24 Apr

Or: Resurrecting an old favorite (ha, pun, for Easter, resurrecting, get it?! I’m so clever).

Happy Easter/Sunday/Excuse-to-eat-lots-of-chocolate-day everybody! :) I hope you’re getting to enjoy this lovely day with family, friends, or fuzzy bunnies & massive chocolate eggs.

Yep, I totally broke out the massive egg today.

I didn’t eat it all… the bunny helped, I swear (as did a few of my friends). I traded him for some of his carrots. ;)

The interior was lined with a kind of hardened cashew-nougat-type thing, just like the bon-bons the whole egg is based on (Sonho de Valsa).

They’re a typical Brazilian candy and they’re kind of delicious, you should try them if you should ever stumble upon any! :)

In honor of this lovely Sunday, I’m bringing you retouched photos of an old, bunny-friendly recipe: my Carrot Cake Pancakes.

Funny how learning to mess with really simple stuff in iPhoto vastly improves the quality of the pictures…

And I also greatly prefer having the bigger pictures in the post. Kind of amusing to read reaaaally old blog posts from last summer before I *really* got started blogging.

Click here for my embarrassing early post, and the recipe. :)
What have you been doing with your day? I’ve just been doing homework, sadly… And coveting carrot-cake pancakes. ;) I may go buy some carrots instead… you know how I do. :)

    That’s the first post I read when I came across your blog. Those pancakes are the BOMB.com! :]

    At least you had the bunny and that huge egg to keep you and your homework company! :) I have had a lazy day, went to Trader Joe’s and then Target but Target was closed, which is weird since they seem to be open every other holiday!

    Holy chocolate egg :o That looks delicious!! I had a cadbury one for the first time and was amazed by how awesome and delicious it was. Happy Easter! :D

    I’ve been doing so much studying :( I’m still in the middle of finals and I barely got to see my family today! So sad.

    I also started moving stuff out of my dorm room. It’s so strange because I swear I just moved in a few weeks ago, not 8 months ago…

    Great pictures, and as a new blogger I can totally attest to the ‘messing around on iphoto for hours’ phase. Looks like your pictures are coming out really nicely!

    I totally re-posted my carrot cake pancakes today too, but I took different pics since I was actually patient enough to make coconut BUTTER instead of the coconut “clumps” I got last time! Haha!

    And for real! Isn’t iPhoto amazing?! I swear sometimes it takes me forever to edit my photos because I can’t stop making little tweaks!

    That chocolatey nougaty egg looks out of this world delicious! Mmmm! Hope you had a great Easter my friend!

    <3 Heather
