I always like to think of Easter as our official start of spring, but I also remember that each year, I become the biggest sucker around and buy my girls beautiful Easter dresses. You know the ones… the sleeveless dresses, bathed in beautiful pastel colors, created with light and breezy fabric.
In my typical ways, I buy the dresses, take the tags off, then remember I live in Kansas…the land of weather never being what it is supposed to be on Easter Sunday. I don’t believe my girls have ever experienced searching for Easter eggs without their dresses hidden under heavy coats, mittens and scarves.
Even though our weather in Kansas may not be spring like by Easter, I won’t let that stop me from making spring like dishes for Easter.
These light and flaky Athens Mini Fillo Shells filled with creamy blueberry mousse are the most simple, springlike dessert… easy enough to make, you can get outside to enjoy that frigid Easter egg hunt!
