Are you cooking eggs this weekend?
During Easter a lot of us are cooking eggs to eat or to hunt. Either way, how are you cooking your eggs?
Do you boil them?
Let me give you an awesome hassle free way to make what is formerly called hard boiled eggs.
Don’t BOIL them, BAKE them!! Yep you heard right.
Take a muffin pan place your eggs in the pan.
Preheat the oven to 325F
Bake eggs for 22-25 mins.
Remove and immediately dump into a bowl of ice water. (this makes them easy to peel)
Voila! NO BOILING OR WATCHING REQUIRED. Depending on how done you like your eggs you will soon master how long to cook them down to the minute. Put it in the oven and walk away!!
Good Luck and Happy Easter!!
Week 4 we talk about how we sustain the projects we have worked on.
One of my favorite websites to find good recipes is www.allrecipes.com .
Well it is full of recipes that others have already tried and rated. So if 1000 people tried it and gave it five stars I am gonna try it. I have found some of my best recipes that way. You can also search recipes by ingredients you have on hand. You should give them a try. Its free.
Another good thing about finding the recipes online at allrecipes or places like them is that you can save things to your own personal recipe box. Often times this is where I keep those recipes I would like to try in. When I know they are a keeper then they get printed and put in my cookbook.
Having all your recipes organized helps to save time when you are in a hurry and you need that certain cake to take to a function. It also helps you during the holidays. No searching through books and books, when you have all your favorite recipes in one place. It also helps when you are meal planning. Meal planning saves money.

1 bar of Fels Naptha laundry soap
1 cup of BORAX
1 cup of Arm & Harm Washing soda (not baking soda!)
4 cups water
5 gallon bucket
Grate the Soap
Put in a pot on medium heat with 4 cups of water. Stir until soap is completely dissolved.
Fill 5 gallon bucket half full of hot tap water. Pour soap mixture into 5 gallon bucket. Mix Borax and Washing soda until fully dissolved. Fill the rest of 5 gallon bucket with hot water.
Let it sit overnight. In the morning it will set up a gel substance on the top. Be sure you mix it up well so it will not be clumpy. I get best results when I use my husbands’ mixer attachment on his drill ( the one in the pic).
Fill used laundry containers with the solution. Shake gently before each use. Use 1 full capful per load.
This recipe last approximately 3 months. I spend less than $20.00 a year on laundry detergent now!
