That would be me... And I have never had any problems with my way of making eggs. I just hate to have the green rimmed over cooked hard boiled eggs. And just like my fried eggs, I like them a bit softer.
I do let the water come to a FULL, rolling, rapid boil before taking off the heat and covering the pot to let the eggs "rest". And now that I think about it, I probably let them stay in the pot with the hot water longer than 15m... Sometimes it's until I get around to it with 4 kids running around!
My mom just called to tell me that Martha Stewart makes her eggs the same way... I don't know if I want to
: that she's knocking off my style. Haha!!
