   Easter was a big hit!! The food and family were great.  It was a lovely day. My sister, Rochelle, and her husband, Mark, bought this whoopie pie cake in Rockland at an Irving Station. It was massive. It was the hit of the dinner. Just look at it as it sits majestically on our dessert/appetizer table.
Just look at that whoopie pie!
   Another hit was the little tartlet like quiche that I made from a recipe my sister-in-law, Charlotte, sent to me after telling me how easy they are to make. She was right. It didn't take me any time to make them. You cook angel hair spaghetti and then put a little into your mini muffin wells. Then you mix up egg, cream, and parmesan cheese and pour that into the wells ,too- just up to the top. I added little bacon bits as well. You could really add whatever bits you wanted. They came our perfect. Thanks, Charlotte for the recipe. It's a keeper.
Little quiches before cooking.
After cooking....Yum...


    I guess I am collecting bunnies. But only cute little bunnies. There are some scary looking bunnies out there. I found this little brown one before Easter when I was out "junking". He just looked perfect on our Easter table.
He's a cutie.
   Well, I don't have any pictures of my latest project because I forgot to take pictures of it. It is a birthday mini-album for my sister, Phillis. She has a birthday this month and I wanted to send something special to her 'cause we won't be seeing her. So I made this mini -album. I am bummed I didn't take pictures of it to show you.
  So Phillis, when you get it would you take pictures of it and send it to me so I can put it on my blog? Or you can put it on Facebook and I can get pics of it from there.
   Well, I am writing this blog on the morning we are heading out for New Jersey to my brother's house. We are flying out Saturday morning for Jacksonville, Florida. From there we are going on a 5 day cruise to the Bahamas. We are cruising on the Carnival Ship called Fascination.
    This is my very first cruise. I am a little nervous with all the problems they have been having with their other ships. So pray our trip is a smooth trip. I am looking forward to some warm beach weather and seeing new sights. I will not be blogging on this trip 'cause it costs 45 cents a minute. I can't type fast enough to not have it cost us an arm and a leg. So I will be posting about the trip when we get back.
  I hope the weather here improves so that we will be coming back to a warmer climate. I just love Spring. Happy Spring to you all .....
My son, Nathaniel, and his fiance, Kristin's, new dog, Chloe.

  1. Wishing you and Russ a wonderful cruise. I can't help but want that easy tartlet quiche recipe. Don't they look yummy. Of course, I would not use bacon bits! See you soon. E.
