I’m not that great of a cook, but I like food.
Gabe does most of the quality cooking in this joint, but I try to do at least half of the cooking.
This is why I was on the internet trying to figure out how to hard boil an egg.
I mean, yes, I know you boil eggs in a pan with water in it on the stove, but I was looking for cooking times. Hard boiled eggs always trip me up.
I went to my handy dandy search engine and I searched for “perfect hard boiled egg”.
And you want to hear something crazy? I chose the third entry because it looked the most promising and it just so happens that I personally knew the person who wrote the article.
I don’t mean that I met her at a book signing or we were introduced once at a cocktail party. I mean she used to be my boss.
I just took 40 minutes finding a picture of us together from BlogHer ’07 and it turns out I look like a crazy person with balloon head and so I won’t post it, but thanks to the glory that is Flickr (and the genius of Isabel via twitter):

We are the two in the middle. I am the pasty one. She is the one with the pretty hair.
My whole point is that what are the odds that I find a random recipe on the internet and it turns out to be written by someone I actually know? Maybe this web isn’t so wide after all.
And also, thanks, Stefania. My eggs were perfect.
