 How come an Easter "Bunny" and Why did he leave Eggs?

I never questioned this as a youth, I just wanted the eggs,
especially the chocolate ones also the marshmellow Peeps.

So now I question almost everything, unless it is something
I am afraid may destroy a wonderful myth I am not ready to give up yet!

Anyway this story starts with not a Greek goddess as you may suspect, but up in England an Anglo-Saxon goddess of Spring, Estore.

Eoster loved children and they loved her so much that they followed her everywhere. Her favorite animal was the rabbit. So how did the rabbit or bunny end up bringing eggs to all the children ?

This is our history of my grandmother and how she came over from Germany at the turn of the century.

Her German heritage blended with the new world and her new family and this is her story and the recipes that go with it.

We discuss our heritage and German recipes and German food history in this newsletter
