Perfectly Boiled Eggs

This recipe could change your life. Just saying....

Ok, I don't know how many of you are even aware that boiled eggs are not supposed to have greenish/grey yolks. I didn't know... but now I do! A perfectly boiled egg should have a bright yellow yolk, just like if you were to scramble it or fry it! I'm going to give you the skinny on how to boil your eggs to perfection.

Put your eggs in a pot and cover them completely with cold tap water by about an inch or two. Place them on the stove over high heat, and stare at them until they start boiling. Just kidding... but keep a sly eye on them, because as soon as they get to a full boil, take them off of the heat and cover the pan. Let the eggs stand for 10 minutes. If you're using the eggs immediately, you can peel them under cold running water. If you're not using them right away, throw them gently place them in an ice water bath to lower their temperature and stop the cooking. I usually dry them off and then store them in a Tupperware in the fridge for the week.

Speaking of eggs, mom and I found these precious ceramic egg crates on clearance at Target last week, and we each picked up two. Josh thought I was crazy, but then we bought 2 1/2 dozen farm fresh eggs at Publix, and they weren't easy to store - voila! They are being used!
