Nothing says Easter like fresh Spring flowers, yummy treats and kiddos running around outside searching for hidden eggs. I love Easter, especially since having kids.
Spring used to be my least favorite season, growing up in Washington the season was generally full of rain. While stores filled with brightly colored items from home decor to clothes, it never felt quite warm enough to embrace the season. However, it has now become one of my favorite times of year. I have come to appreciate the rain. It has given us nice green grass, flowers blooming in the garden and when we do get those sunny Spring days, nothing is more beautiful than this place I call home.
For this past Easter we decided to host a potluck style brunch again, which is my favorite, and everyone else seems to really enjoy it as well. Love all the breakfast goodies mixed with the yummy treats!
Stacked banana muffins on cake plates and added some cute Easter toppers. Mini pancakes with cute toppers for the kiddos to enjoy.
Sugar cookies that all the kids couldn't wait to sink their teeth into. Who am I kidding? I love these as much as they do! Best recipe ever and super easy instructions, recipe from Eat More Dessert by Jenny Keller. Highly recommend it!
I tried my hand at making homemade cinnamon rolls. They were so good, I can't even begin to describe the deliciousness of these perfectly gooey cinnamon treats. I used the recipe from The Slow Roasted Italian Blog.
