Recipes for the Perfect Easter Meal

   How in the world is it already almost Easter?  This year has FLOWN by but as much as I cannot believe it, the truth is, Easter will be here in just a few weeks.  I'm trying to make life easier on you by putting some of my best recipes here in one spot for you to be able to plan your perfect Easter brunch and Easter dinner.

For Easter Brunch:

  French Toast Casserole is perfect for Easter Brunch.  It makes a cake pan full of moist and delicious French Toast without all the work of making them individually.

    And don't forget the coffee:  French Vanilla Coffee or perhaps a Double Chocolate Chip Frappe is more to your taste.  No matter which you decide, both are a perfect start to your Easter morning.

    Now that brunch is over and done with, let's move on to Easter Dinner.  Here is a list of recipes to help you host a memorable holiday, all in one place.

Easter Dinner:

     My Pineapple Glazed Ham is a crowd favorite.  It turns out moist and packed with flavor.

    In the South, no meal is complete without potatoes and no matter whether you prefer Sweet Potatoes or Homemade Mashed Potatoes, we got you covered!

    A very elegant vegetable to serve that not only tastes wonderful but looks good too is Oven Roasted Asparagus.  They turn out tender, flavorful and are a vibrant green and are a perfect addition to your holiday table.

    I like their to be several different "colors" of food when I host dinner parties because your table setting looks more complete and polished this way.  I love to cook these Honey Glazed Carrots for several reasons.  Number one they are orange; number two they taste AMAZING and number three they cook in the crock pot so they are almost effortless to make. 

     And of course, no meal is complete without bread.  We often serve an Artisan Loaf of Homemade Bread.

Drinks & Desserts:


     Why not mix up a punch bowl full of Sparkling Pineapple Punch.  It is the perfect combination of sweet and tangy in a cool and refreshing beverage.  

     Our Easter Holiday consists of having our big meal and then we go outside and hide the Easter eggs for the kids and then we play horseshoes, volleyball or just sit around and shoot the breeze.  The day goes long into the night so with that in mind, we often cook several desserts to be nibbled on all day long.  Some of our most popular choices are:

     Chocolate Mousse Pie.  Yes, it tastes just as scrumptious as it looks.

    For the adults, a more "grown-up" dessert choice would be cannolis.

    And last but not least Cranberry Chocolate Chip Bread.

    Well, I hope I have at least given you some inspiration and I pray you each have a wonderful Easter!
