Sweet and Tweet. With spring in full swing, there’s no better time to take a little inspiration from Mother Nature. If you’re tired of the same old strawberry shortcakes, opt instead for bird’s nest desserts! These miniature marvels can sit atop cupcakes or be made as no-bake versions—good when working with kids. Start with a base—like crunchy chow mein noodles or mini pretzel sticks—then top with chocolate candy eggs or a classic favorite—Peeps. Recipes on TasteofHome.com.
Something to Celebrate. Get your pint glass ready for New Beer’s Eve on April 6th. The night before National Beer Day on April 7th, New Beer’s Eve celebrates the end of Prohibition in the U.S. On April 6th, 1933, throngs of thirsty people waited outside bars and taverns until midnight, when buying alcohol would be legal for the first time in 13 years. Celebrate this historic event at your favorite bar or watering hole and toast New Beer’s Eve!
