There is no need to worry about what Easter dishes you are going to be serving this year! I've got 55 Easter Recipe Ideas from some of my favorite bloggers. We've got everything from vegan Easter desserts (with zero sacrifice) to meaty mains. There is a little something for everyone, with enough options to keep you in Easter recipe ideas for years to come. The only problem? Deciding which of these fantastic Easter dishes is going to make it to your table! I see three or four desserts I need for sure.
I have such vivid memories of Easter as a child.
I can remember how proud I was to go to church in my new Easter Dress, and how excited I was when I to wake up and see what was in my Easter Basket.
My favorite years were those that we spend at my Grandmother's house.
She was quite the Southern cook, and never short on Easter recipe ideas that had been passed down to her through the generations. There was almost always a ham, and she usually made two or three Easter desserts.
One thing was for sure: you were never going to be hungry when the meal was over.
I love celebrating Easter with my family. Now that I'm the one in charge of the menu, I'm always on the look-out for Easter Recipe ideas to keep the menu fresh! I tend to stray from tradition a lot more than my Grandmother did.
I am excited to share this round-up of Easter Recipes from my favorite bloggers around the web.
