Easter Treats

I follow a bunch of bakeries, baking supply companies, and other popular online bakers on Instagram. I love seeing pretty pictures of homemade treats because it gives me so much inspiration and makes me want to get in the kitchen and make something!

For the past couple of weeks my Instagram feed has been loaded up with pictures of Easter goodies, specifically treats made with Cadbury Mini Eggs. So I headed out and bought a whole bunch to make some things for Easter weekend.

First up was Mini Egg cookies.

I just used my favourite chocolate chip cookie recipe and replaced the chips with crushed Mini Eggs and added some blue sugar sprinkles to the tops before baking. It's an easy way to get a small taste of Mini Eggs at lunch time or with a coffee.

I knew I wanted to try my hand at another candy bark after making one back at Halloween. So I picked up some jelly beans to go with the Mini Eggs. I was planning on using melted chocolate chips but Michaels Craft Store had their Candy Melts on sale recently so I grabbed two packs - yellow and Colorburst Pastel.

Easter Candy Bark Directions:

1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Melt candy melts according to directions on the package.

2. Pour melted candy onto wax paper and swirl the two colours together.
3. Add candy and sprinkles to the mixture on the wax paper. Put in refrigerator.

4. Let harden for a couple of hours and then break into pieces.

I love how it looks and it's fun adding whatever candy you want to the bark. I'll be sure to make another bark soon since I have leftover Candy Melts. I'm already thinking about what candy and sprinkle combinations I can use.

Did you make any special treats for Easter weekend?

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.

I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
