Best Deviled Eggs

Best Deviled Eggs

I love deviled eggs. I have been trying really hard to remember if we have them in England or not, because the first time I ever remember eating them is at Easter time in the States, so i’m pretty sure it’s just an American tradition– but I would love for one of my English friends to tell me because it’s driving me crazy (not so much about the eggs, but the fact that the longer I live in America, the more I lose my mind heritage).

Cheap D.I.Y Easter Table

Cheap D.I.Y Easter Table

This week I planned to buy a really cute centerpiece and some pretty pastel plates and chargers for my Easter table, but I ran out of time to go to all the stores I needed to, and just decided to get a little creative with some things I already had at home. I have mentioned in my last few posts that I have been redecorating and re-purposing a lot this week, so I pulled some vases, flowers and candlesticks from my office, and put out some chicks and eggs I had from last year to decorate my Easter table. I thought I would post a few ideas in case anyone else out there wants to decorate a cute Easter table in a super inexpensive, SUPER simple way this year.

D.I.Y Easter Napkins

D.I.Y Easter Napkins

The other day my amazing husband brought me a new silhouette cameo as a late English mothers day/early American mothers day present! I am absolutely in love with this new machine… it cuts and prints everything, so there’s just endless possibilities of things you can make with it. I decided to start off with a really small, simple project: D.I.Y Easter Napkins. I didn’t want to buy tons of fabric paint, so I did a little research and found out that if you combine fabric medium with acrylic paint, and iron it, the heat will seal it and make it permanent! I was so excited about this, because I have TONS of paint! So all I needed to buy were some plain white napkins and the fabric medium and I was good to go! I printed some silhouette bunny shapes on vinyl, stuck them onto the white t-towel, mixed up the paint and fabric medium, then just sponged the paint on top!

Orange Glazed Gammon with Baby Carrots

Orange Glazed Gammon with Baby Carrots

I can’t believe Easter is coming up THIS weekend! I had so many plans to do so many cute things, and as usual… I have no time to do them all {story of my life}. Any decent blogger would have had Easter figured out last month, so I feel like i’m totally cramming here like my good old BYU days; but i’m determined to bust my butt to post the awesome recipes and craft projects I had in mind, over the next couple of days! Today I have been knee deep in spring cleaning and re-organizing my house, and on top of that, I have come down with that dreaded cold everyone else around me seems to have; but somehow I still managed to pull off this amazing dinner, so i’m pretty darn proud of myself. This is one of the most delicious dinners I have made in a while, and I couldn’t wait to post it because it’s so perfect for Easter! P.S. If you are American, you might be asking, “what the heck is Gammon” it’s just what we call HAM in England, so don’t be confused. P.P.S. One of my all time favorite meals is gammon with scalloped potatoes, but last time my husband was sick, it was from those potatoes, so he refuses to eat them! This ham with some amazing scalloped potatoes would make the BEST Easter dish ever! I hope you guys enjoy.

Thai Chicken Wraps

Thai Chicken Wraps

The other day when I was out shopping with my sister in law Jessica (who I often drag into town with me, because it’s a long, boring 55-mile trip without her), we came across an awesome new pita place where I tried my first ever thai chicken wrap. I don’t really know what possessed me to order one in the first place, but i’m SO glad I did, because I absolutely loved it! My sister in law said: “I can’t believe you just ate all that!” It was a medium-sized pita, so I don’t know what she was talking about; but really– it was absolutely delicious, and so fresh and healthy; that how could I not?! I knew I wanted to learn how to make one for myself (since let’s be honest, 55 miles is a little far to run and grab a pita whenever I feel like it), plus I already had my own yummy chicken satay recipe to base this one from, so it was EXTREMELY easy! I absolutely love this recipe.
