Ultimate Carrot Cake

Easter will be upon us in just a matter of weeks. I don’t want to miss what I believe to be the most important holiday of all. So, I’m culling different recipes and ideas now so that I have plenty of options during Easter week.

It can be tempting to buy the pre-made goodies you see at the grocery store, but it’s tastier and cheaper if you make your own. I’m a big proponent of DIY. And if you’re not? Well, I intend to reform you! 😉

Here are some recipes that I enjoy making to celebrate spring and most importantly, the new life in Christ that we celebrate at Easter. I’m slowly working to establish Easter traditions for our family just as we have at Christmas.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.
