I am not a baker. Neither am I a cook. I really don’t like being in the kitchen. Part of it stems from not being comfortable in the kitchen (or knowing what to do) but also, I have never really had a desire to cook. However, once in awhile I get the urge to do something creative. Oftentimes, that creative outlet ends up being cooking. I had seen a picture of a Rice Krispies bird’s nest leading up to Easter and decided that would be my next project. Should be fairly simple right?
Before we head into the kitchen, let’s pause for a moment. One of the things that had attracted me to the bird’s nest was the colorful “eggs” on top and the picture. I may have mentioned once or twice that I am an aspiring photographer. I do have a “fancy” camera but sadly, I mainly leave it in auto mode on the rare occasions I use it. On Saturday I took a basics camera class. At the class we were encouraged to practice what we learned. Colorful Easter desserts would be a perfect item to practice on, don’t you think?
Back to the kitchen we go…fortunately this recipe was fairly easy. Even better, I got to choose the eggs and of course I chose Cadbury because I do love my Cadbury eggs!! And then came the hard part. Remembering the lessons from the camera class.
