  1. Oh Amy. Sigh. I looked at every one of these and felt stupid for not thinking of them before. Clearly not my gift. I ma amazed by people. Thanks for sharing. Lisa~

  2. I love your blog. Just wanted to let you know, I tried the hard boiled eggs in the oven. They got small burn spots on them, stank up my kitchen, and were hard to peel, not to mention boiling them on the stove is cheaper. I thought it sounded like an easier method and thought I heard they were supposed to be easier to peel. It did not work for me. Chris

    1. I haven't tried baking,But I have tried steaming then and that works great...easy to peel

  3. @The Pennington Point-HI!! I felt the same way. Love what I learn from Pinterest!

    @Anonymous-thanks for your insight! There are pretty mixed comments on the pin itself. Some said it didn't stink up the house, some said it did. Some mentioned light little brown spots where the egg hit the metal that didn't affect the taste, but then it sounds like your spots were actually burned.
    After reading all the comments, I think I will stick to boiling, despite some raving about this method...too hit or miss for me! Thanks again for your thoughts!

  4. Here is the method I am going to use! http://momonamission.me/?p=649#url=http%3A//momonamission.me/%3Fp%3D649

  5. Thanks so much for sharing my pic! Dice rolling has never been better in my class! :)
