Blue’s Clues and You! Blue and Magenta Deviled Eggs – Recipe

Easter is this Sunday! Time to boil eggs, host an Easter Egg Hunt, and get a basket from the Easter Bunny. There are also Deviled Eggs, Egg salad sandwiches, and other egg-tastic recipes we all love to eat. This year, thanks to Nickelodeon, we can add a little color to all our egg recipes with the help of Blue and Magenta from Blue’s Clues and You! (affiliate link).



While this recipe can be used to color eggs in any recipe (imagine a pink and blue egg salad sandwich), this specific recipe is for Blue and Magenta Deviled Eggs. Deviled Eggs are delicious treats but they are also very repetitive with the standard clump of yellow mash on a white egg. By following some simple instructions and adding a bit of food dye, our Deviled Eggs go from a boring snack to a pink and blue party. Use a piping bag to create paw prints and our treats become a Blue’s Clue.

Here are the items and ingredients we will need to make these Blue and Magenta Deviled Eggs:

  • 6 Hard boiled eggs
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 cup cold water
  • Food Coloring, blue and pink
  • 2 icing bags
  • 2 medium round icing tips
  • wax paper
  • Slotted spoon
  • 2 coffee mugs

Sometimes boiling an egg takes some weird special skill and almost magic like calculations. It took me a while to find that perfect ‘goldilocks zone’ to cook the best hardboiled eggs. This is how I get mine nearly perfect each time. Of course there are days where the stove dislikes me, and/or the eggs dislike me, and/or the water dislikes me. No matter what I do, the eggs still will not do as they are told. On those days, I take a break and refuse to let a little old egg ruin my day. Scrambled is just as good as hardboiled. hahaha

How to boil eggs:

  1. Place 6 eggs in a small pot and fill the pot with water until the eggs are covered.
  2. Heat the water to a boil.
  3. Once the water starts to boil, set the timer to 10 min.
  4. After the 10 minutes are up, remove the pot from the heat.
  5. Let the eggs sit in the hot water for another 10 min.
  6. Rinse with cold water and let cool.

The eggs are now ready to be made into Blue and Magenta Deviled Eggs. To get the instructions on how to make the Deviled Eggs click the image below and save the PDF to your computer. Then print and create for a delicious Blue’s Clues and You Easter celebration.

A Printable Coloring Page of Glimmer from The Princess Palace Pets

The cat’s ‘meow’ certainly has to be Glimmer from the Princess Palace Pets. Her dark purple stripes, light purple fur, and red accessories all sparkle with a beautiful glimmer. Of course, being one of Tiana’s Princess Palace Pets, Glimmer also features a lily pad on her tiara and a green gem on her collar/necklace.

Since she never received an official story before Disney cancelled the franchise, we can only guess about her character. I like to think she is a clean freak, always making sure the area around her is perfectly spotless with that new clean shine. She loves to help Tiana in the kitchen, making sure the food taste divine. However, even with her need for perfection, Glimmer is also a fun loving kitten that will attend bayou concerts, chase fluffy toys, and even get into a bit of mischief when no one is looking.



Glimmer’s Story (written by Marissa Grubbs, an avid Palace Pet fan):
Glimmer met Tiana at the Firefly Music Festival in the bayou when she was surrounded by a lot of fireflies. They flitted around her, making pretty designs with their blinking lights. Tiana invited the tabby cat to come and join her during the festival. Glimmer jumped into Tiana’s arms as if she was saying “yes”

The coloring page features Glimmer with her adorable Palace Pets paw print marking. To download the Glimmer Coloring Page simply click the image below and save the PDF to your computer. Then print, color, and display. If you want Glimmer to become a puppet:

  1. print the coloring page on thick cardstock
  2. Color the kitten to your liking
  3. Cutout the Glimmer along the outer solid black line
  4. make a kickstand out of cardboard.
  5. Glue the kickstand to the back of Glimmer (or glue Glimmer to a popsicle stick)
  6. Let dry
  7. Display

PAW Patrol’s Newest DVD Release is Dino-tastic!

Get ready for all new dino rescue episodes in Nickelodeons newest DVD, PAW Patrol: Dino Rescue Roar to the Rescue. The pups return to the wilds and reunite with their prehistoric friends as they help save the dinosaurs from impending doom or mishaps. With seven full episodes and six original short episodes, this dino-tastic DVD features over two hours of PAW Patrol adventures! PAW Patrol: Dino Rescue Roar to the Rescue is coming to DVD March 23, 2021.



I received a chance to review the DVD and here is what I thought. All opinions are 100% my own.

I love PAW Patrol. This series encourages teamwork, the helping and caring for others, and problem solving skills. Many of the episodes present a problem and show how the pups rescue those in trouble by working together and solving the disastrous situation. For example, in ‘Dino Rescue: Pups Save a Sore Dino,’ a Tyrannosaurus Rex has a branch stuck in his teeth causing him pain. Ryder, Chase, Marshall, Skye, Rocky, Rubble, and other PAW Patrol pups all pitch in by working together to come up with a solution to remove the branch from the large carnivore teeth and stop the pain.

If it isn’t T-Rex and his sore mouth creating chaos, it’s crazy cats, a selfish mayor, or accidental robot malfunctions. However, thanks to PAW Patrol, all of the problems they encounter have solutions. The latest DVD to come from Nickelodeon and SPIN Master, PAW Patrol: Dino Rescue Roar to the Rescue, continues to share these morals and lessons, which provides fans with a trustworthy collection of dino-tastic fun.

PAW Patrol: Dino Rescue Roar to the Rescue contains seven full episodes, three of which feature dinosaurs. I will admit, with the the title of the DVD being ‘Dino Rescues’, I thought the whole episode collection would feature dinosaurs, But less than half of the full episodes contained dino escapades. It was a little disappointing, however that doesn’t mean that the other four episodes weren’t enjoyable; they simply lacked in the Dino Rescue theme.

The three dino episodes included in the DVD are:

  • Dino Rescue: Pups Save a Hum-Dino
  • Dino Rescue: Pups Save a Sore Dino
  • Dino Rescue: Pups Save the Triceratops Tag-Alongs

The four other episodes feature robots, birds, racing, and pie. These episodes are:

  • Pups Save a Waiter Bot
  • Pups Stop a Pie-Clone
  • Pups Save the Big Bad Bird Crew
  • Pups Save a Soapbox Derby

Here comes what I consider to be the gem in the DVD. PAW Patrol: Dino Rescue Roar to the Rescue contains six Original Short episodes all featuring dino rescues! These episodes showcase Velociraptors, Stegosaurus’, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Triceratops, Pterodactyls, and more! In each of these episodes The PAW Patrol pups go on missions to save and help each of these dinosaurs, whether it be rescuing Velociraptors eggs or throwing a T-Rex birthday party.. The original shorts included are:

  • Pups Save a Tromping Triceratops
  • Pups Save a Baby Stegosaurus
  • Pups Save a Dino Christmas
  • Pups Save a Pterodactyl Egg
  • Pups Save the Baby Raptors
  • Pups Save a Tyrannosaurus’ Birthday

My favorite Original Short has to be, “Pups Save the Baby Raptors.” I think the baby raptors are so adorable…Yes, I do base my likes on how cute I find the dinosaurs.

These original shorts definitely make up for the fact that four of the seven full PAW Patrol episodes are not dino related. In fact, I am giving this DVD 5 stars because of these wonderfully adorable shorts. I mean look at that picture above. How can anyone not like baby raptors?!?

A Printable Coloring Page of Slingshot from The Princess Palace Pets

Slingshot was going to be a Princess Palace Pet for Princess Merida. There were mock ups of his design and a possible toy, however, Slingshot never made it before Disney cancelled the Palace Pets franchise. That didn’t stop fans from creating a fake Furry Tail Friends toy of Slingshot. Thanks to these avid fans, I was able to get a picture of the fake toy in order to make a Slingshot coloring page.

Slingshot’s Story (written by Marissa Grubbs, an avid Palace Pet fan):
Slingshot is a deerhound puppy. He was a gift from Merida’s mother. Since his sense of adventure matches Merida’s personality, Slingshot was a great companion to Merida and provided protection when Queen Elinor joined Merida on her rides.



The coloring page features Slingshot in his mint green fur and red tail. He also sports a red Palace Pets paw print marking. To download the Slingshot Coloring Page simply click the link below the image and save the PDF to your computer. Then print, color, and display. If you want Slingshot to become a puppet:

  1. print the coloring page on thick cardstock
  2. Color the fox to your liking
  3. Cutout the fox along the outer solid black line
  4. make a kickstand out of cardboard.
  5. Glue the kickstand to the back of the fox (or glue Skyla to a popsicle stick)
  6. Let dry
  7. Display

How to Make Rainbow Cookies for St. Patrick’s Day – Recipe

March is the start of spring, the start of craft fairs and farmer’s markets, and it is the time of rainbows and wearing green on St. Patrick’s Day. I am usually very safe on March 17 since I have a bright green shirt, green hair ties, green earrings, and even green socks. One can’t be too careful when it comes to the national day of making pinching others okay. My ensemble will be bright, noticeable, and most of all, keep me safe.



With me safe and sound and not having to worry about the secret police flying from behind me to exact punishment for my lack of the yellow and blue combo, I can actually spend time making March 17 a day to remember. This year my family will enjoy a wonderful corn beef dinner, fun chocolate coins scattered throughout the home, and a very unique rainbow cookie recipe.

In my infinite wisdom, I have decided to make these cookies in advance so that I am not rushing around the kitchen all day on St. Patrick’s Day. This will also give my family a few extra days of fun and delicious desserts before we go on a pinching spree.

To start making these cookies, I took my room temperature butter and creamed it with the sugar, and vanilla extract. Once the butter and sugar was creamed, I added the egg. This is what it looked like at this point.

In another bowl I mixed together the flour, salt, and baking soda. I then slowly add the dry to the wet and beat it until it formed a soft crumble. I gradually added milk to the mixture until it formed a dough. Sometimes I need more milk and sometimes I use less depending on the size of the “large egg” i had on hand.

Now for the fun part, adding the colors! I divided the dough into 6 balls. I then began my color coding process. With the three primary colors, red, blue, and yellow, technically one can create every color under the sun. I, on the other hand, will be lucky to get anything in the general color spectrum of the rainbow.

The rainbow colors are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. For these cookies, I cut indigo out of the equation. This means I had to make 6 colors and half of them were already done! I mean, I just needed to add enough drops of red, yellow, and blue to create the rich color I desired. Even then, however, the colors went wacky and dark. I used 7 drops of each color just to get a rich enough color scheme. NOTE: Use gloves to fold in the colors…unless you want to look like you stole a bag of Lucky Charms.

Orange, green, and violet are a little more difficult. I know from 4th grade art class that orange is made from red and yellow, green is made from yellow and blue, and violet is made from red and blue, What I didn’t know was how much of each color I needed to make the desired effect. Before adding anything to my dough, I made a mixture in a separate cup and tested the result on a paper towel.. SIDE NOTE: the paper towel trick didn’t help…at all. My purple constantly looked black. So I ended up winging it.

Once my six colored balls had been made, I rolled each ball into a 12 inch cylinder. This step is probably the easiest to complete. The years of rolling playdough and enhancing my skills of the perfect roll finally became useful. Oh yeah! Expert dough roller coming through!

After I used my expert skills of rolling dough, I then layered the cylinders on top of each other and twisted them together to make a large tube. It sort of looked like something I would find from Pillsbury or some other cookie in a tube company. Only this one didn’t pop and scare the cookie dough out of me.

My dark tube of colors had to endure one more step before it could become a tray of cookies. It had to be sliced at 1-inch intervals to form 16 disks. I know this may seem rather thick for a cookie but these cookies hardly rise or spread when baked. I am sure they will bake just fine smaller, however, I suggest a shorter baking time for trial and error purposes. I cut my tube into 1-inch thick disks and placed them on a cookie sheet about an inch apart.

I placed the cookies in a 350 degree preheated oven and set the timer for 10 min. At this point I was really hoping these would not turn into a gooey rainbow mess and look like melted troll dolls. I am pretty sure, no one is gonna want to eat a melted Poppy. Making a cookie recipe is so scary sometimes. Will I have a huge mess to clean or a beautiful creation to show off? Only time will tell. In 10 minutes I would know how my creation turned out.

And…Success!! I am absolutely shocked to see how vibrant the cookies look. The colors lightened enough to actually make these cookies appear like a rainbow!

To make these cookies use the recipe below and follow the directions. They are a quick treat that is different than the classic chocolate chip cookie. More like a cake, these fluffy morsels are the perfect surprise for St. Patrick’s Day.
