Easter Treats

Afternoon, everyone!  It is an absolutely GORGEOUS day in NJ.  Lots of sunshine and SLIGHTLY warmer temps.  Holy very UN-Good Friday.  I remember all the Good Fridays when I was a kid being rainy & gloomy.  Or maybe it was what the Catholic school nuns made us envisionJ  Either way, I'm ready to break out all my pastel-y Easter Bunnies tomorrow to get ready to celebrate.  And speaking of celebrate, here are some great recipes to make for Easter day or all spring long!

Anddd the Healthy Breakfast:  Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal
"Cake" for breakfast?  Ummm...OK!

Make Ahead breakfast:  Pina Colada Stuffed Waffles
Just make up some coconut flavored waffles.  Whip some cream cheese with coconut, coconut extract & pineapple.  Layer the 2 and bake until warm in the morning!

Our Traditional Easter meal:  Homemade Ravioli

My Mom, Katie & I will be whipping these up tomorrow.  Or at least Katie will be helping outJ  Here she was "helping" at Christmas this past year...


Perfect way to use up an abundance of leftover Peeps:  Peeps Rice Krispie Treats

Anyone else ONLY like STALE PEEPS, like me??

Give yourself a minute to make this one!:  Lemon Curd Crepe Cake

And if you want to make something in 10 seconds:  Super Easy Lemon Ice Box Cake
Perfect for ALL dessert the next few months!

The Ultimate Decadent Carrot Cake:  Sweet & Salty Ultimate Carrot Cake
My God, this thing is GOOD!

Carrot Cake on the 'lighter side':  Weight Watchers Carrot Cake

LOVE me some Lemon AND Coconut:  Lemon Glazed Coconut Bars

A Unique Twist with fresh herbs:  Lemon Thyme Bars
Great for summer when thyme is CHEAP and abundant at the farmer's marketJ

Well, that's all I have for you today!  I'll be back Monday with our holiday wrap-up!  Have a wonderful weekend & holiday, everyone!
