I am a purist when it comes to Easter Eggs. I do not like fancy decorated eggs, I prefer strong pure colors...Through the years it was hard to refrain with family, not to micro manage coloring eggs, or better yet getting up in the middle of the night and doing it myself. Every year there were a couple members of the family that would dip the eggs in all colors producing this unattractive khaki color, I will not mention names but you know who you are...... I am anxious to see in my family, if the next generation of Easter Egg colorists, rubbed off just a little.
As I searched the internet for some great colored eggs, I was disappointed...I had to resort back to my old favorite cookbooks for photos. I must say, dear Martha and I must have been distant cousins in some past life...she did rub off on me. These photos are from one of Martha's older books "Martha Stewart’s Menus for Entertaining". Eggs....just the way I like them....with strong great color!
