Happy Easter!

I hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend, and for you Ottawa dwellers the uncharacteristically warm weather! The fact that I already have tan lines and freckles fills me with great joy. This past week has been hellish and although I love Easter, I'll be glad to see the back of it! Long, LONG days and little sleep does not a happy Jenn make. I'm hoping for a bit more normalcy this coming week. I get a day off on Wednesday to make up for the fact that I had to work on Friday, yay!

I've made tons of goodies, both at home and at work, so I'd like to share them with you!

First off we have my easter cupcakes - chocolate with vanilla buttercream. The nests were made out of kataifi dough and we had jelly bean eggs to go on top.

Macarons with white chocolate ganache

Me (looking sweaty and tired, please ignore) with the cookies that I sold to one of my best customers!

My Easter dinner - lamb leg with lemon and rosemary, potatoes roasted in the lamb pan, baked cauliflowers with raisins, and breaded parmesan asparagus. So good!

I unfortunately didn't get to do the Easter egg hunt this year - my uncle claimed he is "too old" for it! :( However, when my family came by to see the apartment my mum sneakily hid little chocolate eggs all over the place! I've found 4/10 so far! Today I took the shortest trip to Kingston in history to have dinner with my boyfriend's family, where we had more traditional fare such as ham, mashed potatoes, corn, stuffing and... turkey!? It smelled like Christmas but felt like Summer - what a juxtaposition. Tasty nonetheless!

I'm excited to be getting new business cards soon! I have a very talented friend who has done up one prototype so far and it's fantastic! Hopefully I can sway her into doing my website and blog layout, but one step at a time ;)!
