Daffodils and pussywillows mean Spring is on it’s way.  I used to make an arrangement of yellow sunshine and happiness Daffodils mixed in with a few Spring pussywillows in a green glass vase.  They looked beautiful and so Spring like.  I got the idea from a florist near where I lived at one time.

So this morning on the Food Network, “In the Kitchen”, they had a contest where 5 winners got the above Easter Basket.  And that is Le Creuset pot for the Easter Basket.  All you had to do to have a chance to win was make a comment on their Facebook page of where you saw the hidden Easter egg that they showed at the beginning of the show.  I spied it behind a fruitbowl and entered the contest.  It’s fun to think of having a chance of winning something so beautiful if you like to cook.

They also showed how to make a cute bunny cake.  So easy using a yellow cake mix.  I pinned that recipe on my Easter Ideas Pinterest board.

They also showed Egg-cellent hacks to make paper towel patterned eggs.  I love their Easter Basket contest that includes the green Le Crueset egg holder.

Debi and Gabriele were guests on the show and they showed how to make Sausage and Asparagus Risotto.  Looked really good.

And then on this mornings Tricia Yearwood show on Food Network, Tricia had Chloe Coscarelli on for a guest.  Chloe won cupcakes wars with her Vegan cupcake recipe and they made and shared the recipe for those cupcakes.  The cupcakes are Lemon-Olive oil cupcakes with Coconut Whipped Cream.  The whipped cream is actually coconut milk that is in a can and they refrigerated it and took the cream of the coconut milk from the top and added lemon extract.  It is a $10,000.00 winner recipe.  I pinned that recipe to my Pinterest cupcake board.  They also shared a couple of good sounding Vegan recipes.  Saturday morning Food Network has mostly all new shows.  They had some really fun shows this morning if you like cooking and baking.

So I really enjoy the cook shows and that is where I spent my morning.  It’s a beautiful sunny day today and I think I am going out for a nice long walk.  I skipped breakfast, so I think that I will make a mushroom and sauteed onion frittata for like a brunch.  I love Saturday mornings!

And that is my thoughts for now.
