Easter Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies

I love Easter so much.  It is one of my favorite holidays.  I love the egg hunts, and playing Easter Bunny, and having brunch with family, dyeing eggs, decorating, and making cookies and cinnamon rolls.

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)
