Have you ever watched little kids dish up food at a buffet and think to yourself, “They will never be able eat all that!”? I always have big plans, bigger than I seem to have the energy to accomplish. Last week I was busy making desserts for our family Easter gathering, mostly recipes or ideas that I found on Pinterest: Easter pastels dipped Golden Oreos…I used the leftover candy melts from the cake pops that I made…super easy! Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats. Yep…they were good enough to make again! Since I was trying to make desserts with things I had on hand, I opted to make Oreo Surprise Cupcakes…I was short on the supplies to make them minty.

Granted, I think this is more of an Easter-ish idea, but with St. Patrick’s Day (ie. leprechauns, pot’o’gold, green things and rainbows) I decided to try my hand at this fun concept. You can see the original post here. To begin with, I’ve been having trouble with hard boiling eggs recently. I go for ages without making them, and I somehow forget how to do them without the grey ring around the yolk. I know that is from over-cooking, but I do not remember how long I’m supposed to cook them. Sometimes I get busy and forget to set the timer or don’t get them in the cold water soon enough/long enough. So when I saw another pin on Pinterest about how to boil an egg, I added it right to my board. Here is THAT original link. It came down to this: Put your eggs in a pot and cover the eggs with cold water, plus about an
