Easter Desserts at the Market

Flying Monkey's cupcakes--love those sprinkles!

Talk about eye candy...Easter just wouldn't be Easter without this homage to the delicious array of sweet breads, pastries and cakes now on sale at the Market.  These caught our eye - so what's your favorite treat this Holiday?

Easter cookies from Termini's, too lovely to eat.....almost.
Easter Bread from Termini's--perfect for brunch, and pretty enough to use as a centerpiece, at least until it's eaten!
Metropolitan Bakery's Flourless Chocolate Torte and Linzer Fruit Tart

 And if you fancy something lighter, we recommend our friend Marcy's  Citrus Fruit Salad.

For this simple recipe, you will need a selection of citrus fruits currently in season.  We like grapefruit, ruby grapefruit, orange, pineapple, blood oranges - for their pretty color.  Chop into bite sized chunks.  Take 2 cups of unsweetened orange juice and a teaspoon of honey.  Bring both ingredients gently to the boil.  Set aside until cool.  Combine all ingredients and refrigerate.  We find that it's best to chill the salad overnight, as this reduces the acidity of the fruits.  We would then suggest serving this light and healthy dessert with one of the slightly naughty Easter cookies or chocolates now in at the Market.

Happy Holidays!
