Cookie ingredients
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c butter
1 egg
2 T milk
1/2 t baking soda
1 t vanilla extract
2 1/2 c flour
Cream sugar, softened butter and egg with hand or stand mixer. Add milk and vanilla extract, mix. Add baking soda and flour, mix until combined. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and place in fridge for at least one hour. When ready to bake, preheat over to 350 degrees. Roll out dough on a floured surface to desired thickness, cut out Easter shapes with cookie cutters. Place on cookie sheet and bake 9-11 minutes. Allow to cool completely while preparing icing.
Icing ingredients
1/3 c butter
1-3 T milk
1 t vanilla extract
Powdered sugar
Food coloring
Melt butter, add milk (1 T to start) and vanilla extract. Add powdered sugar until desired, spreadable consistency reached. If it gets too thick, add another T of milk. Divvy icing into separate bowls, add food coloring for desired colors and decorate!

Asparagus, Egg & Bacon Salad

Provided by Erin Page, managing editor
Ingredients
Bundle of asparagus
Spinach or arugula
6-8 slices of cooked bacon
4-6 eggs, hardboiled and sliced
2 T olive oil
2 T red wine vinegar
1 t dijon mustard
1 t honey
pepper to taste
Bring a pot of water to a boil, add asparagus and cook 2-3 minutes, until just tender (as an alternative, asparagus can be steamed until just tender). Drain and run under cold water to stop from cooking further. Mix with several handfuls of spinach or arugula, top with crumbled cooked bacon and sliced hardboiled eggs. Prepare dressing: in a small bowl, whisk olive oil, red wine vinegar, mustard, honey and pepper to taste. Drizzle dressing over salad mixture.
