it is very simple to use natural dyes to color Easter eggs. This year I included turmeric and red cabbage to dye Easter eggs for the Easter egg hunt, for the Easter basket, and just to have it on the lunch table as a little gift that everyone can take home.
The process was very easy. First boiling eggs, then boiling cabbage, mixing turmeric to warm water, boiling red onion skin, and beet juice using canned beets. One thing that I learned from this whole process is to keep the eggs in the dyes for different periods to get different shades. Different greens, different blues, different reds. Mix different color eggs putting them in different dyes to get greens and deep Purple eggs. This was an easy family project that we all enjoyed, and our Easter eggs are unique, natural, and beautiful. Please watch the entire video on how to use nature dyes to color eggs👇
There are meals and side dishes that I remember as a child, and also loved to eat, but have forgotten to make them anymore. Soft boiled eggs are one that I used to have for breakfast, snacks, and a light meal when I wasn’t feeling well.
Easy to prepare, and easy to add more flavors to it with a dash of salt & pepper. Total preparation maybe 10 minutes after you drop the eggs in boiling water.

Saffron crocus, from the Iris family, is a beautiful flower that produces Stigma, as we also know as saffron. The threads of saffron added to chicken or red meat produces a beautiful orange color, and sweet fragrance that makes any dish absolutely beautiful, and delicious. Since harvesting saffron is a difficult process, a small amount as little as .025oz can cost around $10.00. I have watched my grandmother, and mom cook with saffron all my life, and when I was little loved the responsibility of preparing saffron, by crushing it, and pouring it into a dish or adding it later for its color to chicken or rice.
Fortunately saffron is used in very small amounts, and a pinch (only 3-4 threads) is all you need for a platter of rice, and only a teaspoon for a pot of sauce. Saffron is high in antioxidants, helps depression, PMS symptoms, and helps with healthy vascular system.

Ten years ago my parents gave me a fig tree to plant in the back yard. It nearly died one year and bounced back, and grew to a 10 feet tree. I guess it needed time, getting used to the garden, and making friendships with the surrounding trees such as the dogwood, and the parade of squirrels, and birds, and the families of cardinals flying over, and landing on its branches.
Every year or so my fig tree, decides to offer me a few figs, and my goodness they are big, beautiful, and not too sweet. I get busy making salads, fig and peanut butter sandwiches, appetizers, and cook a few to top ice cream and pancakes. A few days ago I picked a few for a quick salad. Feta cheese and glazed balsamic. It was beautiful and delicious. Thank you my beautiful fig tree👩🏻🍳😘
Just to mention a few benefits of figs, beside being delicious : high in fiber, and antioxidants, high calcium helps with strong bones, keeping a healthy blood pressure and weight control. One interesting fact, fig trees have natural latex which some people might be allergic to.
