Easter Ideas

Fabric Carrot Candy Holders

Kimberly made these cute fabric carrot candy holders last year for everyone at Easter.  She said she had a pattern for them, but I found a tutorial that would work for the fabric cone shape.  Here is the link:

To finish the carrot candy cones, slit the top of the fabric down to where you want to tie off your carrot.  Insert desired candy into cone and tie off with ribbon.  So cute! 

Oven Baked Hard Cooked Eggs

At Easter, a friend put on Facebook that she cooked her eggs in the oven.  I had never heard of it, but thought it sounded great to be able to cook them for a certain amount of time and not have to watch for the water to boil on the stove and then time the cooking process.  The oven-baked method worked wonderfully! 

Here's how you do it:

Place desired amount of uncooked eggs directly on rack in the oven (rack should be in the center).  Place cookie sheet or foil on bottom oven rack - just in case one cracks or has a small, unseen crack. Set oven to bake and 325 degrees.  Bake for 30 minutes.  After baking, place eggs in ice water.  Allow to cool for a few minutes then peel.  At that point you can either continue to cool them in the water, cool then in the water, or eat them!

Deviled Egg Chicks
I've made a variation of these before, for one of my children's elementary classes several years ago.  They were adorable!  These are too!  It's a Taste of Home recipe found at this link -

Have a blessed Easter, everyone!
