I’m going […]

Easter Traditions

On Easter morning in my house, it was always a competition to determine which sibling – me or my younger brother – would be the first to find their Easter basket.  I usually won.   I managed this, not because I am the eldest sibling as one might think, but because I would wake up […]

Easter Pancakes

My favorite thing about Easter morning (besides all the Chocolate Bunnies) is brunch.  Mimosas, ham, quiche, pancakes, fruit salad, asparagus with hollandaise – brunch is as big an ordeal as a Thanksgiving dinner for my family.  And while these chocolate chip pancakes are good enough to accompany any decadent brunch dish, I’ll be honest and […]
