I just did something that I have never done before. Of course, I just had to share!
I cooked the perfect hard boiled egg. Some might call them hard cooked eggs. Growing up we always called them hard boiled. The egg is such a simple food, but one that gives me so many challenges when cooking! Definitely my nemesis in the kitchen! I no longer attempt omelets - I can't do the flip and mine always burn. My fried eggs are just as bad. I burn those and manage to mess up the yolk. My eggs are pretty much limited to cheesy scrambled eggs for the twins made in a fry pan. Or eggs cooked in the microwave that I throw a slice of cheese on. The twins don't really like this version!
I still have not gotten to the grocery store since returning from the beach and wanted something easy to make for lunch, using ingredients I had on hand! I decided on egg salad and just cooked the most perfect eggs for it! Normally when I hard boil the eggs it is a bit of an ordeal - I need to call someone to confirm the cooking time or look it up on line (I usually turn to Rachel Ray!). This time I didn't!
I filled my pot with cold water, added my eggs. Put on stove until water came to a boil, then cooked for 9 minutes.
Which food item is your nemesis? Do you still attempt to cook it or have you thrown in the towel?
Have a great afternoon!
