I do have a tip today, but consider this: this kitchen tip is coming from someone who just this week baked the cardboard circle under the frozen pizza along with the pizza.
OK, here's the tip: My kids love deviled eggs. Or, as Bobby Bouche's momma would say, "Debiled eggs."
But I hate peeling them. So a here's quick and FUN (emphasis on "fun") tip for popping those boiled (or "bowled" as Paula Deen would say) eggs right out of their shells.
1. Start with depositing eggs into cold water, and bring them to a low to medium boil for about 12 minutes. Some people just bring them to a boil, take them off the heat and let them sort of set. I like mine done. Mine looked like the ones in this pic.
2. Shock the eggs by placing them in cold water with 1 teaspoon of baking soda and lots of ice. I'm sure the baking soda does something to the chemical make up of something which changes something, but I'm not Bill Nye, so I don't know.
3. Crack the small end of the egg and remove a small piece.
4. Crack the wide end of the egg and remove a small piece.
5. Hold the egg in one hand and place the other at the wide end.
6. Blow into the narrow end of the egg, which will pop it out the other end, of course, and voila, you have a clean egg, except for maybe a little spittle.
7. If you're all squeamish about spittle on the egg, you can always wash it off. And that is a sentence I never dreamed I'd ever say. Or write.
Now, I have done this procedure several times, and I have to confess that you may prefer to simply peel them the old fashioned way, but then there won't be any funny lip gloss residue on your shells, and you will have passed up a chance to make a memory with your kids because you are being all "Kate Gosselin" about it. So I think it's worth it just to have some fun.
PS: I love Jon and Kate, so don't chastise me.
PPS: A video doing some procedure like this would make a great video post for "I See What You're Saying!"
