Good Eggs.

Coloring Easter eggs = pure, simple, joy. And beautiful color.

I like the old school technique best. Boiling water, poured into coffee cups, add a dash of vinegar, and a shameful amount of food coloring. Let those sweet eggs sit for about 7 minutes, until they are perfectly vibrant.

My son wants them all to be blue, I’ll have to work on him :)

My favorite special effect is the rubber band trick. It is so easy and look how cool they turn out…

I am fascinated by the natural dye concept. Here’s what was used for the eggs below- blueberries, turmeric, paprika, raspberries, and coffee. Love that (Real Simple)!

Thought this was a cute, simple treat (BHG) to make with the kids. Marshmallows rolled in coconut…

But this year, we baked banana cream cupcakes with caramel frosting. A recipe from a friend, so delicious! Here’s how they turned out…

On that sweet note, Happy Easter to all.

p.s. Here’s how our eggs turned out! Something magically simple about that rubber band trick…
