Welcome to our blog! We wanted a place to share reviews of Mark Bittman recipes from "How to Cook Everything" and "How to Cook Everything Vegetarian" cookbooks. This blog's purpose is not to re-post recipes, but instead we will leave feedback for HTCE and HTCEV users on recipes we have tried, what we have loved and what we haven't loved.
Quote from Intro:
"Anyone can cook, and most everyone should. It's a sorry sign that many people consider cooking 'from scratch' an unusual and even rare talent. In fact, it is a simple and rewarding craft, one that anyone can learn and even succeed at from the get-go." -Bittman, HTCE

Simplest Omelet (Denver Variation)
I wish I could eat this all over again! Unlike Mark's suggestion I just cooked the onions, bell peppers and ham in the same skillet I was going to cook the omelet in. I also was doubling the recipe and added 3/4 cup ham for two omelets. With the Denver Omelet fixins and a handful of cheddar it was plenty of filling!! I also add all of my filling on one side and then flip the other half of the omelet over the filling. Like so:
This recipe lists the servings number as 2, and maybe for breakfast with 5 eggs you could split just one omelet, but in our case I used 4 eggs per person and for dinner we both were able to eat the entire thing.
