Sometimes I have great ideas, other times they are just mediocre, and on occassion they are just big hairy losers. This week I decided to make natural dye Easter Eggs. Verdict: mostly big hairy loser with elements of mediocrity.

The mission: create colorful easter eggs using only edible natural elements to achieve the goal.

The method: boiling the eggs with vinegar and a color element. Blueberries for blue, beet juice for pink, spinach for green and turmeric for yellow.

The result: The turmeric eggs were beautiful, the blueberry eggs were gruesome, the beet eggs were bland and the spinach eggs just looked dirty!

But it was a well intentioned idea – and the yellow eggs were beautiful!
