How To Boil Eggs

Growing up my favorite part of Easter was decorating the eggs (okay, actually, it may have been the chocolate bunnies, but eggs were right up there). Even now that we're grown up, whenever my family has the opportunity to be together for Easter, we always end up boiling up a batch and dying them. Just in case I'm not the only one who's into dying eggs, I thought I'd give you a few tips on how to boil eggs.

  1. Place eggs in a saucepan with enough water to cover the eggs by 1 inch.
  2. On high heat, bring to a boil.
  3. Cover pan, remove from heat and let sit for 10 minutes (3-4 for soft-boiled and 5-6 for medium-boiled).
  4. While eggs are sitting, fill a medium bowl with ice and water.
  5. Use a slotted spoon to transfer eggs from pan to ice bath. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  6. Remove from ice bath and enjoy!
