Making the most of our beautiful cottage and its grounds, screamed out for a legendary Easter egg hunt. I was quite proud of the final hunt, albeit it didn’t work out the way I had planned. I don’t suppose it will with a 7, 5, 4 & 2 year old! We had fun though and the kiddies enjoyed finding the eggs as much as I did hiding them. I think I am a natural at playing Easter bunny…
Isla loves her Num Noms, she really wants to collect the entire set. We didn’t realise there was new nail varnishes to collect in Series 4, Polish-it Noms. We had a fun craft afternoon after our Num Noms Easter hunt. The girls had a lot of fun searching for the collectibles all over the house. Then had some quiet time crafting in our playroom.
This is a brilliant recipe for adding a little spice and fruit to your Easter baking. I like the recipe as it’s a subtle drop of spice and yummy currants, the decoration is fun for the children and you can have these finished off within the hour. Isla enjoyed decorating the biscuits and eating the chocolate icing too, who wouldn’t? Dr Oetker have many Easter recipes online if you want to try some Easter baking with the children this weekend.
This year we have gone away with friends and what better way to celebrate this joyful Easter season than to recreate the fabulous Cadbury’s Great British Egg Hunt, at home? We usually do the National Trust Cadbury’s egg hunt, Anglesey Abbey is our favourite as you get to explore the wonderful grounds. At home, it’s not so vast but we still had a lot of fun exploring and finding.
This is one of the yummiest recipes I have ever used for making those chewy cookies, you know the ones, like you get at good coffee shops or in the freshly baked section at supermarkets. This recipe also uses up all that chocolate you get from Easter eggs and a packet of Mini Eggs too. Obviously.
This is a fantastic recipe for a big breakfast to keep you going on a busy Day over Easter. It is really simple to make and it is really filling, so fuel yourself up for a fun day ahead. The recipe is an easy omelette recipe with spinach and feta cheese – it could even be a nice quick and tasty lunch too. We are really enjoying cooking with the Tesco Organic coconut oil instead of olive oil at the moment, I know it is a little more expensive but the pots do last for a long time and it is so much healthier for you.
I had a small window for baking on Sunday morning and as you can imagine you have to grab those with both hands, but disaster- we had no eggs to make a cake. So I browsed around to see what other ingredients we had and decided to try an eggless recipe. I have to admit, I couldn’t really tell the difference and I love banana cakes so we were on to a winner.

Waitrose sent us some fantastic items to make and decorate our own Cadbury’s Easter eggs and lots of tasty treats to decorate our chocolate eggs – we had enough left over to make our very own chocolate cupcakes. It was so much fun making, baking and decorating with the children but it was a chocolatey mess – everywhere!
Easter Monday we had a fun Easter Egg Hunt with the Rooks and we really enjoyed it, especially because we got to get some lovely family snaps of “me & mine. Daddy Rook and I went to decorate the garden and cute little wendy-house with eggs, biscuits and 3 special magic Lindt bunnies. We then called to the rest of the team, Daddy Constant and Mummy Rook, and off we went to hunt the eggs.
