Foolproof Hard-Cooked Eggs
This is a never-fail way to cook eggs. They turn out moist with creamy yolks and firm yet tender whites. There is no trace of a green ring. Make as few or as many eggs as you need.
Use a pot large enough to hold eggs in a single layer, cover with 1 inch water, and bring to boil over high heat. (Don’t overcook.) Remove pan from heat, cover, and let sit 10 minutes. (Set a timer)
Meanwhile, fill a bowl with cold water and several ice cubes. Transfer eggs to ice water bath with slotted spoon; let sit for at least 5 minutes, so they are really cold. Peel eggs.
Eggs peel real easy when they are very, very cold.

I’ve decided to put this recipe on here so I don’t have to look it up every time I need self-rising flour. I don’t use self-rising flour very often, so making my own is easier and I don’t have to worry about it getting old.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Stir or sift together flour, salt and baking powder and baking soda you have self-rising flour.

- 1/4 teaspoon crushed celery seeds
- 1/4 teaspoon sugar
Combine all ingredients and store in an airtight container.
