Springtime in Colorado: 70 degrees yesterday, blizzard conditions today. Snow is often the accompaniment to Easter around here; it is not unusual to see Easter dresses paired with snow boots. Honestly, if I think about it, it is like this in Colorado most of the time, not just in the spring. Always be prepared by packing shorts and snow boots.
Though it doesn’t look like it outside, Easter is only a few days away. I thought I’d highlight some recipes I have shared in the past year that would be great for your Easter celebration. Easter seems like a great time for decadent breakfast or brunch items and delicious desserts.
- Ham and Egg Cups. These are always a huge hit when I bring them to events. At my church, ham and egg cups are synonymous with the Pinewood Derby because they are a required menu item for the event breakfast.
- Mini Quiche. These are tasty and convenient because they can be made ahead of time and taste just as good reheated.
- Southwestern Egg Casserole. My favorite breakfast casserole. Cheesy and full of flavor with a spicy kick.
- Empty Tomb Rolls. These are an awesome and delicious treat to make with the kids while sharing the Easter story at the same time.
- Cinnamon Rolls. I posted these just recently. Do I need to say more? Yum.
- Puffed Oven Pancakes. With the addition of some strawberry sauce and whipped cream, these are so fancy and yet very easy.
- Blueberry Muffins: A classic breakfast treat bursting with fresh blueberries.
- Blueberry Buckle: For breakfast or dessert, this is a fabulous cake.
- Strawberry Bread: Spring strawberries are beginning to arrive in the grocery stores, so this bread would be a fabulous addition to Easter breakfast.
- Texas Potatoes. These are a holiday must-have for us. Cheesy potato goodness. (These could be for breakfast too.)
- Dinner Rolls. Soft and fluffy and quicker than most bread recipes.
- Deviled Eggs. An Easter classic. Also a great way to use all those extra boiled eggs you have around.
- Fruit Salad. A super easy fruit salad is a great accompaniment to an Easter meal. You can make it in only ten minutes!
- Coconut Cream Pie. A luscious classic for Easter dessert.
- Orange Dream Torte. An easy yet fancy option that features orange flavor.
- No-Bake Lemon Cheesecake. Lemon is a classic flavor for Easter.
- Banana Cream Pie. This was a standard in my family for the Easter get-together.
- Lemon Bars. Tart and fresh.
- French Silk Pie. For most people, chocolate is always fitting.
- Rice Krispie Treats. The kids always love these. Make them festive by cutting them into Easter egg shapes or adding spring sprinkles.
- Key Lime Pie. Another classic. The citrus flavors of lemon, lime, and orange always seem appropriate in the spring.
- Peanut Butter Easter Eggs. A great table decoration or treat for the Easter baskets.
Have a delicious Easter!
