Easter Day






This Easter Day was spent at our good friends house.
It was a lovely day with lots of sunshine and good food,
our friends made some killer ribs.
(I made sure I got the recipe for that rub!)
I took some deviled eggs, my go to pasta salad and my infamous
carrot cupcakes.
I will share both recipes for the deviled eggs and salad on a later post.

The babies had a blast running non stop all day long, mines the one
in the pink shirt and white pants and he didn't care much for the eggs.
Elijah (the cutie in the plaited shirt) and Him spent all day trying to take
the cars from each other, they wanted the same toys at the same time and
no one was giving in. I wonder if it has to do with them being born on the
same exact day. It was funny watching them interact. 
We thought we weren't going to be able to sit them all down for a picture
but surprisingly we took about 15 before they decided to run away!
I only used a disposable camera that day and I can't wait to get them printed!

The day before Easter was my birthday and I had a little get together
with friends. I made appetizers; slices of quiche, guacamole with chips,
tortellini on skewers with marinara sauce and deviled eggs.
(Those deviled eggs and guacamole were a hit, and that made me happy).
So there was lots of cooking this passed weekend, and that means
I will be sharing some recipes here soon.

Over all I feel thankful for my little family and all the good friends in my life.
Hope Everyone had a lovely Easter.

XOXO

What I've Been Pinning and Making:

cookie: A

I made these.

cookie: B

and these.

They sort of both claim to be the best sugar cookie ever.

To be honest with you they are both a good cookie but
cookie B is by far, waaaaay better and my favorite.

Cookie A's texture is too ugh I don't want to say chewy
because I like chewy! but they were way to soft, I like soft
too but it just didn't feel right. Never the less the flavor was
great and I didn't even get to frost them because they were
all gone in a matter of minutes.

Cookie B though, was absolutely perfect! soft in the center,
crispy on the outside! I also topped them with a cream cheese
icing that was super good and you should totally make these. 
I love that they are almost a hybrid in between a sugar and 
shortbread cookie. I know I will be making them again!

These cabbage and carrot noodles with egg from the New York Times
website. I made them for a picnic with friends and everyone absolutely
loved them. Mom approved and whenever she approves something,
I know it's good!



This cake was also made for the picnic and was a big hit as well!
Since I laid eyes on this baby, I just knew I had to bake it and
I'm so glad I did. It's light and fluffy, citrusy and topped with
sour cream and pecans! I highly recommend, such an easy bake.


XOXO
