I hope last Easter weekend was wonderful for all of you. We had such a yummy day! Everything from breakfast to the evening’s dessert was divine. Here’s a little bit of what our day looked like! Enjoy.
For breakfast I made Cadbury Banana Muffins, recipe found here (I just substituted the chocolate chips for Cadbury Eggs!) I just couldn’t help myself… these chocolate morsels only come around once a year!
When I saw a recipe for Blackberry Limeaid on Pinterest I just had to try it out. It turned out to be amazing! And bonus, blackberries were on sale this week at Sunflower Farmer’s Market! Everyone enjoyed it. Perfect combination of sweet and tart. Yum Yum! The recipe is found here.
Dinner menu was as follows: Roasted Herb Marinated Chicken, Sauted Spinach and Shallots, Parmesan Couscous, and Olympic Salad. It flowed together flawlessly. (I’ll have you know this was the first time I’ve ever cut and roasted a whole chicken, and I have to say… I did a fabulous job…. thanks to my mom for the advice on that, it turned out perfectly moist.)
For the above mentioned Olympic Salad I used Quinoa noodles, and it turned out just as good as using wheat. I’ll post the recipe if anyone is interested. It’s my older brother’s favorite salad. Delicious!
We saved the best for last. Let me introduce the “mini bunny fruit pizza bar”… (Pinterest was the inspiration on this one too, I just added the festive bunny/carrot shapes. I found the bunny/ carrot cookie cutter at Target for anyone wanting to know for future refrences) My son loved helping make this!
The frosting was divine. The lemon juice and zest it called for sure did make it springy! The recipe for the frosting is found here. I added 1/4 cup plain Chobani yogurt to the recipe for some added protein and creaminess. It was light, refreshing and a perfect ending to a perfect and yummy day!
