Well, perhaps it's not all about the eggs, but at our house they play a big part in the Easter merriment.
And face it, they are the most color we've seen in April!
Dyeing eggs is an annual tradition with us. We gather with friends Mark and Jan for take-out, dyeing and "Life of Brian."

What I love about the whole thing is that the guys get into it as much as the women.
This is one of Rick's eggs (above). I love the swirls. He also received acclaim for making the first "black" egg. The black egg usually comes at the end of the evening. Unphotographed, it remains a memory of the heart!

Then Sunday, just us. Hopefully a quiet, creative day.
I don't want to jinx anything but as I write this on Saturday, I think I am seeing some sun. Now that would be a gift!
So, I send to you Easter greetings, if you celebrate Easter, and if you don't, then greetings of spring. Perhaps. At long last.

Of course I love to cook! So, of course I love cookbooks, even though I have some I've never used! Still, some of my favorites are Frenc...
