Something a bit different for Easter

Excuse the silence blog friends...the school holidays arrived, and with them chicken pox. One of our little ones has now gone through it and we are waiting for the other to come down with it. So many thoughts have been brewing in my head that I have wanted to externalise into blog posts, but they will need to wait. So, I hope you like this Easter offering....

Every year at Easter when I was a child, my mum and aunt would make traditional Southern Italian biscuits...they are quite unique in that they are big and at the centre, you have a hard boiled egg, still in its shell. I remember year after year, sitting, munching my way round and round the biscuit (this could take half an hour!) until I was left with my egg.
These biscuits are called Pupi cu l'ova (southern dialect for doll with an egg) and are traditionally made in shapes such as bears, dolls, hen's or baskets.

I haven't had one for...well at least 25 years, until this morning! We found a recipe online - the one we used is here though I really wanted to do this one as its more like the one I remember, but I was missing a couple of ingredients.  Well, they tasted fabulous, just like I remember. Taste buds sure give you a trip down memory lane don't they?
And the kids loved making them and more particularly, eating them! There is a lot of childhood delight in munching through a giant cookie ;)
Why not give them a go? Something a little different for Easter...

Lastly, here's some of our Easter decorations (I have started keeping a little box with Easter decs in them...why should decorating our homes be just for Christmas eh?).

The wreath was something I started last year and finished last (that's just the pace of how it goes round here...).
Wishing you the best of what Easter can life and the power of transformation.
