I'm always amazed at how talented people are when it comes to creating beautiful treats from scratch. I'm not talking about professional bakers and all those goodies you find behind glass cases at trendy bakeries. I'm more inspired by regular people who teach themselves tricky techniques and pour their hearts into making pretty, Pinterest-worthy recipes that delight everyone who sees (and tastes!) them. More than any other time of year, the holidays tend to inspire us and get our creative juices flowing. Earlier this week, my incredibly talented neighbour Marian gave me and my family this amazing plate of Easter cookies and I was so blown away. How pretty! And trust me: They taste as good as they look. The chocolate eggs were my favourite and remind me of the Laura Secord eggs my parents used to give me and my sister each Easter as children. And the bird's nest is just too adorable for words.
