Happy Easter!


This may reach some of you a bit late because having to go into work on the weekend to use the computer is on the bottom of my list most days, but lucky for me I had to come into work this weekend, so I was able to actually post this on Easter! So for those of you that celebrate, Happy, happy Easter to you!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend full of delicious delights!

These were two of my Easter projects - coloring eggs (I did those top ones just for you...don't you feel special? Good. Because you are!) and an attempt to make Peeps with my very good friend Kristin. (Hi Kristin!)

Kristin and I were attempting to make these. You're supposed to make marshmallow 'batter' and then pipe them out into cute little Easter shapes, then cover them with superfine sugar and colored luster dust. Yes, these are our two best ones (in case you can't tell, that's a bunny rabbit on the left and a chick on the right), and no they don't have eyes, but we had a wonderfully sticky, messy fun time anyway! We discovered that we are most certainly NOT Martha Stewart, and we wouldn't want to be either! We ended up just making regular marshmallows - my recipe is here - and cutting out fun shapes with cookie cutters. Maybe next year is the year of the Peeps...

Couldn't you have dressed up LB as a bunny and let him hold the eggs?? I would have enjoyed that (LB less but who cares...)!!

Paz, thanks!

Ilva, I've been banned from putting up funny pictures of LB - apparently a few people we work with have found the other one of him in red spandex!! I'll see what I can do for future holidays, though!!

I just love your Peeps. I would bite their little heads off anytime. Why oh why can't you live closer so we can do this together? Those are just too cute and you seem to have too much spare time on your hands! lol!!!!!
