Easter fever…

Now that Valentine’s Day is behind us, it’s time to prepare for the next chocolate extravaganza–Easter! Get out your bonnets, think about decorating those eggs (especially the stunning Ukranian ones), and start planning your big dinner party now. Let’s get going girls…

I came across an excellent Ukrainian easter egg decoration demo on The Artisan Woman. A very dear family friend taught me how to do these eggs when I was a teenager, and I absolutely loved it. Once you have the right materials (e.g., bees wax, wax pen, etc.), it’s really quite straightforward, but it takes a lot of time, so get going.

Ina Garten’s Barefoot Contessa Asparagus with Hollandaise will definitely end up on my Easter dinner table. We love to grill our asparagus and then slather it in sauce or lemon juice. If you’d like the recipe, just click on the picture and it will take you right to the Contessa’s website.

  1. I love the new apron Jennifer. Am wearing it tonight and will make sure I tell all my guests where I got it from! Thankyou!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I’m trying to figure out how I can work in a bouquet on my head…. I am mostly found in my natural habitat wearing jeans. Maybe this is something that I’ll pursue in the summer, when I am painting on my porch. People passing by can watch the artist wearing a bouquet. đŸ™‚
