how to cook perfect hard boiled eggs

i LOVE hard boiled eggs. they are a great portable snack and go well with breakfast, lunch or dinner!

there are a million and one “no-fail” ways to prepare them, but i’m confident that mine (steaming rather than actually immersing in water) will truly produce the best hard cooked eggs you could imagine with creamy golden yolks and easy to peel shells… mmmmmm!
