In case it wasn’t obvious when Aunt Beatrice showed up at your door with a giant ham and a box of wine, it’s Easter Sunday. That means there’s not much happening around town, so we recommend staying home and enjoying a nice family dinner. Or locking yourself in the basement and enjoying a nice escape from family dinner.

We can contribute to the day’s festivities, though, with one of our famous Insider recipes. Here’s how to make a delectable dessert we like to call “peanut butter chocolate bunnies.”

∎  Grab a pot from the cabinet. Pour in two cups of water.

∎  Boil water. Continue boiling water until evaporated.

∎  Isn’t science cool! Place pot back in cabinet.

∎  Take plastic grass out of Easter basket and form a sweet hula-style apron. Style points count in the kitchen, people.

∎  Take peanut butter out of cabinet.

∎  Remove chocolate bunny from Easter basket.

∎  Apply peanut butter to bunny.

  Chill and serve. Garnish with more peanut butter, if desired. Bon appetit!

There’s nothing wrong with looking ahead a little bit while we’re eating. You’re not going to want to miss an appearance by heralded litigators Theodore Olson and David Boies at the Capitol Center for the Arts at 6 p.m. May 17. The pair recently argued the unconstitutionality of California’s gay marriage ban and will be the featured guests in an installment of the Constitutionally Speaking series entitled “How Does the Constitution Keep Up with the Times?”

New Hampshire Public Radio’s Laura Knoy will moderate.

Why such advance notice for an event, you say? Because tickets are already going fast. The event is free but requires reserved seating. So visit or call 225-1111 to lock down your spot now.
