Hope Everyone Had A Happy Easter Weekend!!

How cute are these Easter treats?? I didn’t get to make the treat I wanted, but will get to it soon enough πŸ™‚

Our son spent the afternoon ‘hunting’ for eggs at our home ❀

And as he was having fun, we had a pork tenderloin cooking in the CrockPot. The recipe was simple, which was a must, and it was all placed into the pot in minutes. I cooked it for 6hrs, but next time, I’ll probably check the temp around 4hrs. The only things I did differently, is use fresh sliced onion, placed underneath the tenderloin and used real garlic. I’m glad I did too. The meat itself fell apart, and was flavourful with the onions and garlic. We had herb and garlic (thanks to Boursin!!) mashed potatoes and honey balsamic roasted brussels sprouts along with it – yummy!!

Will definitely make this recipe again…

Our Easter Sunday Dinner

We decided to make a pork roast this year, so we grabbed this lovely centre cut from Whole Foods. One of these years will attempt to roast lamb…just need to muster the courage!! LOL

To accompany the roast, we also roasted brussel sprouts and mushrooms, along with our go to garlic smashed potatoes to sop up the mushroom gravy…omnomnom!!

Happy Easter!! From Our Family to Yours…

And with the blessings of Easter, comes a day filled with yummy food – am I right?!Β πŸ˜€ Nothing says Easter like a simple ham dinner, and so we had just that!! With smashed potatoes made, with Philly Garlic and Herb cooking cream, and a bit of milk. I do need to make smashed potatoes with Boursin cheese, as I’ve heard rave reviews about it. Next time!! We also had a nummy side of seasoned roasted broccoli, which roasts in 15mins at 450 degrees.

 

Of course, no Easter dinner is complete without dessert!! And I decided to make a Chocolate Fudge cake with chocolate frosting, decorated with Cadbury Mini Eggs πŸ™‚ Now, I know it’s easy to make a cake from scratch, but I did have this Betty Crocker cake mix that wasΒ screaming to be made. And I always buy the frosting for the sheer convenience, and ease of use. Put these ingredients all together and voila!!
