Decorating eggs is an Easter rite of passage for me and my sister. We’re not doing it “for the kids” since neither of us have any (yet); we just love sketching, coloring and creating our own designs. If you use real eggs like we do, there’s a secondary benefit: Once you’re done admiring your tie-dyed handiwork, you can eat your art (well, you know, the inside part.)

At best, hard-boiled eggs are tender and delicious; at worst, they’re overcooked and rubbery with a greenish tint. Whether you’re making egg salad or deviled eggs this Easter, try this simple technique to get hard-boiled eggs that are delicious every time.
