    Hi Jessica, you light up my days and always make me smile I love it. I love the cow timer, moo! What was the music in the background? You’re the greatest, and yes I hate it when I try to peel a hard boiled egg but the shell sticks to the egg, ugh. Say hi to Oliver! Woof!

    The fascinating thing to me is that you’ve actually cracked the case (not the shell) and determined the EXACT number of minutes required to execute this process, i.e. the 2-7-2 method (….which clearly suggests that perhaps I’m over-boiling at my usual 15…ya think?!) So, duly noted, Ms. Crabster…but I may have to wait til next Easter to see.

    I never had trouble peeling eggs until I bought some chickens and started using fresh eggs. They are impossible to peel. Will try your method and see if it works. I’m a little ADD so the 2-7-2 thing is going to be a challenge:)

    Well, now I know what my problem is lol. I was under the impression 15 minutes was standard practice (no idea where I got that though) so its time to correct my way of thinking so we can actually EAT the eggs I cook LOL.
