For us, Easter always begins with a great breakfast. We love to take time to start the morning together.

Breakfast is the perfect way to start the day.  One great dish is Cheesy Baked Eggs!  These delicious eggs can be made ahead of time and baked in the morning.

Easter Dinner

Our Easter dinner usually takes place midday – around 2:00. This is our main meal and it usually includes a baked ham, several side dishes and a yummy dessert.

Easter dinner doesn’t have to be difficult, but it should be special.  This baked ham with citrus glaze  is always a hit.

    Hey Kathy – I hope you all had a beautiful Easter. What a great collection of Easter recipes here. The ham looks extra delish w/the citrus glaze and I love your softly colored Easter eggs with natural dyes. We had a nice Easter too, but one of the kids has mono and has had a lot of complications. We had to cxl our Easter dinner with guests just an hour before. I felt bad, but what do you do? We were headed to the ER. Hope everyone is well at your house and you are welcoming spring. (It was snowing here this morning….sigh) Hope ‘springs” eternal.

      Oh my goodness! I hope everyone is okay. We had snow on Easter too….although we were out of town so we didn’t really get the full dose of Mother Nature playing April Fools on everyone!

    I love this lineup of Easter recipes, Kathy! Easter might be over, but I’m still craving all of these…especially those puff pastry pinwheels and the ham. (Just not together…haha!) We had a low-key Easter here as our families both live a long ways off, but we still had fun. Hope you and the family had a great holiday! 🙂

      Thanks, David! It snowed on Easter Day…maybe that’s just Mother Nature’s way of saying April Fools!
