CG_Easter_logoJoin us this week, as we explore memorable and edifying ways to celebrate Easter. We encourage you to take some of the ideas you find and make them your own. Feel free to share your thoughts on each of these projects and join in the fun!


As much as possible, I like to get my kids in the kitchen and put them to work. They enjoy this fun time as much as mommy likes getting the help; plus, this counts as part of their important learning, too!

Each year, during Easter week, we try to take an afternoon to make Resurrection Rolls! They are sweet, easier than pie, and help remind us of the resurrection story.

LOOK at those cookies!  They’re PINK!  And chocolate chip!  Oh, I’m in cookie heaven just looking at the pictures.  🙂  I think I’ll make these for the kids one of these days, so I can at least smell them, since I can’t eat any myself. 

Meanwhile, I have a new website to drool over.  Check it out:

Go look, and take a napkin, because you’ll be drooling too.  🙂

Make your own (almost) sugar-free brown sugar | Your Lighter Side

Make your own (almost) sugar-free brown sugar

Never buy brown sugar sweetener again.

All right, so molasses is only almost sugar-free, but pair your favorite sweetener together with natural molasses and you have a reduced-sugar sweetener to sub into any recipe that calls for brown sugar.

To boot, making your own just feels more natural somehow. Plus, you’ll save money since molasses has a long shelf life and pretty much any sweetener is easier to find than a brown sugar sweetener–and cheaper, too.

The recipe? Um. Simple.

It really is simple!  But you must click the link to see just how sweet and simple it is.  –>> Make your own (almost) sugar-free brown sugar | Your Lighter Side

Devil’s Food Cupcakes & Buttercream Frosting | Your Lighter Side


Devil’s Food Cupcakes & Buttercream Frosting


Yes, please. Copyright Candice Wong.

The combination of rich, robust chocolate (coffee? Yum!) and the sweet coolness of a buttercream is such perfection, you might have to make sure to share with neighbors or freeze the batch so you don’t eat them all in a sitting. For Birthday parties, school functions, bake sales and other gatherings where a deliciously rich, gluten-free, sugar-free confection is desired, these clock in at only 5.7 net carbohydrates for a treat you can truly enjoy.

Mini Frittatas

I found this recipe while I was browsing and I thought my husband might really like it.  He loves his eggs!  Omelets are like pizza – everyone seems to want something different on them.  This looks like it would be a fun way to get personalized eggs for everyone in the family, all at once, without having to wait your turn.  What a neat idea! 


Mini Frittatas



For a fun and easy morning meal, try these small-scale egg dishes. Baked in individual muffin cups, they ensure that everyone gets the mix-ins they like.


  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup half-and-half
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Assorted mix-ins (such as shredded cheese, diced vegetables, and cooked and chopped bacon, ham, or sausage)
  • Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)


  • Heat your oven to 350º F and coat a 6-cup muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • clip_image003
  • Whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, and salt in a medium bowl, then evenly distribute the egg mixture among the muffin cups.
  • clip_image004
  • Add about 2 tablespoons of mix-ins to each cup, then sprinkle on a bit of Parmesan cheese, if you like.
  • clip_image005
  • Bake the frittatas until they are puffy and the edges are golden brown, about 20 to 25 minutes. (If necessary, run a butter knife around the edge of each one to loosen them before removing them from the pan.) Makes 6 mini frittatas.
