Happy Easter everyone!

I thought I'd share with you a style of naturally dyed Easter eggs traditional to my country.
My own eggs - which I color every year following this technique - have not happened this Easter due to insufficient prep. There is not much planning required at all - you just need to have handy sufficient onion leaves - but I'm a total airhead. The pathetic shop dye colored eggs I've ended up with serve me well.

I found however this wonderful blog post by Romanian fellow Alina from Explora Cuisine that has stunning photos to guide you through all stages of the process, and if you scroll down you will find the guidelines in English of how to produce these eggs.
Alina is based in Toronto and her food themed blog is bilingual, which is great. I tell you, this lady whom I've only just discovered myself  is amazing. Her blog is a heaven for the foodie, and brings up recipes from home that I yearn to taste, explained  very clearly and with lots of helpful pics (I'm a visual learner).
Thank you Alina and I hope you ladies and gents enjoys this!
