Tip of the Week: Easy to Peel Eggs

The end of the school year usually means various picnics and parties for us. Last week was the Cub Scout picnic, tonight is the lacrosse picnic and Friday is the neighborhood picnic. They're all pot luck, otherwise known as bring-a-dish-to-share picnics. This year, I've broken out of the salad rut and have been making deviled eggs. When you're making them for a crowd, that's a lot of hard boiled eggs to peel.

We've all had eggs cling to their shells and only let you chip off one tiny bit at a time. Sometimes, the eggs look as if they've been mangled. Nobody likes that.

To make the eggs easy to peel, just add about 1/2 tablespoon of baking soda and a teaspoon of salt. I tried it the other day with a dozen eggs and it worked! Those shells came off like wrapping paper on Christmas morning.  That makes deviled eggs delicious, inexpensive and easy!


  1. LOL, that's awesome :) BTW, oh my God, did you change your blog's design?! Whoa, there's no other blog where I can see the old templates nowadays... :P have a great day though :)

  2. I did change it. It was time for something new and fresh! The new design looks less cluttered, right?
