Jelly Bean Cookies

I was asked by Brach’s Candy Company to develop an Easter recipe with some of their yummy seasonal candies.  These cookies will not disappoint the jelly bean lover in your life, that’s for sure! The cookie dough itself is light and whipped, quite buttery tasting, despite the lack of butter, and very similar to a… Continue reading Jelly Bean Cookies

Cinnabunnies

How completely cute are these Cinnabunnies you guys? It has been a big day around here.  We went to  meet the Easter Bunny at the mall this afternoon.  As you can see, 1 year old Phoebe was not a fan. In fact, an entire hour later she was still traumatized and giving me the stink… Continue reading Cinnabunnies

Easter Bunny Pancakes. Simple Pleasures.

Did you know that if you plant jelly beans in your yard, lollipops will grow in their place? It’s true, just ask my kids.  It only works the week of Easter, though. Easter is kind of a big deal around here.  Since we do a brunch over at my sister-in-law’s house on Easter morning, and… Continue reading Easter Bunny Pancakes. Simple Pleasures.

Hot Cross Buns (tasty ones)

I’ve been thinking of adding a Hot Cross Buns recipe to my blog around Easter time for years, but one thing has stopped me: Made the traditional way, I just don’t really like them. My family is mostly English and Irish.  The English are some of my favorite people.  They have delightful accents, but are not necessarily… Continue reading Hot Cross Buns (tasty ones)
