Easter Sunday - Food and Family

I made my sister-in-law, Angela's, Morning Glory Muffins. Ahh . . . cinnamon . . . is there a more glorious kitchen smell? Here's a link to her recipe:

Then, my husband cooked my sons' favorite breakfast: Pancakes and sausage. I made the scrambled eggs.

Wow! I caught him twice in one day! This has to be a record. He doesn't like to pose for pictures!

Here's my son, John, displaying his bored college look . . .

And David was doing his imitation of a statue . . .

My family likes very basic, unpretentious food, which is usually a source of frustration to me since I like to cook and experiment in the kitchen, but on days like this, it's nice to relax and just enjoy them. (Whew, that was a long sentence!)

The muffins look delish! I will have to try them. Your table looks beautiful. I try to cook all main dishes the day before a holiday because you are right it is nice to just enjoy your family!

Those muffins looks delicious. I love when we have pancake breakfasts - don't do it too often, but nothing says 'home' like a good filling breakfast.

Wonderful photos of the boys and Lee.

Maria, I'm just catching up on your Easter photos, and I definitely think your house is the place to be on Easter morning! I love seeing these photos of you and the guys. . . but think they should have wrestled the camera from you for a shot of you as well! Since the nearest Williams and Sonoma is hundreds of miles from here, I think it's time for me to head off to their web site. . . and they should send you a commission! :)

Correction. . . "photos of the guys". . . not you! But you should be in there, as the sweet, loving, orchestrator of these wonderful festivities!
