Easter Holiday Recipes


Naturally Colored Pink Egg Whites


The Secret is out!  Naturally Colored Pink Egg Whites were a surprise as we experimented with various natural products to color our hard boiled eggs. What a surprise it was to find that beets/juice/tea produced not only light pink shells but also vivid pink colored egg whites inside. A double surprise is that they didn’t taste like beets at all.  All you have are beautiful boiled eggs with pink egg whites and yellow yolks.  Use them for your vegetable tray or even make avocado filled deviled eggs. They are so cool!


See the pink egg white as you remove the shell.

 Lithuanian Kugeli Potato Casserole


Pan of Baked Lithuanian Kugeli Potato Casserole


Appetizer Sized Kugeli Pieces for a party or family get together

Rejoice!  Now this popular Lithuanian potato dish can be enjoyed by vegetarians too. The pound of bacon and large amounts of butter have disappeared and are replaced with healthier ingredients.  Caramelized onions flavor the dish, allowing everyone to enjoy this traditional favorite.  If someone wants to add bacon, lightly mix some cooked bits into half of the dish before baking.  Kugeli tastes like a fluffy potato pancake when the crust is crisp.  Enjoy a Lithuanian traditional recipe that can be served as a side dish or an appetizer.  Delicious with dollops of light sour cream or fresh chilled applesauce.
