It´s almost 2 weeks since I have written a new recipe in this site. I know it´s Good Friday and I have to fast but we have a visitor today and so I made a special snack for us to go with our teas and coffees.

 

It was an easy snack recipe and the pastry was readymade as I have used filo pastry that I have bought in the supermarket. I have to tell you honestly that it was the first time I have made this filo pastry snack. I used my imagination again and made this with the ingredients I had in my fridge. These snacks turned out delicious and so I have to share this with you.

3 tablespoons yoghurt salad dressing

2 tablespoons olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

baking sheet for the baking tray

I was not sure if our visitor ate mandarine and so I divided the recipe into 2 portions. Half of the tuna flakes mixture was with mandarine, the other half was without mandarine. I cut the long filo pastry crosswise into 2.

Procedure:

  1. Cut the filo pastry into 2 and brush them with olive oil.
  2. Drain and mix the tuna flakes in a bowl.
  3. Add the  yoghurt salad dressing, spring onion, salt and pepper.
  4. Divide the tuna flakes mixture into 2 and add the chopped mandarine to the other half portion.
  5. Spread the tuna flakes to their respected filo pastries. One with mandarine fruits, the other one without.
  6. Put 3 pieces of cheese on top of each filled filo pastries.
  7. Roll each filo pastries and cut each into 10 pieces.
  8. Arrange the tuna filo pastry pinwheels on the baking tray with baking sheet.
  9. Brush with blended egg and bake in a pre-heated oven (200°C) for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

That was the first time I have baked tuna filo pastry pinwheels and I was happy with the result. The tuna flakes mixture in this recipe is one of my basic recipe when making tuna sandwiches for spontaneous snacks and so I thought I could make this as well for baking the pastry snacks.

Ways To Decorate Easter Eggs

My Easter Eggs With Stickers Decorations
My Easter Eggs With Stickers Decorations

Have you tried decorating your eggs for Easter? Do you celebrate Easter season in your country?

 

Many years ago when my son was still small, my hubby, our son and I sat at the table one of the days before Easter Sunday to make Easter eggs. We boiled 2 dozens of eggs and colored them as simple as we could. Either we dyed the eggs with food coloring in various colors or we painted them with water based coloring extra for coloring the eggs. Sometimes, I just bought Easter eggs food coloring kit which was easy to handle.

 

There are many ways to color the eggs nowadays and they are just as beautiful as the painted eggs. Here´s how.

 

Ways To Decorate Easter Eggs:

 

  1. By using food coloring which you can buy in the supermarkets. Every sachet of food coloring has its own color like red, yellow, blue, green and black. There are also tablets form of food coloring.
  2. By using Text Markers. Painting, drawing or writing  on the hard boiled eggs the way you want them to be.
  3. By using Stickers. Pasting the stickers (photo above) on  hard boiled eggs or an empty but clean eggs. You can buy flowers, fairy tales or comics stickers in the crafting stores.
  4. By using Melted Crayons. Boiled eggs are decorated with shaved crayons while the eggs are still hot.
  5. By using Rubber Bands. Putting rubber bands on boiled eggs before dying the eggs.
  6. By using Acrylic Paint. This is painting the hard boiled eggs with acrylic paint colors and with the use of sponge or cotton balls.
  7. By using Glitters. You have to empty the eggs when using glitters. This means you can keep the Easter glitter decorated eggs for the next Easter season.

 

These are some of the methods I know of coloring Easter eggs. As I still have time until Easter Sunday, the day we eat the Easter Eggs, I will be creating some of these DIYs and will post the tutorials on how to make them here at Blogjob. Thanks for reading. Enjoy your weekend!
