Happy Easter

Hope everyone is celebrating this joyous holiday!
We got together with family on Good Friday so here's a few things to share from our celebration.

I usually bring the desserts (no surprise there). I kept it simple because it seems like everyone is cutting down on their sugar consumption. Cupcakes...

Raspberry cheesecake and Peanut Butter Cheesecake in a JAR!

I will post this recipe once I perfect it. Everyone thought it was delicious (I didn't bring any home) but I found it a bit rich. Everyone loved the portion control, though.

We made a bunch of sugar cookies during March Break but alas, they never made to Easter dinner.
Kudos to my 11 year old cousin, Maddie,  who made up an Adult Egg Hunt. She printed out slips of paper and hid them inside plastic eggs and we all had to find 3 each hidden in the house. She designed it kind of like, Roll up the Rim (Canadian Rite of Spring at Tim Horton's), some were "try again", some were for Lindt chocolates, some were for prize of your choice including packets of gum, Tim's Cards and Bath and Body Works soap etc. What a creative idea. We all enjoyed it very much.
