The easiest - hardboiled eggs in the Instant Pot

I think I've mentioned before that I am terrible - truly terrible! at peeling hard boiled eggs.
No matter what method I try I always gouge half the white off with the shell.  I can't help it; it's a gift.

Before we got our instant pot I'd read that making hardboiled eggs in it was not only easy, but they were super easy to peel too.  

It's a true damn miracle guys.

And it's also true that hardboiling the eggs in the IP is super easy as well.

Pour 1 cup of water into the bottom of the IP.  Place the steam rack in the pot, and lay on as many eggs as you'd like.

Put the lid on and set the pressure cook setting for 5 minutes.
When it beeps, let it sit for 5 more minutes, then vent to release the pressure.

Remove the eggs to an ice bath and let cool.

Not only is it fast and foolproof, but THE EGGS POP RIGHT OUT OF THE SHELLS.
It's a beautiful thing.

We've been making a batch every couple of weeks and I sometimes make a couple of deviled eggs for breakfast - and this weekend I've been eyeing this muffuletta deviled eggs recipe.

Happy Sunday!

Kamloops Symphony Book Sale - for the last time I promise

I got invited to go to the book sale at lunch today and found more treasures!  I had just enough money to pay for these ones - if I'd had more bucks, there were at least 3 more books that would have come home with me.

Sale is on until April 20!

ways with cauliflower

Cauliflower is everywhere now - it's rice, it's pizza crust, it's wings.  

We love cauliflower and having some new exciting ways to cook it is fun.

This kick started a bit of a cauliflower craze in the house that went well until we tried cauliflower biscuits which was a bad idea.  So bad.

Stick with wings and crusts, Cauli.  Although I hear beets are trying to make a move on your turf....

Went back yesterday for another look-see and found 4 more beauties to bring home.

The Mister hit the big time with this old Star Wars book.  He had this as a child.  I might have too.
