Kidzworld Kitchen: Easter Eggs Galore

Mar 19, 2014

It’s the season for eggs and chocolate! Greet this fun spring holiday with some cute and unique recipe ideas. 

Devilled eggs are a classic snack that also make a great appetizer or breakfast. Give them a festive pastel facelift for the holidays with a bit of food coloring that will make a fun addition to any table.  Feel free to re-use this same idea with different colors for other occasions and sporting events.

The no-bake Easter nests are cute as a dessert, gift or can even be used as an imaginative place card at Easter dinner. Neatly write the names of dinner guests on slips of paper, tape a toothpick to the back and stick into the nests. Voila! Change them up and personalize by filling with your favorite candies, chocolates or even a marshmallow chick.

Pastel Devilled Eggies

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • ½ tsp dry mustard
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • Pinch of paprika (optional)
  • Assorted food colouring

Instructions:

  1. Place the eggs into a pot and cover with cold water and add a pinch of salt (Hint! Adding salt will make the eggs easier to peel later)

  3. Turn off the heat and leave on the hot stove element for another 10-15 minutes
  4. Remove the eggs into a bowl of cold water

  6. Gently cut each egg in half
  7. Scoop the yolks out and put into a mixing bowl and set aside

  9. Place halved eggs into the bowls of coloured water and let sit until they are the desired pastel colour
  10. Remove from the coloured water and place upside down on paper towel to dry
  11. Add the mayo, dry mustard, paprika and salt and pepper to the egg yolks and mix until smooth and creamy
  12. Spoon the yolk mixture back into the eggs
  13. Serve and enjoy!

I would say just talk to the guy an ask him, but I know you would be scared. But anyway, just take it slow. Talk to the guy, an try to be friends with him. If he shows any signs of him liking you.. For example: He likes looking at you, tries to make you laugh, or likes being around you.. then that's mostly a sign.
