Great Easter Egg Decorating Ideas

Easter is less than a week away, so it’s time to start dying those eggs and planning your egg hunts! The process of egg boiling can be a bit boring just by itself, so I have decided to incorporate an egg hunt party this year.

Every year I waited patently over the stove watching eggs until I found the KRUPS Egg Cooker, a genius product that cooks your eggs perfectly every time.  I thought for sure it was all a gimmick, but instead it turned out to be a wonderful solution to a problem we all have around the holidays. Now you will have time for baking and fun decorating projects!

You can even boil up to seven eggs at one time. (I have never been able to get more than five eggs in one pot, so this little machine is going to really come in handy.) The machine can also be used to make poached eggs, and individual omelets which are perfectly portioned for your little ones.

Here are a few fun egg decorating projects for the family!
