How to Make Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs
Now you are probably wondering how to make the perfect hard-boiled egg. Here’s how I like to do it.
Fill a pot with cold water. Add the eggs ensuring they are covered with water. Bring the water to a boil. Turn off heat and cover and let sit for 13 minutes. Not 12 minutes. Not 14 minutes. 13 minutes. Remove eggs from pot and place in an ice bath for 5 minutes. This will prevent the eggs from cooking further AND make them easier to peel. Voila!

Wear disposable gloves when handling Hot Peppers.
The capsaicin in hot peppers is what makes peppers hot. If you handle hot peppers gloveless, it’s a guarantee that you’re in for a nasty case of chili burn, both on your fingers and anywhere you rub. Like your face. Ouch!
Even if you wear disposable gloves, be careful about what you touch. The gloves are going to protect your fingers, but touching any part of your body with the gloves after you’ve handled hot peppers can lead to severe chili burn. Resist the temptation to rub your eyes. Wait until you’ve removed your gloves and washed your hands thoroughly with soap.
