The gloom and rain of the past few weeks has abated and the Easter weekend has been sunny and gorgeous. We have all been busy with preparation for Easter... all the seasonal delights that I grew up with like brightly dyed eggs, buttery and golden plaited biscuits (koulourakia) and the traditional Greek Tzoureki, which is a brioche formed in a plaited wreath and sprinkled with toasted almonds. One year I got a good deal on blue vegetable dye, hence my famous blue eggs for the last several seasons... but, this year I tried my hand at silk dyed eggs ... a fiddly little affair, but worth the time they take. Actually, I think they turned out OK for a first time effort. Naturally, the Easter table is not complete without a chocolate bunny or two!
