Easter Goodies

This year I made traditional Easter Bread for the first time. It was a lengthy process, but well worth it! It came out really well! The recipe instructed to make two of the rings, but in the spirit of saving a few eggs, I made one ring and one loaf. The loaf is supposed to be glazed and sprinkled with, well sprinkles, but in these pictures the bread had just come out of the oven. The cool thing about this recipe is that you dye the eggs raw and they bake with the bread!

(It was after 11:00 PM. I was exhausted!)

I also a had a last minute inspiration to made these Easter Basket cupcakes for dessert on Sunday. We had to run to a few stores to find the "baskets," but they are so cute! (And so yummy!)

(The cupcakes were also our centerpiece!)

Lest you think we only ate junk for dinner, I also made ham, potatoes, creamy carrot casserole, and green bean supreme! My mom, dad, and sister joined us for the first holiday dinner in our new home. We had a great time despite the blowing wind and snow.
