Microplane Grater Kitchen Tool Spotlight

Today I am sharing with you a kitchen tool that everyone should own...a microplane grater.  I've had mine for a few years now and it's great.  This kitchen tool is perfect for zesting citrus, grating garlic or hard cheeses...even for grating spices or chocolate! 

I love my microplane grater which is why I'm featuring it in our Kitchen Tool Spotlight on Walking on Sunshine Recipes today!

Fun Ways to Decorate Easter Eggs

Easter is next week!  Do you dye eggs with your children for Easter?  When Olivia and Michael were younger we used to go to my parent's house every year on Good Friday and spend some time dying eggs and of course stuffing plastic eggs for their baskets.  As the kids got older, we did the dying of eggs mostly at our house...even last year we took some time and dyed eggs.

Here are some fun ways to dye Easter eggs with your family this year...

A Spring Ball Jar Bridal Shower

Our daughter is getting married in TWO months!  At times it's hard to believe that life has reached this point when it seems like yesterday she was just this little girl.

We had her bridal shower two weeks ago and today I'm sharing photos of the decorating and our family.  I'll share more of the food soon because we all know how important food is to us!

He Lives Hymn Scripture Sunday

Not a scripture, but a favorite hymn that I love to sing 
in church on Easter Sunday.  

The words are so beautiful.  
It's sad that we don't sing this more than just one Sunday a year.  



Please go HERE for a printable.

Bridal Shower Memory Jar

Our daughter is getting married in two months.  It's still hard to believe, but having her bridal shower two weeks ago made it real...our little girl is really getting married!

One of the things we did for the shower was create a Memory Jar where guests could write encouraging notes to both the bride and groom.  Please head over to Daily Dish Magazine for the entire post and for FREE printables that you can use to create your own Memory Jar.

Have you heard about Resurrection Gardens?  They're a great way to teach the true meaning of Easter to your children.  Easter is in a few weeks and what better time than NOW to start your own Resurrection Garden.
