Easter Sunday Dinner

From our table to yours have a wonderful blessed Easter! On the menu for Aunt B's family Easter dinner is Ham, twice baked potatoes, green beans with onions and bacon, corn, deviled eggs, and bunny rolls! For dessert we will be having carrot cake! It all turned out tasting perfect with the exception of the deviled eggs, and I again put to much salt in them for my liking. 

Bunny or Gerbil Rolls?

Many of us are guilty of trying to attempt what we see on Pinterest or going around Facebook. I seen the bunny rolls and I thought they looked easy enough. Well, easier said than done when you get to the kitchen to test out the theory. I didn't have my photo to see how it was suppose to be done I went by memory. They turned out more like chubby gerbils than bunnies. Hee hee! At least the most important part, they were soft and delicious!! Who don't like fresh rolls from the oven? :D

Bunny Pancake?

I started off my Easter morning making my honey a bunny pancake! His butter nose slid off by the time I took the picture, but isn't it an awesome idea to boost up their Easter morning!

5 Star Red Beans & Rice

One of my favorite things to do while I am surfing the internet is stop by my favorite website for foodies. The website is called You just type in the ingredient you want and a recipe comes up. In this instance, my husband wants red beans and rice, I am not a big fan of red beans and rice so I decided if I must make this I am looking for a recipe that I will like as well. Plus he cannot say I never make him red beans and rice. (Giggles)

I added an extra can of drained kidney beans to the recipe for him, and instead of 1 clove of garlic, we added 3, I doubled the oregano and since I knew my husband would want a lot of rice, I just made instant rice in the microwave for 6 servings to please my hubby's large appetite.  It was a great meal!  Next time I think I need to double the meat and stick to just two cans of beans, it would be more pleasing to my taste buds.
