Hard Boiled Eggs

Here's the solution for the proverbial "I can't even boil an egg." These tips make it even easier. It's great to make a bunch of hard boiled eggs every week to have an easy, on-the-go breakfast or lunch. The secret is to place cold eggs in cold water and boil to avoid egg cracking. Hard boiled eggs take about 10 minutes. Then cool them down by placing the pot under cold water. Peeling is easy when you do it under cold running water.
