Can’t wait for Easter dinner!
Happy Easter everyone! It’s almost here and as usual our family will all get together at my parents house. As excited as the kids are about the Easter Bunny and our traditional Easter egg hunt, I am also excited about the oodles of yummy food that my mom makes. She does go overboard but we sure appreciated it all. My sister and I try to be helpful and bring something to help out and show our appreciation. This year I am bringing a dessert, a Lemon Refigerator Sheet Cake. It’s easy, it’s light (and after the huge meal who needs anything heavy) and it’s pretty to serve. This is a great make the day before dessert too, so instead of fussing Easter morning, you can make this Saturday and it’s great.
