Hard Boiled Eggs Baked in the Oven

If you like hard boiled eggs, you've got to try eggs baked in the oven. They are even better!

  • First, place eggs in a muffin tin.
  • Next, preheat oven to 325 degrees. Once preheated, place eggs in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.

DIY Grapefruit and Rosemary Candle


Candles make a great holiday gift for everyone. They can be used to quickly freshen a home and their lighting can set a nice ambiance for any sort of gathering. Instead of spending too much money and stressing about what to get everyone, consider gifting a DIY candle this holiday season.

What You'll Need:
  • Soy Wax (It's non-toxic, and is water soluble, which makes for a much easier clean up!)
  • Thrifted Saucepan (A double boiler can be used, as well, but a thrifted saucepan is a great alternative because you don't have to worry about messing up one of your good pans, and they are very inexpensive!)
  • Wax Paper
  • Soy Wax Flakes
  • Lead-Free Wicks
  • Rosemary Essential Oil
  • Grapefruit Essential Oil
  • Wooden Dowel (Or any other item you'd like to use for stirring!)
  • Pencils
  • Metal Vessels or Tea Cups
  • Ribbon
  • Sprigs of Rosemary (optional)

Lay out some wax paper on counters for easiest clean up!

Measure out your wax flakes, about double the volume of the candle vessel you're using.

Heat the wax on low, stirring frequently until melted, and remove the pan from the heat.
