What Else? + Have a Lovely Spring Weekend

What are you up to this weekend? I'll be enjoying some beautiful spring weather, and will definitely making this light and fluffy unbaked cheesecake with cream, cream cheese, and cherry pie filling.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend (and I wish everyone that celebrates a very Happy Easter!)
In the Orthodox and Eastern Catholic Churches, Easter eggs are dyed red to represent the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the Cross.

P.S. Life has been keeping me pretty busy. I haven't been able to do as much visiting as I like to! I may be a bit slow with my visits...my apologies. xx

Now, that is one very cruel blog today! My mouth started watering at the cherries, and that lucious dessert in the background, and by the time I got to the waffles I was slobbering all over myself! Thanks for that! I also love the photos of the flowers.

I'm drooling over that cherry cheesecake and those waffles. Oh MY, they look wonderful!

Your red eggs brought back a fond memory for me - one I hadn't thought about in decades. When I was a kid, my best friend was Greek. Her mother used to dye their eggs red during the Orthodox Easter period and when I'd visit, I was challenged to an egg fight of sorts. We'd smash the eggs together end to end to see which one would cave and which one was declared the winner.

Wishing you a winning Easter, Betty. Thanks for sharing your beautiful images.

Linda said...

The images were truly lovely, and now I am hungry - thanks! All except for the cherry. For some reason, I do not like cherry pie or cherry anything. Love the cherries off the tree...just not in sauce. Strange person, I am ! Have a great weekend!

TexWisGirl said...

Craver Vii said...

Happy Easter! At my church, we have this traditional greeting where one person says, "He is risen!" With enthusiasm, the other person or persons reply, "He is risen, indeed!"

It looks like you have beautiful weather and tasty treats!

Mari-Pi-R said...

Un buen fin de semana te estás planeando, tan solo ver la idea de la tarta ya me apunto a él.
Que disfrutes y te lo pases bien en esta primavera.

Beautiful Flowers. I see that you have spring weather. It's wonderful. This cheese cake must be delicious. I did not know what the Easter eggs.
Don't worry if you do not have time to visit our blogs. Sometimes it happens for the work.

I've been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

Michelle Renee said...

Yum...those waffles look d'lish!

Hope you have a great weekend as well. :)

darla said...

Beautiful photos! I didn't know that about the red dyed egss--cool! Stopped by from SITS today. Enjoy your day.

Betty Manousos said...

the artful diva, no, they are not.
those are buttercups (ranunculus).
in fact some varieties of ranunculus look like miniature peonies.

i love them, too:)
they are lovely flowers. aren't they?
