I love homemade pizza! How about you? One night, like most nights, I was in a hurry to get dinner on the table and feed my belly aching, hungry five. I reached for a recipe that I adapted and had played around with quite a bit a while back from allrecipes. This is now one of my “Go To” recipes when I’m in a pinch for time and have five little monkeys screaming, “We’re hungry!” The results were unanimous, thumbs up all around.

*This recipe was tested using a regular round pizza pan and a pizza stone. I highly recommend using a pizza stone with this recipe. Enjoy!

  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

  6. Shape dough and place on HOT pizza stone.

How to Dye Easter Eggs with Shaving Cream

 

If you need more Easter Egg ideas, be sure and follow our Easter Pinterest Board

How to dye eggs with shaving cream, Shaving Cream SWIRL eggs, Easter Eggs, #Easter, How to make swirled easter eggs

TIP: if you are worried about the shaving cream getting into the egg shell, you can do the same process with Cool Whip and food color. See how to make COOL WHIP EASTER EGGS here. 

Every Easter we think of fun ways for the kids to enjoy dying and coloring their Easter Eggs. When you Dye Easter Eggs with shaving cream, the kids can get right in there and have fun in the shaving cream.  And the shaving cream will actually even help clean up the mess afterwards. And second to the fun tie dye colors on the eggs, the shaving cream is so cheap! You can pick up the shaving cream in most stores for under a buck! Make sure it is shaving cream and not shaving gel. The gel will not work like the shaving cream will.

Here is how you can dye Easter eggs with shaving cream to make swirl Easter eggs.

How to dye eggs with shaving cream, Shaving Cream SWIRL eggs, Easter Eggs, #Easter, How to make swirled easter eggs

First get the normal food coloring out of your cabinets. Or make sure you pick up the cheap liquid food coloring dye at the store.

Get one or two cans of shaving cream – remember it has to say cream, the shaving gel will not work.

A glass pan or flat bottom bowl or dish to roll the eggs in. A metal pan will work too if you don’t have glass, it is just the glass will not absorb the color like the small pits and scratches in metal might.

You can follow the directions on the back of the food coloring dye to make fun new colors. Make sure you place it in a glass cup or small bowl so it won’t leave a stain behind.

Next spray a layer of shaving cream in the bottom of the glass pan. You only need it no deeper then one inch. Anything more then that will just be wasted.

Here is a great deal on Foam Shaving Cream It needs to be “shaving foam” not the “shaving gel”

Spread the shaving cream some what smooth so the coloring does not run down steep slopes and pool together.

Then with as many colors as you want to use, we found between 2-4 works best or it just blends together too much and creates brown or ugly green.

Our favorite food coloring Dye – McCormick Assorted Food and Egg Dye

Place the drops of the food coloring in random spots all over the layer of shaving cream. The more random the better the colors will swirl.

Next with a thin toothpick, or a small narrow stick or even a lollipop stick, drag the stick through the shaving cream in random lines. Large swirls and loops will give the layering effect.

Once you have the swirls the way you think looks great, place the Easter Egg in the shaving cream on one end.

Gently roll the Easter Egg in a straight line from one side to the other.

Carefully pick up the Easter Egg and gently place it on cardboard so it will not roll.

You can leave it there till the shaving cream starts to dry up. Usually about 5-10 minutes and you can then clean it.

To clean it take a paper towel and gently dry off the shaving cream off the egg.

Don’t worry the food coloring has already done its magic.

After you have all the eggs cleaned off and dried, now you can roll them around and check out your artistic work!

Our kids enjoyed every part. With the old tablets and vinegar, they always got bored and thought it smelled.

Using shaving cream our kids thought it smelled great and had fun at every part of the project!

Getting to watch the shaving cream fly out of the can when they sprayed it into the pans, and then even had fun smoothing it all out.

It was fun for us to watch them strategically place each dot of food coloring.

They will tell you the best part was the rolling it in the cream and then the drying part when they got to see their fun work!How to dye eggs with shaving cream, Shaving Cream SWIRL eggs, Easter Eggs, #Easter, How to make swirled easter eggs

So make it a fun night with your kids. Share this with your family and learn how to dye Easter Eggs with shaving cream. They will make fun bright designs that will win any Easter Egg coloring contest out there!

And then when you are all done you have some fun looking eggs ready for egg salad sandwiches, potato salad and all the fun things you can make with hard boiled eggs!

Jalapeno Bacon Popper Dip

Jalapeno Popper Dip with Bacon, a quick and easy dip that is warm and cheesy and will have your party guest asking for MORE, #PoppersDip, #JalapenoDip, #Party, #Recipe

I had a “girls night” with my cousins this weekend, so it gave me the chance to whip up a new dip. It turned out amazing and even my kids liked it! As my 4 year old said, “Mom these spicy pickles are good”. The best part about this dip is you can have a great flavor of the Jalapeno peppers with out the heat.  If you want to spice it up, add more peppers or leave some of the seeds in, but this mild version was perfect for my family.

Jalapeno Bacon Popper Dip

You will need:

  • 1 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1 tablespoon ranch seasoning mix
  • 2 jalapeno peppers  diced(take the seeds out) if you want it hotter 4 peppers
  • 1/3 cup cooked and crumbled bacon  (save a bit back for garnish)
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 2 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon parsley

Jalapeno Popper Dip with Bacon, a quick and easy dip that is warm and cheesy and will have your party guest asking for MORE, #PoppersDip, #JalapenoDip, #Party, #Recipe

This is the fastest and easiest dip, but taste like you worked on it for hours.  Mix all the ingredients together, till well blended.  Spread on the bottom of a 9×9 baking dish, top with crumbled bacon.  Bake in the oven at 350 for 15-20 minutes till edges are golden brown.

TIP: I like to bake mine in two smaller dishes (reduced cooking time a few minutes) I like the dip best when HOT and cheesy right out of the oven.  If I cook it in two pans at different times I can put one out at the start of the party, and pull the second one out once the first one is gone.

Dill Dip Recipe, Finger Food Party Ideas, Cool and Creamy Dill Dip perfect for family reunions, football parties, summer bbq's or just as a lunch snackCool and Creamy Dill Dip

I love this fast and easy recipe for dill dip. It will be the hit of your party or bbq, it is even good as a spread for sandwiches or burgers.  It is best if made the day before the event so the flavors have lots of time to blend. But can also be made last minute if needed.  Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as our family does.

You will need:
1 1/2 cup Sour Cream
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp Dill Weed
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp Onion powder
1/2 tsp Granulated beef bouillon
Salt and pepper  to taste (about 1/4 teaspoon each)

In a small bowl add the dill weed, garlic powder, onion powder, beef bouillon and salt and pepper. Mix well and set aside. In a medium sized bowl (3 cup bowl) with a lid (the lid helps with easy storage) add mayonnaise and sour cream. Fold together until creamy and smooth. Add in the seasoning mix well. Chill for 1 hour minimum, best if chilled 24 hours. Serve with your favorite Rye Bread, chips, pretzels, bagel chips or veggies. Garnish with a pinch of dill weed just before serving.
