let’s talk about eggs


I have a fool proof method to make yourself the perfect soft boiled or hard boiled egg, every single time.

Place eggs in a pot and cover with about 1 inch of cold water.  Bring to a boil, count off 30 seconds, turn off heat, cover and set timer for 3 minutes for soft boiled and 10 minutes for hard boiled.  Drain and run under cold water for a few minutes. Perfect, every single time.

Eggs & Soldiers

Soft boiled eggs…. top the eggs immediately when done to prevent overcooking.  Earth shattering I know. Make some toast, cut into fingers… not exactly rocket science either.


Egg Salad

4 boiled eggs cooled, peeled and chopped

2 tbsp chopped parsley

1/2 tsp dry mustard

1/4 tsp paprika

salt and pepper

mayo to bind

sometimes if I’m feeling really frisky I add finely chopped red onion and gherkins, for some extra crunch!

Mix everything together…. couldn’t be easier now could it?


slather a nice heap of egg salad onto me nan’s beer bread, recipe here.

    excuse the pun…but what a “crack up” the sign at the church is! i’ve seen photos before that you have posted from that church…is that right?
    Anyway, my husband just loves hard boiled eggs sliced (with the egg slicer) on toast. I’m more of an eggs benedict fan…have you got any variations on eggs bene?
