Look no further for the perfect way to prank your kids, spouse, and friends for April Fools’ Day.
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!
After sending homemade cards for Valentines Day and other holidays, my extended family is awaiting their Easter cards. I decided to use thumb and finger prints to create a bunny and little chicks for our Hoppy Easter card. An easy card that is fun and memorable.
You can make these spring-inspired bird’s nest cupcakes in no time. They look way more complicated than they actually are. I started the actual instructions for just the decorative icing so you’ll want to have cupcakes and icings all ready beforehand.
All you need for this quick project is a few items you may already have around the house. To me this is the best kind of DIY.
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.
I hated our old kitchen. It was small, cramped and outdated. Not only that, the cabinets were crumbling, the wood had water damage and the cabinets were smaller than standard size so they couldn’t fit anything. When we moved into this house, I knew I wanted to change the kitchen but I didn’t know where to begin.
With St. Patrick’s Day here, here’s an easy foolproof recipe. I just love this particular recipe because it is so versatile, you can add any flavor and use any shape cutter to make it suitable for basically any holiday. With only 5 ingredients pretty much anyone can make it.
