As Seen On Food Renegade's: FIGHT BACK FRIDAYS, October 14th Edition
This all started because my mother refused to cook recipes that had yolks or whites left over. She considered it a waste. She wasn’t willing to search for recipes to pair together to use the leftover egg bits.
Jeff and I discussed this summer 2007 and “The Conservation of Eggs” was born. Soon thereafter we sought recipes which used one egg white or more then we started looking for recipes with one or more egg yolks.
The CoE Blog & Book Series:
This blog has recipes that contain one or more egg yolk, or egg white each, and a whole lot more!
The recipes posted here and in the book serve to help you with your leftover egg ‘halves.’ We will post two of each per month here on the CoE blog (some unique to the blog). If you want a whole bunch at once (and some that will be unique to the book), watch for the first book in the series: "Where's My Other Half? A Conservation of Eggs" coming to a Kindle, or Kindle app near you!
If you ever find yourself with one leftover egg white or egg yolk (or more) click on the number you have left in the upper right column of links on this site to find the quantity you need to use up and you’ll have a simple way to ‘Conserve YOUR Other Half’ when you might have wasted it in the past.
Some recipes keep the egg parts separated and they use them in different parts of the same recipe, though they are equal. We call these the “Noble Recipes" and they will be gathered together under that label here, and in the chapter of the same name in each of the books.
The first CoE book is set to publish by the end of Summer, 2011. We'll let you know when it's ready, and where to get it.
EDIT: The CoE Book "Where's My Other Half?" Was Released September 6th, 2011
Thanks for stopping by. We're looking forward to sharing what we've learned and hearing from you about the CoE too!
Jeff Miller, Pam Hoffman
p.s. We realized a couple of other things... There are some very simple things to do with those Halves, which you’ll find in the first chapter (titled “The Simplest Things”) of the first CoE book; or maybe some really bizarre things we learned as we worked on this book. The truly bizarre will be collected in a page on the 'official' Conservation of Eggs website.
We’d like to hear from you! We’re putting together more books in this series (one will BE Reader’s Choices) and we need your recipes, feedback and input. Write us or call anytime - our contact info is on the Contact Us Page of this blog!
