Easter Egg Cake Balls Since I’ve been quite busy lately, I’m taking advantage of timing and reposting one of my favorites for Easter.  These were a big hit and I’m sure I’ll be making them again this year! Although I don’t quite get it as I guess I’m just not that much of a cake

I always have left over cranberry sauce and never know what to do with it.  Due to my preference for sweets and distinct lack of interest in turkey (or any other kind) of sandwiches that only use a teaspoon or two at a time anyway, it is always a challenge to use up.  I’ve finally

This was another challenge I could totally appreciate – a great sweet bread with nuts, cinnamon and sugar swirled throughout!  As a special bonus, this one is pretty good for a workout – lots of kneading and rolling but totally worth it.    Thanks so much to Jenni of The Gingered Whisk where you can find her beautifully photographed
