Easter Weekend

Hey y'all! It's a beautiful Saturday in Indiana! The high is suppose to be 67 degrees but it's a bright and sunny day - I love days like this! B and I are getting ready to pack up Nevaeh and Moby to go enjoy some family time with B's mom side of the family. Every year we get together to dye easter eggs, play games, eat a delicious pre-easter meal and have a blast. His mom gives prizes for egg decorating (prettiest, most creative, etc) I can't wait - I am determined to win a prize this year! Every family function I am in charge of the sweets - I love to bake so I don't mind. I made some quick and easy recipes this time, I can't wait to see which ones everyone likes.

Oreo Bon Bon's

Lemon Poppy Seed Cupcakes

Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

Check back on Monday because I will be posting the Oreo Bon Bon recipe along with my quick and easy Lemon Poppy Seed Cupcake recipe. I forgot to take pictures of the snickerdoodle cucpakes as I was making them but I will still post the recipe without pictures.

I hope everyone has a great Easter weekend!

I would love to hear  about your Easter traditions? Any egg dying contest? Do you cook/bake anything special? Do you plan any large gatherings or easter egg hunts?


  1. OMG! That sounds like so much fun!! I am jealous! We never did much, we always dyed eggs, and had the egg hunt, and kites were always in the easter basket.
    We didn't do anything special this year, just egg dying and the hunt (that the boys LOVED). Next year I want to do resurection cookies with the boys, and another yummy treat! Later today we will be making deviled eggs! MMMMMMM
    Can't wait to see your recipies!!

    1. I remember when I was a kid my mom made all holidays a huge deal - especially Easter and Christmas. My favorite memories are dying Easter eggs and cooking with my mom. So, when I learned that Brian's family always got together to dye eggs with the kids I was so excited.

      I have never flown a kite - I need to add that to my bucket list :)
