32 Easter Treats “Everybunny” Will Love

32 Easter Treats "Everybunny" Will Love ~ Most of this past winter I have longed for the warmer days of spring. Finally, the snow is now melting and the temperatures are starting to rise. I even heard some brave birds chirping this morning! Maybe, just maybe, spring will actually arrive this year! Other than the snow melting, the days becoming longer and the temperatures moderating, even though the calendar says differently, to me Easter marks the "official" arrival of spring. I remember … [Read more...]

An Easter Story About Rabbits and Eggs

Happy Easter! Photo credit: Simply Viola via Visual Hunt / CC BY-NC-SA Don’t panic, but Easter is right around the corner.

~ CLOSED ~ It’s Springtime at Hallmark {w/Giveaway}

Compared to last years EPIC WINTER, this year, here on the east coast we have escaped relatively unscathed.

I have noticed a few perennials cautiously poking their heads through the soil and just today I heard a robin singing. (Trust me, they were NOT singing last year!) I am so happy Spring officially arrives in one week. I … [Read more...]

No-Bake, Easter Egg Nests

I have made the basic recipe for what I know as "Frogs" for as long as I can remember.  I think some people refer to these cookies as Chocolate Macaroons, but to me they will always be "Frogs".  How or why they came to have that name escapes me; they are not green, greenish or frog shaped. I have made them special for Easter by pushing three candy coated chocolate eggs into each cookie, forming a little chocolate nest. What these cookies are, is delicious mounds of chocolate that can be … [Read more...]

~ CLOSED ~ Spring Has Arrived at Hallmark {w/Giveaway}

Even though Spring officially begins in six days, it certainly doesn't look or feel like Spring is even close to happening her in the eastern part of Canada.  This winter we have had close to twelve feet of snow, most of it falling in the last seven weeks!  And cold…we have been smashing records for cold temperatures too.  All in all, it was an epic winter and it is not over yet.  We have a blizzard warning today with up to 40 cm of additional snow in the forecast! I guess there is absolutely … [Read more...]
