At daybreak on the first day of the week
the women who had come from Galilee with Jesus
took the spices they had prepared
and went to the tomb.
They found the stone rolled away from the tomb;
but when they entered,
they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
While they were puzzling over this, behold,
two men in dazzling garments appeared to them.
They were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground.
They said to them,
“Why do you seek the living one among the dead?
He is not here, but he has been raised.
Remember what he said to you while he was still in Galilee,
that the Son of Man must be handed over to sinners
and be crucified, and rise on the third day.”
And they remembered his words.
Then they returned from the tomb
and announced all these things to the eleven
and to all the others.
The women were Mary Magdalene, Joanna, and Mary the mother of James;
the others who accompanied them also told this to the apostles,
but their story seemed like nonsense
and they did not believe them.
But Peter got up and ran to the tomb,
bent down, and saw the burial cloths alone;
then he went home amazed at what had happened.

-Luke 24:1-12

Wishing a very Happy Easter to all who celebrate it!

    Isn’t it amazing to know that he died for us and now lives for us? Thank you for this post.

    hmmm. i used to enjoy reading this blog for recipes, and had your cookbook already in my amazon cart for my next purchase. but this over the top christian post has not only made me want to not give you any of my money, it’s made me certain that i’m not going to give you any more of my time.

    if you want to have a religious blog, by all means do so. but you should know that there are those of us horrified by the scourge of religion, and that posting something supporting it will lose you at least some support.

      Sarah- First of all, I don’t have a cookbook for sale on Amazon or anywhere else. I don’t know whose book you thought you were buying, but it wasn’t mine. Second, this is my blog and that means I get to post whatever I want on it, as long as I don’t break any laws – just as you have the right to not read it. I very rarely post about religious or political issues on this site. Easter Sunday is one of those few times I do. It was certainly not my intent to offend anyone with this post, and I am sorry that you were offended. But, I stand behind my right to publish that post. Does the fact that I am a Christian make my recipes any less interesting, or my photos any less appealing? Does it make me suddenly a different person than who you though I was? If so, then you have the right to move on. The last time I checked, I was the one paying for the upkeep of this site and providing all of the blood, sweat and tears to keep it going. When you start paying my bills, then you might have something to say about my content. Until then, I call the shots.

      BTW, I’d hardly call this post “over the top”. It’s a video with Barbara Bonney, a very gifted singer singing a Mozart aria complemented by photos of great masterworks of art. The text is an excerpt from the Bible. Why does that scare you so?

    What a beautiful post and happy belated Easter. As for Sarah – she can move on, her loss :) Your response was well said Susan – and perhaps you should be publishing a cookbook on Amazon soon, no?

    Beautiful post, Susan! I hope you and your family had a lovely Easter.

    Oh, Sarah? God bless you. 😉

    Susan, first of all, Happy Easter – belated though it may be. Secondly, sorry I have been absent for so long. Work, family issues (happy ocassions only thankfully) and just life in general have kept me running off my feet and I have been neglecting blogging and everything Internet (mine included). This I had to comment on because I really wanted to send you my support. Your response was perfect: polite, to the point, firm and fiesty! We will never agree 100% with every blogger we enjoy reading, nor will our readers always agree with us 100% but that’s what makes life what it is … n’est pas? Would it have been so difficult for this one reader to just ignore the post she didn’t like and move on? The only thing I know for sure is that one of the reasons why your blog is a pleasure to read is because you put so much of yourself in your posts. Your emotions and personality shine through and that’s why people keep coming back. Yes your recipes are enticing and your photographs are lovely, but those are only part of the whole. Let’s call them the main ingredients shall we – the added spice to your blog is the charm and wit that shines through. The family anecdotes, the accidents and pitfalls of your daily life. The fact that we know about your love of music and the love you have for your family, your hopes, your achievements and desires. If tomorrow I were to find out that your political views were the complete opposite of mine I would simply not care. After all, there is so much more for us to share. Be proud of what you have accomplished here and if some folks abandon you along the way, others will join you. In the end you will fail only if you stop being true to yourself. Baci e abbracci.

    Hi Susan

    Greetings from South Africa. I love your post. Everything about it. Thank you also for the Easter message – so pleased there are people making it their business to tell others Jesus is alive! Thanks for all you put in. Can you perhaps help with a recipe for Balsamic Fig Syrup or Balsamic Fig Sauce – I want to make my own. Had cooked an oversupply of fig jam and would like to turn it into something else. Thank you so much!
