Phew, what a ride.  Two months and counting!

I’ve been posting pictures and a few stories on my baby blog (link in sidebar, below) – but I should be back to posting a few recipes here before too long.  How about Carmelized Banana Cake with Bourbon and Pecans? Lemon Lime Icebox Pie?  Uh huh.  Send Chloe some good “long nap” vibes, and we’ll get something posted soon!

Easter and Passover Links


Its Friday, it’s 5pm, and I am officially done with the Easter chocolate biz for this year–phew!!  Now I’m ready to actually think about my own Easter, and all the things I would like to be doing but probably will not have time for . . .

Like dying Easter eggs the natural way . . .

Or decorating some super cute cupcakes . . .

Or whipping up some swoon worthy chocolate draped macaroons . . .

Or waking up to the only kind of hot cross buns that might be worth the effort, if only someone would bake them for me.

However, I think I’m going to have to make some matzo crack(ers), because it’s Deb, and because they really are that good.  And if I do it tomorrow, I won’t even have to share, since my husband will be gone all day.  Maybe, if I have the energy, I’ll make him these as a consolation prize.  Or maybe I won’t share those either.

Time to pour the wine and ponder what a Saturday off, with no husband, and a clean kitchen, might bring me . . . pure bliss!
