Betty's Bird's Nest Cupcakes
"The Easter Bunny gets all the recognition, but don't forget about our fine feathered friends this season! Birds' nests are just as festive and the best part is that they're so easy to decorate. Filled with a lime cream filling and topped with buttercream and toasted coconut, these cupcakes are the perfect treat to celebrate spring and Easter."—Betty F.
Vanessa's Dark Chocolate Nutella Cookies
"I made a very simple Dark Chocolate Nutella Cookie (picture attached!) I mixed together most of (3/4 a small jar of Nutella), 1 1/4 cups self rising flour, a dash of vanilla, 1 big egg, and 3 tbsp butter, formed into nice balls, and plopped some dark chocolate M&Ms on top. Nomnom!"—Vanessa

bobcatsteph3's Cinnamon Babka
"Cinnamon bread on steroids is how I like to describe this delicious loaf! For those who think many cinnamon breads lack flavor, this is the loaf of your dreams. You'll get cinnamon flavor in almost every bite of this sweet, rich dough, with some special pockets of gooey cinnamon-spiced filling that I usually save for last. Cook's Country made the directions so clear, this is definitely not a yeast bread to fear, but to savor. Made an excellent Easter treat, but tasty enough to eat anytime."—bobcatsteph3

Vanessa's Easter Cookies
My artsy stepdaughter decorated dozens of Easter cookies for a big family dinner-- she had five piping bags of royal icing going for an hour. So much fun! We used Deb Perelman's Brownie Roll-Out Cookies recipe from smittenkitchen.com and the Brown Sugar Cutout recipe from the Domino website."—Vanessa V.
Nicole's Carrot Cake Cupcakes
"This recipe is not only simple and timeless, it will make you love eating vegetables. You can decorate them with a traditional tangy cream cheese frosting and a sugar decoration or top them with some green food coloring-dyed shaved coconut for "grass" and jelly beans for "eggs". Any left over batter can be made into bite-sized mini cupcakes."—Nicole

Lori's Caramelized Fennel and Apple Tart
"While I'm not a huge fan of sweet pies, I LOVE pie crust. Tarts and quiches that walk the line between sweet and savory are a must so that I get to eat pie crust! While I love the crunchy, licorice bite of raw fennel in salads, I wanted to try deeply caramelizing it and teaming it with some classic flavor pairings. This tart is great for an Easter brunch or dinner, and it can be served warm or at room temperature."—Lori Y.
