Easter Egg Ideas

There are many creative bloggers who have shared cute egg crafts and design online. I have pinned so many cute ideas over the years, and this spring it is time to try a few. First, about a month ago I started saving my egg shells when baking or scrambling eggs. Instead of cracking an egg in two, I hit the top of the egg with a spoon.

Lamb Spring Veggie Platter

 I enjoy food art. Spring and Easter are a perfect time to make cute food to celebrate. First I shared Tomato Tulips last month. Last week I shared 16 Ways to Make a Lamb Cake which really got me thinking about lambs and sheep.

Halloween Spider Eggs

Today’s treat is another fun food art for your Halloween gatherings – Deviled eggs decorated with black olive spiders.  Like last Monday’s recipe for Monster Eyes, use your favorite deviled egg recipe or mine.  If you want a gross monster look, add a few drops of green food coloring to the egg yolk filling. I’m not crazy about food coloring, and I stayed with the traditional yellow filling. I think it’s still fun. Cut your eggs in half lengthwise and fill with your deviled egg mixture. Read More
