Easter brings lots of things. Ham galore. Pastel everything. Fingers accidentally dyed along with the Easter eggs. And the need for a delicate balance of tradition and innovation on your table. We’ve got exactly that in terms of your Easter dinner, including appetizers and sides, desserts and, yes, deviled eggs.–Renee Schettler Rossi
A Trio of Deviled Eggs
Irresistible. That's what we think of this array of deviled eggs, which come in classic, smoked salmon, and lightly truffled. Better than mom's.
Southern Buttermilk Biscuits
"Spectacular." "Sinful." "Easy." "Airy." "Buttery." "Lofty." "Perfect." That's what folks are saying about these lovely buttermilk biscuits.
This towering traditional Easter bread bedecked with icing and sprinkles is easily recognizable. A hint of cardamom and saffron along with a dreamily delicate texture are what leave a lasting impression.
These elegant Parmesan soufflés are really easy to make. Honest. Seventeen minutes of effort until you have a towering creation.
Sweet Pea Crostini
Easy and elegant and unlike any crostini you've ever experienced thanks to sweet peas playing off salty pecorino.
Dr Pepper Glazed Ham
We, too, were startled by the shocker ingredient in this intriguingly sweet, Easter-rific glazed ham. Tasting is believing.
Easy Mashed Potatoes
Yeah, yeah, we know. You don't need a recipe for mashed Yukon Golds with butter, milk, and salt. Or so you think. Try this and get back to us.
Sometimes carrots aren't quite as sweet as we'd like them to be. This kid-tested tactic takes care of that occasional oops on the part of Mother Nature.
Spring Lamb with Rosemary
The perfect dish to usher in warm weather. Nothing but rosemary, garlic, salt, pepper, and a tour of duty in the oven.
Classic Dinner Rolls
Practically instant gratification with its blink-and-you'll-miss-it rise and its straightforward mixing method. And oooooh the taste!
Brown Betty Bakery Coconut Cake
Dubbed Company's Comin' Coconut Cake, this beauty of a pound cake will have you dreaming up excuses to bake dessert. Even if for no other reason than you want it.
Ina Garten's Lemon Cake
Know when you taste something and can't help but pause and sigh with content? This subtly sweet lemon cake does that to us each and every darn time.
Lemon Meringue Pie
An almost-but-not-quite-classic rendition of lemon meringue pie that's a lot less effort than you’d expect. And more payback than you can imagine in terms of its perfectly balanced sweetly tart lemon custard.
Dyed Easter Eggs
Ditch the fizzy artificially dyed tablets for something more natural. And inexpensive. And made from kitchen scraps you'd otherwise toss in the trash.
