Make the most of a hot oven and prep eggs for your next batch of deviled eggs, egg salad or weekday breakfasts.

 

When you become a parent, you realize how hard it is to explain certain concepts (that we all take for granted) to young children. Beyond just birds-and-bees type topics, I'm talking really hard concepts -- you know, like time change, time zones, decimals and division... all of these are talks I've had to tackle with my boys in just the last few weeks. And then there are the really hard conversations -- like how does Santa get in your house if you don't have a chimney? Or how does the Easter bunny find you if you've already left for Spring Break. #MoreRealLife. 

But the question that never seems to come up -- which I think begs to be answered -- is why do we hunt Easter Eggs, if there's no Easter Chicken. It's a bunny... remember?

Easter is one of my absolute favorite holidays. I love {most} of the weather down south in the spring -- minus the pollen and propensity for scary tornadic activity #Yikes. I love Easter Egg hunts so much, that as a little girl, my grandmother {Mawmaw Ween as many of you know her} would save L'eggs pantyhose eggs and hide them with me throughout the year.

But what I don't love is a dozen {or more} hard-boiled eggs hanging out in my 'fridge with nowhere to go. {Note: Food Safety 101 -- if you're going to actually eat your leftover Easter Eggs, keep them refrigerated up until the hunt and then refrigerate after. Or just use plastic eggs and make a batch to color for funsies & food. #StaySafe.}

Anyway, we shared this round up last year on the blog and it was popular enough I thought it worth a recipe revisit. Be sure to bookmark these. After next weekend, you're going to need them!
