“EGGcellent” Easter Bread

Hey everyone it is almost Easter Sunday and I know we all have our own traditions for how or what we celebrate.  When I first started living with one of my roommates he introduced me to “Easter bread” that his mom makes.  His mom mails one down every year for Easter and I look forward to it each time. Unfortunately, my roommate went home for Easter so his mom didn’t mail down an Easter bread so I decided to go looking for a recipe on my own.  I found a blog called theitaliandishblog.com that had a pretty appetizing recipe for Easter bread.  Check out their Easter bread and let them know how you feel about it.
