It wasn’t even our birthday, but that didn’t stop us from celebrating Cake Week! These past couple days have been all sweets all day long, and to be honest, we’ve never felt more prepared for Easter. From revisiting our all-time favorite 1-2-3-4 cake on Facebook live, to Instagram takeovers from our friends Dawn Perry and Joy the Baker, there was plenty of #cake #content whirling around, and what’s not to love about that? Oh, and did we mention that we made what might be the cutest easter basket cake of all time? Just saying.

Cake madness aside, we spent a good portion of this week tying together all those loose ends in order to get ready for Easter and Passover (both of which fall this weekend). We nailed down what it takes to host or attend the most epic Easter potluck, and we set the record straight on unique Easter dishes around the world. When it comes to dying Easter eggs, you better believe we have you covered (the natural way, of course). And we can’t forget about Passover–if you’re heading to the store to pick out some brisket for your seder, here’s what you need to keep in mind.


Aside from all the holiday excitement, we’re also starting to tackle the new season and all that spring entails. We dug deep into what it means to actually spring clean your kitchen, as well as why it’s important to promote positive energy in your kitchen. It’s more important than you may think. And no, we promise this isn’t just some random yoga-zen-maestro phase.

Lastly, we embarked on what might be one of the most demanding, rigorous stunts of journalism that we’ve tackled in a while. We challenged ourselves to dream up over ONE HUNDRED ways to use Trader Joe’s Everything Bagel Seasoning (A.K.A. the best way to spend $2 that we can possibly think of), and you better believe that we did. It was difficult and quite trying at times, but the team here at MyRecipes does everything in the name of service around here. So please, for the love of all that is good and right in this world, please go read all the wild ways to use this addictive seasoning and DO IT. We’re not just making this stuff up for fun, okay?
