Easter Cupcakes and a Breakfast Casserole I made on Saturday (recipes will follow another day)
I am hosting Easter Brunch this year for my family, so I’ve been trying to put together a menu and decide on how to decorate cupcakes. This weekend was all about playing around with recipes. I made strawberry cupcakes with vanilla frosting, and topped them with cute little egg baskets. I think they turned out well, but I’m still not sure if this is what I want to serve for Easter Sunday. Maybe I can make bunny cupcakes or ones with flowers? I don’t know. At this point, I think I am just confusing myself. I love hosting holidays and parties, but I am one of those people who puts too much stress on myself to impress. I don’t want to serve decent food. I want to serve GREAT food. I don’t want to serve regular cupcakes. I want to serve AMAZING cupcakes. My friend and I threw a Christmas party about 5 years ago and people actually thought we had the food catered, but I made all the food myself. I was in the kitchen all day cooking up a storm, and by the time the party started…I was exhausted. LOL
I am trying to keep myself under control this time and not go overboard. I am also trying to test recipes in advance so I know what I like and don’t like, and so I have an idea of how long the recipes take me to make. In addition to making cupcakes this weekend, I also threw together a breakfast casserole. I didn’t use a recipe. I’ve read so many breakfast casserole recipes over the past few weeks that I just made a recipe up. I didn’t think it out. I simply opened up my fridge and started pulling stuff out. Thankfully, it was delicious. My husband was impressed, which always makes me happy.
All in all, I think I had a pretty successful test run, but I am still researching recipes to come up with the perfect menu. I’m not putting up the recipes yet, but I will post them later this week. This post really isn’t about sharing the recipes I used this weekend, but about finding the perfect recipes.
What’s your favorite Easter recipe? If you have one, please share. I would love to hear recipes from other people. Feel free to post your recipes in the comments, or go to my facebook fan page to post it. I hope to hear from some of you.
