Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs | Inspiration KitchenYou guys…I have so much to tell you – but first, I want you to meet sweet, baby Georgia!

Georgia | Kristi Kaiser PhotographyIf you love baby horses (especially ones with blue eyes), you will love this photo shoot!

(p.s. If you love her as much as I do, we’d love it if you’d leave a shout-out on her page and share it!)

Ok, on to the 2nd order of business.  I need your help.  Tell me…, should I do the 365 Project?

Project 365 Jamaica | Kristi Kaiser PhotographyI’d love your opinion.  Do I need another project in my life?  Can I find 365 photos, one to shoot of the week?

So, why would I even consider such a daunting task?  (I’m a glutton for punishment, maybe?)  🙂

  Excellent question!  Well, because …

  1. I am loving the photography and editing process
  2. I want to get better and improve my photography skills
  3. I want to shoot something other than food (shock of nations, right?)  🙂
  4. it holds me accountable and committed to doing something I love
  5. why not?

So help me dear friends…  Yes?   No?   Thoughts?   = 365 Project Challenge?

Ok, let’s get on to cooking the perfect egg, which you probably all know how to do.  But since I can’t ever seem to remember, the bottom of this post is for me.  🙂

Hopefully one of you will find it useful too!

p.s.  My favorite eggs to use are Egglands Best, but any eggs will do. Do you have a favorite brand?

Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs


  • Fresh eggs are way harder to peel
  • If you get gray around the yolk, it’s because the egg is over-cooked

Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs
Get perfect hard-boiled eggs every time. A high protein treat for appetizers, breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks!
  • 6 to 12 eggs
  1. Place eggs in a large saucepan. Do not overcrowd them! Cover eggs with cool water by 1 inch. Slowly bring water to a boil over medium heat. When water reaches a boil, cover saucepan and remove from heat. Let stand 12 minutes.
  2. Transfer eggs to a colander and place under cool running water to stop the cooking.
  3. Eggs can be peeled and served immediately.
Cooking eggs on medium heat until boiling will take 15-20 minutes. Then, let the eggs stand covered for 12 additional minutes after removing from heat.

    Georgia is so beautiful, and so are those photos! You did a great job, and the cat is so pretty, too. 🙂 You love projects, and that photo a day sounds like the perfect way to tap even further into your photography. Go for it! I don’t know how many hard boiled eggs I’ve over boiled in my life, but it’s a lot — they’re so chalky when they’re over done. 🙁 Great how-to on getting them just right. 🙂

      Thanks Marcie! I’m really proud of Georgia’s photos – and Jammies (the cat) is my baby, so it’s hard for me to not catch him at the perfect moment since I’m focused on him all the time. He doesn’t make a move without me knowing it! Including posing! 🙂

      Consuelo – I’d ask you to join me on the photography challenge, but your photos are already amazing! And, thanks for the compliments on Jamaica…he is my baby. 🙂 I capture him every single second I can. 🙂

    Hello Kristi!

    Wow – I’ve never seen a horse as distinctive looking as Georgia and your photos of her are lovely. It must have been fun to spend the day with her. Did you take her home?? And of course, Jamaica looks so sweet. I love your challenge, especially your reasons for taking it on and YES you should go for it. You’re amazing!
