I made these cupcakes for Jack's school Easter party. They are supposed to be bunnies disappearing into their garden rabbit holes. The only thing that took a lot of time was covering the circus peanut feet with marshmallow, because I couldn't find white circus peanuts.
Easter is one of those holidays that I try not to go overboard with my cooking plans. We are always at church in the morning, and everyone comes home famished! My parents came over for dinner, and they put the ham in the oven for me. They also brought a salad and dessert. We had a great time with our springtime menu!
Easter 2009 Menu
Ham with Blackberry Mustard Glaze (recipe here) I subbed a spiral sliced ham twice the size called for in the recipe, and I used pineapple juice instead of apple juice. If you use a five-pound ham as the recipe calls for, you can make 1/2 the glaze.
Crash Hot Potatoes
Broccoli Salad (made by parents)
Multigrain and Sourdough Bread with Butter (store-bought! the shame!)
Fruit Salad (kid-friendly banana, pineapple, apple, and grapes)
Barefoot Contessa's Roasted Vegetable Orzo Salad
Carrot Cake (made by parents)
