The "cool the eggs with really cold [faucet] water" does not work in many southern parts of the U.S. -- especially in the summer. It's extra work for sure, but while the eggs are boiling, I make two water baths w ice in large bowls.

They were not cooked at all. I turn to Allrecipes whenever I have a cooking question.
