THE EASTER TABLE, BRUNCH & DESSERT, DESSERT, DESSERT!
Have you thought about setting your Easter Table yet? If not here a some adorable ideas.
I love the cool, spring greens of this one.
If the weather is warm I will definately do something outside. I love this, it just shouts spring and Easter.
This simple country setting is just lovely.
What an Easter fantasy. I would worry about someone swinging my table though.
I don't usually get too fussy with napkins but these little cuties caught my eye. You can get the simple directions here at MARTHA STEWART LIVING.
Now onto the good stuff.
I saw these and my mouth started to water. Can you imagine making these Carrot Cake Waffles for Easter Brunch? I am going to try these and I think they will be a keeper. Get this delicious recipe from WILLOW BIRD BAKING
This Bacon, Egg and Cheese Ring from PILLSBURY.COM is super simple and looks really impressive and I'll bet it is yummy.
There is just something about putting the word "Farmer" in a recipe title that says to me " good stick to your ribs food". This Farmer's Casserole from BETTER HOMES & GARDENS says that to me. I love making casseroles. Everything in one pan.
I have made these cute birdie cupcakes several times and they always get a lot of oohs and aahs. I saw them years ago in Martha Stewart Living Magazine. They are so easy. Just ice your cupcake, toast some coconut and put it on the edges of the cupcake. With a wide pastry tip pipe some blue balls of icing and make tiny eyes with black or chocolate icing and use a leaf tip for the beak. So Cute!
One of my favourite desserts is Coconut Cream Pie. Now, I am a baker but for some reason I have never made one. I found this recipe from DOUGH PUNCHER BLOG and it sounds so good that I think that this will be either my Easter Dessert or with my birthday being April 12th, my Birthday Pie instead of cake. My husband may not like that but it is my birthday after all.
I hope you try some of these delicious recipes whether for Easter or for whatever and let me know how they turned out. And stop by my blog WICKEDFAERIEQUEEN to see how I decorated my house for Easter.
I am proud of my Canadian, Norwegian and British heritage, it greatly influences my art and the way I decorate my 235 year old farmhouse. I am a vegan earth mother living in Canada. My passion is my family, my furry darlings and my art. I do all that I can for the welfare of all creatures great and small. I live a life that I fill with magic, blessings and bliss for myself and my loved ones.
