I'm a little late for Chinese New Year, but I thought I'd write about how to make hot Chinese mustard. This is an easy homemade sauce recipe to make. The Husband loves this hot mustard on his eggrolls and fried rice, but our local Chinese restaurant is really stingy with the sauces. Even though I love their food, sometimes I go out of my way to another restaurant that does give me the hot mustard packets that he loves. Well, no more. Never be without this delicious spicy mustard again!

This easy chocolate babka bread recipe features a filling mixture with cocoa, hazelnuts, and rum. It's a sweet bread that you can serve as a dessert. Babka is sometimes called the King of the Jewish breads, and for good reason. The sweet indulgence is a great recipe for celebrating the end of Passover. You can bake my version either in the oven or the bread machine. Its rise (haha! get it!) in popularity marks its transition from a holiday exclusive to year-round in bakeries worldwide.

I was talking about my site the other day, and someone made a recipe request: McDonald's Sweet and Spicy Jam copycat recipe! It's the first request that I've had. This recipe took quite a while to figure out, mostly because I never had it. So I had to do a bunch of reading online of what it was supposed to taste like, along with the ingredients list on the little container itself. If you've ever tasted it, give me a heads up about how authentic it is. Either way, I've heard it's pretty good!

This is a wonderful recipe for how to make homemade strawberry jam. You gotta trust me, it's so much better than the store bought stuff, which contains all sorts of preservative and other yucky stuff. And it only has three ingredients: strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice. I love to collect strawberries from my patch of evergreens. They are bursting with flavor ... but I don't get that many of them. I freeze them and make this jam. But don't worry, you can use store bought strawberries, too.

Today, I am going to show you how to cook the best Easter ham. Our family only eats ham occasionally, like every other year. This year, I decided to host an Easter dinner, which will feature this hammy ham and its wonderful glaze. It had nothing to do with wanting to take beautiful pictures of all the delicious things I will make. Not at all. The spice rub is very simple. You can leave, as is, or you can create a honey, brown sugar glaze that can be put on in the last 30 minutes of cooking.

I'm slowly making my way to a complete Easter meal! And today, I have this easy sweet Easter bread recipe to serve at your dinner table. I realize that I just did a hot cross buns recipe, but this bread is for my centerpiece surrounded by colorful dyed eggs. I love the braided texture, and I think traditionally, you put some of those colorful eggs inside the braids, too. You can just use those chocolate eggs wrapped in pastel foil for a no-fuss decoration. Mine will be served on a cake platter.

I love Reese's, but candy prices are through the roof! Here are some homemade Reese's peanut butter "cups" for you to make. They are so good, and the best part is that you can use whatever ingredients you want without all of that yucky preservatives. If you want, you could also make your own peanut butter for them, use different chocolate, or throw in some Nutella instead. If you're feeling adventurous, why not some sea salt sprinkled on top, or maybe crispy rice cereal? Or even caramel!

Today I am going to show you how to make colored deviled eggs for Easter. These eggs came out absolutely gorgeous! They are also really easy to make. If you don't want to use my deviled egg recipe, you can substitute your own. The secret is in how much food coloring to use for each egg set. But don't worry, I have the exact drop measurements you need to make a rainbow of Easter egg colors.

The luck of the Irish is in every bite of this St. Patrick's Day green rainbow cake. It's bright, happy colors are just the thing to bring some shamrock and gold to the end of the rainbow. I made four layers, but you can make as many (or as little) as you want. You can also change out the colors, if you want an actual rainbow. Below, I included a mascarpone cheese substitution, too, if you can't find it. The cake itself is a simple vanilla cake, but not overpoweringly so.
