I'm trying to veganize a family recipe for nian gao, or Chinese-American glutinous rice cake. Ener-G Egg Replacer, which is supposed to "just work," hasn't on my first two attempts. What am I doing wrong? [more inside]
Where can I buy the most ethically-raised (within the bounds of still eating animal-products of course), organic-fed, smaller-scale source of eggs in NYC? I feel like the places I would normally expect to find them, just put out the same few large-scale brands. [more inside]
I've tried making custard buns both these and these and can't get the custard to come out properly. It doesn't come together smoothly, clumps and then over thickens. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but I was hoping for some help! [more inside]

When I was in Monterey I had a tex-mex migas like I'd never seen and I've always wanted to recreate it at home. it was the traditional tex-mex migas ingredients (tomato, bell pepper, onion, egg, cheese, tortilla chips) but it came out standing whole and firm, not unlike a flan and it cut like one - moist but really sturdy, not falling apart, almost like a quiche? The non-egg stuff was diced superfine and just melted into it. How did they make this and how can I do it at home? [more inside]
I'm trying to recall a cooking method. I saw it mentioned on, I believe, Top Chef within the past few seasons. I'm pretty sure it was Jacques Pepin, and he mentioned that his daily breakfast was a soft-boiled egg he prepared in a mug, possibly in a microwave. It basically seemed like a hack of his eggs en cocotte recipe. [more inside]
I'm a dummy and left 2 dozen raw eggs in the carton overnight in my car; I forgot to bring them in after grocery shopping. They've been unrefrigerated for about 24 hours, and my car's been in various garages the whole time, probably 15-20 C. The carton says to keep refrigerated, but do they really mean it? [more inside]
My cousin use to own a t-shirt from "Green Eggs and Hamlet". I have been trying to find the t-shirt online but sadly with no luck. The t-shirt is the one mentioned in this post but even though I know it may exist in Stratford Ontario I am no closer to finding. I picked the person who made the post but still waiting on a response. Thought I would try here to see if people have any ideas. Thanks!
My neighbors have a lot of chickens, and they very kindly give me a lot of eggs. I like eggs in theory, but I don't tend to cook with them a lot and I almost never eat breakfast. Any suggestions for egg-heavy lunch and dinner recipes? [more inside]

So I stupidly had some eggs in my backpack along with some books and notebooks, and while the eggs didn't break completely, they did crack a little and leak whites on my stuff. I wiped off the residue but it did get on the covers and a little on the outer rims of the pages. Does dried egg white go bad/rancid? Am I going to have to throw my books and notebooks out?

Due to a series of odd events, I find myself in possession of several cartons of eggs, way more than I will be able to eat over the next week or so. Coincidentally, I will be going to a party on Friday and have agreed to contribute to the "finger-food only" buffet. I have a decent recipe for basic deviled eggs, but what else can I make that can be picked up and eaten without the use of utensils? I'm a decent intermediate cook, and have access to most ingredients. Both savory or sweet suggestions would be most welcome, as would recipes that don't particularly "feature" the eggs, so long as they get used up. Bonus points for things that can be made today or tomorrow and served on Friday night, although I will have most of the day on Friday to cook if necessary.

Has anyone seen pasteurized eggs anywhere near the Portland, OR metro area? I used to get Davidson's pasteurized eggs at Safeway, and maybe long ago at Trader Joes? Neither of those stores have them now. Davidson's doesn't seem to supply any local stores. [more inside]
What's the secret to a very fluffy omelette? I had an omelette at a non-fancy cafe today, and the texture was very fluffy, completely unlike most omelettes I've eaten or cooked. It was a folded omelette, did not have the wrinkly texture of many "country style" omelettes, and was not particularly brown on the outside. I don't believe that it was a french omelette (it wasn't cigar shaped). A quick google turns up a few different tips: add cold butter cubes to the beaten egg (today's omelette did not taste rich at all), or beat the whites into peaks before cooking (this cafe wasn't very fancy at all). Can anyone shed some light? Thanks.
We moved into a new apartment a month and a half ago, and bought a used (like new) couch from an acquaintance two weeks ago. About a week ago, I started noticing a few (total of 3 or 4) of these on the floor in my bedroom. Today I saw one on the couch, and one on the living room floor. Any idea what they are? We've seen a few enormous cockroaches and a few small flies, but we're not itchy or rashy or anything. We're located in Philadelphia.

Putting an egg in your coffee: is this a thing? In Havana the other day I acquired the Us Two Cook Book, by Jennie B. Williams, published in Toronto in 1924. The recipe for "COFFEE" begins "For each cup of water allow one heaping dessert-spoonful of finely ground coffee; put coffee in mixing bowl; add one egg (or half egg)..." [more inside]
I made some pickled eggs for the first time. I just opened the jar, and: all of the eggs are varying shades of greyish- brownish. Most of them still have white spots and stripes. They smell fine (for hardboiled eggs soaked in vinegar I mean), but will I die if I eat them?
What's a good low-carb substitute for toast for the purpose of sopping up over-easy egg yolks?
I thawed a chicken in the refrigerator and it leaked uncooked chicken juice all over the shelf. The cardboard egg carton full of eggs that was also on the shelf is now fully saturated with raw chicken juice. Can raw eggs in their shell absorb liquids like raw chicken juice? Are the eggs safe to eat? Even if soft boiled or fried over easy?
Simple question. How to hard boil an egg so that it peels easily. After 30 years of cooking for myself, I have lost my mojo and ability to do this. I just want to be able to peel my hard boiled boneless chicken without the shell sticking to the white and creating pock marks on my whites. [more inside]

It doesn't seem like egg whites can be anything but runny egg whites, but I know if they're beaten long enough they eventually become meringue. What other examples are there in which something starts out as one thing and is transformed into something altogether different? The more unexpected the better.

How many eggs can I eat? I'm a vegetarian on the South Beach diet. I'm healthy and have never had issues with cholesterol. What I'm wondering is, how many eggs is a reasonable number to eat? I've been doing at least one a day, often two. Is that too many? Does the vegetarianism mitigate it? I really love eggs. But I do want my blood to continue to be able to fit through my veins...help me!
What are some good egg free recipe books? Don't want anything as restrictive as a vegan cookbook, just need to eliminate the eggs and egg-based mixes/ingredients due to my allergy to eggs. Any good resources out there? I'll also take blogs/websites that are dedicated to egg-free pursuits.
