Colorful Deviled Eggs - Happy Easter

Today is Good Friday.  I am Catholic, so, therefore, I have not had any meat on Friday during the Lenten Season and have enjoyed following the tradition of attending the Knight of Columbus Fish Fry and Stations of the Cross each Friday at my Church.  Even though I have had an Easter cupcake countdown, I realize the true meaning of Easter~~~He has risen!~~~

Meanwhile, instead of Dyeing boiled eggs this year, I decided to do something different.  I love Pinterest, so many people have so many great ideas and talents.....I have enough pinned on my boards that I could not possible do in my lifetime! When I came across Foodjimotto and their colorful Deviled Eggs, I said, "YES!" My daughter is coming to visit for Easter and she LOVES deviled eggs...PERFECT! Using the idea, I created my own recipe!

Aren't they adorable!

Use food coloring for dyeing the whites.

Boil a dozen eggs.

Tip for peeling eggs:  tap egg softly on hard surface, I use my kitchen sink, cracking it up, then roll the egg in your hands with gentle pressure, peel will slide right off!  Sometimes I add a little baking soda to the boiling water for easy peeling.

Slice Eggs in half-the long way.  I use an egg slicer...
