Coconut Poached Fish & An Easter Round-Up

Easter round-up feature

It’s all systems go here at the moment with Easter hat parades, Scout parties, term 1 concluding, a very busy Easter long-weekend ahead including a little threenager turning 4 and then there’s all the normal stuff! Almost feels like Christmas again!

I’m not here to waffle today but I did want to leave you with an Easy yummy dinner dish for Good Friday it’s one of my favourite fish dishes  (if you’ve been with me for a while you may have caught the first post I did for it last year), I decided this Coconut Poached Fish needed a little ‘reno’ so I made it again over the weekend, took a slightly prettier picture and here we are.

Sweet treats are always on my mind, this last month has been quite the celebration of just that. I love how Easter gives us a REAL reason to enjoy chocolate (not that I need one). Anyway I thought you may appreciate a little recap of everything Easter just in case you were looking for some edible inspiration for this Long weekend.

Let’s start with Dinner Shall we?………

Now for the Easter treat Recap……..

Edible Easter Kidlet Fun is a great one to get the little people involved with. The kidlets loved making these biscuits and giving them to family and friends as gifts.

The kidlets eyes also lit up when I made this easy no bake Triple M slice, not something we indulge with on a regular basis, but such a delicious treat for a special occasion.

This Chewy, Gooey, Easter Egg Slice is a crowd pleaser especially for those who love a good brownie (GUILTY!!!)

And for some pop in your mouth sweetness you could try my Surprise Dessert Balls (stuff them with your favourite mini Easter eggs) or make a batch of my Easter Pizza Triple Choc Bark, I sent some off to the big kidlets teachers yesterday and today it’s heading to preschool, a great edible Easter gift.

Now for a very ‘Easter’ looking Dessert that is sure to satisfy both young and old you need to make my Triple Delight Easter Chocolate Ripple Cake! I’m making another one for a family gathering this weekend, the kids are so excited! There is salted caramel in there!

If formal and elegant is more your style this 15 Minute Ferrero Rocher & Nutella Cheesecake will be a perfect choice for dessert. It’s so easy to make and will have everyone’s mouths watering as you plate it up. NOTE: Zadada isn’t a Nutella fan and he still loved this.

I hope this little round-up solves a few Edible Easter dilemmas for you.

What ever you’re up to this Easter, I wish you a safe, happy and delicious one lovelies!

Until the next time……
