To Dye For

Time to dye eggs!

Last night we embraced our inner Easter Bunny and dyed a dozen for Bob's family's Easter celebration. Food coloring + 1 teaspoon vinegar + 3/4 cup hot water is all you need. Oh yeah, and eggs! There are lots of kits out there with dissolving tablets, but they never seem to give as brilliant a color as you can get mixing food coloring together. 

In addition to dipping the eggs to build the color up, we also experimented with applying drops of food coloring right on the egg and letting the color bleed once underwater. That gave us the look you can see in the red and blue eggs below.
I'll leave you by linking to allrecipes.com's Top 20 Deviled Egg recipes - get creative with what you are bringing to the pot luck, picnic or party!

Enjoy your Easter Sunday!
