Wow, I didn’t know chicory was endive! Coffee with greens huh.
Which is maybe why I prefer the real thing 🙂

Do you add the toothpicks and the vinegar for the eggs? I don’t think I really knew any of these!
When I used to boil eggs, I just added one toothpick per egg to the water. Not sure why it works though. Now I have an egg boiler 🙂
