Come down the bunny trail with me for April♥
All the pics tell a story..
About how I do love to bake for Easter..
This year..I am not hosting..we have a 50th..how could a son-in-law of mine be 50?Egads.
Anyways..I loved making all of the above..
the latest...the madeleines..
I love making madeleines and I love eating them..yes.. a dessert..me!
More than macarons..
Expect moist ..immediately..then they become drier..but perfectly drier if you get what I mean..
Not quite as beautiful as macarons..but look..dress them up and you're almost there:)
In Provence even the packaged ones are wonderful.
What you want when you bake is a bump:)
I am still using a very pliable soft silicone mold ..9 cavities..I bought 100 yrs ago at a Christmas Tree Shop..it sits on it's own rack to stay put.
Naysayers say..nay to silicone..look for yourselves.
Beaux et Bons. Point final.
The lamb is a Susan Branch recipe ..my mold is a vintage EBAY purchase another 100 yrs ago;)
Cupcakes w/ Peter Rabbit cases and toppers..Meri Meri .
Little bunnies sitting on cookies:)
Sugar cookies w/ edible Peter Rabbit wafer paper..an Ebay UK purchase.
A WS huge egg sugar cookie cutter:)
Part of my PR collection:)
I have a few more..:)
My favorite tea cozy comes out:) Repeat performance♥
I did not make it..Kathleen made me this one..2 McKenzie Childs look alikes and a floral one.She's amazing.
Lots of other Easter treats here in there through the years..
I can't believe I brought a few larger Easter decorations to Nova..
not because I do not love the cause..but because our Littles..are Bigs now :(
I was very happy that one of our daughter's..Mylène..took my 3 big plush bunnieson stands for her Kindergarten class..turns out.. there are 3 K classes so each class has a bunny.:)
I caved in..and bought..soon to be here.. a Nordic Ware Bunny Cakelet pan..I was assured it would be here before Easter so all 6 will get at least one bunny cake.
I'll post after!
I believe..that all one can want for your children and grandchildren..is for them to be caring..happy people.Above all else..healthy.I would hate to see any of them suffer.
I think it's great to be proud..
and I have always been..
but once in a while..pride aside..
as A.Warhol said.."you get 15 minutes of fame".
I do remember mine..the one that came later in life ..
and it was just ok.
I really thought..:"Is that all there is my friend"?
My girls were teens..had no idea..my husband is not into accolades and pride..and that is a virtue..
well..I had it.. and it's nothing. To me.
I was more excited when I won a radio contest w/ an essay I wrote about why I had the best mom..for Mother's day.
She won an all inclusive weekend in a swank Montréal hotel..and took her sister:)
Pampered..She was never pampered.
I think it was CFOX radio station;)Not the current one..the one when I was a teen.
So..oh lala all this to say..I never had anyone be super excited about things that I surprisingly did well at one point..
All my Littles are loving..happy lovely ones..even our 2 special additions..
But Max..LOL Max..we looked ..at all and had our thoughts..
Max was the least adroit growing up..
I thought he would be an intellectual..an artist..and loved him for that..
and the sports entered all their worlds..
and this happened..
Max is Latendresse..
Here is a link to a Youtube video the Montreal Alouettes posted.
I love it.
Just this past week.
You have no idea ..the practices.. the leaving Florida to fly to Edmonton..for the Canadian eliminations..
Both his dad and he..
The hard work.
Just had to share because he is happy..about all this and will have wonderful mamories..more than my visit to Magic Tom Auburn on TV;)
Have a wonderful Easter.
I have had my fill of looking at past Easters on my humble blog since 2009.
Tears..just looking back..
So tiny..growing up so fast.
These children ♥♥
