Not me Elsie ..... but thanks for bringing this to my mind.
We'll have a carry-in dinner after church and I'll need lots of cookies.  It's a good time to get started.

Makes me think .... the white chips are SO good and make such great cookies,  I wish they were available in some colors.

I will probably start after St. Patricks Day.  I am thinking about making some candy this year.  I usually like to make mini chocolate chip/cherry cupcakes with vanilla frosting covered with pastel colored coconute flakes.  They are really good!

I love that Easter dinner at church ...... what a way to spend such a glorious day. 
We have the "usual" Sunday morning service, then dinner together.  A great dinner!  We'll have ham and turkey, mashed potatoes, rolls, plus all the very,very nice dishes - which includes every sort of potato recipes - of veggies, salads, relishes and so on .... lol.  We eat very well.
Then we'll have the evening service - early but we woudln't miss it.

With St. Patrick's Day and my Husband's 70th Surprise Birthday Party haven't gotten around to even thinking about Easter preparations other than participating in Lenten Services.

My daughter in law always makes a lamb cake in a mold.  It is part of her family's traditions, plus it is delicious.  She uses a lime flavored pound cake, with a lime glaze.  If she has any batter left over she makes mini bunny cakes in some molds I bought her several years ago at William Sonoma,  We usually get to take a few home.  They are great with fresh strawberries and whipped topping or cream.

You ladies are all so industrious I'm starting to feel lazy lol!  We usually have a big family dinner for Easter.  I haven't made up my mind yet whether we will have ham or turkey but dessert is a necessity.  I just found a bunny pan that I forgot about so maybe I will use that and then make the chocolate peanut butter pie that Nikki posted recently.  If I have time I would like to make the colored cookies out of an old cookbook that look like fruit slices.  The bright colors are always nice for spring.

I have tried the lamb cake and I also have a teddy bear cake and I have had the worst luck with the lamb..his head almost always falls off. So it has to get patched with toothpicks or other  reinforcement.
The bear is not quite so bad but his head is a little touch and go at times.
I think it has a lot to do with the cake mix used. A pound cake is much sturdier.

I have so far, planned the menu for Easter Dinner.  In about 2 weeks, I probably will start getting the ingredients for the Easter Eggs.
