This Easter

Today chez English we feasted on Asparagus & Feta Quiche (the recipe's in here!), my "cleaned up" version of the southern fruit salad known as Ambrosia, and Ree Drummond's Hot Cross Buns (with homemade candied orange peel and currants tucked inside). Huxley plundered brightly colored eggs, courtesy of his great-grandmother, after which we gorged on seasonal peppermint creme, coconut creme and peanut butter-filled chocolate chicks from my most beloved chocolatiers.

Bellies and hearts are full, another Easter enjoyed in the company of those I hold so very dear. May your day be equally filled with love, laughter and abundance.

Sounds like a great Easter! We celebrated by getting our first batch of chicks in this morning! I wanted to thank you for "Keeping Chickens". It is a great resource.

mmmm, sounds delicious! i'm curious what your "cleaned up" version of ambrosia is?

For my ambrosia, I omitted marshmallows, canned clementine oranges and canned pineapple, as well as artificially colored maraschino cherries. Instead, I used fresh pineapple, tangerines, shredded coconut, bananas, kiwi chunks, all-natural maraschino cherries, pecan pieces and unsweetened yogurt. SO good!
