Happy Easter


.
This morning I picked up these daffodils at Whole Foods (just $6 for 30). Nothing says "spring" quite like a bouquet of daffodils. Most of them were closed up tight earlier, but now they are slowly opening to grace us with their cheery yellow blooms!

Tomorrow, to celebrate Easter, we'll attend an early Mass, then have my husband's mother over for brunch. This afternoon I made a broccoli and cheddar quiche and a lemon-ginger Bundt cake, so most of the work is done. We'll serve mimosas with the meal and a spring salad of Bibb lettuce and radicchio dressed with homemade vinaigrette. Nothing fancy, just a simple, but festive, brunch. 

Wishing you and your family a very happy Easter,
Claudia

  1. I agree with you that nothing says spring like daffodils. As a child, there was a foundation on an old house or shack deep on the country property and I used to love to venture through the brush to find the blooming daffodils that outlived the structure. I don't know why I never thought to move them but if I had, that spring memory just wouldn't be the same.

    I hope you have a wonderful Easter day!

  2. Beautiful! I love the photos of your home. I'm wondering about the quiche that you made today for tomorrow. I'm guessing that you baked it today and will reheat tomorrow? Do you ever have a problem with soggy crust? I can't seem to get the knack of the quiche! Any hints? I am making the same thing for tomorrow.

    1. Hi Kathy, thanks for your comment and for visiting My Little Bungalow. Quite honestly, I don't make a lot of quiches, so we'll have to see how it goes tomorrow when I reheat it. I did skip making my own crust and bought a spelt crust from Whole Foods (trans fat-free). I'll let you know what the result is. When making your own pie crust, I think the key is to pre-bake the crust partially before filling it. That might help prevent sogginess. Good luck and have a lovely holiday!

    2. An update on the quiche: it was awesome! No sogginess in the crust at all. I used an organic spelt flour 9" pie shell by Wholly Wholesome and I think it's my favorite pre-made pie shell ever. The quiche recipe I used can be found here: http://www.marthastewart.com/868430/broccoli-cheddar-quiche

    Happy Easter Claudia...

  4. Dear Claudia -
    Happy Easter!! Thanks for sharing that needed sunshine. Dreary and rainy here in DC. I'll have to pop into our Whole Foods to get a bunch. I love daffodils, and look forward to their return in our garden.
    Take care,
    Loi
