Also if you put a little salt and som oil in the water the shells of the egg will peal off real nice.

I've never heard of putting oil in the boiling water when making boiled eggs.

I do know if you put oil in your boiling pasta water, your pasta will never stick. Also you should not rinse pasta, the sauce sticks better to the pasta. This is a trick they use in many resturants.......

You can also use a little bit of margerine in the pasta water. I always rinse my pasta.. I don't like the starchy taste it has without rinsing it.. I always put my pasta in the sauce & mix it up good instead of leaving it plain & putting the sauce on top. Most people mix it up anyway.

Here is what the "good egg" people think:

Now onto pasta...I never put oil or butter in my pasta water..I do use a little salt(just a tad). I think the secret of not having pasta sticking is to have alot of water to cook it in....the more the better....and to stir it when it is first cooking.

Have you ever had a hard time getting tomato paste out of the can..then try this tip;
Open both sides of the can and remove one side of the lids..turn it upside down and push in the middle of the other lid straight down and all of the paste will come out, just remove the lid. Simple and fast.

Thanks for the link Janet!! It's basically what I was saying.. get them cooled down asap. We used to raise chickens & I found out the fresher the eggs, the harder they were to peel the shells off. For colored EAster eggs, I use eggs that are at least 1 week old.. 2 weeks old if I can find them that way.
