Note: The video in this post mentions a "recent egg recall." Don't fret! This video is from August 2010, and to my knowledge, there is no current egg recall to be concerned about.

Happy World Egg Day!

Although I generally enjoy cooking and am pretty decent in the kitchen, there are a handful of basics I just can't seem to commit to memory. Cooking rice (to stir or not to stir, lid on or off?). Boiling potatoes (wait for the water to boil or add potatoes to cold water?). And hard boiled eggs.

Messing up hard boiled eggs can make for hard-to-peel eggs with weird green yolks, plus there's the whole egg safety thing to consider. I found this video from the American Egg Board's YouTube channel, along with some other interesting egg-related how-to videos. This Jeffrey Saad knows his egg cooking, and I think I might finally be able to perfect my hard boiled egg (see one, do one, teach one?). Oh, and I also learned from it that I've been making scrambled eggs less-than-perfect. Ah, well.
