Speaking of eggs, that is what comes to mind first when it comes to Easter foods.HOW TO HARD BOIL AN EGG:in a large sauce pan lay eggs in a single layer and cover with cold water.Bring eggs to a boil,turn off heat and cover the pan.Leave set in hot water for about 10 minutes.After 10 minutes run cold water over the eggs and remove to a bowl of ice water to chill.After eggs are cold peel and use in anyway you choose.Any other suggestions are welcome.

I just came across a Spanish deviled egg recipe so I will share that when I find where it was at.  If I can remember it had salsa in it.

Thank you for the great idea with the lasagna.  I have had a difficult time cutting down on my amounts in cooking without all of my family home.  This way I can make my regular lasagna recipe and put it in the loaf pans to freeze and then I'll have more meals for my husband and me.  Thanks again!

In Response to Re: Easter April 24th 2011:
Chocolate Bunny Ears!  Jelly Beans!  Who has room for an Easter dinner after the bunny? I think I am going to make Lasagna. Did that the first year after my husband and I started the year with a "diet".  The lasagna was a great reward and something that we had not had in a long while.  I had cut back on big pasta meals so it tasted all that much better. I now make lasagna in a rather strange way.  Here is another "Tip From Nikki" This is a perfect way to make lasagna for 2 or 1 with enough for another meal. Line up 3 loaf pans, line with aluminum foil then plastic wrap. Make your lasagna just the way you normally would but lay each noodle in the loaf pan.  1 noodle fits perfectly in the loaf pan. When you are done with all the noodles, sauce and cheese fold over the plastic wrap then fold over the aluminum foil. I omit the cheese on the top though, I add it just before baking. Pop each pan in the freezer.  When the lasagna is frozen remove it from the pan and place the frozen brick back in the freezer. When you get ready to heat up the lasagna unwrap and place back in the loaf pan and add the cheese to the top.  Heat until heated through and cheese is bubbly. Now there is no temptation to eat more than I should because lasagna is so gosh darn good.

Great idea Nikki.  The recipe I have been using for years for lasagna makes enough to feed a small army!  And even with "plan-overs" we would have to eat it every day LOL.

Congrats to Marie and her husband on all their years of wedded bliss.

Will try to find some of the recipes I have for Easter, just not quite ready for that yet.

In Response to Re: Easter April 24th 2011 : Hi Susan,thank you for the recipe,It reminds me of something my Mom used to make.She would twist the dough the same and put an egg wash on them and rolled them in sugar and nuts before baking.This is a great recipe with meaning for the Easter holiday.I have to look through some of her recipes and I will post them here also.She used to made a braided butter ring that was great,with maple frosting and chopped walnuts.Oh how I miss her,she was amazing.

Gale...

I know what you mean...I miss my Mom too!  I think of her all the time, but when the holidays come, it's very hard.  The braided butter ring sounds yummy!  It sounds like both our Moms loved to bake and cook...maybe that is where we get it from!!! lol

Susan:  Thank you for the recipe.  Sounds delicious. We always have everyone over for the holidays.  For Easter I always make lamb.  However, neither of my brothers like or will try lamb.  I always make a ham for them.  Usually make the same sides.  My brothers don't like new things, especially my younger brother.  He won't eat a lot of things.  Won't eat turkey,chicken, lamb and other things.  Usually have a cake and cookies for dessert.

In Response to Re: Easter April 24th 2011 : I always tell people that the correct term is "Hard cooked eggs" NOT "Hard Boiled".  Because you don't boil them.  Like you said bring to a boil and shut off the heat and cover. I have been making eggs like this almost forever, I saw Julia Child do it this way YEARS ago and have done it that way ever since. I do give a little extra time if the eggs are extra large or jumbo. Just 1 to 2 minutes more per size. Best thing...never a green ring around the yolk and the yolks are tender and the whites never get rubbery.

Nikki...

This is why I LOVE this site!

I call my eggs hard boiled eggs BUT this is how I make mine!  I cover my eggs in cold water and bring them to a boil and then I continue to boil them for about 12-14 minutes depending on the size of the eggs.  Then when finished, I run cold water on them for a few seconds and let them soak in cold water for about 10-15 minutes...then peel! 

I think it's cool how we all share our tips and recipes!   So much fun!

Posted by gale g


It's funny how you said about deviled egg recipes.  My nephew and neice loves my deviled eggs and everytime we get together, I am asked "Please Aunt Sue make your deviled eggs"!  It's so easy and this is how my Mom made them!

-Cut hard boiled eggs in half and remove the yolks (lengthwise)
-Take a fork and crumble the yolks and add the following until nice and smooth (kinda fluffy), not runny.  Add: Mayo, dill weed, yellow mustard and heavy cream.
-Fill the halves with the yolk filling and top with half of an olive (option)

Now I got another recipe for deviled eggs with crab meat...I must dig that one out.  when I find it, I will post it for you all!

Enjoy!

Mayo?  MAYO?!!!??? Surprised  Yell 

I would never, never put
~shudder~  MAYO  in a deviled egg.

The correct thing to use is Miracle Whip!

I think it's against the law to use mayo in  deviled eggs.

Nancy, Nancy, Nancy....

Mayo is #1, not Miracle Whip!  LOL  Miracle Whip is sweet and not as creamy, plus I bet Paula Deen would agree with me! lol

We should do a poll?!  Is it Mayo or is it Miracle Whip?

I think I WILL say more - lol lol lol
I buy just about equal amounts of mayo and Miracle Whip and use each in a particular way.
They're kinda' mustard and ketchup ... such very different things but both are used on some sandwiches.

So ........ Miracle Whip goes in a deviled egg.  Got that?

Mayo
