LOL I always google it.  I can never remember how long they are supposed to boil and whether you are supposed to put cold water over them at the end.  Every year around Easter I am forced to look it up!

haha I have cooked almost every day for YEARS and I still have to check the bag of frozen chicken breasts every single time to see how long I need to put them in the oven and at what temperature. How many hundreds of times I’ve made chicken in the oven and I still can’t remember how long to cook them for …

One time my FI was helping me bake a cake, and I was using my stand mixer.  I asked him to add three eggs and he cracked them, not into the stand mixer, but into the empty, greased cake pans!  I was just like “awww come on buddy!!”

I also have to check the recipe for hard boiled eggs quite regularly.  And it doesn’t matter how many billion times I make rice krispie squares, I always need to read it off the box.

I make about 99% of the meals on our house and I have trouble not burning canned soup… Lol I don’t have trouble with anything else, but the dang can of soup gets me every time! haha

@sunshine_kar:  put eggs in pot, cover with cold water, set over stove (lid off) and bring to a boil. Once water has reached boiling, remove pot from heat, cover, and let sit for 15 minutes (though I’ve also heard 12)

 

This was a point of contention between fi and I a couple of years ago. Needless to say, google verified my cooking savvy, and I won. XD Now I’ve got it on lock down because of the experience

haha, i don’t know how to prepare eggs of any kind! i don’t eat eggs, i don’t like eggs, so unless they’re going in a cake, i have no use for them in my life, lol. i’m sure i’ll have to learn eventually, tho.

I’m not 100% sure WHEN something is boiling. I blame my mother (and my over analyzing self) bc she told me that there is asoft boil, hard boil, and a rolling boil. What just plain boiling?! Argh! I have a “cooking for dummies” book that I consult often. I also don’t know what a skillet is. All pans are the same to me, just different sizes. Meh.

I used to have to look it up all of the time too, but I ended up getting this little gizmo as a gift: Egg Perfect Timer

You just plop it in your pot with your eggs, and it changed color based upon ‘doneness’.

Egg Perfect Timer Egg Perfect Timer Love it!
