Greg Johnson
Ciao Bella!

Tonight’s dinner destination? Italy! Combining
the lessons and experience of both his mother
and grandmother, as well as his training as
a chef, Greg Johnson is passing the legacy of
Italian cooking on to his own children.
When I think of comfort food, I think of the way it
brings you back to a time in your life when you had a really
good feeling. This particular dish brings me back to three
places, and it all starts with my grandma.
My grandma was living in L.A., living in a mobile home,
and she had a lot of pride. One of the first things I can
remember is being at her house, and it was beautifully
decorated, and she would be cooking. My mom cooked, too,
but this seemed different; nothing was store bought. There
was always a pot of sauce cooking on the stove, and
homemade noodles hanging over the backs of the chairs.
Fast-forward a few years, and I would come home after
school and my mom would be making spaghetti sauce
in an electric skillet. Even though we had a stove, she’d use
this square skillet. I could smell it as soon as I walked in,
and I’d be so happy because I’d know it was spaghetti
night. There would be garlic bread, and it was all perfect.
Jump ahead to when I’m 21 years old, I’m in culinary
school, and I’m working at my first restaurant job while
I’m in school. It’s an authentic Italian restaurant, the chef
is straight from Italy, and he’s making Bolognese sauce.
I realize it’s basically the same sauce my mother and
grandmother had been making, but with chef techniques.
Now I kind of pull from all three of those recipes to
make this dish, and I make it for my kids. Just one bite
and I’m back to all three of those places in my life.

When you have kids, you realize there’s something you
care about more than yourself. I want to give my kids the
best things possible. The good feeling of being with my
grandma, home with my parents, cooking in restaurants—
now I can pass that on to my kids. I hope when they’re in
their 20s and in college or traveling, they’ll think back to
when they made sauce and noodles with their dad.
Listen to Greg tell his own story while you learn how to
make his Bolognese sauce (and homemade noodles, if you’re
feeling ambitious!) at allrecipes.com/bolognese-video.
ALLRECIPES.COM/BOLOGNESE-SAUCE
1 pound ground beef (85% lean)
FROM AR KITCHEN
! This can be very hard to manage
in a skillet, even an extra-large
one—use a covered pot instead.
! If not using nonstick cookware,
add 2 tablespoons olive oil when
browning meat.
! Beef took 6 minutes to brown; we
added 1½ teaspoons salt at start and
¼ teaspoon black pepper at end.
! We simmered covered for 1½
hours; it would concentrate too
much if uncovered.
! Total yield was 8 cups; 2 cups
was enough to dress 9 ounces fresh
fettuccine (4 small portions).
2 allrecipes.com
1 cup diced onion
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 carrot, shredded
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 bay leaf
salt and ground black pepper
to taste
42 ounces canned crushed
tomatoes (such as San Marzano)
2 cups water
8 to 10 ounces dried or fresh pasta
1 tablespoon butter
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese,
plus extra for serving
1 Heat a large skillet over high heat. Stir
in the beef, onion, garlic, and carrot. Cook
and stir until the beef is crumbly, evenly
browned, and no longer pink. Drain
and discard any excess grease. Stir in
the oregano, garlic powder, bay leaf, and
salt and pepper. Add the tomatoes and
water. Bring to boil, then reduce heat to
medium-low and continue to simmer for
1 to 1½ hours. Pour all but 2 cups of the
sauce in an airtight container and freeze
for future use.
2 Cook pasta according to package
instructions and drain.
3 Stir butter and Parmesan cheese into
reserved 2 cups of sauce over medium
heat. Stir noodles into sauce, and toss
until pasta is well coated. Serve in large
bowls with more Parmesan cheese.

SAVE MONEY, SAVE TIME
Ka-ching! Hang on to $200 this month.
We’ve all heard of so-called extreme couponers—you know, those
rabid coupon clippers who somehow manage to snap up their
groceries for mere pennies (and who live in houses stocked to
the ceiling like Costco). But you don’t have to be obsessed to save
big. These simple tips can slash a $500 monthly grocery bill for
a family of four nearly in half, or even more!
Photo: Blaine Moats.
MAKE A GROCERY LIST. And
stick to it! By planning your
meals in advance and making a
grocery list, you’re far less likely
to succumb to temptation and
buy impulse items (a.k.a., things
you don’t need) at the grocery
store. In fact, researchers at
the Wharton School found
unplanned purchases can tack
on at least an extra 20% to the
average grocery bill. The Menu
Planner on Allrecipes.com
makes it easy to plan meals and
create a shopping list (allrecipes
.com/menuplanner).
Monthly savings: $50
PAPER OR PLASTIC? We’re not
talking bags here, but cash or
credit. If you use plastic, make
your credit card work harder
for you. Look for all-purpose
cards that offer cash back on
groceries, or store cards (such
as Target’s) that give you an
instant discount. But beware:
You lose the savings if you
rack up interest charges, so pay
off the balance every month.
Monthly savings: $15
SNIP ’N’ SAVE. Yes, coupons
can save you money. No, you
don’t have to go coupon crazy.
Spend just 10 to 15 minutes a
week thumbing through your
newspaper’s weekly flyers or
cruising a couple coupon
websites like Coupons.com, and
you can easily find savings on
stuff your family needs.
Monthly savings: $15
CASH INCENTIVE. Take the
all-cash challenge! According to
the market research firm D&B,
consumers who shop with cash
alone spend an average of 12%
to 18% less than those who
shop with credit cards. So leave
the cards at home and take
only what you’ve budgeted for
groceries in cash.
Monthly savings: $40
SHOP AROUND. Research shows
that consumers who do their
weekly shopping at two or more
stores save money (more than
15%, in fact) because they’re
more likely to take advantage
of lower prices for specific
items. For example, you can
often get a better deal on health
and beauty products by visiting
your drugstore in addition to
shopping at the supermarket.
Monthly savings: $25
TRY GENERIC. Store-brand
products have come a long way.
Not only are they often
produced by brand-name
manufacturers, they can be
upwards of 20% cheaper than
name brands. So give generics
a try, and stick with the ones
your family likes.
Monthly savings: $20
AVOID GIMMICK PRICING.
Supermarkets can be clever
in getting you to spend more.
Promotions like “10 for $10”
and “4 for $5” seem like a
great deal, but watch out:
Those products may not
actually be on sale. Even if
they are, remember that you
rarely need to buy the stated
number to get the sale price.
Monthly savings: $5
PRICEY THINGS COMES IN
SMALL PACKAGES. Tiny
items are cute, but your best
bet for snack foods is almost
always to buy the largest
size and divvy it up yourself.
(Use the nutrition label as
a guide if you’re concerned
about portion control.) For
example, Mini Oreo cookies
in snack packs cost three
times more per cookie than
Oreos in a family pack.
Monthly savings: $20
TIME IS MONEY. You pay a
premium for “convenience,”
whether buying pre-packaged
salad greens, pre-cut fruit
or spice mixes. Overall, it’s
cheaper to just to make your
own salad, cut your own fresh
fruit or mix your own spices.
Plus, going DIY in the kitchen
only adds about 10 extra
minutes to meal prep, according
to the UCLA Center on the
Everyday Lives of Families.
Monthly savings: $10

SCOTTDOG=NO PRO ASKS Does anyone remember this type of cake pan?
NANNY129 STAR! SAYS My mom had them. I loved for her to bake a cake because
I got to “turn” the pan to release the cake :-) Great memory—thanks. Mama would make
seven-layer Italian cream cakes—she had two pans. Loved those days.
RANDY SAYS I have two sets of these cake pans. They are the only ones I use when
making layer cakes. I don’t quite know where I got them from, but I would sooner give
up my right arm than give up these!
FROM AR KITCHEN Vermontcountrystore.com, $11 for a set of two
cake pans with cutter bars
KITCHEN GADGET GIDGET SAYS Keeping a garbage bowl on the counter is
very efficient and practical. My workspace is somewhat limited, and the addition
of another bowl for trash to my counter wasn’t ideal. The KitchenArt Scrap
Trap bin and scraper hangs on the top of your cupboard door or drawer. I use it
sometimes right below my cutting board and just scrape everything into it off
my board. The key is to place the bin within arm’s length of where you work in
your kitchen so it’s always there for you (just like chocolate).
FROM AR KITCHEN We agree: This looks like a really handy
way to keep your counter clean when you’re cooking! Kitchenart.com, $10

! Filling was a little wet—reduce
water by ¼ cup.
! Use ½ cup lemon juice—2
lemons may not give you enough.
! Needed 12 minutes baking time.
1 cup white sugar
QUICK TIP
Use a premade
piecrust you
can find in
your grocer’s
freezer.
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons cornstarch
¼ teaspoon salt
1½ cups water
2 lemons, zested and juiced
2 tablespoons butter
4 egg yolks, beaten
1 (9 inch) piecrust, baked
›
4 egg whites
See how to make this recipe at allrecipes.com/lemon-meringue-video.
YOU SAID
! Everyone who is having problems with water in your pie: You cannot cover
a lemon meringue pie with plastic wrap to store it. Condensation forms and
will leave you with a puddle in your pie! To store, very loosely cover it with
tented aluminum foil, leaving a little opening for moisture to escape.
—LOVECED
! Even though I knew better, I ended up making the filling first and then the
meringue: Big mistake! Make the meringue first, set it aside, and then make
the filling. —Bakeswithluv
! I use my microwave in any instance where you might use a double boiler
or have to stir on the stove. So simple. Mix first 6 ingredients in 4 cup
microwave bowl. Cook on high until boils, add butter, and mix hot mixture
with egg yolks, return to microwave, and bring to a boil again. No stirring
constantly and no mess. —Barb
Get the Most Juice Put a lemon on the counter, then roll it under the palm
of your hand, pressing down hard—you’re breaking up the membranes and
pulp inside, which releases more liquid. If you’ve got a hard lemon that’s not
responding to rolling, microwave it for 15 to 20 seconds.

6 tablespoons white sugar
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2 To make lemon filling: In a medium
saucepan, whisk together 1 cup sugar,
flour, cornstarch, and salt. Stir in water,
lemon juice, and lemon zest. Cook over
medium-high heat, stirring frequently,
until mixture comes to a boil. Stir in
butter. Place egg yolks in a small bowl
and gradually whisk in ½ cup of hot
sugar mixture. Whisk egg yolk mixture
back into remaining sugar mixture.
Bring to a boil and continue to cook
while stirring constantly until thick.
Remove from heat. Pour filling into
baked pie shell.
3 To make meringue: In a large glass
or metal bowl, whip egg whites until
foamy. Add sugar gradually, and
continue to whip until stiff peaks form.
Spread meringue over pie, sealing the
edges at the crust.
4 Bake in preheated oven for 10
minutes, or until meringue is golden
brown.

! I prefer a graham cracker crust to lighten up this dessert. I also added ⅛ cup lemon juice to the lemon filling. My
family enjoys tart desserts. —Maggie McGuire
! The only modification I would suggest (that my mother does) is add some crushed walnuts to the crust batter.
Tip: Make the crust, as it is the best part of the recipe! —RACH8986

YOU SAID
! The lemon filling is FABULOUS! I made double the filling b/c my pregnant
self has been on a lemon kick for months now and it really hit the spot.
—TTV78
! Definitely a good lemon bar, but not lemony enough. I have made this
many times now and I add the zest of a full lemon to make them really
tangy. If you add more lemon juice they can get too runny. But you really
do need to cook this longer than 20 mins (at least 25-28). —KIMBERLYT1
! The filling looks to be thin and you’ll worry that it won’t set. It will. It’s
supposed to look like that. —SarahJo
Get the Best Zest
√ A Microplane grater is
the easiest way to get fine
zest. (And it’s way easier to
clean than a box grater!)
√ For larger pieces of
zest—for, say, cocktails or
candying—you can use a
vegetable peeler, a zester
(it usually has five small
holes), or a channel knife.
√ The best lemons for
juicing should have a thin
skin; thick-skinned
lemons are best for
zesting, however.

√ Scrub lemons before
zesting to remove any
food-grade wax from skin.
√ You want only the
colored part of the skin for
zest—that’s where the
flavor is. The white pith
is bitter.

PUT THE LID ON
CONTAINER
CHAOS
How many of us open the cupboard where we randomly
toss, stack, and wedge in our food-storage containers
and get a full-on Niagara Falls moment of tumbling plastic
tubs and lids rushing over our heads and scattering
all over the kitchen floor? Organizing those containers
once and for all seems to be the one thing we swear we’ll
do and somehow never get around to. But with these tips
you can kiss your container-storage problems goodbye.
GET A FREE YEAR! Mail in the RSVP card on page 14 NOW, or go to allrecipes.com/free.
1
SORT, MATCH, AND RECYCLE. Start by emptying your entire
cupboard of existing containers. On a counter or table, separate them
into tubs and lids, then sort by size. Match a lid to each container
and ditch the extras. Keep the containers designed to hold food, and
recycle any cottage-cheese and takeout containers (the plastic they’re
made from degrades more quickly, and you may be exposed to harmful
chemicals). Then get ruthless about recycling the rest: Do you really
need 50 Tupperware bowls? If they’re in good shape, consider donating
them to a shelter for people who will soon be starting over in a new
home. And those containers that have seen better days? Gone!
2
3
USE IT OR LOSE IT. Some
food-storage containers are
in constant rotation, while
others (pie carrier and deviledegg holder, we’re talkin’ to you!) are,
well, basically bench warmers. So why
keep them at the ready? Put them
in a separate cupboard or a higher
pantry shelf for the two or three
times a year you actually use them.
EVERYTHING IN ITS PLACE, EVERY TIME. Somehow
the food-storage-container drawer is the one place
in the kitchen we just can’t bear to keep straight. We
open the drawer, shove the lid in, cram the container
in, and walk away. But now that you’ve taken all this time
to organize it, keep it that way! And if you’re ever tempted to
start adding to the pile (a takeout container here, a yogurt
container there), resist, resist, and then resist again!

INVEST IN A MATCHED
SET OF CONTAINERS.
Now—when you have all those
tubs and lids in front of you—
might be the time to think about buying a
matched set of good-quality containers.
If you can afford them, they’ll pay you back
in efficiency (they’re easier to stack and
nest) and in the freshness of your food, as
the better a container is built, the better
it maintains edibles. Instead of plastic,
consider glass containers. They won’t
compromise the flavor of your food, and
you can throw them in the dishwasher!
Square containers, by the way, take up less
space than round ones do.
5
GET THE LID OUT! One of the
most economical ways to store your
lids is to place them in a resealable
food-storage bag. Just make sure to
keep them in size order, or even a Ziploc
bag can seem chaotic. If you’re more of the
filing type, install a shelf or drawer divider
(or several) to keep like lids with like. A
napkin holder or small dish-drying rack
can keep lids upright, while an inside-thecupboard-door hanging rack will allow you
to keep lids separate and a cinch to find.
6
RETHINK
YOUR
CUPBOARD
OR DRAWER
CHOICE. Maybe
the shallow cabinet
over your stove
isn’t the best place.
Ideally, the
cupboard will be
deep and wide
enough for you to
have several sizes
displayed without
having to reach way
in the back to find
the container you
need (remember
the Niagara Falls
effect). It should
also be within easy
reach when you
need it, and not
crammed with pots
and pans or other
kitchen tools. If
possible, dedicate
one space (even if
it’s simply one
shelf) to containers.
7
BRING OUT YOUR NESTING
INSTINCTS. Put all lids of similar
size together, and the containers as
well. Nest or stack them in quantities
small enough to be easy to reach in a
cupboard, but large enough to save room
in your storage space. In a drawer, stack
them almost to the top of the space.
8
BE A GROUPIE. As in, if
you have smallish containers
(the kind, say, you store mini
portions of leftovers in), use
one of your larger containers to group them
together. Put all the small lids in a foodstorage bag, nest the tiny containers, and
lock them together in one organized place
within the larger lidded bowl.
9
CONSIDER SHELF LIFE. A lot
of us don’t have the space to
devote an entire drawer or shelf to
food-storage containers. If you have
a wall shelf (or a freestanding shelf unit)
in your kitchen, pick up some attractive
matching storage boxes (in wicker or a
colorful durable material) and nest your
bowls and lids within them. You can have
them in plain sight and within reach.
10
SLIDE ’EM IN, PULL ’EM OUT, OR SPIN ’EM AROUND. If ever there was a
reason to install a sliding drawer in your kitchen cabinet, the storage of food containers
is a pretty good one. The pull-out drawer makes finding just what you need worlds
easier than grappling for a lid that’s behind another stack. Don’t want to commit to
the carpentry involved in installing a drawer or sliding wire basket? How about placing your
containers and lids in separate wicker baskets or on a large rimmed baking sheet on the shelf,
which you can easily slide in and out? A turntable or lazy Susan can also work.

12 minutes.
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice wine
1 tablespoon brown sugar
½ teaspoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root

it with and without flour, and it works either way. —Denver Dish
! This is a wonderful classic recipe! After reading some of the reviews I
followed their advice and put the seasonings and flour in a bag to coat the
chicken. I used all Marsala wine for the sauce and doubled the amount of
mushrooms. I removed the chicken from the pan while making the sauce and
added a little half-and-half to make it creamy—it turned out great. —Jillian

EGG-CELLENT IDEAS FOR
EASTER
EGGS
You and the kids hard-boiled and colored way too many eggs.
Now what? Here are some unusual ideas for using them
up around the holidays (or any other time!), as well as tips on
avoiding gray yolks, understanding egg labels, and more.
BRACIOLE
ALLRECIPES.COM/CLASSIC-BRACIOLE
“An old family recipe for ‘brazzoles.’
These beef and pork roll-ups are made
with a filling of salami, hard-boiled eggs,
garlic, parsley, and cheese. Use your
judgment on the amounts of parsley,
garlic, and grated cheese—you want to
flavor them, but not overpower with one
particular flavor. The amounts of
ingredients always vary according to the
size of the braciola meat.” — Bon Appetit
FROM AR KITCHEN
We had a lot of alterations on this one,
starting with scaling it back to serve 6, and
using only beef cutlets, not beef and pork.
Here are the details:
! 2 pounds beef round (about 6 pieces)
! 6 ounces Genoa salami, thinly sliced
(about 12 slices)
! 5 hard-cooked eggs, sliced
! ½ cup chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley
! 4 cloves garlic, minced
! ¾ cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese
! 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
! 3 cups prepared marinara sauce
! We cut the cooking time in the sauce from
2 hours to 1 hour.

6 hard-cooked eggs, sliced
Italian flat-leaf parsley, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
Photos: Peter Ardito. Food styling: Michael Pedersen. Prop styling: Don Purple.
1 cup Pecorino Romano cheese, grated
kitchen twine
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
6 cups spaghetti sauce, or as desired (or search for Bon
Appetit’s recipe for Meat Gravy)
1 Place pork between two sheets of heavy plastic (resealable
freezer bags work well) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound
the pork with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of
⅛ inch (⅓ cm). Pound beef to the same thickness.
2 Lay the meats out on a work surface with the short side facing
you and top them with layers of salami, eggs, parsley, minced
garlic, and Pecorino Romano cheese.
3 Roll up the meats to form short, fat rolls with a lot of stuffing;
secure them with twine. Roll them tightly to prevent the stuffing
from escaping. Refrigerate until your pasta sauce is simmering
and you’re ready to brown the meat.
4 Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Panfry the
rolls on each side until brown, about 5 minutes per side. (Cook
the braciole in batches if they won’t all fit in the skillet.)
5 Bring spaghetti sauce to a simmer over low heat and cook
braciole in the sauce until tender, about 2 hours.

! All I can say is WOW!!!!! Fabulous dish. Truly authentic

(personal preference) and added fresh basil to the filling.
Also, I only cooked it in the sauce about 20 minutes. The

If mustard is desired it looks beautiful
over this.
YOU SAID
! Personally, I get 8 Scotch eggs
from 2 pounds of pork sausage. I
usually use panko bread crumbs
as they get so crunchy and delish.
You don’t need 4 beaten eggs to
coat them—2 are ample. I love
them with Branston pickle,
husband has his with spicy
mustard. —Caroline C
! I baked (325 degrees for 45
min) instead of frying and they
turned out great. I served them
with hollandaise sauce and family
loved it. Not a recipe to make on a
monthly basis but good.
—ABC Cook
! Husband loves these! He called
me brilliant for making them!
I basked in his adoration for a
moment before confessing that
I actually found this recipe on
Allrecipes.com. Thanks!

The genealogist

Food labels have gotten complicated, and
eggs are no exception—your choices involve
size, grade, color, conventional or organic, and
animal-treatment issues. Here, a guide to
cracking the code, with information from the
U.S. Department of Agriculture and the
Humane Society of the United States.

Minimum Weight Per Dozen

GRADE The U.S. Department of Agriculture
(USDA) grade is determined by the interior
quality of the egg and the appearance and
condition of the eggshell. Eggs of any quality
grade may differ in weight (size).
U.S. Grade AA eggs have whites that are
thick and firm; yolks that are high, round, and
practically free from defects; and clean,
unbroken shells. Grade AA and Grade A eggs
are best for frying and poaching, where
appearance is important. U.S. Grade A eggs
have characteristics of Grade AA eggs except
that the whites are “reasonably” firm. This is
the quality most often sold in stores.
COLOR A hen’s breed determines its egg
color: White hens usually lay white eggs, and
hens with darker feathers lay brown eggs.
But there’s no difference in flavor.
USDA CERTIFIED ORGANIC eggs come from
hens that are given no antibiotics or growth
hormones (see Hormone-free, below) and are
fed an organic, all-vegetarian diet, also free
of antibiotics. The birds are uncaged inside
barns or warehouses and are required to
have outdoor access (although enforcement
of that requirement has been lax).
ARTICHOKE AND EGG SPREAD

“Eat with crackers. Friends will think you are good at

— The genealogist cook
FROM AR KITCHEN
! We tried this on celery
sticks, and it would also be
good as a sandwich spread.
! Was even better after
refrigerating 1 or 2 hours, for
flavors to develop.
1 (14 ounce) can artichoke
hearts, drained and chopped
½ cup mayonnaise
½ cup sour cream
HORMONE-FREE OR “NO HORMONES
ADDED” Because the USDA categorically bans
the use of hormones in raising poultry, all eggs
are free of hormones, whether they are
organic or conventional.
3 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
½ teaspoon curry powder, or to

DUTCH PICKLED
BEETS AND EGGS
ALLRECIPES.COM/PICKLED-EGGS
“A gift from the Amish.” — Cindy
FROM AR KITCHEN
! Original recipe called for canned
whole pickled beets, but we think
Cindy meant plain canned beets.
Pickled beets typically come in
jars.
! We let eggs sit 12 to 15 minutes
in hot water.
8 eggs (already hard-boiled, or
follow procedure in step 1)
2 (15 ounce) cans whole pickled
beets, juice reserved
1 onion, chopped
1 cup white sugar
¾ cup cider vinegar
½ teaspoon salt
1 pinch black pepper
2 bay leaves
12 whole cloves
1 Place eggs in saucepan and cover with
water. Bring to a boil. Cover, remove
from heat, and let eggs sit in hot water
for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot
water, cool, and peel.
2 Place beets, onion, and peeled eggs in
a non-reactive glass or plastic container.
Set aside.
3 In a medium-size, non-reactive
saucepan, combine sugar, 1 cup reserved
beet juice, vinegar, salt, pepper, bay
leaves, and cloves. Bring to a boil, lower
heat, and simmer 5 minutes.
4 Pour hot liquid over beets and eggs.
Cover, and refrigerate 48 hours before
using.
YOU SAID
! Don’t forget to stir or shake once
or twice a day for even color. 48 hrs
is a minimum, will usually take four
days to be colored through.
—ValerieB333
! For my taste, a bit too sweet.
However, if you put some Tabasco on
these, the sweet/hot flavor is very,
very good. —NWOD
! Instead of canned pickled beets, I
use fresh. I peel, slice, and boil them
until tender (maybe 30 or 40
minutes), then proceed with the
recipe. They turn out just fine. This is
a super recipe. —fpu

4 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT BOILING AN EGG
1
Common wisdom has it that hardboiled eggs should not, in fact, be
boiled. The boiling water can cause the
shell to crack, and the high
temperature can make for rubbery
eggs. They should be “hard-cooked”
instead. Bring water to a boil, then
reduce heat to a bubble-less simmer
(between 180 and 190 degrees F),
gently add eggs, and cook for 10 to 15
minutes. Lift out eggs and transfer to a
bowl of ice and cold water. In Allrecipe
.com’s video on how to hard-boil an
egg (allrecipes.com/boil-egg-video),
the eggs are in the pot as the water
comes to a boil, but then the heat is
turned off completely.
2
If the shells tend to stick to your
eggs when you hard-cook them,
they might actually be too fresh. Try
using eggs that have been in your
fridge for several days. A tip from the
video: Lightly cracking the shell before
putting a hot egg in an ice water bath
will also make it easy to peel.
3
Why do the yolks of hard-cooked
eggs sometimes get an ugly
greenish-gray patina? That’s ferrous
sulfide, formed by a chemical reaction
between the sulfur in the egg white
and the iron in the yolk. It’s harmless,
but you can minimize it by reducing
cooking time to the bare minimum and
by submerging eggs in cold water or
an ice bath right out of the pot.
4
If the Easter Bunny visits your
house and you plan on eating his
hard-cooked eggs, ask him to hide
them within two hours of the hunt.
They could go bad if left out longer at
room temperature. Hard-cooked eggs
keep in the fridge for about a week.

YOU SAID
! I cut the mayo half and half with
sour cream, adding just enough to
hold the salad together and make it
creamy. I gave it a squeeze of lemon
and a few shakes of dill. Nutritious,
fresh, light, delicious and “shrimple.” (I
couldn’t help myself...) —Naples34102
! Really great recipe. I took other
users’ ideas and cut the shrimp into
smaller pieces and dried the shrimp
well before mixing. —BP3
! I served it on a bed of salad
greens, but it would make a great
appetizer scooped onto cucumber
rounds or crackers. —RCKim

SWEDISH BUTTER COOKIES ALLRECIPES.COM/BUTTER-COOKIES
“Made with hard-boiled egg
yolks to add a twist of body and
flavor to the usual cookie press
spritz!” —CECILIAMORISON
FROM AR KITCHEN
! 7 minutes was plenty of baking
time at 400 degrees.
! Yield depends on shape of
cookies.
8 eggs (already hard-boiled, or
follow procedure in step 1 for
cooking)
2 cups salted butter, softened
28 allrecipes.com
1 cup white sugar
1¼ teaspoons almond extract
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 Place the eggs into a saucepan with
enough water to cover by 1 inch. Cover
the saucepan, and bring the water to a
boil over high heat. Once the water is
boiling, remove from the heat and let the
eggs stand in the hot water for 15
minutes. Pour out the hot water; cool the
eggs under cold running water.
2 Peel eggs; separate yolks from whites.
Sieve or finely grate yolks. Reserve
whites for another use.
3 Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a
baking sheet with parchment paper.
4 Beat the butter and sugar with an
electric mixer in a large bowl until
smooth. Beat in the egg yolks and the
almond extract. Slowly mix in the flour,
just until incorporated. Use a spritz-style
cookie maker to press cookies onto
prepared baking sheet.
5 Bake in the preheated oven just until
the edges begin to brown, 8 to 10
minutes.
YOU SAID
! This is a simple recipe with
delicious results. I opted to finish
each off with a chocolate drop.
