We love eggs around here!

Sometimes I have a terrible habit of buying and then not using them as soon as I should. Several years ago my mother in law told me about a little trick with water that you can use to tell if your egg is still fresh.

There you go!

I tried this today and sure enough, my eggs stood on one end at the bottom of the bowl.

This is also helpful if you have farm eggs which don’t come with expiration dates..lol!

Brian and I are also big fans of eating hard boiled eggs. I love to do a huge batch and then put them in the fridge to grab quickly on the go in the mornings.

We’ve pretty much perfected our hard boiled egg system around here, but I’m not going to waste time doing photos and steps for you since plenty of other bloggers have already done that for me.

Here is one step by step tutorial that is almost exactly like what we do for hard boiling our eggs. The only thing I would add is we completely cover our eggs with ice after boiling for about 10 minutes. This makes them so much easier to peel.
