If you celebrate Passover, or even if you don't, boy do I have a yummy dessert for you! Those of you who are Jewish will appreciate this more than most... after years of flourless Passover desserts like sponge cake (ewww) and macaroons (oh boy), you can finally indulge in something worthy- Pastry-Chef David Lebovitz's Chocolate-Covered Carmelized Matzah Crunch. Oh My! I'm not sure if I can wait until Passover to try it! You can find the scrumptious recipe here: http://www.davidlebovitz.com/archives/2008/01/chocolatecovere.html
I came across these dinner plates the other day and instantly I was transported back to childhood. I can remember spending countless hours with Dapper Dan the Magnetic Man... giving him beards, mustaches, and goofy hair all with the aid of a magnet. OK- we didn't have internet, the Wii, or really many more than three or four television channels so anything was probably fun back then, but for those of you with a taste for nostalgia, or who want to give your kids a reason TO play with their food, check out these dinner plates I found at Perpetual Kid. This website has a ton of unique "playthings", sure to entertain your inner child.
Here is a cute spring treat idea for your child's classmates that won't break your budget... Fill up a cone-shaped cellophane bag with any orange-colored treat... Cheeto Cheez Balls, Goldfish crackers, orange Jelly Bellies, M & Ms, you get the idea. You can find cone bags at your local Michael's or other craft store. Tie off the top with some green Ric-Rac (shown) or green ribbon. To personalize it, add an Easter or Spring-themed favor tag with a personal message. We can design one for you at The Favor Maker.
OK, so some of you have probably seen these before, but they are so darn cute, how could I not share with those of you that haven't?? These spring chicken cake pops from Bakerella are only one of many, many adorable little favor ideas for Easter. Check them out at: http://www.bakerella.com/spring-chickens/
I truly enjoyed designing and planning this airline destination theme party. The guest-of-honor was a 70-year-old whose hobbies included flying and traveling so I thought, why not combine the two into one theme?
From ticket-style invitations with boarding passes to a flight manifest check-in sheet and luggage cookies available at the "baggage claim area", this party was unique, colorful, and enjoyed by all ages.
See the party photos and check out the details when we post our photo album "Flight 70".
