DELICIOUS MARASCHINO CHERRY BUTTERCREAM FROSTING

Happy April everyone! I have been wanting to try this variation of Maraschino Cherry Buttercream Frosting.

GIANT EASTER EGG HUNT: PERFECT FOR TODDLERS

My daughter, Libby, is just close to a year and a half. With Easter coming up I wanted to do something special for the egg hunt this year. When I was a kid we would find hard boiled eggs around the house. This can be stinky if you end up forgetting about one. Plastic eggs are …
