Not rocket science – I know – but learning how to boil eggs can come in pretty handy thru parenthood. THINK: school lunch, picnics, Easter egg decorating. Possibly my most unoriginal (but good-to-know) DIY yet…how to boil eggs…
The secret on how to boil eggs: place eggs first then bring water to a boil.
Fill pot with cold water. Gently (and I mean gently) slide eggs into water. Bring pot to a boil. When bubbles start popping up (showing water is boiled) turn off heat and cover pot. (At this point walk away…check emails…go on twitter). Leave eggs covered for 10 minutes.
Eggs will be perfectly boiled.
