“Easter tells us that life is to be interpreted not simply in terms of things but in terms of ideals.” ~ Charles M. Crowe
Hooray. After a huge 14 hours of sleep I have woken feeling revived, optimistic and ready to cook! We have a CWA Fundraising Cake Stall in Bangalow tomorrow morning, and I am making some Easter treats to contribute. If you’re down our way, holidaying in Byron Bay or heading off to Bluesfest, why not pop in and say hi?
I thought I’d share some of the recipes I’m making. Don’t worry if you’re not an experienced cook – these recipes are EASY, tasty and lots of fun, and there’s plenty of ways to get the kids involved too. Giving home-made treats at Easter is a lovely heart-felt gift.
Or of course you could just eat them all yourself!
Here’s my Best Coconut Ice Recipe – a creamy concoction with the perfect texture and flavour. This has won me many prizes at our local and State Agricultural Shows!
I’ll also be making Homemade Rocky Road which is a simple concoction of chocolate, jellies, marshmallows and nuts – all that is required is a little melting and stirring!
You can’t have Easter without Marshmallow Treats – some pretty eggs for the kids, and a few batches of traditional marhsmallows for the grown ups. This marshmallow recipe is gluten-free and perfect for people who also need dairy free and chocolate free. 🙂
Or you could try your hand at a few batches of sinfully good and incredibly easy Five Minute Fudge, which really does take a mere five minutes to whip up, and probably less time to devour!
I encourage you to give these recipes a try. Hopefully some of them will become an Easter Tradition in your household too.
Much love to you, ♥ Nicole xx
