Before today, that’s what you could say about me. I can throw down a scrumptious Thanksgiving feast, whip up a decedent dessert, and pull random ingredients from the pantry to make a one-of-a-kind dinner. But boil an egg? Are you serious??

Before today, I had never, ever boiled an egg!

Well, the boiling part was pretty easy. I just did a Google search and found some instructions. Easy!

Peeling an egg, however, is a different story. Here’s a few tips:

  • DON’T try to break the suction of the shell on the egg. It will pull the whites apart.
  • DO hold the egg underwater as you peel. It will help pull the little shells off so you don’t keep poking your fingers. Owie!
  • DO be aware that there’s a thin membrane between the shell and egg white. Be sure to pull this off

And even if your eggs end up looking as hacked up as mine did, when you half them for Deviled Eggs no one will be able to tell.
