Food Lovers' Trivia
Q: What is a hot cross bun?
Rave Review!
Roasted Easter Ham
This was really easy and tasty. I was a little unsure of how all these flavors would jive, but trusted all the positive reviews. Glad I did: this was great!

Bunnies and Bread
After the Easter bunny has dropped off all the baskets, there are still more treats to look forward to on Easter Sunday. Hot cross buns, braided egg breads, and cinnamon rolls will make your day even sweeter.

Food Lovers' Trivia Tidbit
Traditionally served on Good Friday, hot cross buns are a small, lightly sweet yeast bun. Before baking, a cross is slashed in the top of the bun. After baking, icing is used to fill the cross.
