I am not the perfect mom. I saw some really cool ideas on doing Easter Eggs and thought, I can do that. I some how think I’m Martha Stewart. Apparently without having an assistant or crew behind me, I just can’t do fancy. I need to keep it simple. I love simple easy to do recipes. If I have several steps to follow, I won’t read it and will wing it as you will see…and it usually doesn’t end well.
I decided to make deviled eggs. But not just deviled eggs, I had to make Chick looking Deviled eggs.
I followed the directions here on how to boil eggs. This worked beautifully.
I would suggest peeling the eggs, shortly after boiling them. I peeled one, to make sure they were boiled completely before cooling them and they were. I put them back into the carton and fridge and colored the eggs with the kids in the afternoon.
I used this idea on how to make them look cool. Mine did not look cool. I didn’t read the instructions, typical of me. I have now read the instructions and see what I did wrong. Apparently, just cracking the shell and coloring eggs the way that is fun for kids, is not going to get the same effect, pouring dye into thema nd rubbing them in a bag was what we were suppose to do. We had spotty color on the eggs, like 4 out of 18 had color on them….no biggie, kids had fun.
My eggs, did not look like how I pictured they would.
Instead, they looked like this:
Not horrible, still edible. Just not as colorful and wow factor. There is always next year.
When I tried to get the yolk out, I cut the eggs, and then it wasn’t far enough to get the yolk out, so then I tore the egg. So I started cutting them in half to get the yolk out.
While they look like they were baby chicks that were ran over, they were still delicious. Here is my recipe for deviled eggs.
