What are your favorite Easter memories? Believe it or not, for me it was getting an Easter dress to wear to church when I was young. I believe this went on until I was at least 13, for that reason I always wanted to have a girl so I could play dress-up.

Fast forward to today my joy for Easter has not only shifted to understanding the meaning of Easter but also my love for Easter eggs has grown. I recently took a deeper dive To find out what Easter eggs symbolize. According to history.com “The egg, an ancient symbol of new life, has been associated with pagan festivals celebrating spring. From a Christian perspective, Easter eggs are said to represent Jesus’ emergence from the tomb and resurrection. Decorating eggs for Easter is a tradition that dates back to at least the 13th century, according to some sources. One explanation for this custom is that eggs were formerly a forbidden food during the Lenten season, so people would paint and decorate them to mark the end of the period of penance and fasting, then eat them on Easter as a celebration.” (Source: History.com) Nowadays there are so many creative ways to decorate Easter eggs it is amazing. One of my favorites is the chinoiserie print.

Another design that’s been around for a few years is the marble design.

Easy DIY Candy Shine Easter Eggs

This year I tried Easy DIY Candy Shine Easter Eggs. I recommend dying the eggs a few days in advance and adding the gloss over drinks with family or it can be done with the kiddos too. The Candy Shine Easter Eggs were super easy and I love the beautiful shine effect as they were displayed on my dining table. We plan on starting an annual Egg hunt with Chubbs this year. We did this with our late Bane and he found all the eggs every time. Are you looking for a sustainable way to use all your leftover eggs?  Check on my blog on Deviled Eggs another yummy treat. I hope you all have a wonderful Easter.

Belle’s Loaded Deviled Eggs

Belle’s Loaded Deviled Eggs

Easter is fastly approaching and I’m beginning to think about all the leftover eggs we will all have from all of the Easter Egg Hunters. I love to use the leftover eggs for my famous “Belle’s Loaded Deviled Eggs”. 

These are sure to be a crowd-pleaser and with the eggs already boiled this cuts the prep time down to 10 minutes. These eggs can be stored for up to 3 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator. I love to top mine with paprika…I mean I don’t even consider them deviled eggs unless they have paprika on them. What about you?
