Coffee Cake Muffins

 

We just flew back last night from being out in Boston and watching our oldest son, Barry, run the Marathon. What a picture perfect day it was and it was so exciting to see him take part in such a great event. He worked hard to get there. I loved the atmosphere at the race, with everyone cheering total strangers on and people applauding the military and all the "Boston Strong" tee shirts.  I've never seen so many policemen in my life.

Easter Recipes

 

If you are trying to think of some different dishes to fix this Easter, here are a few that you might like.  Some are more ambitious than others to make, but worth the effort.  The Italian Easter Breads are very easy to make and delicious - they are a sweet bread.  The Pesto Eggs are super easy and the Edible Easter Egg Nests are something different that will get the attention of everyone at the table.  They make cute little place setting decorations.  The Italian Easter Pie is definitely a labor of love, if you want to try your hand at it.  Buona Pasqua!

Angel Food Cake with White Whipped Frosting

 

Doesn't this cake look like Spring and/or Easter?   I even thought some Peeps on the top and sides might be cute. I put a little tiny jar in the middle of the cake where the hole is, filled it with water and put in some little rosebuds.  I wish I had some spring flowers to put in the cake but it's just too early here in Michigan.
