And what would a good Easter brunch be without some donuts?! I’ve seen so many Easter goodies on Pinterest lately that look like bird nests and Easter baskets. They are seriously so adorable!  I clearly needed to get in on the cuteness action, so I made a baked coconut donut and decorated it to look like a nest.

Happy Friday everybody! Is anything better than Friday? I really don’t think so! Sure you still have to wake up and go to work or school – but the promise of the weekend is ahead.

Blackberries and coconut, in the winter? Why not! I am channeling the tropics this weekend, trying to pretend that I am lying on a beach somewhere warm rather than looking out at a cold gray city skyline. And nothing says tropical more than coconut!

And so I came up with this blackberry coconut bread.
