Happy Easter!

Lizzy of That skinny chick can bake! and AMInyc of From the bookshelf both tagged me to participate in a game of virtual Easter dinner tag! I’m not actually making anything for Easter dinner and will probably go out to eat. But, I did make the bunny cupcakes!I cheated and used a cake mix but made The Best Frosting I’ve Ever Had recipe from Pioneer Woman. Does it count as healthy if the pastel M&Ms are dark chocolate?

Anyway, for my virtual Easter dinner, I’d serve:

Mozzarella, tomato and basil appetizers
Garlicky crumb-coated broccoli as a veggie side
Potato gratin as a starchy side
Roast chicken as a main course

Strawberry tartlets
And Reine de Saba for dessert!

A final toast with a poinsetta!

I’m not going to “tag” anyone because I’m posting on Easter Day. So, I guess I’ll be “IT” till next year! HAPPY EASTER!

    Are the bunny ears made of gum?

      Yes! The pink ears are those new dessert sugar-free sticks (strawberry shortcake flavor). The blue ears are a basic blue mint stick. I attempted to buy a stick gum that was white with crystals in it to act as the inner lining of the solid ears, but I didn’t want to look like a crazy woman opening packages of gum. =D
