Meet Christy Rost

Public Television chef and host Christy Rost is the author of three cookbooks, a television and radio personality, lifestyle authority, entertaining guru, cooking teacher, recipe developer, home restoration expert, Registered Nurse, and popular guest chef for food and wine festivals, home shows, women’s expos, major retailers, and charity events.

Based in Texas and passionately dedicated to the celebration of Home and Family, Christy’s focus on sustainability, farm to plate, cooking with local ingredients, and food and wine pairings is heavily influenced by the months she lives and works in her recently-restored 1898 Breckenridge, Colorado historic mountain home. Conversing with farmers, ranchers, wine producers, distillers and food artisans, and being intimately connected each day with the land, water, and nature, has a profound effect on Christy’s commitment to sustainability.

Let's Celebrate Easter!
March 27, 2016

It may be Easter, but it's been snowing rather heavily at Swan's Nest the past three days, so any thought of the Easter Bunny hiding colored eggs outdoors has been tabled until another year. My husband Randy and I tease that should we forge ahead and hide eggs anyway, knowing that either a fox will get them or we'll find them sometime in May after the thaw.

This year's Easter celebration won't miss a beat though, because the Easter Bunny is delivering a basket of egg-shaped Orange Cream Easter Cookies. These tender, orange-flavored cookies garnished with a thin layer of frosting and a sprinkle of tinted sugar, look every bit as festive as Easter eggs, and will add a festive touch to any Easter celebration.
