New ways.

I recently saw a few neat Easter egg ideas from friends posts and wanted to give them a try. Something new. The first one was to bake the eggs. I placed them in a muffin tin for 30 mins. at 325˚, then in an ice bath for 10 mins. My baked eggs were done before the hard-boiling ones on the stove. (I wasn’t intentionally competing with my hubby.) We had 2 dozen dye-ready eggs in 40 mins. Not bad. Here’s my friend Annette’s link from her baked eggs experiment.  🙂


The other new option was dying eggs with Cool Whip and food coloring.  Lots of fun. After we swirled the eggs in the  Cool Whip and food coloring combo, we let them dry for about 15 mins. before wiping them down with a paper towel.  Thanks for the tip, Linda.


I forgot to take a close up of the finished eggs, but I did get a shot of them in the background of the one water-colored egg I painted.  Another idea from a friend.  IMG_0799
