No. 2 : Kitchen Smidgen
Add some crunch and a cradle for your eggs by placing them in a “scoop” corn chip. To keep the eggs from rocking and rolling on your platter, put a tiny spoonful of the egg stuffing on the platter before putting your eggs down.

No. 3 : Get Creative
There are lots of good ways to make boiled eggs, but this is my favorite, (easy) technique. Attributed to Julia Child, you add eggs to a pan and cover with cold water by an inch. Bring to a boil over high heat. Remove from the heat, cover with a lid and set aside for 15 minutes. Remove the eggs from the hot water and put in a bowl. Run cold water over the eggs and let them sit in the cold water until ready to peel.
No. 4 : Wine FIND of the Week
LIMA Vinho Verde
Portugal, About $13 at Whole Foods
Anytime is the perfect time for Vinho Verde. This one is special, made from a single varietal grape versus the more ordinary blends of traditional Portuguese grapes. Bright tasting with citrus flavors of lemon, lime and stone fruit. (Stone fruit is wine-speak for fruit like peaches, nectarines or apricots with a large pit or stone in the middle.) Super for appetizers like this one or your favorite salad or slaw.
