Baby turns one month old! If it’s a tradition in your family to mark the occasion with red eggs for your guests, try this recipe from our mum reader.
“It’s much more cost-efficient to make your own red eggs than to order them. The secret for bright and beautiful red eggs is to add vinegar and sugar in the colour bath. It took me three kids to get the recipe right!” Irene Soh, stay-at-home mum to three kids, shares.
