SWEET BREAD

Since I was a young teen, I have made this bread every year for Easter. Why? TRADITION! Roasting whole lamb on an outside spit with groups of family willing to rotate basting, while laughing and drinking throughout the night. Red (only) eggs dyed with a concentrated powder as dark as […]
