Happy Easter and Happy Passover!
I love holidays for many reasons, but let’s be honest, the biggest excitement for me around the holidays is eating delicious, homemade food. I also love traditions, which is why every Easter I look forward to making Easter bread!
Easter bread is a sweet bread, more of a dessert than anything, but I’ll let you in on a little secret…I totally eat the bread for breakfast :). Of course, I eat something else with the bread to make it more of a balanced meal. Remember if you only eat a carb at breakfast (especially one that is high in sugar), you will have a quick burst of energy followed by a quick drop in energy.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Can I just tell you all how happy I am to be Irish on a fun holiday like St. Patrick’s Day! I hope you all enjoyed your St. Patty’s Day; I know I did! And I’m not done enjoying it yet!

I know what you’re thinking…”but that’s not healthy!” That may be true…BUT everything in moderation is fine! Plus, I am a food lover not a fighter! I would never deprive myself of any type of food; I just won’t have it on a daily or weekly basis!
Having said that, don’t be scared to try this delicious recipe I’m about to share. Share it with your family and friends if you’re worried about eating it all and consuming all the calories by yourself! Which could be done since it’s that good!
A perfect dessert to make for the holidays, it also is a great dessert to enjoy served warm in the winter time. And unfortunately, in the North East, we know winter lasts forever! So…
