    How is the  residual taste of egg or egg shell with jello not disgusting?

      brownies usually have eggs in them….

      Assuming one washes the eggshell first, I’d be impressed with anybody who could detect the taste of egg white residue (which is mostly what was in contact with the shell) in flavored jello. It’s not like egg whites are known for their powerful flavor.

        Leave some egg white uncooked for ten minutes. The albumen smell is enough to knock you down.

      Don’t knock it ’til you try it.

    That’s really cool.  I wonder how it smells?

    You can’t fool me, these are the eggs of a chocolate Easter Bunny.

    You crucify a bunny and put it in a cave. The bunny lays these eggs and three days later it emerges once again into the light; if it sees its shadow, six more weeks of winter.

    Any other belief system is heresy.

If it does not see it’s shadow, but the Flying Spaghetti Monster descends and eats the bunny, then 1000 years of darkness.

    Cool!  Combine this with an Eggbot from Evil Mad Science Lab and we’ve got a winner!

    Does this cause a perfect circumference of crispy edges or a total lack of crispy edges? As an crispy edge fan I must know!

    Cool concept, but I’m too lazy to peel the eggshell from a dessert.

    At least with hard boiled eggs I can use water to assist in the shell’s removal.

  11. this is boring  ;)

    for a COOL treat, blow out the eggs, beat them into submission,color them black with americolor powder, and then proceed to the “refill with piping bag” stage. fill to approx. 80% . boil until egg is almost-but-not-quite firm, then fill up with ketchup. aaah, zombie eggs….  :D

    How about making cupcakes from your eggshell brownies? Once baked, peel them and cut them in half and then pipe a generous twist of frosting, tinted golden yellow, onto the wide side of your egg half. Sprinkle with a bit of red sugar to evoke paprika and a bit of green-colored coconut as your pretend parsley and TA-DA, deviled egg cupcakes!

    Yep, you go ahead and do that Martha. I’m gonna sit here and enjoy my beer!

    For a site that emphasizes education, I must object to the use of “a whole ‘nother.” There is no such word as “‘nother.” It should be either “another whole” or “a whole other.” The only other misused phrase that makes me crazier is “I could care less,” being used to mean “I couldn’t care less.” Proper English deserves to be treated with the  same respect as science, art and crafting. Yes, I am the grammar police. Someone has to be, these days.

      You should discover the joys of the semi-colon; it’s a lovely bit of punctuation.

      I’d like to introduce you to the idea of the weblog, or “blog” in the vernacular. You see, while you may have come to this site expecting “boing boing” to be some sort of academic journal, it is in fact a blog, and therefore uses grammatical rules closer to that of informal spoken English, a major hallmark of which is dropping unstressed syllables, traditionally represented by the apostrophe.

      For all your interest in syntax, you have missed a major semantic distinction between misuse of the English language and correct use of spoken idioms in writing.

    What a timesaver! So much less effort than a brownie pan.
