Blanched haricot verts with hard egg, feta, almonds, red onion, chili pepper and herbs
So quick and delicious.
Made oil free dressing again with just red wine vinegar, salt, crushed garlic, scallion, and water
ALSO!
I am still looking for a fool-proof way to cook a proper hard-boiled egg.
I like the yolk to be perfectly creamy, not crumbly and gray.
I have tried several different methods (boiling from cold water, etc.) but nothing is spot on...
Any suggestions?

Put the eggs in cold water and bring to a boil. Immediately take off heat and let sit 10 minutes for a medium cooked yolk. Remove from hot water and cool in an ice bath(ideally) or running cold water.

I know it's cheating but I have an electric egg cooker that cooks hard or soft boiled eggs to perfection every time. After years of failing at eggs I decided to bite the bullet and get one. It is worth every cent of the $30 I spent on it.

I've found its just about timing. I bring water to a boil, add eggs, and cook 7 minutes, then set in cool to cold water briefly & peel. they're quite reliable & always very good this way

boil for 5-7 min, dump hot water, soak in cold water until shells are cool (I dump and refill with cooler water a few times), peel immediately. I think if they boil or sit in the hot shells any longer, they go grey.

I'm enjoying your blog so much.
