Scones inspired by the Movie Tea With Mussolini #SundaySupper

DSCN1956This week’s theme for #SundaySupper is Movie Inspired Dishes  hosted by the ever talented Heather at Girlichef . My family loves movies, from my husband to my sons we have fans from all the movie genres at my house.

Not So Deviled Eggs for a #SundaySupper Easter

010Pretty dresses, lilies and bonnets at church, bunnies, eggs and baskets at home… those are the images I think of when I think of Easter. However, I am the mom of boys. There are no pretty dresses and bonnets. Baskets are not filled with marshmallow ducks or chocolate bunnies. My boys like beef jerky. Cashiers must think I give the lamest Easter Baskets ever, but my boys love them. I do indulge in fancy egg decorating. I have even taken a class on Ukrainian Egg decorating, Pysanka.
