  1. Hmm, good info because eating too many eggs is (apparently) pretty unhealthy but sometimes you just need a couple more to complete your recipe or whatever...

    Will keep this in mind for sure !!

  4. Heh, interesting. Had no idea you could substitute eggs like that. It does seem a bit inconvenient, and I'll assume it's mostly for those who can't handle eggs. Eggs are both cheap and good for your health (as far as I know at least, I'm not sure what Frank has heard..)
