  1. I don’t know why but, I always like to know how people boil there eggs. Maybe because I always hear new tricks. I never heard of toothpicks in the water. I have let them sit in warm water to bring them down to room temp before boiling

    1. I used to use that method, but now we have an egg boiler and I don’t have to worry about the eggs cracking anymore 🙂

  2. Wow, that really was a great quiz. I have about three lines of enquiry now to follow up with Google… and seriously? People call hazelnuts dilberts?

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
