Steam Eggs In The Rice Cooker


Hard boiled eggs are a easy snack to make. Eggs are a source of protein. My daughter discovered that she likes to eat hard boiled eggs after one Easter egg hunt. She now asks for me to make them. I used to use a regular pot and boil them.

Until I used my rice cooker to steam them. I have the Aroma Rice Cooker with a steam setting. It comes with that white tray that sits snugly on top. You can steam veggies in there as well.

For my first time, I put 5 eggs on top. In the bottom part, I used two cups of water. Close the top. Press the steam setting twice. When I press my steam setting it reads 5 minutes. Overall, I steamed them for 10 minutes. 

After they are finished you can put them in a ice bath for a few minutes before you peel them. Peeling is easy and clean. Usually if I boil the eggs traditionally. they crack on me or it becomes a mess to peel. 

This is now my favorite way to cook hard boiled eggs. 

Have you ever tried to steam eggs?

Playskool Friends My Little Pony

Playskool Friends My Little Pony Friendship Bus

Playskool Friends My Little Pony toys are really cute. My daughter was so excited we got this toy sample from Crowdtap. Crowdtap is a fun website where you can share your opinions for a chance to win prizes and samples. You do not need to have a blog to join.

Back to this cute Rainbow Dash Friendship Bus. The door opens easily with a push of a button. The bus fits 3 ponies. It is made for ages 18 months and up. My daughter, Nia, is 3 years old and loves it. And remember My Little Pony can be for boys too. My son thinks they are adorable. He probably won't admit to that in public. 

Rainbow Dash and Bumblesweet

You can also find two packs in the stores. They are sold at Target and Toys R Us. This pack contained Rainbow Dash and Bumblesweet. As a child, I adored My Little Pony Toys. They were a different style back then but these would have been on my wish list.

Nia playing with the Playskool Friends MLP bus

Nia has decided to put as many toys inside her bus. Sometimes she gets upset if she can't fit her play doh inside along with the ponies.

There is a castle that goes along with these toys. She has already seen it on YouTube and wants me to get it. 

Isn't fun to see toys you played with as a kid come full circle? Some things, like My Little Pony will always be a classic. A warm fuzzy memory in your heart. 

Playskool Friends My Little Pony

Who am I kidding? I want to play with all of these new toys.
