    Easter is just around the corner, and Pinterest is brimming with fun kid-friendly potluck recipes to try. I couldn't resist the colorful spin on the traditional deviled eggs of these Jello flavored deviled eggs, and I quickly got to work!

    This could be a great after-school treat, a fun dessert, or even a great addition to our Easter brunch spread.

    Easter is a great opportunity to get really creative, especially when it comes to dessert. Me? I'm a huge fan of making my annual bunny cake. There are a glut of different recipes out there when it comes to making an Easter bunny cake. Some of them are fast and easy but don't look great, and others are gorgeous but will eat up the better part of your day. Who has time for that?

    The recipe I used this year is all about speed. It's also all about the wow-factor. In just under an hour, I managed to put together this life-like bunny cake, and I couldn't have been happier with the results. Not only did it look adorable (I added some Peeps and some Cadbury mini eggs to complete the diorama of the bunny and her brood), but it tasted divine. I used a lemon cake mix, but you can use whatever flavor you want. Take a look!

    When I saw it, I knew I had to have it: A pink striped ombre birthday cake from the Daily Candy. Ombre, or color that gets progressively darker or lighter, is a trend that shows no sign of leaving us anytime soon. In cake form, it's so pretty, and I could picture exactly how to make it -- maybe with just a few minor tweaks to make it easier to pull off. Here's our version of the cake: Four layers using whipped cream instead of frosting. Think this looks too complicated to pull off? No way! It's actually a lot easier than you'd think. I'll show you how.

    Easter bunny cupcakes give new meaning to the phrase: you're so cute, I could just gobble you up! What better way to get into the holiday spirit than to add cupcake baking to your list of Easter traditions? Get your kids in on the fun by assigning them an easy task (if your tots are anything like mine, they'll forego wanting to hold a mixer and potentially creating an insane amount of mess in favor of decorating their bunnies with cute candy noses and ears). Whip up a big, yummy batch of these darling cupcakes the day before you plan to color your Easter eggs and -- voila -- you'll have an instant and memorable treat loved by every member of your family.

    Did I mention the adorable quotient of these little goodies is off the charts?

    I never knew I liked banana pudding ... until I tried it. And then I died, went to Heaven, and was reincarnated as a lady that enjoys banana pudding. Dulce de leche, however, I've always been a fan of. Give me sweet caramel and give me a reason to run, because dang, those calories are worth it.

    So when I ran across this recipe for dulce de leche banana cream pie, my appetite did a little somersault of excitement, and my taste buds may have drooled a little bit. Because this thing looks like Heaven on a plate.

    Hi, moms! Your Crock-Pot meals have been pretty good, for the most part. But there's a reason why that string bean and beef stew you served the other night made me (and your toddler too, I'm sure) throw everything from the table onto the floor. I didn't deserve a "time-out" for that. It's not my fault those string beans were so ... stringy. That the beef was ... too beefy? Chewy? I don't pretend to know enough about fine cuisine to tell you exactly what was wrong with it -- but I can tell you how to fix your mistake.

    Put away your slow cooker and make things even easier on yourself by serving this genius meal guaranteed to get any child eating: Chocolate Chip Waffle Lasagna With Medley of Cheerios. Doesn't that sound super yummy?! Read on for the easy peezy recipe.

    Happy Cookie Dough Week! This is a week food bloggers are posting creative and tempting recipes featuring cookie dough. (What a delicious thing for them to do, right?!?) This cookie dough cake roll recipe by Jocelyn Delk Adams of Grandbaby Cakes caught my eye this morning and now I'm craving it like crazy. Cookie dough or cake -- why choose between the two? Why not have both? In this recipe, the "cookie dough" filling for the jelly roll-style cake is eggless, so you don't have to worry about it being safe to eat raw.

    Not sure if you got the memo, but Mason Jars are totally in. This old-school canning vessel has been having a "moment" for a while now, and something about their unpretentious nature and simplicity makes it a well-deserved trend. One that is also affordable, and we always love affordable.

    I have to admit that I haven't done much with Mason jars beyond storing jams and pickles, but there is SO much more you can make in them -- from delicious desserts to foods to take with you on the road.

    Check out these 6 things you can use Mason jars for besides jam right here:

    If it's chocolately, warm, and gooey, I'm there with a spoon in one hand and a carton of vanilla ice cream in the other. Because nothing is better than warm gooey chocolate with vanilla ice cream slowly melting into it. Oh my gosh, my mouth is watering right now.

    Anyway, my tastebuds did a little flip of excitement when I found this recipe, because it basically requires no work. You mix a few simple ingredients into the crock-pot, set that thing, and move on with your life for a few hours. When you come back, the perfect chocolate cake will be waiting for you.
