Weekly Rewind~Easter Edition

easter rewind

Are you excited for Easter weekend? I know my kids sure are! This week’s rewind is all about Easter. I’ve included both vegan foods as well as some other cute stuff I found around the internet. For even more Easter themed fun, check out my Easter Pinterest Board!

Easter-Zombie

How cute is this guy? This zombie-style Easter bunny plush by HenryStMartin is a humorous addition to your Easter collection. You buy the zombie plush separately, but to add an Easter holiday touch to it, you can buy the zombie’s costume for $12 + shipping.

Easy-Easter-Hats

Super cute, super easy hats for your kids (or kid at heart)! Head on over to One Perfect Day for complete instructions and a free template!

peanut butter egg

Who doesn’t love chocolate and peanut butter? Check out this awesome vegan peanut butter egg from Sjaak’s Organic. Yum, yum!

bunny

Look, it’s a vegan bunny and eggs! Allison’s Gourmet doesn’t disappoint with this adorable vegan chocolate bunny speckled with rice crisps and flavored solid chocolate eggs.

savory-shortbread

These savory herbed shortbread with pesto filled thumbprints from Glue and Glitter sound like the perfect Easter appetizer to me.

avocado-soup

Avocados are a staple in all vegan diets and this Chilled Avocado Soup from She Knows Vegan looks amazing!

lasagna

I don’t think that lasagna is a traditional Easter dinner but it should be! This Vegan Lasagna with Basil Cashew Cheeze from Oh She Glows is incredible! My omnivore family devoured the whole pan.

risotto

I’ve always been intimidated by risotto, especially after watching Hell’s Kitchen and hearing Gordon Ramsay yelling at the chefs every. episode. that the risotto is CRAP! However, Jackie from Vegan Yack Attack assures me that this Asparagus Portabella Risotto is not to be feared.

miso tempeh

I think every vegan eats tempeh or tofu on a fairly regular basis, so Easter should be no different. These Miso Tofu or Tempeh logs from Kathy Patalsky look mighty tasty to me.

cake

We can’t have a complete Easter without delicious desserts now can we? Isn’t this cake gorgeous? The original post is in Finnish so some of the ingredients are probably hard to find in the States, but I fell in love with the photos, so here is the cake!

cinnamon cheesecake bars

These Cinnamon Swirl Caramel Cheesecake Bars from Chef Amber Shea should not even be legal! Seriously.

What are your plans for Easter? Do you have an Easter Egg hunt? Do you host a big brunch or dinner for your family?

Weekly Rewind~Christmas & Birthday Edition

It’s been a busy week in my house! On Monday we went to my mother-in-law’s house to celebrate Christmas with that side of the family. The kids were super excited and surprised to find out that we are going to Disney World in August 2013!

On Tuesday morning the five of us celebrated our own Christmas before my side of the family arrived around lunch time. Rachel got the nook color tablet she’s been wishing for…

Dylan was ecstatic when he opened his new tablet!

Grace adores anything and everything Hello Kitty and was happy to find a coin purse in her stocking.

I cooked and baked a lot of delicious food, but I think my favorite was the raspberry pie!

Then on Thursday my Princess turned 6! I can’t believe my youngest child is 6 already. Craziness. She got a new recliner from me as well as a blanket that I knitted her.

I always let my kids choose dinner on their birthday and Grace picked; macaroni and cheese with wiener wings and broccoli. We made a funfetti cake with funfetti frosting for dessert.
