Peyton received a new cookbook for Easter. It is small and charming and full of delicious recipes for breakfast. She couldn't wait to try one, and this is the one she chose. These muffins taste like the very best cinnamon sugar doughnut you ever ate. Try them today with a glass of cold milk or a hot cup of coffee. Enjoy!

Today we spend time in quiet reflection and prayer. Saturday we are having Easter Dinner here with my mom and Margie and Chris. Then we are heading to Easter Vigil Mass, the most beautiful mass of the year. After that, we will head home and set out our baskets for that sneaky little bunny. Sunday we will hunt for the baskets, have a lovely brunch of coffee cake and fruit, and spend the rest of the day together visiting, eating chocolate, and maybe even napping.
I hope your Easter is happy and festive and blessed. And filled with lots of good chocolate bunnies and fruity jelly beans! Thanks for visiting, my friends. I am always glad that you do.

Yesterday, I laced up my sneakers and joined Peyton and Flynn outside for our first walk of the season. We have the perfect spot for a late afternoon walk right near our house. And on this April afternoon, we saw the first few signs of spring!

Years ago, right after college, I was hired as a second-grade teacher in a perfect little school district near my home. I was thrilled to be able to spend my days in a classroom with those young students. I was so thrilled in fact, that after a few days, the school secretary stopped me and asked me if I wanted to know how much I would be making per year. I remember literally staring at her and asking her if I was actually going to get paid for doing something I loved so much!

Try this recipe. It is so good! Everyone in my entire family loves it, which is rare. I say it is weird because it is called Cheeseburger Casserole, and although being a simple pasta recipe, it smells and tastes like you are eating a cheeseburger. Seriously.
