So that was the end of our colored eggs. I had much better luck in the pastry department, which is usually the case. I made cute candy carrots to top some of my secret-recipe chocolate cupcakes with chocolate-cream cheese frosting, and served them in egg cartons I had painted in festive colors. I also mixed up a batch of chocolate nests. Both of the above were shared with the crew at John & Kari's house, after a delightful feast of pot roast, baked potatoes, veggies galore, a lovely green salad (Lisa, I need that recipe!) and some tasty holiday punch courtesy of Kimmers. The best part, of course, was the company and the conversation. What's better than spending a holiday with a house full of people you love to pieces? It was a very Happy Easter indeed.
