how to boil the perfect egg
 yep, the controversy of it all. 
 I have heard & read so many darn ways to do it
 but I go with the method I grew up watching
 and well, they always come out awesome. So I will share.
 your desired amount of eggs go into the bottom of a pot.
 cover the eggs with cold (unsalted) water just until the eggs are covered.
 bring to a boil, turn off heat, cover and let stand for 10 minutes.
 uncover & run under cold water until all of the warm water is out.
 roll the eggs on counter top, peel and enjoy!

 our lunch made with our hard boiled eggs?
egg salad. pickle chips. watermelon & jazz apple chunks.


  1. That sounds an awful lot like how we boil our eggs! So I agree, the best way to make them. and yum! That lunch looks superb.

  2. Ahh! This is so funny...every time I feel like a boiled egg I have to call my mom, because I forget the "secret" of making the perfect one!! ;)
    Thanks for sharing the love and grabbing my banner that just made my day/night! <3
    Glad you found me so I could find you!!

  4. I always google how to boil an egg each time I make them lol

  5. I am SO glad you posted this... I have ruined many an imperfectly boiled egg in my time. I either boil it too long or not long enough.

    The egg salad looks awesome, too!
