    Every Easter I spend a few minutes contemplating ham for Easter. And then I say no. Why? Because: LAMB. I just love it, especially roasted with herbs. So this year for my Easter dinner, I'm considering this roast leg of lamb with rosemary and lavender -- yes, lavender. I've had lamb with rosemary many times, but never lavender. Sounds so springy, even though lavender is actually a late summer bloom. If this sounds a little too exotic for you, leave out the lavender (and the jam) and this will still deliver a standout classic lamb main course that your family will love.

    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.

    My daughter HATES grocery shopping, so I try to consolidate our trips to the store. And I hate spending too much money on food and too much time preparing our meals. That's why I love finding ways to make what I do buy stretch.

    Recently I shared how to turn one chicken into three meals. You can do the same thing with a beef roast. Here's how!

    This recipe is kind of awesome. Completely unhealthy, but kind of awesome. This cheeseburger 'n' fries casserole recipe from Taste of Home only requires four ingredients and takes 10 minutes to put together (though it bakes for 50). Come on, anything titled "cheeseburger 'n' fries" most likely isn't all that good for you, but for a special, easy splurge that everyone will love, this will certainly do the trick.

    Of course, you could use tater tots or perhaps throw in a few vegetables in there to make you feel better about the whole concoction. You could even use some ground turkey to mix things up a little bit. Regardless, it's so versatile and simple, it will quickly become a staple your family will certainly love.

    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.

    All right spring, you're finally here and I'm seeing Easter candy in shop windows. And to me that means one thing: Time to buy candy! Wait, two things: Time to buy candy AND plan my Easter dinner menu. Since the holiday is coming later in the month this year, I'm thinking optimistically. Maybe the weather will be sunny and warm enough to spend time outside. In that case, I don't want to spend the day indoors, cooking. I want the slow cooker to do the work for me. So here are 8 happy, springy Easter dishes you can make in the Crock-Pot.
