Warm & Delicious Hot Cross Buns (With Video)

This traditional recipe originated from the 1600’s, with very simple ingredients it’s not as difficult as many people believe. The most difficult part is the preparation time required for this fabulous holiday treat. Although the name for Hot Cross Buns was commonly known as Good Friday Buns for nearly a hundred years, during the 1730’s the buns were starting to be sold on the streets, and therein the name as well as the popular rhyme emerged, as the sellers would shout out” One-a-penny, two-a-penny, hot-cross buns “… a penny for a larger bun or for two smaller ones. Hot Cross buns are hands down one of my all time favorite baked goods. I make them at least six times a year, if not more. Happy Easter!

Mini Fruit Pizzas That Are Totally Kid-Friendly

I love having my kids involved in the kitchen and with food as much as possible! It is a fun way to spend time as a family and allow our kids to learn in various ways (even if they are only 1 and 2). We decided to make Fruit Pizzas, which allowed us to talk about different fruits, colors, and shapes! The kids were able to decorate their own fruit pizzas and loved every minute of it. The combination of a soft and buttery cookie with a creamy frosting and juicy fruit is all sorts of amazing.
