The Easter Aftermath

Another Easter in the books. I have a special Easter recipe for you:
Easter Chaos:
Take 1- 3 year old girl (preferably an only child, or an only grandchild on one side of the family)
Add tons of chocolate (make sure you start this as early as possible)
Stir in some grandparents and an aunt
Throw in 3 Easter baskets full of toys and candy (this may sound like a lot, but it's key to the success of this recipe)
Toss in an Easter egg hunt
Sprinkle with just a dash more sugar
Combine all ingredients thoroughly and then attempt to place chaos in bed. Pray that chaos falls asleep before midnight. Enjoy!!!

Do not adjust your computer screen. We hosted Easter brunch at our house today. My mother brought these colored deviled eggs. The egg whites were dyed using about 7 drops of food coloring and adding a 1/2 cup of near boiling water into a cup. Soak the whites in the dye, remove, and fill. The filling is simply egg yolk, mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and pepper. The eggs were delicious but I have to admit it's a bit unsettling biting into a purple egg.

We had a great Easter with family this year. I hope everyone enjoyed the day as well.


  1. I might just have to try the white dieing trick. Deviled eggs are one of the things I'm always being asked to bring to parties.
