It was also a a craft weekend for me.
I painted a sign for my dad, painted 1 side & stained the other side of a board that I got a Home Depot for less than $5 to use for my photography (mostly for food photography) , and I started to make a few scarves with these yarns. I love the colors.
These mini Cadbury eggs that come out before Easter are a weakness for my mom and I.

I also got a white foam board to bounce light to improve my photos.
We actually just bought 3 bags to have on hand. Well, 2 bags will be saved while the other is used to make Cadbury Blondies from Bakeaholic Mama. As soon as I saw this recipe, I knew I had to make it. My dad actually doesn't like these eggs, which is crazy since he usually likes anything with chocolate so I made him a pie. That way this pan of blondies can be just for my mom and I (and maybe some of her co-workers).
Recipe from: Bakeaholic Mama
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
2 cups milk chocolate mini eggs
- In a medium size mixing bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt together.
- Melt butter over medium heat. Once melted add to the bowl of your electric mixer. Cream together with sugars.Add in vanilla and eggs mix until creamy.
- Slowly add in flour mixture until it is incorporated.
- Fold in Mini Eggs.
- Spread batter into a greased 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish. Bake at 325 for about 35- 40 minutes or until a tooth pick is inserted in the center and comes out clean.
- Let the bars cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting.
Notes: I made a few small changes from the original recipe: I cut down the salt to 1/4 tsp, the vanilla to 1/2 tbsp (the vanilla I use has a much stronger flavor than others), and my blondies were done in 34 minutes instead of 40- our oven tends to run a little hot so when I bake new recipe for the first time, I always start checking 5-10 minutes before the recipe calls for, just in case. I baked these blondies in a 9x9 and they were about 1'' tall. Next time i might lower the sugar content since the candies are sugar coated, but they are good anyway.
