Easter Tablescape

Easter arrives this weekend?! March has certainly flown by and brought with it snow and below average temperatures. I’m ready for Spring weather and planning this tablescape helped to get me in a spring break state of mind. I collaborated with my friend and neighbor, Emilie, who blogs at Cookies for England. She recently had…

Cut-Out Cookies

This weekend, my son helped me make Easter cookies to pass out to his teachers. It’s never a bad idea to send food gifts to the educators in your life. For years, I had issues making cut-out cookies; as soon as I tried to roll out the dough problems would ensue. Enter this foolproof recipe,…

Shaving Cream Easter Eggs
