This is the menu I make when it's my turn to host Easter dinner. You can see a lot of the recipes in Traditional Easter Dinner, Step by Step.

Set the table using your best china and crystal, and be sure to decorate the place settings with flowers. I like to put a couple of flower buds in tiny vases at each place setting; in fact, you can use those vases as place cards. Open the windows if it's a nice day outside, and if it's cold and rainy (or snowy, which has been known to happen), build a fire in the fireplace.

Then enjoy the meal with family and friends. Happy Easter!


Traditional Easter Dinner

  • Sour Cream Pesto Dip
    This dip can be served with everything from crackers to crisp bread sticks to baby carrots, mushrooms, and celery. Put it in a pretty bowl on a platter to serve.
  • Honey Butter Ham
    This beautiful ham is coated with a mixture of butter, honey, brown sugar, and mustard. The whole cloves make it look beautiful and add a spicy taste.
  • Potatoes Grand Mere
    This perfect recipe is just the thing to complement the tender ham. It's rich and creamy and delicious.
  • Parker House Rolls
    These rolls set the gold standard for me - and for many of you too! Be sure to follow the directions carefully.
  • Roasted Asparagus
    Asparagus really starts to appear in the markets at this time. Roasting the tender spears brings out their flavor.
  • Frozen Fruit Salad
    This easy and delicious fruit salad recipe can be made days ahead of time.
  • Lemon Truffled Pie
    I love this pie and have to make it every Easter. A creamy white chocolate layer is topped with homemade lemon curd. Yum.
  • My Sister's Lemon Meringue Pie
    This is the best Lemon Meringue Pie ever, and my sister makes it better than anybody in the world. Including me.
