"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

How to boil an egg

Hopefully this is something everyone can do! (Hands up those who don't know how to do this?!)

But this is how to boil the perfect egg (at least in the author's definition of perfect). I must say, for me, the photo did make my mouth water though.

How do you like your eggs best?

My favourite way of eating eggs, is fried, 'sunny side.' This American expression describe an egg fried one side only, though till I started travelling and egging breakfast out of my home, I'd never heard of eggs being fried BOTH sides!

    I wouldn't like an egg like in that article's picture. I don't like runny yolks, but I don't like them completely cooked either.
    I read you should turn the heat off after some minutes so that the yolk doesn't become grey. It seems to help.
    As for fried eggs, I cover them with a lid so that the yolk cooks up as well.
    Scrambled eggs are nice as well but they require more work and time.

    I don't like hard boiled eggs much @SLB. I have the nasty habit of forgetting them and cooking them for too long too.
