  1. Savory delight! Thanks for correcting the temperature per prior reviews. My ham was not cut very thin, in fact, I tore off pieces to form the cup, and then allowed extra cooking time until the yolks set to my personal preference. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game.
  2. This turned out GREAT!! They were done in the time specified, and we all enjoyed them. I did have to sub in grated cheddar for the grated parmesan, as that was all I had on hand. Simple yet impressive breakfast. Thanks for posting! Made for the ZWT 3 :)
  3. Perfect Pixie, nice little recipe you have shared here. Thank you, but I think you may have forgotten to add centigrade (C.) to your oven temperature as the two Zaar members who added their review noted they needed to raise their oven temperature. Recipe #94624 is similar to yours where instructions are to preheat the oven to 180C (350F). I'm looking forward to trying your recipe the next time my grandchildren spend the weekend with me.
  4. The eggs were really runny...I even turned up temperature and kept them in for several minutes. The recipe didn't really say how they were suppose to be when finished.
  5. i thought these were amazing. they were very easy to make. i had to turn up the heat a little bit bit, but other then that. My family and I really enjoyed them


I lived in new zealand for 8 years of my life, now england for the past 8 years. I go to boarding school on the east coast of england. I have friends from all over the world, my best friend is canadian and also lived in france, so her mum and her for that fact, are mean chefs, boy do i like going to her house. I recently found out I am intollerant to wheat so have found it difficult to give up such easy foods to find and now have to search harder. I also have 2 leaks in my heart, one on a valve going in and one on a valve going out. A top carteoligist from London told me as long as I don't get pregnant for a while (I should hope not, I'm only 15) or eat fatty foods, my heart would do allright. He said he didn't want to operate on me yet, beacause there is a operation coming in the next 10 years which is lazer, so he wants me to wait, but he said I was fit and healthy and had no need to worry, yet....... when i was younger i dreamed of being a choreographer or a marine biolagist, then i wanted to work for vouge magazine, then get married and move to barbados and raise a family where the only thing that passes anyones lips will be home grown or hand made, a bit ambitious i know, hehe. But now my dream is to be a laywer and help others that really need it, and hopefully move back to my roots and bring up a family there For lent i have given up refined sugars and it is so hard and i am only 3 days into it, i was starving at school, opened my tuk box only to find marshmallows and smarties and a box of cereal, i think cereal is about to become my best friend over the next 6 weeks. LOL EDITED 30TH AUGUST; Last night at 3:30am, my best friend lost her battle to cancer and it has made me realise how important it is to live life to the full and take every opportunity thrown at us. She was a special girl and only 15 - wherever she is now though, she is out of her suffering. I have no doubt that she went straight to heaven. Lord rest your soul. i also have a lot of favourite sayings, here are some of them "shoot for the moon, even if you don't make it, you'll land amoung the stars" "I'm on a seafood diet, see food and eat it" "smiling is infectious, you catch it like the flu, when someone smiled at me today, i started smiling too, i passed around the corner and someone saw me grin, when he smiled i realised, i'd passed it on to him. I thought about that smile, then i realised it's worth, a single smile just like mine could pass around the earth. So if you feel a smile begin, don't leave undetected. Lets start an epedemic quick, and get the world infected!!!"
