I'm really pleased to say this week's weather seems to be pulling itself together. Last year Easter week in St Andrews hit the low 80's, and I remember it well because I had to shave my legs so I could wear a sundress.

We're having guests for spaghetti and meatballs tonight but I'm just itching for barbecue season. Come on, Spring!

This weekend we're seeing the Passion play at Trafalgar Square with friends we met in St Andrews, having two egg hunts (one American-style in the park, because), and maybe taking a day trip out of London if weather permits. As usual, we're flying by the seat of our pants (trousers?) and our Easter meal menu is still tbd. What are you cooking?

As promised, I'm sharing the easy, nothing-nourishing-about-it Rice Krispy treat recipe below. Little hands love to help with this one. Enjoy! ;)

Rice Krispy Treats


6 cups krispy rice cereal 
1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) butter
4 cups (about 10 ounces) American-style marshmallows (these must be the white American-style ones. We have tried with others and they do not yield the same result)


Pre-measure marshmallows and cereal. Set aside.

Melt butter in large sauce pan over low heat, stirring regularly to prevent browning. 

Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat and add cereal, stirring quickly, until cereal is evenly coated.

Press mixture evenly into a buttered pan. Allow to cool, then cut into squares (or any shape you choose).
