I’ve decided to start a series of easy techniques or recipes. I’m calling it Lazy Mondays. Hopefully I won’t be too lazy and actually follow through. The goal is to motivate myself to learn and share basic recipes and techniques that only take minutes to do. They might be things that you already know and perfect or they might be things that you didn’t think of trying before.

Feel free to suggest topics and ideas.

I’m starting this off with my way of making Hard Boiled eggs. You can make these for snacking, as a base for an egg salad sandwich, to put in soups or whatever your heart desires.


Hard Boiled Eggs


  • Eggs
  • Water


  1. In a saucepan, put the eggs in a single layer, don’t overcrowd. Fill with cold water, make sure the eggs are covered by 2 inches of water.
  2. Put the burner on HIGH and bring water to a full boil, uncoverd. Once the water starts to boil remove from heat and cover with lid. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  3. With a slotted spoon transfer eggs to a bowl with cold water. Have the bowl sit in the sink and let cold water run in the bowl for a minute or two to cool the eggs.
  4. Once the eggs are cold enough to handle, crack the shell by tapping with the back of a spoon. Find a crack where the tip of the spoon will fit and gently peel the shell.

*Hard boiled eggs in their shell will last 5 days in the refrigerator.
