I'm a big fan of Mad Hungry (the cookbook AND the cooking show). Lucinda Scala Quinn's recipes have all been super delicious and easy to follow. This Spaghetti Bolognese of hers is DELICIOUS! Our whole family heartily recommends this!
Our family has a tradition of celebrating the change of each season with a special tea. Elizabeth really gets excited about these and even counts down the days! She was so happy when I told her she could pick out our special dessert for our Springtime tea and she chose these Chocolate Bird Nests. They were very simple to make and she LOVED being so involved with all the ingredients. Her favorite part? Licking the bowl, of course!!!!
