Foodie Friday: Easter Round Up

Everywhere I look, I see flowers. Pansies, daffodils, forsythia. It's spring in Tennessee, a time of renewal and remembrance, a time for planting and dreaming and baking.
 I made a bunny cake yesterday, but when I inverted the pan, crumbs went everywhere. Bandwidth kindly brought home a carrot cake from the Publix bakery, along with some chocolate carrots.


Have you planned your Easter menu?
If you're like me, you're always looking for new dishes that will please guests. Settle back with a cup of coffee, a plate, and a fork. We're going to sample the most-viewed recipes from the last three link-ups.

Forks ready?
Let's go....

The Simple Sweet Life  is an artist. Just look at these gorgeous Spring Daffodil Cupcakes.

Palatable Pastime created a Hawaiian Brown Sugar Glazed Ham that will take center stage on your holiday table.

Mary at Home Is Where the Boat Is created festive, mouth-watering ideas for Easter celebrations,
starting with Veggie Medley Deviled Eggs.

Little wheelbarrows are filled with Peter Rabbit's Carrot-Zucchini Muffins. Love
the wheelbarrow in the background, too!


Oopsy-daisy. It's the season for bunnies that land face-first into a recipe. Will Cook for Smiles  made Bunny Butt Almond Joy Cheese Ball,
an instant smile-maker, perfect for the buffet table.


Don't miss Butteryum's  Jell-O Easter Eggs. They are adorable, colorful, and perfect for an Easter gathering.

A Spoonful of Thyme  brought together two favorite flavors with Lemon Strawberry Loaf.


Happier Than a Pig in Mud  prepared a Carrot Cake Roll with Cream Cheese Filling. Can you just imagine your fork sinking through these sweet, carrot-flecked layers?


Red Couch Recipes  made Meringue Baskets with Sorbet, an inventive, flavor-filled dessert.

Wives with Knives  has knocked it out of the ballpark with Coconut Almond Bunny Bites.

The Charm of Home  baked Ina's Lemon Pound Cake, a melt-in-your-mouth dessert that includes edible flowers.
