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!

So I have been best friends with this girl for six years, after Halloween she has not called me, answered my calls, or come over to my house (we live close to each other and go over to our houses all the time). I don't know why she hasn't talked to me and shes the type of person if you did something to make her mad she would tell you.  I don't want to call her (it may seem needy) but I have a bunch of her stuff at my house and I really just don't want them there anymore but I don't want to call her have a huge fight and avoid each other ( which would be really hard) forever.

This is really true and sad... Many teens, have a problem with this because of society. This post helps. I have had problem with suicide and bullying. Ive felt like I should just end it because I have no point to be here because I'm being told I'm worthless, to fat, to dumb, not pretty enough, all tons of lies and i got to the point that i believe them. I'm an outsider in my school. It fells like a lot of people leave me.  I fell pain a lot. and There is bullying going on in my school. Life fell mean less a lot. I have to remind myself that I do have a point and that people do love me.  I know know I do have a reason to live and so do you guys so  Don't ruin you're life. You're to young.  You're to worthy. The bully are just jealous of you. Don't self harm tonight. Don't comment suicide. You all are worth A lot I promise. People love you. Don't worry about hatters. The hatter are gonna hate but lovers are there to help you trough the pain and if you did comment suicide imagine how they'd fell. Thanks for posting this it really helped me and really could've saved a life:) :) Bullies are just having problems themselves remember that!!!! Stay strong everyone!!!

It feels like no one cares about me at school. I really can't trust anybody either. I started to quit eating at home and at school only eating snacks every now and then. I am also losing Weight. I used to get called fat and i wasn't even fat. I have been abused by people who say my butt is smexy and huge and it's not. I have even been slapped on by them. I tell my mom and dad that i've been called fat and my dad ignore's me and continues whatever he's doing. I'm getting to the point again where i'm losing my temper and emotions right on the spot. I can't be bipolar cause it has to run in the family and my mom says i don't have it. People get mad at me when i don't laugh at their jokes when they expect me too cause i really don't listen. But when i say something funny they roll their eyes and give me mean looks. I don't even want to be around people that much. I just want to be outside in the fresh air during school but it's high school so their's no outside time. I also fake smile's at people to make them happy. But i just hurt on the inside. I just want advice.  Hi there. I'm sure you have people who care about you at school, just sometimes it's hard to see it. Dear, you have to eat. I assure you, you're not fat. (smexy isn't necessarily a bad thing)  You have to understand, that people say things just because they can, or to make themselves feel better. Never give them that opportunity, just ignore them. When you're about to lose your temper, think of something that makes you really happy.  If you need someone to talk to, you have your guidance consular, trust me I have social anxiety, and reallly hate talking about my problems, I find it easier for me, to message them. It's their job to listen, but not only that, they really care for all of their students. Talking helps, believe me.

Things happen for a reason, normally to make others stronger. Trust me, nothing is worth taking your own life. If you need to talk I'm here, however I would suggest you talking to an adult.  Friends come and go. you have family, and if not, you have me, Trust me, it's not worth it. please, don't.
