When I think about Easter, there are a number of foods that immediately come to mind. They include hard-boiled eggs, ham, and roast leg of lamb, not to mention jelly beans, Peeps, and Cadbury eggs. But above all else, the one thing that stands out as the food of the season is hot cross buns.
Growing up I could always count on my mom to bring home a fresh package of hot cross buns, the second they hit the shelves. Over time I came to learn the tradition behind this seasonal sweet.
