Pinterest for the Win! Well then again, maybe not. I really wanted to make these awesome looking brownies for Easter. They were supposed to look like carrots in a garden. Strawberries dressed in orange coloured white chocolate to resemble the carrots. So cute!
Mine did not turn out quite like that. I did not have any coconut oil but I thought, what the heck do I need oil for? Well that was my mistake. I am thinking that the oil must help keep the white chocolate smooth. Because as soon as I added the Orange food color it clumped up. So maybe that is why they said add coconut oil. So my carrots are white.

Nailed it! Kinda. I wish I could have figured out the food coloring to make them orange.
Another fun part of Easter. Probably the kids favorite part, presents! I try to think of things that are not candy, because they already get candy in their eggs. Here is what I included this year in Joy and Deano’s baskets. Next year Teddy will get one too.
I love dyeing eggs. It is such a fun activity. Especially on days as beautiful as today where we can do it outside so I don’t fret about dye water getting everywhere. Continue reading “Easter Celebrations – Part 2 – Egg Dyeing”
I love Easter. As a Christian, it is the most important day of the year. I love all the fun things that come with Easter celebrations. I love hiding eggs for the my kids, dying Easter eggs, the fun crafts that you can do to celebrate the holiday. Today we decided to do our egg hunt with the kids. We wanted to make sure that Sunday was all about the true meaning of Easter, Jesus.
Earlier this week Joy and I made Easter eggs out construction paper and crayons and put them up on our front door. Two days ago we boiled the eggs we will dye later. So the next fun thing is to hunt for eggs.
Have you ever wondered the perfect way to hard boil an egg? I have. With Easter right around the corner, and my 4 year old Joy dying to dye eggs, I needed to find the best way. I had seen some time ago that you could actually not boil a hard-boiled egg and get the same result by placing it in the oven. So I wanted to try this out. I Google searched for the answer. Lots of results. But one thing my dear old husband always says is to look for the most reviews and the highest stars. That led me to two recipes.
