What are you cooking this weekend? Are you celebrating Passover? Or Easter, perhaps? Tell us what you're cooking to celebrate spring and the spring holidays, and, since at least one reader has written to ask us about what to cook for an Easter brunch, here's a roundup of some splendid recipes for Sunday morning.
Lisbeth wrote to us saying,
I need dessert help! Since the weather this weekend is going to be gorgeous in NYC, my family has opted for a Picnic Easter outside somewhere, instead of a cooped up Formal Easter. We are five adults and one 2 and a half year old, and I'd like to make something springy, portable and festive for dessert.... but I'm stumped! Any help?
Well, Lis, try a recipe from this list, and maybe our readers will have some good advice for you too! We've marked the desserts below that we think would be most portable for an Easter picnic — what a lovely prospect, by the way!
