Easter Parade: Easter Egg Candies & More

Stick a fork in me, I am done.

Or, for a more Easter-appropriate figure of speech, hard-boil me and dye me. Okay, that one is weird.

Belabored metaphors aside, it's been a long couple of weeks months in the kitchen. I do love the holidays but I am so excited for a break from intensive candy-making/recipe development. Never have I been so glad there is no such thing as "Mother's Day candy recipes." With the end of the big candy holidays I am looking forward to a little more free time to cook for myself, get this blog up and running again, and--best of all!--launch a huge blog redesign. And not a second too soon. This place is a little dusty.

So dusty, in fact, I have a bunch of old photos that never made it into blog posts. These were last week's absolutely delicious strawberry-rhubarb double crisps. Sweet, tangy, with a brown sugar crumble studded with candied ginger, they were seriously good. Too bad they're old news!

You know what's not old news? Passover and Easter goodies! Here are a few things I've made lately that are floating around the internet. Maybe you'll find something to enjoy for your April holiday of choice!
