Happy Easter, and the perfect hard boiled egg

The Easter bunny came last night!  We opened baskets first thing, read our new books, played with some cool new toys, ate chocolate before breakfast, worked in the yard, took a siesta, and then headed for a picnic to share cuban sandwiches and cupcakes under warm sunshine. It was a beautiful day.

Yesterday we dyed our easter eggs. To prep them for coloring, I boiled a dozen a la Martha Stewart and they were so good we ate every one of them before the afternoon was over. The boiled egg isn't fool proof, but this is as easy as it gets.
  • Place a dozen eggs in a pot and cover with cool water  
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat
  • Remove the pot from the heat, let eggs sit for 12 minutes
  • Transfer eggs to a colander and run cold water over the eggs until they are cool to the touch  
  • Eat, eat, eat. Repeat
Happy Easter!
