I have never made Hollandaise sauce before, but the other night Ollie and I were talking about eggs Benedict, so i decided to try to make some considering we were having a lazy Saturday free from sailing, which almost never happens. I googled a few recipes and found Julia Child's blender version then though screw this i should really try to make the proper one the first time. I googled it and ended finding Michael Ruhlman's recipe for Classic Hollandaise sauce, and decided to give it a try as i am currently reading his book "The Making Of A Chef". I made a shopping list and Ollie went to the grocery store for me :), and then made a second trip for me... oops i didn't realize i needed soooo much butter...... It's lucky there is a grocery store downstairs!

|tortilla with all ingredients before cooking|
Sorry its been ages since my last post... I have been extremely busy and haven't been actually cooking much.... Why have i been so busy you ask, well working simultaneously for around 6 companies while studying is not particularly easy. On the plus I have completed my course in AdvCert in Nutrition and AdvDip in Child & Adolescent Nutrition, and currently trying to decide what to do next. I either planning on doing a program on Advanced Holistic Nutrition or some personal training courses or maybe both. We will see, hopefully i can make up my mind soon.

A few days ago I took part in a fund rasing event for Sailabily, which provide sailing instruction for persons with a disability, who wish to learn to sail. There was a sausage sizzle and garage sale, one of the items at the sale was a Le Creuset frying pan that had only been used once before...score
