    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Beat the eggs, milk and seasoned salt. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Pour into a greased 8 x 12 inch baking dish or 12 custard cups or muffins cups. Cook uncovered until the omelet is set and puffed slightly and the top is a golden brown.
  • 2)Hot Cross Buns:
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Mix the flour, baking powder and salt together in a bowl. Cut in the shortening or butter with a fork until it looks like coarse crumbs. Add the honey, cinnamon and raisins and toss lightly. Make a well in the middle and pour in the milk all at once. Stir it around quickly with a fork and form a ball. Dust your hands with a little extra flour and divide the ball into 6 small ones. Place the 6 balls on sheet pan about 2 inches apart. With a knife cut a deep cross through the top of each ball. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Cool rolls for 10 minutes. Mix all icing ingredients together then fill a small zip lock bag with icing. Make sure the top of the plastic bag is sealed then snip a tiny hole in the bottom corner. Squeeze the icing through the opening and fill-in the cut cross shape on each bun to form the cross.
  • 3)THE EASY WAY TO BLOW AN EGG:Leave the eggs in the carton while you pierce them. Place the pin point-down against the top of the egg and lightly tap the pin head with the back of the spoon until it pierces the egg. Insert the wooden skewer into the egg and gently press it down until it pierces the bottom of the egg. Remove the egg from the carton, hold it over the bowl and push the skewer up and down through the contents several times to break the yolk. Remove the skewer and place a straw over the hole. Blow through the straw until the contents of the egg are emptied into the bowl. Rinse blown eggs in warm water and dry with a paper towel or let them dry in a clean egg carton. Gently wash the inside and outside of the empty eggshells with dishwashing detergent and rinse them. If water remains inside an egg, use a straw to blow it out. Let the eggs dry thoroughly on a rack or in their carton.
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter in a large mixing bowl: add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, mixing well. Combine flour, soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Add to creamed mixture, blending well. Dough will be very stiff. Divide dough into thirds: roll each portion to ¼ inch thickness on lightly floured work area. Cut out a 6 inch oval egg shape. Place cookies 2 inches apart on foil-lined cookie sheets sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until very lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  • Decorator Frosting:
    Combine meringue powder, confectioners? sugar, water, and vanilla and almond extracts in a mixing bowl. Beat on high speed with an electric mixer for 2-3 minutes. Divide in separate bowls and add drops of food color or paste coloring as desired.
