Easter is this weekend, and I am preparing a big dinner for 10 guests on Sunday afternoon. I love the foods of Easter; there are recipes I only make for this holiday (like these fried rolls from my mother's family recipe box). What about you? Do you celebrate Easter with any special foods? A bunny cake, perhaps? Or do you just show up for the jellybeans and chocolate bunnies?
Personally, I find Easter to be the best food holiday of the year. This year I am going to braise a large leg of lamb, bake a huge honey-colored braided loaf, roast golden beets, and grate fresh horseradish. I plan on making curried deviled eggs, and little lemon puddings.
This is the kind of food I like best — it's even better than Thanksgiving and Christmas.
What about you? What are your favorite Easter foods and recipes? Do you do ham? Lamb? A brunch? What are your plans for Easter food this year?
