    Setting up an egg hunt can be a lot of hard rock. With so many kids coming, you’ll need to make sure you have enough eggs and enough places to hide them. Painting the eggs is going to be an entire afternoon, at best, and you need to run out and get Easter prizes too. While you’re busy creating memories they’ll never forget, leave the cooking to us and worry about one less thing on this special day.
