Note: Don't laugh. Someone I love very much says they can't boil an egg - ever. Here you go -- you know who you are.
How To Boil An Egg
Place the number of eggs you want in a sauce pan.
Fill saucepan with about 1 inch of cold water over tops of eggs.
Put saucepan on the stove and bring to rolling boil.
Turn down the heat to low heat.
Continue to cook.
If you want softboiled eggs cook for 2-3 minutes. If you want hard boiled eggs cook for 10 to 15 minutes.
Pour eggs into a colander and run cold water over them.
To peel your eggs, place inside a napkin and crack against a hard surface. Roll it around applying enough pressure to cause the shell to "crackle". Once the entire egg is crackled find a loose spot and peel away!
