Easter and other food

I promised I'd post the other recipes I made for Easter, so, here they are!


Pecan Mini-Muffins

My mom has made these in the past for Thanksgiving and other fall occasions, but I felt like they were just as good at Easter! They are just delightful. Ok, they're full of butter and brown sugar, but in mini-form, they are a delectable treat. And for special times like Easter, it's ok to have a little bit of butter and sugar. The original recipe doesn't say to make mini-muffins, but I liked them even better in smaller form.

I used a gluten-free flour blend to replace regular flour. The one I like best is Silvana's, and I am truly thankful for her and her recipes!

6 cups white rice flour, preferably Bob's Red Mill *I usually do half brown rice and half white rice
3 cups tapioca flour (not starch!)
1 1/2 cups potato starch (preferably Bob's Red Mill)
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons xanthum gum, preferably Bob's Red Mill

In a large bowl, mix together and store in airtight container."
The verdict?
: Delicious, and full of flavor. Super easy to make! Anyone could bake these-- gluten-free, or not.

Copycat Recipe: Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs

They sound amazing, right?! And sadly, I didn't get any pictures of these beauties before they were all eaten. But they were amazing. Even the guys at Easter said they tasted like the real thing. So, with all credit to Katie, here is her picture of these peanut butter eggs.

The verdict?
: In the words of Chocolate Covered Katie:

"Oh oh my. Big fat peanut butter-stuffed chocolate eggs." 

Yum. Truly.

And lastly, the joy of finding Easter eggs. (Izak Till style)

ohmystars. I think I'll have to try those Reese's eggs things. (Even though I probably shouldn't.)

Looks tasty, Claire!!!
