For me -- and for many Southerners, I presume -- Easter is the first real mark
of spring. We dress our houses and tables (and even ourselves) to
impress, pulling out all the stops from the freshest flowers to the fanciest flatware. We join together to celebrate a time of joy, renewal, and
life. And then we eat! Here's a look back at my own Easter weekend celebration, with a recipe for a classic Southern ham, warm and glossy with a mustard glaze.
