In this episode of “The Chef, You and I Show,” guests Rosilynn and Katelyn join Kathryn as they get ready for Easter, They prepare lots of exciting things that Rosilynn and Katlyn enjoy getting their hands into. Together we made a Bunny Snack (aka Easter Bunny Bait), Easter Egg Fruit Pizza, Purple Rice Krispies Bunny nests with Candy eggs, and Candy carrots in a pot. We had so much fun, so check it out, and enjoy the recipes. We also found some pastel-colored eggs that we made into deviled eggs and created a lovely vegetable tray with a dip in a “bunny” bowl.
Melt the orange candy melts in the microwave according to the directions on the package. Then dip the strawberries into the orange melts, scrape off any excess, and lay them wax paper or a baking rack sprayed with cooking spray. Put some of the melted orange candy melts into a zip-top sandwich bag. Cut off the corner and drizzle a zig-zag line across the orange strawberries for a “carrot”-type look.
Crush some Oreos in a zip-top bag with a rolling pin. About 1 Oreo per pudding cup.
Open the Snack Pack Pudding cups with the easy open lid and sprinkle some Oreo “dirt” into the top of each pudding cup. Dip a “carrot” strawberry into them and enjoy!
*There is enough candy melt to dip 1lb of strawberries, although you will only need 6 strawberries for the 6 count SUPER Snack Pack.

Permission From Marina’s Kitchen -Original recipe from Lida’s Italy
1Poundor a little more Circle B Ranch boneless center-cut pork loin
2teaspoonscoarse sea salt or kosher saltor to taste
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/2cupall-purpose flour or more
6Tablespoonsextra-virgin olive oilor more if needed
5Tablespoonsbutteror more if needed
2Tablespoonsfinely chopped shallots
2cupssliced fresh mushroomslarge white Mushrooms
1cuplight stockchicken, turkey, or vegetable broth, or more if needed
2Tablespoonschopped fresh Italian parsley
Trim the pork loin, leaving only a thin layer of fat, and cut it crosswise into twelve equal slices. Using a meat mallet (or other heavy implement), flatten and spread the slices into scaloppine about 1/4 inch thick. Season lightly on both sides with salt and freshly ground pepper. Dredge the scaloppine in the flour, coating both sides, and shake off the excess.
Meanwhile, put 4 Tablespoons of the olive oil and 2 Tablespoons of the butter in the skillet, set over medium-high heat. When the butter begins to bubble, lay four or more scaloppine in the skillet – as many as can lie flat without crowding – and let them sizzle in place until the underside is opaque and tinged with brown, about 3 minutes. Flip them over and color the second side for a couple of minutes; then lift out the slices, let the fat drain off, and put them on a platter. Add a bit more olive oil and/or butter to the skillet if it seems dry, and fry the rest of the scaloppine in the same way.
When all of the pork is browned, pour off the frying oil but leave any crusty caramelization in the skillet. Put in the remaining 2 Tablespoons of olive oil and 3 Tablespoons of butter, and return to medium-high heat. When the butter is foaming, drop in the shallots and sage leaves, and cook, stirring for a minute. Scatter the sliced mushrooms in the pan, season with 1/2 teaspoon salt, and stir continuously as the mushrooms sizzle and start to release their juices. Cook, tossing and stirring, until the moisture has evaporated and the mushroom slices are shrunken, soft and caramelized, 6 minutes or more.
Pour in the Marsala, raise the heat, and stir until it boils. Let the wine bubble and reduce for a minute or two, then stir in the stock. Bring to a boil, and cook at a gentle bubbling pace until the sauce is slightly viscous but loose, about 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper.
One by one, slide the scaloppine into the simmering sauce, and pour in any juices accumulated on the platter. Shake the pan, spoon sauce over the scaloppine, and flip them over once or twice, until they are heated through and glistening with sauce on both sides. If the sauce is too dense to coat all the meat, loosen it with a bit of stock. Turn off the heat, sprinkle the parsley all over, and serve.

Make the pimento cheese spread. In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, Cheddar, pimento peppers and cream cheese. Stir until evenly combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
