Happy 40th Anniversary Star Wars

May 25th, 2017

Can you believe it’s been 40 years since the first Star Wars movie?

“Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday dear Star Wars. Happy Birthday to you!”

“Star Wars: A New Hope—and I’m absolutely certain the comments will explode with people debating whether it is just Star Wars or A New Hope—was released on May 25, 1977 in a hilariously small number of theaters and with George Lucas still doubting that it would be a success. Of course, instead the movie generated the gigantic crowds and lines that it’s stillgenerating 40 years later.” via  Katharine Trendacosta – http://io9.gizmodo.com


May the Force be with all aspiring Jedi cooks as Yoda, Darth Vader and R2-D2–shaped cookie cutters can create 30 sweet and savory treats!

Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs

April 4th, 2017
Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs

Who needs an overpriced kit with synthetic colour tablets when you’ve already got colorful ingredients in your kitchen?

Long before overpriced, bunny-covered boxes of Easter egg dyes enticed every child walking into a supermarket in late spring, people coloured eggs with ordinary ingredients found in any kitchen. Making naturally dyed Easter eggs is easier than you think. All you do is boil some richly pigmented foods in water, add vinegar and salt, and let white hard-boiled eggs soak. You’ll end up with beautiful colours that cost much less than a kit, make good use of food scraps that might otherwise go to waste, and be able to eat the finished product – something you should never do with conventionally dyed eggs.

You can use cooled hardboiled eggs, but these should stay in the fridge after dyeing if you plan to eat them. Alternatively, you can pierce a hole at either end and blow out the contents; make scrambled eggs and use the shells, though you must be careful because they’re fragile. You can also dye raw eggs. Over time, the yolk inside will shrivel up and you’ll be able to hear a faint rattle when you shake it, but this takes months. Decorated raw eggs will not smell unless they’re broken before the insides dry out. This is the method I always use when making Ukrainian eggs each year.

Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs Recipe

The dyeing formula stays roughly the same, no matter what you use: 2 cups of water for every 1 cup of chopped vegetable or fruit. If using turmeric, add 6 tbsp to the same amount of water. Boil the vegetable for 20 minutes, add 1 tbsp each of white vinegar and salt, then submerge the egg.

Natural dyes don’t work as quickly as synthetic colors, so you have to be patient. As The Globe and Mail said in a 2012 article on this topic, “The instant-gratification factor of this craft is low,” so it may be challenging for young kids. The longer you leave it, the darker it will be. Overnight may be a good idea.

Blue-Turquoise: Chopped purple cabbage
Purple: A cheap red wine or grape juice, undiluted
Pink: Beets and peels, frozen cherries or raspberries, pomegranate juice (undiluted)
Yellow: Turmeric powder or shredded turmeric root for brighter color; simmered orange peels for lighter shade
Red-Orange: Paprika or chopped carrots, chili powder for a browner hue
Green-Blue: Boil green cabbage, then add some turmeric.
Bluish-Grey: Frozen blueberries
Brown-Gold: Simmer 2 tbsp dill seeds in a cup of water and strain before use, or use strong coffee.
Green: Spinach or parsley

Make the eggs prettier by wrapping in elastic bands or drawing on them with a wax crayon or birthday candle before dyeing. (That’s the idea behind Ukrainian pysanky, where wax designs cover different layers of colour and then are melted off by holding over a candle.) Make a mottled texture by dabbing with a sponge. Shine dry eggs with coconut oil and voila naturally dyed Easter Eggs!

This age old tradition is a fun way to spend some time with family and friends this Easter. Don’t forget to get your supplies in time for this year’s festivities. Easter is April 16th, 2017.
