Easter, and all of that

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Easy ways to make kids happy|Photography

I like to call this one “Hot Cross Yuck,” subtitled, “I didn’t know there was going to be that pink stuff inside it.”

ROFL at the Hot Cross Yuck!!

I had promised to make hot cross buns over at MommyClub.ca….and even though everything went wrong (one batch went in the garbage), I was determined to do it!

I did end up with an incredibly delicious batch that had all of us licking our fingers and smacking our lips in appreciation. But man, a whole day…and I had to re-clean the kitchen.

*sigh* lololol.

I miss my Grandma’s hot cross buns. They were the best.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (18) and Sarah (16). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
