Resurrection Eggs have pretty pastel colors that are easily achieved with 3 simple ingredients (not counting the eggs).
Although famously known as Easter Eggs, I chose the name Resurrection Eggs to honor and to celebrate the powerful resurrection and eternal life of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Perfect side dish for the first Sunday in April, a Christian holiday.

He Is Risen (Matthew 28:1-6 (KJV)
In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

Rubber bands are excellent for creating a design on pastel colored eggs. Simply fold a long (thin) rubber band in half and wrap it around the egg.
Wrapping an egg with a small (thick) rubber band will create a single thick white line around the pastel colored egg. The design is very pretty.
Let the eggs sit in the bowl of colored water for 10 minutes.
Use a slotted spoon to remove each egg from the bowl of colored water.
Drain colored eggs on a mesh (or wire) rack with paper towels underneath to catch the drips.
After the eggs have cooled, remove the rubber bands.
Helpful Tips For Beginners: How To Read & Follow Any Recipe
Reading a recipe is an important life skill that requires knowing how to read a recipe’s ingredients, follow the instructions, prep ingredients, and what type of equipment to use.
The following tips will help beginners or experienced cooks use a recipe to create a delicious dish.
Start with clean hands and organized kitchen. Wash hands thoroughly. Make sure kitchen and countertops are clean before making a recipe.
Create a relaxing environment. Play favorite music while in the kitchen. I love listening to classical or gospel music.
Read the entire recipe from start to finish. Visualize doing each step which will help you follow each step.
If you see ingredient that you and your family don’t use for whatever reason, try a substitute or omit the ingredient.
Pay attention to the order in which ingredients are prepped. For example, 1 cup of chopped pecans is not the same as walnuts, chopped (measure whole walnuts and then chop).
Know the assumptions. For example, when my recipe calls for “sugar,” use granulated sugar. If brown sugar is an ingredient, it will be written that way in the recipe.
Figure out the timing. Check the listed “prep time” and “total time” to be sure you have enough time to complete the recipe.
Look for hints, such as the words “meanwhile” or “at the same time,” which indicate two or more steps can happen simultaneously.
Watch Recipe Videos. If you’re a visual learner (like me), watch recipe videos. Perfect for when you’re learning a new skill or just want to see how a recipe is made.
Mise en place is a super time saver. This French cooking term translates as “putting in place.” It means prepping/measuring ingredients and chopping food before you start cooking. It’s the perfect way to get organized, use each ingredient and complete each step. Nothing is overlooked.
Organize your tools and kitchen equipment. Mise en place isn’t just for ingredients. Before starting, make sure you have parchment paper, aluminum foil, measuring cups, measuring spoons, the right pans, mixing bowls, and other equipment.
Make notes in your recipe. Note any special prep instructions and highlight cooking times. Make note of ingredients omitted, favorite substitutions and creative twists. The notes will be helpful the next time you make this recipe.
