Hidden Art Friday

hot cross bunsHot cross buns are traditionally eaten on Good Friday, which is why I’m sharing our family’s favorite recipe for them today.  (It’s Martha Stewart’s Hot Cross Buns with Dried Cherries.)  I’m not always a Martha fan, but these are pretty straightforward and yummy (and best eaten fresh).  However, we don’t have them on Good Friday.  My husband doesn’t get the day off and leaves for work before the kids wake up, and we like having special breakfasts as a family.  So we eat our hot cross buns on Easter morning, before church (which means I have to get up at the crack of dawn, which is appropriate for Easter morning, right?).  Growing up, our church had amazing Easter potluck breakfasts, where we feasted after celebrating with a sunrise service.  I still use my mom’s old church cookbook recipes for the sides of our Easter meal.  What will you be feasting on this weekend?
