I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving!
We had a lovely dinner, watched Christmas movies, and relaxed.
This year while searching out better ways to hard boil eggs for deviled eggs, I came across some awesome tips that actually worked. Only one, out of a dozen, very fresh eggs were slightly pitted, all the rest peeled perfectly and quickly. I never knew that if your yolks are green or grey they are overcooked! The yolks came out a super bright yellow.
So here is what I did: Place eggs in a large pot of cold water with a tbsp or two of vinegar, about 1-2 inches above the eggs and bring to a rolling boil. Once boiling, shut off stove top, cover, and let sit for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes rinse briefly in cold water to cool then roll all the eggs on the countertop to crack them and then immediately peel under running cold water. Most people put them in an ice bath, run cold water over them, or store in fridge until ready to use, but the longer they are in cold water, the harder they are to peel. I will always hard boil & peel eggs this way!
On a side note, we've been so busy with house hunting and will be in transition soon again (we're so excited to buy a house, expand our family, settle down, and start new) so I may not be very active until early next year with new jewelry and/or posts. I truly miss creating, but the time is right for us to move into a new direction in our lives.
I wish you all a very happy holiday season & new year!
