Boiling eggs is the first and important step to decorating Easter Eggs.

Boiling eggs is very easy to do and the best part is that they are totally portable and can be eaten on the go. Eggs are an excellent source of protein and aren't limited to being eaten at just breakfast time. Eggs are considered a "super food" Eggs contain multiple nutrients and are just a little over 70 calories each. Although eggs have been labeled high in cholesterol studies show there are few to no adverse affects to blood cholesterol levels when eggs are eaten in moderation. Now let's get to the fun stuff!

Boiling Eggs To Perfection

Boiling Eggs Instructions:

1)Fill a large pot with cold water and add a a teaspoon bit of salt.

2)Place cold eggs into the pot of cold water and begin to heat.

3)Bring the water to a slow rolling boil and keep the boil going for two minutes.TIP I always set the timer. If I don't set a timer, I always end up getting distracted and I over cook the eggs!

4)After bringing eggs to a boil, turn off the heat and leave the pan and eggs on the stove until the water is cool.

5) Dye the eggs

When you are ready to eat your boiled eggs or make them into a recipe dent or break the shell of the egg on the small end of the egg and begin to peel the egg.

Rinse the peeled egg to ensure all the shell has been removed. No one likes crunchy hard boiled eggs, deviled eggs or egg salad :0)

Now you know how to boil the perfect egg. Not only does it taste good, but it will peel nicely for you too! 

When you start to think about how you want to dye your eggs there are lots of different ways you can do this. 

There are plenty of directions out there on making natural egg dyes. There are also tutorials on how to use ´╗┐Koolade´╗┐ to dye Easter Eggs and there is always your store bought egg dye kits. 

We have all these eggs, but what now??
