Peeps. Need I say more? Below are two post I threw up last year in honor of the little Easter treats, and I'll be adding a few more I've put together for this year over the next few days, also seen below-I'll attach the links as the week progresses. In addition, I have a little file of ideas I want to try out over the next few weeks. The only thing better than a week of peep post is TWO weeks. Clearly, these sugar coated marshmallows are life changing. And classy. Clearly.

I made a basket of garden 'stuff' for one of my favorite people on planet earth, Nicole. She has a green thumb.....I. Do. Not. I'm bringing a new version of this gift to share today on Good Morning, Texas today. It's spring, time for some spring-ee house warming/hostess/adult Easter basket gift ideas. I'll add links later to the tutorials. I'm doing two segments today, and I've added some additional things to the original basket idea that I'll be sharing.
I'll be sharing this idea for baking bread in bpa free tin cans (it should say this on the side of the vegetable tins before you use them). This is the original post, complete with one of my favorite bread recipes.
I'm also making these super simple chalkboard spoon markers. Here is the original post, it basically serves as a tragic warning-what NOT to do, and then the simple solution that would have saved me a lot of time, but wouldn't have made for quite as interesting of a story....
I also made these seed starters for the basket. I shared the tutorial last week.
Last up, I am making some super simple cupcakes, so simple....this IS the tutorial.

The only thing you need is a mix of shredded paper and tissue paper cut into thin strips. You want about the same amount of each.

I put Nest Cookies, Carrot Shaped Cookies, and Lindsor Chocolate Bunnies in each basket.

These are super easy to make, and really tasty.
Bird's Nest Cookie Recipe
Ingredients: 1 cup peanuts, 2 c. butterscotch morsels, and 2 c. chow mein noodles, chocolate eggs.
Instructions: Melt morsels (it took about 1 min and 20 seconds for mine to melt). Stir in the peanuts and noodles. Drop onto wax paper, add eggs, and let it dry before bagging. I was able to make 12 large cookies out of these ingredients. You could certainly make them smaller, but it always sounds better when you can say, "I only ate one cookie."....you gotta think ahead about these things.
I bagged some of these cookies up individually.
