I consider myself to be a rather patient person. I can handle crying newborns, testing-the-limit toddlers, cranky people and almost any stressful situation. It takes quite a bit to get my feathers ruffled.
In regards to cooking however there are two things that I don’t make. Pancakes and deviled eggs. For some reason these two items take just the right amount of patience and attention. I tend to flip pancakes either too early (runny) or too late (burnt). I also have not hard-boiled eggs for the same reason. I either forget how long they were in the pot or I pull them too soon! It’s unbelievable that I can make just about anything except these two! My husband makes the pancakes in this family and I had given up completely on making deviled eggs.
Traveling through Pinterest the other day I ran across a pin explaining how to bake eggs to hard-boil them. I have never heard of this method! A perfect tutorial for wacky Wednesday. I’m sure I might be the only one that hasn’t heard of this but this is for sure the method for me. I can make anything in an oven!!
Bake the eggs at 325 for 30 minutes. You can put the eggs in a cupcake pan. I didn’t. I put them right on the rack with a cookie sheet underneath just in case one broke.
Recipe for deviled eggs (from Deviled Eggs).

1/4 tsp ground black pepper
Paprika for garnish or a light sprinkle of chili powder for extra kick
