Celebrating the Easter Season with Friends

Not Your Normal Easter Season Recipes

Easter Season

I love spending time with friends and with kids it get hard to enjoy nights out very often. We try to get together on a monthly basis for adult conversation, fun, and of course food. The kids love it because we are always trying out new yummy dessert recipes and they get to help. This month was no different and with Easter coming I wanted to try out some new Easter Recipes. I get sick of the traditional pies and desserts so I ventured outside of my normal recipes. I was also looking for recipes that the kids could do. I think it is important for both boys and girls to experience the fun of cooking.

I decided to create my version of Resurrection Rolls using Great Value Crescent Rolls. While picking up my Great Value Crescent Rolls, I decided that I was going to sneak a little Irish magic in there. I decided to use the Great Value Cinnamon Rolls and create a Shamrock Cinnamon Roll.

My favorite recipe that I made was the recipe for Resurrection Rolls. My family celebrates the commercial as well as the religious Easter Season but I had never made Resurrection Rolls. I wanted to change things up so I substituted Peeps into my recipe.

Easter Season Resurrection Rolls Ingredients

2 packages Great Value Crescent Rolls

1 package of Peeps

Easter Season Resurrection Rolls Directions

Preheat oven to 400*

Unroll crescent rolls and separate into triangles.

Using a rolling pin – roll out the triangles slightly.

Place 1 peep in the center of the triangle and fold up.

Make sure to pinch the edges closed.

Place seam sides down on baking sheet.

Bake in oven for 14 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove from oven and open them up to find the surprise!


 Our party could not have been better but there was great discussion over the merits of coloring Easter Eggs if they are never eaten. Watch for my follow-up article to see what we decided to do.


In the spirit of the Easter Season, I also made the following:

Jelly Been Fudge

Peep Smores

Dunkaroo Dip with Animal Crackers

Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Bread

Easter Centerpiece: For under $5

Easter Centerpiece

I know we all think wow I have people coming over what am I going to do for an Easter Centerpiece? I often plan little parties for the kids we have special teas and desserts just for fun. I love to make little centerpieces for them but honestly like it better if the kids make them with me. I have to make them on a budget because we really try hard to achieve financial success.


Easter Centerpiece

This is what you will need to make an Easter Centerpiece Peeps, sticks, and ribbon, scissors, glass beads, and a vase.

We made another Easter Centerpiece for the parent’s table but they wanted to make their own for their table. I think creating crafts is so much fun so why not. I let my little ones create their own project. We love creating projects with peeps.Easter Centerpiece

Then my son decided to put the ribbon on the sticks. They weren’t able to make the bows so I helped with that but they made up their own way to wrap the sticks which was just fine with me. It is important to let the kids create their own project. They decided to create their centerpieces with peeps.

I love to give me children materials and just see what they do with them. The final project was really cute. I think it is was really fun to watch them. They enjoyed making it and eating it. They said they could send people home with a peep pop. I love how their imagination manifests into a greta project and a wonderful memory.

Take the first cinnamon roll and start rolling the ends toward the middle (it will resemble a heart) . When the spirals look the same, pinch the dough one half of the roll then start rolling the dough from the unrolled end to form a matching spiral. When each spiral looks the same, pinch the dough between the two spirals to make a point at the bottom.

Repeat with two more rolls.

Take 1 Cinnamon Roll to use for stems and cut off a small piece. Place under the heart shaped rolls.

St. Patrick’s Day Recipe: Grown-up Green Eggs and Ham

Green Eggs and Ham Recipe

green eggs and ham

I still remember being in 1st grade and reading Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham. I could probably recite most of the book if I was inclined to try but I do digress. I also remember the day they made us try Green Eggs and Ham. I was not an adventurous kid and did not like to try new things. My mom learned the hard way once with Pierogies.  However, surrounded by class mates I was not going to be the only one not trying it. I soon realized that it tasted the same as regular eggs and ham. Now that I am older my palate is slightly more expanded and I want more flavors with dishes. I have amped up my recipe so that I get the flavor but it is not too much to turn off for my children.

Grown-Up Green Eggs and Ham!



8 eggs

1 can spinach, drained  (You could also use fresh spinach)

1 cup ham (diced)

1 tsp butter/margarine (you may also substitute cooking spray)

½ cup mozzarella cheese

Green Eggs and Ham Directions

In a medium bowl, wisk eggs together.

In a separate bowl mix together chopped ham and spinach

Preheat a medium skillet and melt butter to coat the bottom of the pan.

Pour in egg mixture to pan and cook as you would for scrambled eggs

In a small skillet heat up the ham mixture till it is warm.

Combine the ham mixture with the egg mixture and top with cheese.

Remove from heat and serve with toast.
