With Easter only a few days away, I’m basically obsessing over anything on Pinterest. How are humans so incredibly creative?! I’ve seen the cutest tablescapes and decorations, including bunny cupcakes, dirt cakes, and birds nest cookies (which I even made for you!). Yeah, I’m pretty much in DIY heaven here, except for the fact that I could never construct something like this myself.

We aren’t doing anything extra for Easter this year. We won’t be seeing my parents because we were just home in Vermont this weekend, and Matt’s family lives in Denver, so I believe it will just be the three of us. Matt and I scheduled afternoon massages, plan to go to breakfast somewhere in the area, and will most likely spend the evening curled up on the couch watching movies. (Have you watched any good movies lately? We’d appreciate some suggestions!

Even though it won’t be a large family gathering this year, I’ve been brainstorming Easter-themed recipes for you to try. Tuesday was Birds Nest Cookies, today is Carrot Cake Chia Pudding, and Sunday will be Quinoa + Coconut Crusted French Toast. I know those are all on the sweeter side, so if you want something savory to go with your dinner, try my Quinoa Wild Rice Salad or the Garlic + Herb Mushroom Quinoa!
