The Modern Proper teaches you how to make the perfect soft scrambled egg.  All you need is that recipe and a great non-stick egg pan.

    I love that article about relationships. One of my favorite quotes about this is from a nerdy science fiction book. I’ve only been married a year, (together for three years) and it’s not easy, but it is worth it. “Love is not a whim. Love is not a flower that fades with a few fleeting years.
