BREAKFAST IDEAS FOR ST PATRICK’S DAY

These St Patrick’s Day breakfast ideas are like diving into a little pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

LOADED CRUSTLESS MINI BREAKFAST SOUFFLE

HAPPY NATIONAL SUGAR COOKIE DAY

What a “sweet” day this is for sure!  Baking and decorating sugar cookies is one of my favorite things to do.  I grew up doing this with my mother, carried on the tradition for my children, and now do this for my grandchildren.006 (2)

EASTER TREATS FOR GRANDKID’S EGG-HUNT

One of my daughters hosted a large Easter Egg Hunt at her home along with a fishing derby and fish fry.  They have a beautiful, large lake on their property.   Everyone brought food and the weather was perfect with beautiful sunshine.

Sugar Cookies are the treat they always want me to make.

Here are the instructions to do these cute bags.  I use the same method as for the  Halloween Treat Bags but change the candy for the occasion.
