How to make a NAKED Egg DIY

When I first heard and saw the naked egg, a few nights ago,  I was so excited and giddy to make it with the kids. I told them about it the next day. They got excited as well, specially after showing them the video. Everyones excitement went to the crapper when we found out we were out of vinegar. You should have seen their sad disappointed faces :-( I promised them I will get some vinegar the next day.

So when they got home from school. I told them naked egg project is on the go.  You can get the entire instructions HERE or HERE.

Photos below are just some idea on what the eggs will look like in the process.

We colored Lexi's egg blue and the egg shell turned pastel blue. 

This is what it looks like after washing off the shell. As you can see I'm squishing it a little bit. 
Not too much or you will have egg goo all over the place. 

The egg got bigger (sorry the other photo I took next to the egg with shell was blurry. UGH!! Take extra shots next time.) 

My attempt to bounce. 1, 2, 3, DROP! 

Actual bounce shot. It took many attempts. LOL! 

Lexi tried the bouncy thing and her eggs broke. As you can see the egg white turned into a bluish tint and a little bit of the outside part of the yolk.

Joshua opted for the orange color. Above, still has the shell but already soft. 

Beautiful crimson rusty very shiny color. I almost wanted to just preserve it. 
It was so pretty to look at.

Then I had an idea about putting it on top of a flashlight, and we did. It's awesome! You can see the yolk.

I hope you all enjoyed our naked egg. We had a great time experimenting. Next time we will try it with the corn syrup.

Not so fansy Chicken Cordon Bleu Recipe

This is the very very first time I've made this dish.  I've wanted to make this dish a long time ago but the recipes online mostly requires pounding the chicken and rolling and.... to much work for me. LOL!

I then thought hmmmm! I'm pretty sure it doesn't need to be flat. Why can't I just use chicken breast and not worry about it being flat. So I searched and searched and finally stumbled into something. I LIKE LOVE IT!!!!  It tasted very good and the chicken was so juicy and best of all the hubby and kids loved it.

Doesn't that look good? I thought so. And, it was easy to make.

Here's what you need:

* 1 package stuffing mic (I used chicken)
* 6 small boneless and no skin chicken breast
* 6 slices deli sliced ham
* 1 can cream of chicken 
* 6 slices of swiss cheese

How to make: (With regular oven)

1. Preheat oven to 400F.
2. Make the stuffing (follow the direction on the box) set aside.
3. Place the cream of chicken on a microwaveable dish and heat on high for 1 or 2 minutes (please take it out of the can before heating or you will have an exploding microwave, lol)
4. Spray a 13x9 baking dish with spam and place chicken, top it with the ham, stuffing (depends how much stuffing you want. I used all of mine on all 6 chicken and just pile it on top. Scoops cream of chicken on top.
5. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until chicken is done. (Chicken breast is cook at 180F). Top with cheese and bake another 5 minutes to melt.
6. Enjoy!

** If using a Nuwave oven:

1. Use an aluminum foil and I lightly spray it with spam. Place individual chicken and top with ham and stuffing. Cook on high for 10 minutes.
2. Scoop cream of chicken right out of the can on top of the stuffing. Cook another 8-10 minutes on high.
3. Top with cheese and I do another 3 minutes to melt the cheese.
4. Enjoy!
