I was doing the Martha Stewart Easter workshop and decided I didn't like her pom-pom based centerpiece.  This was my takeoff on that...the bunnies are so fuzzy that the little guys like to "pet" them.

Baking is therapy.  And attempting Martha recipes (yes, they have their own category) is extreme therapy.  So I decided to take up Martha's challenge this year.  In the January issue of Living magazine, she said "why not make each of...

Sent from my iPhone I may have posted about this before, but just in case...you should throw away whatever banana bread recipe you're using and switch to this one.  It's a Martha Stewart, but it super easy.  Don't blame me if you end up...

I thought so too, Lori.  I think, at that time, the bunnies were invisible.  And, the eggs are that big, it's the bunnies that are so small.

The October "wall of crepes" was indeed difficult (and messy), but probably one of my favorites, flavor-wise.  My version didn't turn out quite as pretty as Martha's because she always trims her cakes to make them even, and I think wasting the...

My mom trims her pie crusts and bakes them, sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. Yum!  I trim my pie crusts, too, but they never make it to the baking pan....

I can vouch for the January cake. It was delicious, although enough for the whole battalion. But what about November?  Two cakes, and all I got were healthy muffins. They were delicious too.  But that October cake looks good, so good that it...

Luckily, the power came back on after two hours.  I've gone to great lengths this year to be sure to make each cake during the actual month, so it would've been complete torture if I couldn't make it yesterday.  I even had to schlep the...
