    I love those marshmallow Peeps as much as the next person. But have you ever had a homemade marshmallow? Oh man, they're outrageously soft and wonderful. If you're up for it, making your own Peeps is definitely worth the effort. You can even customize them with your own flavors -- you're limited just by your imagination! It's not that hard, either. Here's 6 steps for making your very own marshmallow Peeps.

    It's Passover once again (you can tell because I've been frantically searching for the afikoman 24/7). Traditionally, during this Jewish holy season, only unleavened bread can be eaten. That's right, bid bye-bye to all your floury treats -- smell ya later, cake! For lo, it's time to celebrate the Israelites' freedom from Egyptian slavery.

    It might be a solemn celebration, but that doesn't mean you need to deny yourself (or the loved ones gathered around the table) a proper and delicious feast. You've tasted the bitter herb, and now it's time for something scrumptious.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    You know that feeling you get when you want to make something traditional for Easter dinner, but a little bit different from last year, but not too different? Well lucky for you, there are endless varieties of glazes for baked ham! Here's one we thought looked especially tasty, this recipe for brown sugar-bourbon baked ham. While I think the bourbon sounds promising, there's another fun surprise ingredient you may be tempted to sip while you bake your ham ...

    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.

    Hot cross buns are one of my favorite Easter treats. Traditionally served on Good Friday, I guess they are actually a precursor to the main event. It used to be I would run out and buy them at whatever local bakery was closest to my place of residence. That's because most of the recipes I'd find seemed pointlessly elaborate.

    Then I developed a recipe of my own. Since it involves yeast, there is a certain amount of time you've got to plan for in order to let the dough rise properly. But they are in no way labor intensive, and a little planning can save you a tedious trip to the bakery. Hopefully this sweet tradition will be even sweeter with these homemade treats.

    There are three things parents hate hearing from the back seat during a road trip. 1. Are we there yet? 2. I have to pee NOW. And 3. I'm hungry. I can't help you with the first two, but if you're looking for snacks, I've got some ideas for you. And they're all pretty healthy! Healthy but tasty. Your kids will love munching away on these road tripping snacks so much they won't even notice they're actually kind of good for them.
