I was looking around Pinterest, my go-to for ideas, and thought I would put together a collection of some Easter tablescapes I've found!  If you have a creative Easter centerpiece or tablescape, put a link in the comments!  I would love to see it, and I might post it on my blog with a link back to you!

Also, take a look at these link parties where I posted the recipe for my Pepperoni, Onion & Arugula Wheat Crust Pizza!

Pepperoni, Onion & Arugula Wheat Crust Pizza

Talk about a yummy, yummy meal!  And the best thing about making a pizza at home is that you can control the ingredients to make it healthier!  Pizza is one of my favorite things to eat, and this recipe is so easy to make!  You can tweak it too and use ingredients that you love!

Pepperoni, Onion & Arugula Wheat Crust Pizza

Total Time: 23-30 min
Prep: 15 min
Cook: 8-14 min
Yield: 6-8 slices

Freschetta Artisan Pizza Crust (Golden Wheat)
6 ounces Prego Spicy Sausage Italian Sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/3 cup Sargento Sharp Cheddar
Pepperoni slices (I used Piggly Wiggly brand) (Enough for 2 rings around the pizza)
1/4 cup yellow onion (thinly sliced)
1/4 cup arugula (Stems removed)
1 cup Kraft Italian 5 Cheese

1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
2. Place the pizza crust on a baking sheet or a pizza stone (which is what I used).
3. Evenly spread the sauce on the crust leaving about 1 inch around the edge and top it with the garlic salt.
4. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese first. Then layer the pepperoni, onion and arugula. Top it off with the Italian 5 cheese blend.
5. Bake the pizza for 8-14 minutes. When it looks done, broil it for 2-3 minutes. (It will not take more than that, I promise!)
6. Let the pizza cool for about 5 minutes before cutting so the cheese stays intact. Enjoy!

St. Patrick's Day Bundt Cake

I love baking for the holidays, and with today being St. Patrick's Day, I couldn't resist!  I found this recipe on Love From the Oven, so thank you so much Christi for the wonderful idea!  And if you like this recipe, you should check out Love From the Oven  for other great dessert ideas!

St. Patrick’s Day Bundt Cake

Total Time: 1 hr 15 min
Prep: 40
Cook: 35-45 min
Yield: 8-12

1 box of Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® French Vanilla cake mix
1 cup of water
½ cup of vegetable oil
3 eggs
Green food coloring
1 (12 oz) can Betty Crocker® Whipped Butter Cream Frosting
Sprinkles (Optional)

1. Heat the oven to 325°F. Generously grease a 12-cup tube cake pan and set aside.
2. Make the cake batter as directed on the box.
3. Measure 1 cup of the batter and pour it into a bowl. Add a few drops of the green food coloring and mix well until the batters turns a pastel green. Pour another cup of the batter into a different bowl and add more green food coloring. Mix well until it turns an emerald green.
4. Pour the emerald green cake mix into the bottom of the greased pan. Carefully pour the white batter over the emerald green batter.  Then slowly pour the pastel green batter over the white batter.
*Tip: The pastel green batter does not need to completely cover the white batter. It looks better if it just forms a ring in the center of the white batter.
5. Bake as directed on box or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. (Each oven is different, but I baked mine for about 35 minutes.) Let the cake cool for about 5 minutes. Then turn the pan upside down onto a cooling rack that is placed over a sheet of wax paper. Allow the cake to cool completely, about 30 minutes.
6. Once the cake is cool, equally divide the frosting into 3 bowls. Microwave the white frosting for about 15 seconds on high until it is smooth enough to drizzle over the cake. With a spoon, drizzle the white frosting back and forth around the whole ring in a striping pattern until you use it all.
7. Then microwave one of the other bowls. Before drizzling, mix in a few drops of the green food coloring until it turns a pastel green. Drizzle it over the cake just as you did the white icing until it is completely used.
8. Repeat with the last bowl and make the icing an emerald green.
9. Coat the top of the cake with sprinkles while the icing is still warm so the sprinkles will stick. Set the cake aside to completely cool.

Do you have a St. Patrick's Day treat you make for you and your family?  Let me know about it!

Take a look at these great link parties where I also posted a link to this recipe!
