Easter Recipe Ideas

It's been some time since my last post, but with Easter around the corner, I thought this would be the perfect moment to dig through the archives and share some of my favorite recipes that would go well with any spring feast. Spring hasn't quite sprung yet here in Chicago (though the upcoming weekend weather forecast has me more optimistic), but here are some recipes to get you in the mood for the season.

Hot Cross Buns are a traditional Easter treat.

Sticky Meyer Lemon Rolls are addictive, and best shared with a group at brunch.

Consider this light and relatively healthy savory spinach bread pudding.

I'm definitely missing California berries. Try using some in these awesome strawberry cheesecake muffins.

Asparagus is just coming into season and this simple asparagus mimosa is a great, fresh way to use them.

This strawberry and lemon curd tart is one of my favorite ways to bridge the gap with winter citrus and spring berries. Even though temperatures are still a bit chilly in Chicago, this reminds me that warmer days are around the corner.

As always, I hope you enjoy the holiday with family and friends that you love.
