Easter is this weekend and I am a bit late in posting some wonderful and easy recipe suggestions. I was originally going to dream up some new ideas for you to cook and create but there are so many good ones buried in my past posts. I thought I should 'archive dive' and bring you the best of the bird blog! There are a variety of dishes to ponder, breakfast, brunch, appetizers or sides and dessert. They are all pretty easy and most can be made ahead.
The egg bake must be made the day before, the scones can be made a day ahead too, just assemble on a baking sheet and refrigerate overnight, the next morning, bring to room temp, then bake as usual. The asparagus tart can also be made the day before, just refrigerate unbaked and bake just before serving. The carrots can hang out for a day (even better) and Claire's eggs can also be made the day before, just put the chutney and chives on right before serving. The 'April Fool' is easy to assemble, you will want to make the cookies ahead or another time, there will be plenty of chocolate eggs after all!
Just click on the photo for the recipe! Wishing everyone a joyous and colorful Easter Day!

Fresh, locally-sourced ingredients are the basis of my creative “from scratch” menus, which range from the classically elegant to rustic and whimsical.
