Easter has come and gone…and so concludes the winter of financial ruin! This is what I call this time of year, starting in October and lasting until Easter…it’s back-to-back birthdays (I love you winter babies!) and holidays. We just celebrated Christian’s 11th birthday the weekend before, so Easter was scaled back on the sweets. We did our traditional egg hunt, and everyone received baskets from the Easter Bunny!
I made lots of Easter goodies this year…too many, really! The kids had a blast colouring eggs and making cascarones (or more so, breaking the cascarones!) I would say the biggest hit was the Easter Egg Hunt Cookies, so definitely give them a try.
Cascarones are hollowed eggs typically filled with flour or confetti and are thrown or broken over the recipient’s head, which is said to bring good luck. Cascarones are similar to Easter eggs and are a very popular tradition in Mexico, but also in most Latin American countries.
