Handmade Easter Chicks

Oh my goodness, Easter is basically here. It’s crept up on all of us so quickly and now, guess what? The year is almost a third over… Wow.

This year, Easter is going to be a little extra special in Maggie-land as my family is coming in for a quick visit. That means, I have a perfectly legitimate reason to ask them to taste-test and (hopefully) fall in love with at least ten recipes from the Food Gift Love cookbook. I love a perfectly good excuse to make food gifts and set up a gorgeous table.

Before all that, there will be a morning egg hunt and there will be chicks. There are always chicks. But in Maggie-land, we eat handcrafted chicks made just a short hop away. I’ve got a small batch in the Eat Boutique shop and I’m happy to share – but in order for them to arrive to east coast readers by the weekend, you’ll need to order asap like by Wednesday (for NYC/Boston)!

Happy holidays to you and your loved ones. I wish you hugs, kisses and peeps. xox
