Happy Easter!!! Unless the Zombie Bunny Finds You...

Easter!!!! Springy wonderfullness!!!  Furry Bunnies!!!   Marshmallow Peeps!!!! (PROZAC!!!) There is something so amazingly refreshing about Easter.  Perhaps it's the warmer weather...the dog crap emerging from melting snowbanks or the fact that my prescriptions are all up to date.  (YAY!) Whatever the reason, I love this time of year!   Also, I may or may not have spent the morning taste testing the recipe of the day...wait for's amazing. 

As always, I feel that it is quite necessary to jump start Easter weekend with a list of helpful hints and tips.  Holidays are stressful enough, so I've compiled a list of my own previous experiences that may help you to avoid some of the finer random acts of awkwardness.  Do take note!!!


-You know that awkward moment when you feel strangely attracted to the mall Easter Bunny?  (Yeah you KNOW which moment I'm talking about...He IS naked and kind of a bad ass...all breaking into houses and what not.)  Anyways, do NOT voice said attraction out loud to your mates.  They feel it too, but it's best that no one speaks of it. 

-When asked to read a story to your niece after Easter dinner, do NOT haul out this nifty gem:

And if you MUST, please refrain from showing them THIS photo...I'm still disturbed, and trust me, it takes a lot!!!


-Do not admit to your grandma that you still don't quite "get" the whole Easter story...where did the bunny lying eggs come into the picture??  It's best just to go with it...

-During the Easter egg hunt, do not stuff eggs down your shirt and prance about pretending to be Dolly Parton.  Also, try to remain sober until at least lunch. 

-Attempt to maintain composure when someone makes references to their  "Mr. Nutty" or  "Mr. Solid".   Note that Mr. Solid is a creamy milk chocolate that "melts in your mouth....yes you do Mr. Solid...yes you do. 

-Don't be this guy:

-Did you give up dry humping unsuspecting men at the local Supermarket for lent? (Yay for you!!!!!)  But keep this to yourself at the family dinner.


Of course if you DID manage to stumble into an awkward moment, fret not, as I have found THE recipe that will make anyone and everyone forget the silly situations you may or may not have gotten yourself into! Cadbury Caramel Creme Martinis!!!!!!  Seriously.  I found it on a wonderful, amazing site called  "Grin and Bake It"   . You can DRINK your creme eggs!!!!  What a wonderful world. There really isn't a better way to get through awkward family small talk and the fact that you DID go against the rules and mention the Easter bunny attraction. The only thing I can think of that would be better would be a recipe that would actually INFUSE a real creme egg with vodka.  MMMM...Please let me know if you are able to master this.  In the meantime whip these up!!!

Cadbury Caramel Creme Martini

3 oz. vanilla vodka
1.5 oz. creme de cacao
1.5 oz. white chocolate liqueur
1 oz. caramel liqueur
splash of cream

You can get creative and rim your glass with chocolate or caramel sauce and crushed chocolate pieces if you want!  Swirl chocolate syrup inside the martini glass and chill.   Combine vanilla vodka, creme de cacao, white chocolate liqueur, caramel liqueur, and cream into a martini shaker filled with ice. Shake and pour.
This recipe makes 2....or one ginormous martini!!!

Remember to drink responsibly, as no one needs to see your drunken rendition of the "Passion of the Christ". Yes I'm sure your homemade puppets make a lovely Christ on the cross, however, the world isn't quite ready for your creative genius. 

Happy Easter!!!
