I'm feeling VERY sweet this week, and happy to be joining Cuisine Kathleen's "Let's Dish". We have sooooo many sweet treats sitting on the kitchen counter right now, that I better plan on exercising ALL of next week. Friends, neighbors, co-workers and students are so kind and generous during Easter week and all throughout the year. I just looked and we have braided Easter bread, cute pastel cookies (picture below), huge peanut butter cookies with white chocolate chips, peanut turtles with Easter sprinkles, and Easter Cassata which I put in the fridge. It's a sweet and happy house, and I'm loving it!
Wegman's had chocolate hens so they came home with me. Using silicone cupcake molds with a cupcake liner, I made some Easter treats by melting good quality chocolate and peanut butter, and then stirred in some Fiber One cereal to make the nests. Added a few candy eggs for decoration, and let them firm up a bit.
You can barely see the little cutie, but there is a polka dotted chick egg cup holder in the terrarium which is the centerpiece for our table for two. Joe gifted me with the terrarium many years ago, and it makes a versatile centerpiece. I use it like a cloche.
I know Cuisine Kathleen will notice that I switched out the plates in this photo below. I just couldn't decide.
The moss bunnies at Pier One were begging me to take them home, so I adopted four of them over the weekend.
Fuzzy and cute for vases :-)
Our table for two this week has green striped chargers purchased from the Christmas Tree Shoppe (several years ago), and I haven't seen them since. I added green egg shaped green polka dot plates from Walmart to use for the dessert.
