Recipe| Easter Simnel Cake

While you may associate Easter weekend with lavish chocolate eggs, Simnel Cake is actually the traditional Easter cake.

Grown Up Rice Krispie Squares | Recipe

Sometimes I just want to make something really simple like Rice Krispie Squares. Easy to make and even easier to eat! I would hardly even call this a recipe.
