Hoppy Easter Eggstravaganza Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Hoppy Easter Eggstravaganza Giveaway Hop, hosted by BookHounds.

For those who celebrate Easter, a slightly early Happy Easter to you. And for those who celebrate Passover, happy middle of Passover. For those who are just happy to celebrate the beginning of Spring, happy that. Longer days and warmer weather are always something to celebrate, in some places more than others.

As someone who celebrates Passover, and who has a birthday at this time of year, one of my childhood memories is of not being able to have birthday cake or a party at my birthday more often than not. At that time, there just wasn’t much in the way of baked goods that were Kosher for Passover. Except this one cinnamon crumble coffee cake that was surprisingly yummy, but not exactly birthday-cake material. Based on the offerings at the grocery store this week, solutions for this particular dilemma now abound!

But it isn’t Easter without some mention of Peeps. I still don’t believe they are a food, but they clearly make great dioramas. This one struck a chord and a funny bone, as I remember when my room did look kind of like this – except that the stairs went the other way. My room was at the top of the house when I was in high school.

Maybe you want a good book to read with your Peeps? Even when this blog hop is over, it still won’t be too late! (Especially if you like your Peeps “well seasoned”)

Welcome to the Hoppy Easter Eggstravaganza Giveaway Hop, hosted by BookHounds.

So Happy Easter to those who celebrate it. Happy very early Passover to those like me who celebrate a different holiday around the Spring equinox. And for those who celebrate something completely different, or who just want to celebrate the start of Spring, happy everything!

Easter also means that it is time for the annual displaying of the Peeps.

A friend in Chicago always preferred them desiccated. She left her peeps out on top of the TV until they reached the optimum stage of dryness. Me, I’ve always thought the little devils looked better in displays than they tasted.

One of the funniest peep displays I’ve seen this year effectively combines two things I don’t eat – it’s a display of peeps crafted to look like sushi. Here’s Peepshi:
