I'm back!!! I've been without Internet service for 7 very long days, lightening hit the tower and fried everything, I tried to catch up at the library once but it was slow and wouldn't let me post here so I just waited it out! I'm the first to admit that I depend on the Internet on a daily basis! It has become apart of my life, and boy did I miss it! Mornings just weren't the same without my coffee and catching up on Facebook, it's the one free place where I can keep in constant contact with all our family and friends, saving on the cell phone bill too! Oh, how I missed reading all my favorite blogs, making sure some who are tackling hard times are doing alright while others continue to share the upside of life, making for a well balanced day! I did have a Pinterest attack, I had the time but couldn't access my boards! But, I'm back and catching up!!
So, since I missed Tasty Tuesday for this week, I thought I'd share a annual post since Easter is just a week away, can you believe that!! If your a fan of the Cadbury Cream eggs, those rich and creamy Easter delights, then you will love this recipe, and now you can make your own, right at home!
