2012 Easter Egg Roll in Baldwin Park
I mentioned these delicious foods in a post on one of my other blogs on Sunday: Weekend Gratitude: Welcoming Touches. My friend Judy made them for Dinner with Friends, which she and her husband Bart hosted in their home for eight of us from Lake Baldwin Church.  I wish I'd gotten a picture of the chicken, too, since it was as pretty as it was yummy.  I definitely went back for seconds!

Judy sent the recipes along with this verse, a comforting word from Jesus: "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16:33

If you'd like to read about another cake taken to a Lake Baldwin event (this one by me, with less than perfect results though still delicious), take a peek here: Hope, Joy, and Pineapple Coconut Bundt Cake.
