I am working so hard right now, with all is going on and I feel so helpless. I am trying so hard to look towards the future instead of looking backwards please help me stay positive.

Easter Eggs

This year we bought an egg dying kit with a wax crayon (1st time for us) and it was really neat! We all enjoyed being able to write on our eggs before dying them! Had a bit of trouble dying the eggs this year cause I immediately put them in the fridge to cool off before thinking....remember eggs don't dye very well cold.. lol

Braided Easter Egg Bread

Ingredients:
Oil
2 eggs
2/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons butter
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
2 tablespoons butter, melted
5 whole eggs, dyed if desired

Directions:
In a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, sugar, salt and yeast; stir well. Combine milk and 2 tbsp butter in a small saucepan; heat until milk is warm and butter is softened but not melted.


Gradually add the milk and butter to the flour mixture; stirring constantly. Add two eggs and 1/2 cup flour; beat well. Add the remaining 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.

Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn it over to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.

Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into two equal size rounds; cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Roll each round into a long roll about 36 inches long and 1 1/2 inches thick. Using the two long pieces of dough, form a loosely braided ring, leaving spaces for the five colored eggs. Seal the ends of the ring together and use your fingers to slide the eggs between the braids of dough.

Place loaf on a buttered baking sheet and cover loosely with a damp towel. Place loaf in a warm place and let rise until doubled in bulk, about 45 minutes. Brush risen loaf with melted butter. 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). 



Bake in preheated oven for 50 to 55 minutes, or until golden.

I found this awesome recipe at AllRecipes.com

Check this out! SO cool!

You have to watch this video! It shows you how to peel a hard boiled egg w/out actually peeling it!

Happy Easter

Just wanted to wish everyone a very
Blessed Easter!


and just cause I found them to be hilarious, I had to share the images below! ;)
