3 red potatoes per person
1 egg per person

Cut the red potatoes in quarters and put into a pot.
Cover potatoes with water and boil until the potatoes are tender.
Make hard boiled eggs, peel and slice.
Chop celery into slices. (My children do not like pickles, yet I love the crunch celery adds, and the color)
Once the potatoes are tender.  Drain the water.  Put the potatoes in a bowl.
Add the eggs, celery, and mayonnaise.  Mayonnaise is up to your liking.  I like a lot.
The mayonnaise absorbs into the potatoes when they are warm, so it takes a bit more.
Stir together.
Refrigerate, or serve warm!

This is a perfect meal to take on a picnic!

Dyed Egg Whites and Easy Deviled Eggs

We have probably all dyed eggs for Easter creating fun designs and beautiful colors, but what about the inside of the egg?  Have you ever tried to dye the egg whites? I found it was so easy and didn’t take long for a cheerful, bright presentation!  How lovely would these look on your Easter table?  Or dye them in red and blue for a 4th of July bbq!  The possibilities are endless!  I also think they would look lovely chopped up in potato salad or egg salad!  Let  me show you how to dye the egg whites, and some easy tips for perfect deviled eggs!

You will need

hard boiled eggs

8-10 drops of food coloring

cups

1/2 tbsp Vinegar per color used

1/2 cup water per color

paper towels

For the deviled eggs you will need

mayonnaise

pickle juice

spoon

salt and pepper to taste

sandwich baggie

To dye your eggs, first cook them.  Once they are boiled and cooled peel them.  Just before you peel them, prepare your water. I only did 3 eggs to try it out and only used 3 colors.  You will need 1/2 cup water, 1/2 tbsp vinegar and 8-10 drops of food coloring depending on the intensity of the color you desire.  Make sure it is stirred well.

Now, once your water is prepared and your eggs are peeled, cut them in half and put the yolk in a bowl.  Have a cute, little kitchen helper drop the egg whites into the prepared colors.

I only let them stay in the water for just 5 minutes and the colors were all very vibrant.  I you are going for more pastel shades, take them out sooner.

Once they are the desired shade, you are going to take them out and lay them upside down on a paper towel so all of the dye can drain out of them and they can dry.  They are already flipped over in this picture, but you can get an idea of the color!

Now. lets let them dry while we prepare the deviled eggs.  Mash up your egg yolks that you set aside in a bowl.  I don’t measure my ingredients usually for deviled eggs, it is more by watching the texture.  Since I only did 3 eggs, I maybe used 1 1/2 tbsp of mayo?  Just put small amounts in and mix well so you don’t end up with too much!  You can always add more, but you can’t take it away!  My “secret ingredient” is pickle juice.  Again, you don’t need a lot!  It helps give them great flavor without tasting like pickles!  Once your mixture is a nice, creamy consistency put it in a sandwich baggie and cut off the end.

Simply pipe the filling into your eggs.  You can get fancy and pipe into a nice design or just simply drop it in.  It is so much easier than scooping it into each egg with a spoon!  I don’t know about you, but deviled eggs aren’t something that gets made a lot here because they are kind of a pain.  This method definitely makes them easier and quicker!

That is it!  You are done! Just in time to add a lovely accent to your Easter table!

Honey Pineapple Orange Grilled Pork Chop Recipe

  • 1-2 lb of pork chops (I like the medium cut)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 20 oz can of Pineapple (just the juice save the fruit for grilling)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon Franks Red Hot Sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 orange sliced or 2 cutie oranges sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic

Honey Pineapple Orange Grilled Pork Chop Recipe, Pork chop marinades, Pineapple Pork Chops #Pork, #Recipe, #PineapplePork, #GrilledPorkRecipeThis marinade can be used on any cut of meat but is really good on pork chops.  You can marinate overnight but I normally just make it in the morning let it sit all day and cook them up for dinner.

Honey Pineapple Orange Grilled Pork Chop Recipe, Pork chop marinades, Pineapple Pork Chops #Pork, #Recipe, #PineapplePork, #GrilledPorkRecipeI always marinate them in a glass pan, but this can also be done in a gallon sized zip lock bag.Mix together your marinade (honey, pineapple juice, soy sauce, mustard, hot sauce, oranges, garlic and brown sugar). Add your pork shops and  place in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours.  You can bake them in the oven, cook them on the stove top or grill on the BBQ.  Our family likes them best on the grill.  You want to make sure and cook them till internal temperate of the pork is at least 145 degrees. We also like to take the pineapple from can (juice used in the recipe) and grill it up with a little brown sugar on the grill.
