    Just like Halloween, Easter is a holiday where we truly love us some candy. There are chocolate eggs, jelly beans, bunnies in every edible form imaginable.

    Still, nothing says 'Easter' quite the way a marshmallow does. Its light, airy texture reminds us of springtime air -- with more sugar. They make great additions to every Easter basket: Nobody doesn't like a marshmallow.

    But marshmallows often leave us scratching our heads when it comes to making them at home. Like so many candies, most of us would rather jog out to the store and buy them ready to go rather than slave away over a hot stove.

    That's because candy -- and marshmallows in particular -- get a bad rap! They might take a little bit of time to make, sure. But most of that time? It's just waiting around! Making your own marshmallows at home is a fast, easy treat that you can get done in 5 east steps

    Almost everyone is thrilled when the Easter candy starts rolling into stores -- everyone except people with peanut allergies (and their parents). For these folks the Easter basket is a receptacle of anaphylactic shock waiting to happen. So many classic candies are made in a factory that processes nuts. It's kind of a bummer! What's a candy lover with nut and other allergies supposed to do? Well, the good news is it's entirely possible to build an allergen-free Easter basket. You just have to be a little more creative and a whole lot more careful. Here are a few tips.

    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?

    Have it your way! A lot of people love fast food, but we don't all love the same menu items. Your cheeseburger in paradise could be another person's chicken nuggets. But why do we all like such different foods? We could say it's just the fascinating variety of taste palates among humanity. Or we could be silly and reductive and say your taste in fast food is intricately linked to your psychology. I think we know which one is more fun: Here's what your favorite fast food says about you.

In a Reddit "Ask Me Anything," Brian Niccol was asked when Taco Bell's breakfast menu would be coming to Canada: "When you take Justin Bieber back," Niccol replied. And just like that, Taco Bell won the Internet for the day.
