Evelyn had a fun Easter weekend. She enjoyed coloring Easter eggs (Easter egg, actually).

Egg Decorating

On Sunday morning she got to wear her "trench coat," "pretty dress" and "dressy shoes."

But just like last year, she was still more interested in the Easter grass and plastic eggs than the treats in her basket.

Happy Easter!

Culinary Technique

Evelyn has been continuing her kitchen adventures and expanding on her Valentine's cookie experience. She's moved up to portions that can be shared with the rest of the family.

In addition to the usual kitchen gadgetry, Evy also needs a step stool in order to reach the countertop and create her masterpieces. Her specialty seems to be sprinkling.

Dumping out the entire container of sprinkles when sprinkling is taking too long.
Sprinkles Concentration

Proper culinary technique should never get in the way of a prompt taste testing.

Let's eat.
