Trix Marshmallow Bars

With flowers starting to bloom and trees starting to bud, I’ve been enjoying the spring color outside. And it put me in the mood to make something colorful! I saw some Trix Marshmallow Bars at BettyCrocker.com and just had to try them out! I had forgotten how fun and colorful Trix cereal was–after all, I hadn’t had it since I was a kid. Continue reading

The Hope of Easter

Wishing you a beautiful Easter filled with hope, joy, and celebration!

I am, right now, Resurrection and Life. The one who believes in Me, even though he or she dies, will live. And everyone who lives believing in Me does not ultimately die at all.

Easy Egg Nest Cupcakes

Here’s a super-easy Easter treat you can make, and the kids can help out with this, too! These Easy Egg Nest Cupcakes are so, so easy to make because you use cake mix for the cupcakes and a ready-made container of frosting. They’re decorated with either chocolate frosting with chocolate sprinkles, or vanilla frosting with green-tinted sweetened coconut flakes. The sprinkles and the tinted coconut flakes give the cupcake tops a nest-like appearance. And they’re topped with your choice of mini robin eggs, speckled mini chocolate eggs, or speckled jelly beans.

I took the photo above of the cupcakes with some cute little plush toys for Mary & Martha Home, showing the cupcakes on the new Simply Elegant Dessert Pedestal. This serving piece has a ceramic top that says, “Made with love…served with joy!” and it also has a beautiful acacia wood pedestal that twists off for easy storage. The plush are also from Mary&Martha: a cuddly, sweet elephant, bunny, and giraffe! Continue reading
