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)
  2. Cover the pot and bring to a gentle boil over high heat (about 10 minutes)
  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
  5. When the eggs are cool enough carefully peel the shells off
  6. Gently cut each egg in half
  7. Scoop the yolks out and put into a mixing bowl and set aside
  8. Fill small glass bowls half way with water and add a 3-4 drops of food colouring to each
  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!

As the previous person said, look online. There are very cute clothes available in bigger sizes! Also when you go shopping take a look in popular stores as well as less popular that might look as if they're for older people. Often they follow very similar trends but have bigger sizes!

I think you should go. It might be difficult but you never know. You might find something to talk about with his fiance and find a way to talk to her! Or you could be more social with other family. The only way to beat being unsocial in big groups is to put yourself into the situation and learn. You could actually have a great time :) Just relax, be yourself. Ask questions. People love to talk about themselves so ask lots. It'll keep conversation going and you'll learn about possible later conversation topics. Also smile and be friendly. Make small talk. Remember you're there to celebrate a happy time in someone's life. You might not like it but it's their big day, one of the biggest in their life. And your dad and sister are going so you could always stick around them if socializing doesn't work.

You can probably search for cute plus size clothes on the internet to find places that sell clothes that fit. As for style just wear what you feel comfy in.
