Easter treats

Somehow it’s April and Easter is already this weekend. We’re not religious, but we are looking forward to celebrating with baskets of candy, great company and a wonderful meal.

Setting the tone for a day full of sweets, we’ll start the day with these festive cinnamon rolls:

We’ve been assigned dessert for the main meal and I can’t decide what to make! There are too many great ideas! Maybe I’ll make a smorgasbord of items! Yes, that sounds like a great idea. Here are the front runners:

Easter is already here. Where did the time go! We don’t have official plans yet, but they will likely be something like Thanksgiving: I’ll post a blog post about different fun food ideas that I’ve found on Pinterest and my parents, the loyal blog readers that they are, will choose one of those items for our Easter feast.

So, here are my ideas!

Perhaps, an app?

I love me some veggie trays.
