When you are going to boil one egg why not boil a dozen. That way you can just grab one for a quick snack and it's a good source of protein especially when you're not feeling your best.
Put the eggs in cold water and bring to a boil. Once it comes to a boil some people just turn off the heat and cover the pot for 10 minutes. But I like to leave it uncovered and simmer for 10 minutes. Either way once your time is up pour out the hot water and fill with cold to stop the cooking process.
I add an onion skin to the water while boiling the eggs. The shells go brown so that way I know which eggs have been hard boiled.
Or you could just label an old egg carton and use that.
I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
