A Few of My Favorite Things, A Gift Guide for the Ladies

With the holidays just around the corner, you might have heard (more than once) “What do you want for Christmas?”. There have been years, in the past, where I had no idea what to tell anyone to get me. I don’t know why, but, this year I didn’t seem to have any trouble coming up with a short list of items I own (and already love) or would like to have.

The Easiest and Best Way to Hard Boil Eggs

Picture this: A tired mom stumbles out of bed and wakes her school aged kids to start the whole morning routine thing. As she’s gulping down coffee she opens the fridge to see what she can throw together and call breakfast and provide nourishment for their little brains and bodies. There’s a flash of relief when she realizes she has done some semblance of meal prep – or, in actuality, hard boiled a few eggs.
