Celebrating holidays for the right reason (religion) is what keeps our spirits alive and ourselves in check. It has also become a tradition to combine holidays with tables full of Mom's best and Aunt Nieces desserts. It's a time when the lazy bring chips, the healthy bring veggies and the smart ones bring wine. God love the chip people, since I never keep them in my house I usually pull up a chair to the nearest bag and savor every crispy chomp.
I envy those who can make beautiful desserts that taste good. I really do have an Aunt Niece who can make the BEST desserts. Her cupcakes are to die for....

I heart cupcakes! I saw these really cute cupcakes at Zen Cupcake blog and decided to make them. Easy peasy...all I needed were Easters finest, yellow chick PEEPS and some Betty Crocker moist magic in a box.
Peeps... what the.....where are the Peeps? One store, two stores- five stores later, still with empty hands I gave up. Easter without Peeps? No way...
Me: Another attempt at the store, "Je voudrais ummmm Peeps."
Worker: Quizzical expression, "Peps"... Close enough, but to be sure she understood I repeated myself.
Worker: Looking at me like I might be crazy..."No, no peps".
Easter without Peeps is like Christmas without Santa.... Honestly, I'm not even sure I like them, but now I love them. Now, I am longing for Target (always longing for Target) and the ease of walking in, to grab those cute yellow chicks. While the yellow sprinkle coating dissolves and my cavities are zinging I swallow the yummy marshmallow goo anticipating the next.
I did end up making these... I even toasted the coconut, a simple yet satisfying accomplishment.
