Try this easy recipe for Easter morning!
Why is every holiday marked by junk food? I ache for by-gone days when youngsters were thrilled to discover an orange in their stocking, and tickled pink to uncover a set of dice or jacks nestled beneath the prickly Easter grass in their baskets. As I perused the Easter basket candy cluttering up the center aisle at CVS, I started to feel sick to my stomach. Who are these people buying four foot tall bunnies, anyway?

A long winter was finally behind us and it was so nice to be out and enjoying nature. The birds singing, plants growing, cows mooing in the distance, all were harbingers of spring. We happened upon an odd looking little tree with branches that held small pastel-colored fruit that looked like Easter eggs. I remember that Mom was amazed too, having never seen such a thing. We had a lengthy …
