What is a Betty?

Betty is the term used to describe an amazing person who you can depend on. Betty is also a term for "sweet and loving girl." The more you get to know her, the more you love being around her. She has a good sense of humor and has a cute laugh. She's chill yet hard working as well as kind and considerate. Betty lights up the room and lights up my life. She's always happy and cheerful. She's also cuddly, independent and smart. She appreciates the simple things in life and can make anything good out of a bad situation. -Urban Dictionary

Easter Bunny Strawberry Shortcake.

We are all getting ready for Easter around the acres.  Both Stacie and Dana have chickens and plenty of farm fresh eggs.  The hens seems to be in overdrive this time of year, producing way more eggs than we can use.  We give extras to neighbors, friends and family, but most of the time baking or making our own pasta can really use them up.  Here is a recipe for a pound cake that uses 5 eggs!  Bingo, just what the Betties need.  It's really moist and not too heavy.  This year try putting some of the batter into these cute little molds for Easter (found at Fresh and Easy).

With leftover batter I use one of my favorite 4-in-1 bundt cake pans and make mini's for the freezer. So convenient to have a homemade dessert ready and waiting when your schedule doesn't allow time for baking.

Here is the recipe: 
This time around I did not use lemon extract and just added more vanilla extract. 
I thought it might compliment the 
strawberries more.

And for those of you who need a good laugh...this gal is hilarious.
Jeanne Robertson recalls sending her husband "Right Brain" to the store 
for these ingredients!  Love her accent...

Happy Easter!
Enjoy your time with family and friends.
