Well a great time was had by all at the Gallery Opening at Cecil County Arts Council! Thank-you so much Heather and everyone at the Council who threw us and the other artists such a fabulous opening!

Other good news and cause for celebration! The Easter Bunny is coming and at our house we have big plans! We will be dyeing Easter eggs (I'll send pix later in the week) and overall getting ready for our annual Easter Egg hunt at Milburn Orchards and the Easter Sunday Brunch. Stay tuned and I will post my recipe for my famous stuffed French Toast with Raspberries!

Spring S'mores Marshmallow Nests

by Shawn Hull

12 large marshmallows
6 graham cracker sheets
¾ cup of chocolate chips
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray. Place 12 marshmallows onto the cookie sheet and bake until golden brown. About 3 minutes per side. Break the graham cracker sheets into 12 graham cracker squares. Put each warm puffy marshmallow atop one graham cracker square. Take a finger and push down the center of each marshmallow. Fill each little nest with a pinch full of chocolate chips.


Serve on any of your Happiest Days Designs dessert plates, the bunnies look especially cute !
