Egg memories, decorations and recipes for Easter

easterOne of my favorite holidays is coming up! While the main reason we celebrate Easter is the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, what else comes to mind when you mention Easter? The egg!

A favorite memory of Easter is being at my Grams and Gramps’ house. After church and lunch, our Uncles – along with the Easter bunny – would hide eggs and candies all across the house. I really believed that the Easter bunny would help them and sneak out before we saw him!

This Easter, the American Egg Board (AEB) is breathing new life into the all-things-Easter-egg. From hard-boiling to egg decorating and recipe ideas, AEB is giving the season’s cherished hallmark an update that’s both on-trend and accessible. That’s why AEB is partnering with HGTV design couple and parents of seven, Bob and Courtney Novogratz, who are known for their pairings of modern and classic.

There are many ways to enjoy eggs this Easter. One way is by mastering your hard-boiling technique, whether you prefer the oven or the stovetop, you can find three easy steps for hard-boiling from AEB.

A memorable method that I like is drawing on the egg with a white crayon before dying it. The Novogratz have some great decorating tips as well. I especially like their “Stick To It” decorated eggs using decorative tape. Check out all of their decorating ideas!

There are many other ways to enjoy eggs on Easter whether it’s for your breakfast before church or at lunch or supper later that day. Enjoy Easter or National Egg Salad Week recipe – visit IncredibleEgg.org/recipes to explore options or choose one of these that I’ll be trying:

Lastly, one of the most important reasons to share our love for eggs at Easter is to enjoy the benefits, such as nutrition, versatility, and affordability. There are a “Dozen Reasons to Love Eggs”!

How will you be celebrating the egg this Easter season?
