Today we celebrated Easter with the family and had a lovely day. Even the weather cooperated! And although the oldest grandchildren are nearly 21 years old they protested quite loudly when Grandma suggested ending the annual Easter Egg Hunt. Since Grandma still enjoys preparing the hunt and the kids love searching, the tradition continues, but with a slight twist this year: instead of a treat, one of the eggs had a chore that needed to be done. After a great deal of laughter, most of the kids were good sports and did their part by setting the table or helping with the dishes. A few snuck out without following through, but Grandma knows who they are!
In honor of chocolate bunnies I thought I’d share This Little Bunny Can Bake by Janet Stein. Little Bunny is not an Easter Bunny and he doesn’t deliver eggs, but he sure can bake! And a lot of what he bakes involves chocolate, which is an Easter favorite. Recipes adorn the endpapers. Check it out if you are interested in making any of the following:
|Frozen Banana Pops|
|Milk Chocolate Truffles|
|Petit Cream Cheese Tarts|
|Crunchy Rice Pistachio Bricks|
|Crazy Coconut Lime Macaroons|
Happy reading and happy eating!
