Thank for joining my RE Friday Round-Up! Just in time for Easter and last-minute entertaining, I’m sharing my simple technique to boiling the perfect egg. You know, the egg that actually peels perfectly?

And then, of course, I’m linking to some fantastic recipes that you may want to try for Easter that involve eggs (deviled eggs) or leftover eggs (egg salad varieties) – Yum :)

I’ve tried all sorts of methods to boiling an egg, but I always come back to this one. (Recipe below.)
