Easter Deliciousness

I like Easter, Charlie has a few days off work, there's chocolate, booze and nothing in particular to do. It's like Christmas but without the stress and obligations.

I don't do a huge amount of cooking at Easter but I always make hot cross buns for Good Friday and something chocolatey. I do a roast on Easter day -chicken this year and something lemony for pudding.

Hot cross buns. Their crosses disappeared during baking. Maybe next year I'll make proper crosses.

Good Friday fish. Salmon with parsley garlic butter.


Salted Chocolate Nutella biscuits. These were inspired by this recipe. I didn't use the cookie recipe though preferring to keep it simple with my trusty fork biscuit recipe which I made a little thinner than usual and sprinkled with sea salt before baking.


Chocolate biscuit cake made with pistachios, dried cranberries and dried apricots.

Lemon curd pavlovas. I made some lemon curd earlier this week and thought how lovely, fresh and springlike it was, perfect for an Easter dessert. 


Now I must get back to my sock knitting, I'm halfway through the second one now. Such fun!
Happy Easter to you all.
