Make the PERFECT Hard Boiled Egg EASILY
“I mastered the perfect hardboiled egg in June of 2017 when a friend bought me the Dash Go Rapid Egg Cooker. Still going strong. Just made 24 perfectly hard boiled eggs in under 25 with no stress, no mess and peeled every single one without taking one ounce of egg with the shell. Just had to share because I love this thing so much, I had to share!” ~Jen Levinson

This is an incredible way to get your kids involved in doing good. Lisa Cohen is not only a geriatric nurse but the Executive Director of a large assisted living and memory care community in Camarillo. Since they have been on a “shelter in place” order for the last 2 1/2 weeks, the residents are very very lonely. Let’s cheer them up! Have your children write letters and/or draw a picture.
