The Easy Peel Way to Boil an Egg

How frustrating is it to boil your eggs, and go to peel them, and the shell comes off hard, or the eggs stick to the shell leaving behind huge gouges. This is especially frustrating when you are trying to put together an attractive deviled egg tray. So I have put together this post to show you the easy peel way to boil an egg.

  • Put your eggs in the bottom of a pot

  • Fill water to an inch above the top of the eggs

  • Set on a burner that is running on high

  • Add ½ tsp of salt and ½ tsp of baking soda

  • Once eggs come to a rolling boil turn the burner off, and cover the pot

  • Set a timer for  12 minutes

  • Run under cold water for a couple of minutes, and peel immediately

I’m April, a wife and mother of two. Since the end of 2010 I have been battling autoimmune diseases: and facing those have left me with limited physical abilities, limited energy, and limited funds; so I created this blog to document my journey : to simplifying my life, hopefully finding tips and tricks and resources to help save me time, money, and energy. I am hoping not only to share my journey, but to inspire others with similar challenges. Personally I think everyone would welcome ways to save time, money, and energy, but to some it is imperative. The content you can expect to see includes life hacks, organizational and time management resources, tips and tricks to saving money, ideas and resources for making money doing simple tasks or passively, and simple inexpensive gift giving ideas. To those of you who may be concerned that this may just be one big pity party, I want to be clear. I have conditions that have altered my abilities, but this is about taking as much control over my life as I possibly can, and to make it a positive experience. I will not however, turn anyone away if they ask about my illnesses specifically. Perhaps they are newly diagnosed, and need some advice that I haven’t shared. I encourage those individuals to contact me any time. I want people to be able to positively bounce ideas off of one another to make it a blog that everyone can benefit from.
