Easter Treat Roundup

I love this time of year!  We were luck to have a very mild Winter this year so the Spring flowers have been blooming for many, many weeks already, and the herons are nesting in the park across the street.  I am turning my kitchen efforts to Easter this week and sharing some fun and tasty Easter treats with you today.  An Easter Treat Roundup.

And yes, I will be coloring eggs for The Captain shortly.  This is something I have been doing since I was a child and I love to see a bowl or basket filled with colored hardboiled eggs on the table or countertop. Even when we were out cruising on the sailboat all those years, I made sure to color some eggs for The Captain. They are one of his favorite snacks.  And they are bright and cheerful too… on days when Spring storms seem to linger, especially!

If you aren’t sure how to get started doing them yourself, here are a couple of ideas:
