Kelly Rajahpillay and her husband moved to Hagerstown in 2001. They emigrated from the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius. Rajahpillay said the cuisine of Mauritius is influenced by foods from India, China, France, England and Africa. It is often spicy. This recipe is an adaptation from a traditional food from the Chinese region of Canton. Rajahpillay said when she serves these eggs, Americans wonder what the dish is. But when they try it, they like it, she said. These roasted eggs are like a snack.

I occasionally get a craving for eggs, for over-easy, cooked egg whites and runny yolks to dip my toast in. But too often that hankering turns into regret when I taste a few mouthfuls of fried egg.

Two-year-old Fenris Bennett seemed just as happy ripping up grass at Shafer Park as he did later chomping down on a Tootsie Roll from his pink basket of candy. Nichola Maynard filled about a quarter of her white plastic grocery bag with candy, but no plastic eggs. “I'm good at finding candy, but I'm not very good at finding the eggs. I've only found an egg once,” said Nichola, 9, of Boonsboro. Nichola, who was wearing white furry rabbit ears at Boonsboro's Shafer Park, didn't find any plastic eggs Sunday either.

Before the month is over, volunteers at Wesley United Methodist Church will have made upwards of 14,000 chocolate Easter eggs.

WASHINGTON COUNTY Colored with a technique Darc Easton knew as a girl, the Easter eggs at Washington County Rural Heritage Museum featured none of the eye-popping pastels younger people might expect. For 11-year-old Chad Hutzell, that was just fine. "They're pretty cool," Chad said, twirling an egg dyed with boiled onion skins as he played checkers with his sister, Alyson, 8. Chad and Alyson were among the children who received eggs dyed the old-fashioned way during an event Sunday at the museum.

Dear Lynne: Please tell me the origin and interpretation of the toast "chin-chin. " A group of friends and I have been using that toast for years, and it always starts off some interesting conversation. The most controversial was with a Japanese exchange student!! Please share any info you have. Thanks! -- E-mail from a Listener Dear Listener: Usually it's associated with Italy and France (where it is spelled "cin-cin"), meaning "to your health" or "cheers. " In the U.K., "chin-chin" can mean "hello," "goodbye" and "cheers.

The three newest members of Boy Scout Troop 412 - Sean Maguire, Brendan Heisler and Joshua Macias - recently participated in the Easter egg roll at the White House in Washington, D.C., on April 1.

If you offer candy, they will come. Municipal Stadium in Hagerstown became a field of dreams on Saturday as thousands of children realized their biggest fantasy - the ground covered in sweets. In an area of the ballpark where players prowl for line drives and home runs are smashed over the fences, children scrambled for plastic eggs filled with treats. It was a free communitywide egg hunt organized by Lifehouse Church, an event held in partnership with local businesses. “It's our way of reaching out to children and families, sharing our love and providing everyone with a fun day,” said Sheliea Athey, administrative assistant for the church's outreach team.
