Make your own supply of chopped/minced garlic to save time! Cooking with garlic is fun, but peeling and mincing cloves each time you need it can be time consuming. Take a few extra minutes to peel all of the cloves from a head or two of garlic. Mince or chop the clove (don't make the pieces too small) and store it in an airtight container with olive oil in the refrigerator. You have minced garlic when you need it. It can lose flavor faster than whole cloves, but the time savings is worth it.
Hard-cooked eggs may be difficult to peel if they are very fresh. This is because an egg shrinks inside during storage, which pulls the inner membrane away from the inside of the shell. For this reason, a hard-cooked egg will peel more easily if it has been stored for one or two weeks before it is cooked.
After boiling, crackle the shell all over by tapping gently then hold under running water to make peeling easier. Eggs may be harder to peel if they are not cooked long enough.
Hard cooked eggs should be kept refrigerated and used within one week.
