Well it was a busy week and a busy weekend for me! Go go-go. I feel like I haven’t had anytime to relax. Between Cupcake orders and cake orders and the holiday this weekend, it was busy!
So this past week I had me two cupcake orders, and a cake order and then I decided to make a cake for Easter Sunday! Check them out:
Chocolate cake with Maraschino cherry frosting topped with Maraschino cherries…
Lemon Cupcakes, with Lemon Buttercream Frosting
and then the cake I made for Easter
Normy can’t wait to try it:
So for Easter we celebrated with Normy’s Family and went to my Mother in Law’s for Brunch: She had a nice Spread:
My Father in law made (The Best) Bloody Mary’s:
So I asked him where he got the recipe from, so he said Food Network and he searched Bloody Mary, Pitcher and its the first one, and so I searched and I found his recipe (as he told me what was in it). So here is the recipe which I am thinking I am going to make more this weekend as they are so GOOD! I think I had 4 of them!
There were also Mimosa
Normy likes him some of those!
My mother in law also made some fabulous casseroles, Farmer’s Casserole and French Toast Casserole!
I’ve made Farmers Casserole before: recipe
and the French Toast Casserole was AMAZING! I am not a big fan of French Toast, but this is so GOOD: Recipe Make it this weekend! I am telling you, you will LOVE IT!
And I made The Pioneer Woman’s Breakfast Potatoes:
■4 whole (to 5) Large Red Potatoes
■1 whole Onion
■1 Tablespoon Vegetable Or Canola Oil
■1 Tablespoon Bacon Fat (I used Butter)
■ Salt And Pepper, to taste
■ Red And Green Bell Peppers, Diced (optional)
Place potatoes in a large pot and cover entirely with water.
Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are fork tender. When they are ready, place the potatoes on a cutting board and dice them into 1-inch pieces.
In a large skillet heat oil and bacon fat over medium-low heat.(I added butter instead)
Put the onions in the skillet
and sauté until they start to turn brown.
(You can also use red and green bell peppers diced up. If you do, throw them in at this point).
Next, throw in the diced potatoes.
Stir well and then slightly press/pack then. Now you will cook them without stirring for several minutes. You want the pan to be hot enough to crisp the potatoes but not hot enough to char them. (Optional step: sprinkle a bit of flour over potatoes as they cook). Cook for several minutes and then flip them with a spatula. Salt and Pepper them as they cook. Cook until desired brownness.

My mother and father in law know how to have brunch!
