Happy Easter

I hope everyone had a fabulous Easter! I had a fun-filled day of cooking and eating. Even though I'm old now I still color a few eggs just like the good old days. It brings back memories.

After I colored some eggs I cracked them and turned them into deviled eggs.

I also cooked a small ham and glazed it with my secret sauce. This always turns out so good. My dad calls it carnivore candy.

For a side I made squash casserole. This was my first time trying this recipe and it is definitely a keeper. It was awesome! I've been looking for a good squash casserole recipe and now I don't have to look any further.

Yellow Squash Casserole

  • 4 cups sliced yellow squash
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 35 buttery round crackers, crushed
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Place squash and onion in a large skillet over medium heat. Pour in a small amount of water. Cover, and cook until squash is tender, about 5 minutes. Drain well, and place in a large bowl.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together cracker crumbs and cheese. Stir half of the cracker mixture into the cooked squash and onions. In a small bowl, mix together eggs and milk, then add to squash mixture. Stir in 1/4 cup melted butter, and season with salt and pepper. Spread into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cracker mixture, and dot with 2 tablespoons butter.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes, or until lightly browned.

I ended the day making some Easter cupcakes. Since they are not quite done I will have to post them later.
