Firstly, happy World Baking Day, happy St Patrick’s Day and happy holidays! School is almost out and there’s a flurry of activity as everyone begins prepping for the chocolate marathon ahead.

If you’re concerned about the temptation that comes with being surrounded by all the alluring treats, you might like to read our article – how to avoid eating all the Easter eggs this year.

I am equal parts proud (and slightly disappointed) with myself that I haven’t had one single Easter egg yet. Oi vey!

Apart from the chocolate, I’m also looking forward to getting into the kitchen for a full-blown baking bash! There are so many glorious Easter- themed baking recipes on Food24 that it’s hard to choose between them all.
