One tradition many families enjoy during the Easter season is to dye hard-boiled eggs. They are often bright and colorful, adding a nice touch to the dinner table, and are good tasting too. Hard-boiled eggs are very versatile, as well as being low cost and filling. Whether you decide to eat them by themselves, chop them on a green salad, make egg salad or make deviled eggs, be creative and enjoy. PineandLakes.com Illustration
