How to Hard Boil the Perfect Egg
Hard boiling eggs may be second-nature to some, but many of us struggle to get it right. Always end up with the perfect egg, and take a few hints from our guides below. This year, the first step to the ultimate Easter egg will also be the easiest.
Coloring Easter Eggs
The traditional way of coloring Easter eggs is to take hard boiled eggs and dip them in various dyes. While we have a blast every year dip-dying, there are so many fun ways to color your eggs! Try turning Dad’s old ties into an amazing Easter decorating tool, using a Sharpie to doodle on your eggs, or using Jell-O to tint them.
