Parmesan Tomatoes
very easy and very yummy! my family was impressed (my daughter said "are you making baked tomatoes for dinner??? why? we could have a salad!!" but then she gobbled them up!). I went easy with the mustard, because I didn't trust them to like it much, but even halving the quantity it was enough to give it a nice edge and personality. I also had no mozzarella and substituted it with soft provolone cheese.

Pull-Apart Easter Blossom Bread
oh my, this bread was the star of our Easter! I had company and got enthusiastic reviews and compliments galore. Didn't change a thing, the bread is moist, pretty and not difficult at all, but people wonders what a great baker you are... a word of advice, be sure to form the blossom on the baking sheet directly, otherwise you could have some problems moving it, and you most certainly will have to reshape it. Can't wait to try it with lemon curd instead, but Nutella should be great indeed too!

Pull-Apart Hot Cross Buns
better than 5 stars! absolutely easy, no fuss at all if you make the dough in the bread machine, and the kitchen is perfectly clean, you barely dust your hands. I even omitted the cardamom, and had no raisins, orange peel, no nothing! I only had some cinnnamon handy and put the powder into the pan. They disappeared so fast that I couldn't possibly verify if they keep well, and a bunch of picky eaters I bake for!! I already got requests for a second batch.
