Fresh Sheet: DIY edibles for Easter brunch, ModBar

Here’s a cute idea from Woman’s Day magazine for turning deviled eggs into Easter chicks to spruce up a buffet or children’s table. Cut off and reserve the top third of a hard-boiled egg, remove the yolk from the bottom two-thirds and follow your favorite recipe for deviled eggs or the one below. Then, cut a thin slice from the bottom of each egg white to create a base. With a 1-inch cookie-dough scoop, place the yolk mixture into each egg white and top it with the reserved third of the egg. Place thinly sliced carrots at the base for feet, on the sides for wings and in the middle of the yolk mixture for beaks. Use capers for eyes and fresh herbs to make eyebrows, mustaches, beards and hair.

Unusual Congolese coffee lands in Spokane

In the three years since Di Bernardo and her husband opened a tiny coffee roasting business in Spokane, they have been on the hunt for organic coffees that are grown sustainably by farmers who get fair prices for their crops. Late last year, she began looking into another layer of that good-works commitment – crops grown by women.
