My Stepmother is an Alien
Seriously, I just Googled your description with "taking eggs out of boiling water with her bare hands" and it was the first hit. C'mon, man!
Apparently your Googling is better than mine! I tried typing taking boiling eggs out of water prior to posting and got a bunch of cooking advice. When I finally posted I changed a few words and apparently you got a hit (the only hit) from it.
Thanks for the find in any case.
Now to buy a copy!
