As this post goes up, I’m probably stuffing my face with a medialuna for breakfast, but I wanted to make sure that I popped in to wish you all a Happy Easter/Resurrection Sunday (whichever you prefer to call it) as well as Passover (Chag Sameach!).
As a kid, my traditional way of recognizing Easter was getting my hair done, a new dress for church, attending Easter service and the church’s Easter egg hunt afterwards. Dinner wasn’t such a big part of the day. That probably doesn’t make me the most qualified person to suggest recipes for a holiday dinner; however, I believe in any excuse to cook something tasty. As for Passover, I’m still working on getting a Seder invite. A friend wanted me to come to hers this year, but I’ll be out of town for most of Passover.
Here are a few recipes that might work for your special dinner this weekend:
Grilled Leg of Lamb with Rosemary & Garlic
via Food & Wine
Gail Simmons’ Horseradish Brisket
via Food & Wine
Classic Baked Ham with Maple- Mustard Glaze
via My Recipes
via Diva Indoors
Mint Meyer Lemon Risotto with White Asparagus
via My Life Runs on Food (big shout out to Sanura Weathers!)
via Skinny Taste
Okay. This one is obviously not for Seder, but it might be nice for lunch another part of the week. When you can’t eat anything leavened, I suspect lots of creativity is involved.
Coconut Nest Cookies
The colors are Easter-y, but the macaron-like cookies are great for Passover.
Cheesecake Filled Chocolate Easter Eggs
Do you have any dishes that are a tradition in your home for these holidays?
Have a wonderful weekend!

Well, there was Tuesday Travel Pinspiration, but how about some Friday Foodie Pinspiration? On Fridays, I’ll have some lovely food to look at. Hopefully, it will inspire you to cook something new, bake something different and try a new cuisine.
I may have mentioned in my 101 things in 1,001 days that I want to bake more. I have no idea who will be eating all of these baked goods, but that’s besides the point. I think it would be nice to be the complete home cook and be able to bake. These S’Mores Cookies Bars look deceptively simple and might a great first attempt at homemade bars.

If anyone makes them, please let me know how they turn out!
