Easter Desserts

Okay, I'm a little late posting these photos. First off, my oh so handsome boys (and nephew) if I do say so myself.



A family photo, yes, I guess I will finally share my face.


It is not an easy task getting the boys to sit still for pictures. Can you tell??

Let's move onto some desserts. Easter was moved from our house due to an emergency gall bladder removal. We packed our entire meal (I had prepped everything beforehand) and drove over to my brother-in-laws house. On the menu was:

Fresh Ham

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Brussel Sprouts with Pancetta

Parmesan Scalloped Potatoes

Marinated Fruit Salad

Refrigerator Yeast Rolls

Lamb Cake


Buttermilk Lemon Poundcake

Buttermilk Lemon Poundcake

Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake

Lemon  Ricotta Cheesecake 2

Next year I will be omitting the asparagus, I think I overcooked it. I normally cook in a gas stove and used an electric stove and well, I forgot about it. It wasn't really good, but I may try it again. The scalloped potatoes were by far the best that we have ever made. Definitely a keeper. The brussel sprouts, well, let's just say that I make the for Christmas and now for Easter and they are a hit. I make them the day before and let them sit overnight in the refrigerator and they absorb all of the wonderful flavors. All in all the meal turned out good, it could have been a disaster due to unexpected events.
