It's best to use old eggs for hard boiling. The reason the store bought are easier to peel is because they having been sitting in a fridge for who knows how long . I just made some and used the eggs we had had in there for about a month and they were really easy to peel.

I am like a pp that said she needs her coffee sweet to drink it though. I really enjoy the taste of coffee, I'm not someone that just drinks it for the caffeine (though that is a big plus LOL). I remember drinking another sweetener last time I was dieting that was good, I need to look up the website and figure out which one it was. It was a sample from a sugar company.
I love coffee too..I can drink it decaf, it's all about the flavor. I went from using 6 big spoonfuls of sugar in a pot of coffee when this group started to 3 packets stevia. I'm so proud of myself . I still use regular milk though. I cut out soda a couple months ago too and now it doesn't even taste that good to me. I didn't think I'd ever be able to do that!
