The Weekend Dish

Hello Saturday!

I hope your weekend is off to a fantastic start! We had some crazy snow yesterday, but it looks like it’s going to be warm(er) weather from here on out. Thank goodness! I’m spending the weekend writing tax checks (UGH), doing some cooking and baking (YAY), and snuggling up with my boys (double YAY).

What are you up to? Are you doing any pre-Easter prep or baking? If you need any last-minute ideas, here are some of my Easter favorites:

Homemade Peanut Butter Eggs / Broccoli Salad / Bacon and Cheese Easter Bread / Hummingbird CupcakesItalian Easter Pie / Coconut Cupcakes with Toasted Coconut Frosting / Greek Easter Bread / Grandma’s Fried Dough / Malted Chocolate Cake with Malted White Chocolate Frosting
