Easter fun: Dyed Easter Quail Eggs!

I thought it’d be fun to do a little twist on the traditional Easter egg dying tradition. I picked up a dozen quail eggs at Hong Kong Supermarket for $1.19. I boiled them for 5 minutes, let them cool and dunked them in a homemade Easter Egg dye mixture of 4 parts hot water, 1 part vinegar and 5 drops of food coloring. Here’s my result!

How to dye Easter quail eggs

They were more for a centerpiece than anything else, but I thought they looked awesome! They have a really earthy texture to them since quail eggs are naturally speckled. As an added bonus, I got to eat the boiled quail eggs later that night. I love boiled quail eggs with rice and a little soy sauce. Yum!

Peeps Recipe- Strawberry Peeps Smoothie

When brainstorming for our Easter special Peeps Torture series, I thought I’d figure out a way to torture a Peep AND make something tasty at the same time. It’s like killing two marshmallow birds with one stone! Or in this case, four spinning steel blades.

The addition of marshmallow Peeps to a strawberry smoothie give it a thicker and creamier texture. You really can taste the Peeps!

Peeps Torture- microwaving marshmallow peeps

Welcome to the first installment of our special Easter segment, Peeps Torture! Oh, sorry. I meant Peeps Advanced Interrogation Techniques. Better? Not really, but here we go!

From now until Easter, I’m going to find new ways to maim, mutilate and macerate these cute little marshmallow chicks! I figured I first should start with the classic torture- the microwave. Surprisingly, I’ve never actually microwaved Peeps. There are pop culture references to it, but I never got around to doing it. That’s about to change!

Here’s the video of microwaving Peeps for 30 seconds:




Wow, that was actually more than I expected. Microwaving Peeps cause them to fluff up and grow to almost 3 times the size. After about 20 seconds, the Peep starts to deflate. The other 10 seconds was more overkill than anything else. And the coolest part? It tastes awesome! Better than “live” Peeps, these nuked Peeps taste alot like those meringue cookies. Same texture and everything!

Our lesson today- microwaving defenseless marshmallow baby chicks is delicious.
