Finished my Rococo Shawl, and I love it! The pattern was well written, and error free! The yarn was so much fun to knit with...very soft and light.  It took 8 skeins of Lustrous Extrafine Merino DK from Sublime.

And check out the amazing shawl pin my friend Vickie made for me...perfect!  Stop by The Naked Sheep Knit Shop and check out her lovely shawl pin collection!

Here's what's next on my knitting agenda!  Remember...finish one, start two!

Easter Brunch

We enjoyed a lovely Easter with family and friends. Had quite a few people in our little house; it was cozy! So much fun to spend time with people you enjoy. Being with those I love, hearing them laugh, and sharing delicious food with them makes me very happy! Here are a couple things I made for brunch that you should definitely try!

Impossibly Easy Breakfast Bake was just that...super easy to make, and definitely one of the favorites to eat! I substituted a jar of sweet red peppers for the medium bell pepper. Nummy
Nummy Nummy!

Sticky Bun Breakfast Ring was so easy and so good! Tip...remove sticky buns from bundt pan as soon as you take it out of oven. My test batch was perfect, but some of the gooey goodness stuck to the pan on Easter because I let it cool too long in pan.

And the Bacon-Asparagus Strata was my favorite! I made a few changes. Substituted Cheddar for Swiss, used fresh asparagus instead of frozen, and I used Dave's Killer Cracked Wheat Bread instead of white bread. OMG! It was amazing!

And the
fruit water was a big hit; tasty and refreshing!
