    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.

What better way to get into the holiday spirit than to add cupcake baking to your list of Easter traditions?

    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.

    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.
