Part of me can’t believe it’s April…and Easter…already. But it is! I’m not complaining. I’m thrilled that winter is over. And I love Easter–its so wonderful to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection with those I love. I’m really looking forward to my first Easter in the Berkshires as a married woman.
Of course, the food blogs are pretty excited about Easter too. And with good reason: in addition to being the most significant day in Christianity, it’s also one of the best candy holidays.
