Good Friday Verses and Resurrection Quotes

Here is a collection of Good Friday verses and resurrection quotes to help celebrate the Easter season.

You are loved more than you will ever know by someone who died to know you. Romans 5:8
He is Risen.
It is not your life and your past that determine your life. It is Christ’s life and His past that determine your life.
It is finished.

Easy Easter or Spring Dessert Idea

Easy Flowerpot Trifles

These flowerpot chocolate trifle desserts, that are prepared in small pots, create the illusion of new growth with spring flowers. Each trifle is layered with chunks of chocolate cake or brownies, chocolate pudding or mousse, whipped cream and Skor bar, and then topped with a decorative flower and leaf. These are easier to make than you think and make a delightful and delicious Easter or spring dessert!

On my blog here at Rachel Home and Life, I may sometimes use affiliate links, which means a small commission is earned if you make a purchase via the link. The price you pay will be the same whether you use the affiliate link or go directly to the vendor’s website using a non-affiliate link.

Use 4 (or however many you may need) unglazed, untreated terra cotta flowerpots(each with a 6 ounce capacity, about 2 3/4 inch tall and 2 3/4 inches across the top). Thoroughly wash the new pots in soap and hot water before using.

Ingredients:

(For 4 Flowerpot Trifles)

1 small chocolate cake(either a mix, from scratch, or store bought)or pan of brownies(you’ll probably have leftovers)

1/2 cup whipping cream

2 Skor chocolate bars

2 small containers (440g each) chocolate pudding snacks or 1 box Jello chocolate mouse

4 decorative icing flowers and leaves(I purchased mine from the Bulk Barn). If you can’t find any, just use mint leaves and omit the flowers to still give the illusion of new growth.

Directions:

I was in a hurry and so just used store-bought two-bite brownies, chocolate pudding snacks and flower wafer decorations. I found the flower decorations and Skor chocolate bars at the Bulk Barn.

If you’re making the cake, make it according to package directions and then cool. If you’re making the chocolate mousse, make it according to package directions. Whip the cream and sweeten to taste.

Chunk and crumble cake. Break up Skor bars. I used bigger chunks within the layers of trifle and then smaller, finer crumbs or pieces to resemble small pebbles or dirt on the the top layer.

In each terra cotta pot start with a bottom layer of chunks of cake, then a layer of mousse, whipped cream and Skor bar. Repeat layers. For the top layer I used chocolate pudding and then the Skor bar crumbs and a decorative wafer/icing flower and leaf. Store in fridge until ready to serve.

Julienne Vegetable Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

A colourful and crisp salad idea, this salad recipe is best made ahead of time for flavours to blend.

On my blog here at Rachel Home and Life, I may sometimes use affiliate links, which means a small commission is earned if you make a purchase via the link. The price you pay will be the same whether you use the affiliate link or go directly to the vendor’s website using a non-affiliate link.

Ingredients:

1 cup sliced green beans 2 inch lengths

1 cup julienne strips of carrot 2 inch lengths

1 cup julienne strips of zucchini 2 inch lengths

1/2 cup snap peas

1/2 cup mushrooms

Salt and pepper to taste

Lettuce leaves(or a mix of spring greens), torn in bite sized pieces

Lemon Vinaigrette

2 Tbsp olive oil

1/4 cup lemon juice

2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley

2 Tbsp chopped chives

1 clove garlic, minced

Julienne strips:

Blanche the green beans, carrots and snap peas in boiling water for one minute. Immediately drain and plunge into cold water. Drain when cool and dry well. Combine green beans, carrot, zucchini, snap peas and mushrooms.

Combine vinaigrette ingredients in a small bowl and mix well. Pour over vegetables, toss well and place on top of lettuce leaves. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.

Enjoy! I used a mix of spring greens(baby lettuces, baby kale, arugula, baby chard, baby spinach, radicchio) that came in a salad kit from the grocery store.
