Tips for prepping Easter eggs

colorful dyed eggs

 Dying Easter eggs – perhaps second only to eating lots of Easter chocolate – is one of the most fun parts of the holiday. It’s something that the family can do together, or a fun art project for kids. Typically, you need to start with hard boiled eggs when dying. Raw eggs can be used, but they’re a bit more fragile than hard-boiled eggs and ... Read More »

Cadbury Creme Egg Muffins

Cadbury Creme Egg Muffins

 Chocolate is a staple in any baker’s kitchen. Chocolate chips, chocolate chunks, white chocolate – and from the standard baking fare, it is not a big leap to move onto other chocolate candies. I’ve used chocolate malt balls, peanut butter cups and chocolate covered toffees before, amongst other things. While you can cook with a lot of different types of candies, some are always overlooked for ... Read More »

Cadbury Mini Eggs, Dark and Milk Chocolate, reviewed

Cadbury Mini Eggs have long been an Easter staple in my house. I prefer them even to the ever popular Cadbury Creme Eggs, which are nice, but can be a bit too sweet for me with all that gooey fondant in the center.

If you are going to be dying eggs, the easiest way to go is to use store bought dye kits, which to save time and make plain, but brightly colored eggs. My preference ... Read More »

Lemon Buttermilk Easter Cookies

Everything about Easter – especially if the displays the retailers put up are to be believed – should be cute cute, from the miniature candies to decorated eggs to the abundance of adorably fluffy bunnies everywhere. Bunnies are so popular at this time of year that you can not only find their images on packaging and stuffed animals in every store, but you can find their ... Read More »

Peeps S’Mores

Like so many others, I am more than happy to eat Peeps – those deliciously sugar-coated, brightly colored holiday marshmallows – raw, especially around Easter when Just Born puts out their traditional yellow chicks and purple bunnies. These days, they put out quite a few more colors, more shapes and more flavors (like the Cocoa Bunnies), as well as offering a sugar-free Peep, but in ... Read More »
