman Italian Cookbook" by Ana Boni, and it is great. Â Described in the front cover as "It is to Italians what Joy of Cooking is to Americans", it seems like a pretty critical book for me (Joy of Cooking is my favorite book). The book is broken up into sections, Antipasto, Soups, Eggs, etc., but there is no discussion or storytelling; it is pure recipes. Â The first recipe in there looks good, so I'm already into it. I already have everything I need, other than the artichokes.
