Easter Bread
About this Cook
I'm just a guy who enjoys cooking. I have dreams to open up two kinds of places one day. I have a degree in Elementary Ed. from Bloomsburg University. I am married to my beautiful wife Suzie and ended up with a dog named Yogi somehow as a dowry :) I am one of seven kids so there are plenty of neices and nephews to help me.
My favorite things to cook
Crockpot cooking is fun. I also like to make pies and cook for our get togethers with my wife's Nonna. I like to make things that somehow make me smile. I'm constantly in search of making the greatest burger ever.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Easter I make Easter bread and my family loves it.
My cooking triumphs
My first apple pie was a great triumph. Mostly the designs that I put in them.
My cooking tragedies
Well since I cook low-sodium sometimes the food comes out too bland. My impatience causes me to burn some things lol My wife said I only know the high setting on the stove :)

Chocolate Mousse II
Ok so I was nervous about raw eggs but decided to give it a go. I've never made mousse before and this was so easy. I used a double boiler for the chocolate and beat the whites like it said. Then after folding it together I worried like everyone else whether it would set. This was VDay dessert after all. It set by the time I got home 5 hours later. Now I must warn that it is ultra-rich which the wife loved. I'm not so much of a chocolate lover so she ended up taking mine to work this morning. As for presentation I used the raspberry sauce recipe on here and encircled it with the cream-filled strawberries recipe on here as well. A few fresh raspberries, whipped topping and shaved dove chocolate. Voila, I just have to say thanks to Sharon for the recipe, quick and simple and she told me it was the best thing ever. :)

Almond Easter Bread
I hope everyone enjoys it, the process does take awhile but it pays off, let the dough rise and follow the directions first time out.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
