For me, it finally starts to feel like spring when Easter rolls around. Everything’s awash in pastel colors, the weather is (hopefully) warming, and fresh spring foods take the menu: asparagus, lamb, berries. This year, I decided to bring together my love for great food and creative crafts with these little Easter projects:
Sweet Easter Treats
Everyone loves a good Easter egg hunt, right? There’s the spring sunshine, the thrill of the hunt, and best of all, the eggs! Filled with chocolate or coins, they’re a small but sweet award. Imagine if your next Easter basket looked like this after the hunt:
Beautiful! But let’s take a closer look.
These aren’t your ordinary Easter eggs. They’re egg-shaped Anjou pears! Decorated with a careful hand and some sugary cake frosting, these pears become even sweeter. They’d be delicious sliced and shared with the family – even better if the decoration was done in chocolate!
Here’s another twist on a classic Easter dish.
Swap out the hard-boiled egg for a ripe Anjou pear, fill the core with golden raisins or mincemeat, and sprinkle with cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg. Ta-da! An Easter tradition, transformed.
How are you getting creative with your menus and crafts this spring?
