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.
