Kitchen Tip: Easy to Peel Hard Boiled Eggs

If you’re tired of removing half of your hard boiled egg with the shell because it’s stuck on tight, simply steam your eggs for 20 minutes, then run them under cool water to stop the cooking process. They’ll be perfectly cooked and easy to peel.

Recipe of the Week: Chicken and Farro Salad with Lemon-Dill Dressing

Feel free to substitute quinoa or your favorite grain for the farro, or substitute salmon for chicken to increase heart healthy omega-3 fats.
