How was your Easter?

Instagram photos are never the best, especially after a couple of Jell-O shots.

If you celebrated yesterday, how was it? And if Easter isn’t on your calendar, how was your weekend? The weather was darn near perfect and I hope we all enjoyed it.

We had 35 people for Easter dinner and everyone brought something, which means the food was much better than if I had made everything myself. One guest even brought petits fours and deviled eggs—that were actually Jell-O shots! It was awesome.

The only thing I actually made for Easter dinner was butterflied leg of lamb. (Ordered the lamb, already butterflied, from New York Butcher Shop and used a fantastic recipe from America’s Test Kitchen. Straight up bought the ham from Honeybaked Ham, because why try to improve on perfection?)

But I have been cooking, just not on such a grand level. Over on the Goodwill blog, I’ve also been reminiscing over my favorite small appliance, which happens to be older than I am. And I made up a quiz for Free Times to help you find the exact right kind of summer camp for your kids. (Disclaimer: Quiz is not scientific and is for entertainment purposes only, but I won’t fault you if you take the advice anyway.) For The Kitchn, I answered the question you’ve been asking for years: When should you try a DIY appliance repair?

What other questions do you have? I offer advice with abandon. Most of it’s dubious, but at least I usually include jokes with the advice.

  1. I had my moments of connection: holding hands with my neighbors during the Lord’s prayer, sharing a meal with family, watching the lady in the wheelchair in the pew in front of me pull herself up, determined to stand through “Christ the Lord Has Risen Today,” seeing fellow Christians raise their hands in joy.
