    Ah, perfect. I’d been looking for a Hot Cross bun recipe for this weekend and hadn’t thought of The Pioneer Woman yet. Thanks for the tiP!

    After a quick search I found instructions on how to make the Bread Roll Chicks! I think my children and I will be making these for Easter! Thanks for the inspiration!

    I did the bunny fold napkins last year. It was very cute, but only worked with the thinnest of my napkins because of how many folds there are — definitely would work best with very thin linen, somewhat slippery cloths.

    Totally doing the carrot crescent rolls this year. SO adorable. Yay for Amazon Prime delivering me the cream horn molds in time for easter!

    Here’s the link from the original blog on how to make the chick rolls — there’s a video!

    Hi Megan,

    Thanks so much for posting a link to my Crescent Roll Carrots. I have visited your blog so many times. You have some really fantastic ideas and I’m honored that you thought enough of my recipe to post it on your blog.

    Those chick rolls are the cutest breads I have ever seen! They will be perfect for easter basket blessing!

    All simply adorable! Ok, I’m getting older and my eyesight isn’t what it was. At first glance, I thought the bread was actually raw salmon wrapped around some cream cheese or something, which I thought would be yummy. However, when I saw how easy it was to make those crescent carrots, I was hooked. Great Idea.

    Um, those chick rolls are adorable!

    Also, thought you might be interested in our recent attempt to dye Easter eggs with only whole foods (beets, blueberries):

    I love the chick rolls, which is too bad for me! I am probably making dinner tomorrow night for a friend who observes Passover. I cannot fathom a way to make a no grain-no leavening way to make those rolls.

    I really like that you’re using photos with the links!

    Hi, didn’t you feature a paper bunny (origami) craft recently that had something to do with the Chinese zodiac (this being the Year of the Rabbit)? Do you have the link to that?

  • 13 Lauren // Apr 23, 2011 at 7:00 am

    Thank you, Erin. I just tried with my (unstarched) regular napkins and have a decidedly un-rabbit-like blobby triangle.

    I am not buying new napkins for this. :)

    […] I have no pictures, I have no post for you.  Nor could I find a good one to link to – just  this picture on the Not Martha site, which she found on Flikr, again with no recipe or instructions.  […]

    My carrot crescent rolls turned out pretty well, I just wish the molds were twice the size so I could have put more filling in!

  • 16 Erin // Apr 24, 2011 at 7:17 pm

    Lauren — no joke! I didn’t want to buy new napkins for it either, so I didn’t repeat the experiment this year :) I couldn’t really find any fun Easter napkin folding that didn’t require a ton of folds (hence wouldn’t work with everyday linen) or two different napkins (ex: orange and green for carrots). Impractical!

    I rally dig the Minimalist Pysanky! I don’t think they’re that minimalist at all. I used to dye eggs with onion skins and then scratch the designs off with a knife of other sharp object… These look more modern though.

    Love the bread chicks, so cute! ^_^
    Also just wanted to let you know that, unfortunately, your beautiful photos still refuse to show up in my Safari RSS reader.
