I can’t think of anything I like better for breakfast then Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise. I hate to admit it but I have used McCormick package Hollandaise sauce mix in the past. I will never use it again, now that I can make Blender Hollandaise. It is so easy and tastes so much better then any I’ve had before. You can use it on Eggs Benedict, or a topping for asparagus. You probably already have all the ingredients in your refrigerator and pantry. I don’t know about you but I have the hardest time with poached eggs. They really intimidate me. I either undercook them or overcook them, as I did in this case, you can check out the photo below. I like the yellow just oozing out with a slightly firm egg white. I obviously overcooked these little gems. It was still a wonderful breakfast. I used my Artisan Bread recipe that is on my site, and cut it in half an toasted them, I then topped them with butter. Our friend Steve Heins makes homemade bacon that is out of this world, so I topped the bread with homemade bacon. If your not lucky enough to buy homemade bacon or have a friend that makes it, you can use store bought. I then poached the eggs, or in my case over poached them, and then topped with the delicious Hollandaise. You do need a blender to make this though.
I wanted to update everyone with my progress on my claustrophobia issues, that I have written about in my past blogs, from an abusive marriage in my past. I have been going to therapy for anxiety and other issues, and I’m here to say it really is helping me cope. If any of you are dealing with anxiety or other trauma from your past, I would highly recommend EMDR. If your don’t know what it is you can google it. It has been around for a few years and has helped numerous war vets with Post traumatic stress disorder. I can attest that it worked for me, and is still helping me. When I went to NYC to visit the boys, I actually rode up and down in an elevator for the first time with no anxiety in years! If you have had anxiety, you know how debilitating it can be. If you are a Golf follower, and you watched Charlie Beljan struggle through an anxiety attack that led him away in a ambulance a few months back, then you know it is a real feeling, that can’t be ignored. I only write about this, in hopes of helping someone else with these horrible issues. I will continue to keep you updated with my progress, but for now, I will continue to ride elevators! Let me know if any of you have struggled now or in the past with anxiety or claustrophobia? Also let me know if you have any tips on how to poach the perfect egg? Love, Stacey
