You've spent a chunk of time decorating your Easter eggs. Why not give them a glossy sheen so they look extra special? For shiny Easter eggs, rub them with a very light coating of vegetable oil after the dye is dried. I learned this tip from a fellow Los Angeles Times staffer, Anne, who happened to walk by the Test Kitchen last week as we were shooting eggs for our Easter stories running this weekend in the Saturday section. She drizzled a little vegetable oil on a folded paper towel and rubbed it over an egg. The oil gave the dyed egg a glossy sheen.

More than 1,000 hand-packed Easter baskets will be handed out to kids, and adults will receive hygiene kits. Foot washing, which has spiritual and practical significance, will be provided by the Los Angeles Christian Health Centers.

This year is the 50th anniversary of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s decision to violate an injunction forbidding him to pray, sing or march in public in Birmingham, Ala. On Good Friday 1963 (which fell on April 12 that year), King led a march from the 16th Street Baptist Church (where four black children would be killed in a bombing five months later), heading toward City Hall. He was almost immediately arrested, charged with violating a court order and taken to the Birmingham jail.

California is leading a national craft beer explosion. It's home to 12 of the nation's 50 largest craft beer companies, according to the Brewers Assn. trade group. So it's not surprising that some of the country's finest beer is brewed locally. Here are 10 of the best local beers to sample Easter weekend, as selected by Brandon Hernandez, a beer and food journalist, Zagat editor and Stone Brewing Co. communications specialist. The beers are brewed in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Diego counties and would nicely compliment a traditional Easter dinner, Hernandez said.

The young inmates in a Los Angeles County juvenile detention facility are an ocean apart from the most powerful man in the world's largest church. But this week, they were linked in an Easter Week rite of healing and humility 2 millennia old. Pope Francis chose to celebrate Holy Thursday by sinking to his knees to wash and kiss the feet of a dozen youth inmates in an Italian juvenile jail - breaking from the tradition of performing that ritual with priests in the ornate cathedrals of Rome.

Easter Sunday could be on the wet side for Southern California as a low-pressure system moves through the region. The chance of rain is 30% to 50% for Sunday. Morning church services could be affected, but the rain could also hold off until the afternoon, said Kathy Hoxsie, a National Weather Service meteorologist. The rain is not expected to be heavy, but umbrellas might still be needed to protect Easter hats. High temperatures will be in the low to upper 60s, with lows in the mid-50s.

It was Peeps-o-rama on the latest episode of Forkin' Amazing on TradioV ! Hosts Jenn Harris and Dominic Riley were so sweet to have me on their Internet radio show again, and I was happy to dish on all things Peeps. We talked about Food's current story on homemade "peeps," as well as all the things you can do with Peeps. We even talked about what Peeps do on their own ( the "secret life" of Peeps -- sounds just like a Bravo show). But probably the best part was when I plugged in a blender to demonstrate a "peeps-tini.

It's the season for Passover and Easter. Whether you're making haroset or packing Peeps into an Easter basket, there are plenty of good eats happening all week long. During Monday morning's #Weekendeats chat on Twitter, some participants shared festive snacks for both holidays. Here are the highlights: For a fun matzo topper, Shulie Madnick from the blog FoodWanderings.com shared a bright red recipe for horseradish and beet relish . Susan Fishman shared a fun way to eat your Easter eggs with deviled egg baskets . These citrus glazed donuts , shared by the blog 2sense-la.com, aren't technically associated with any holiday, but the pretty pastel-colored icing makes them more than appropriate for any number of occasions.
