This morning was one of the first times I have heard flocks of birds chirping. A sure sign that spring is here and this weekend’s cross-cultural celebration of both Passover and Easter solidifies the closing of a mild winter and opening the doors to spring.
As we celebrate the renewal and rebirth of a brand new season, I have scrolled through old posts and compiled what would be ideal to make and take to a family gathering this weekend. All of these recipes are not Kosher, but they do promise to be 100% delicious. And a good party is only as good as the food, and festive decorations, so let’s make this something they talk about forever.
Gather the kids together and let them dye eggs using natural ingredients most of us have in the kitchen. Check out this fun recipe for homemade non-toxic dye for Easter eggs and let everyone help make the colorful party decorations.
Yes, these holidays are all about the egg and a spring party never really gets started until someone arrives with deviled eggs. But not the traditional deviled eggs of 1972. These deviled eggs are a more contemporary spin that everyone will adore and wonder what it is that makes these taste so unique. I made them for New Year’s Eve 2012 and feel this protein-packed deviled egg is a good snack for any occasion–especially Easter.
If you have been assigned to bring a spectacular side dish, look no further than these New England Baked Beans. I made them for Easter in 2012 and rereading the blog and recipe makes me want to organize a pot luck very soon just so I can make them again. After you savor these homemade baked beans, you’ll never look at a can of baked beans the same way again. And that could be good…
When it comes to desserts for Easter and Passover, let’s just go ahead and plan for a breathtakingly colorful and sweet dessert table filled with hues of yellow, pink and green. You’ll be the sweetie of the party if you show up with either one (or both) of these desserts which are gluten-free.
However you and your loved ones celebrate the arrival of spring this weekend, make sure there’s plenty of good+ good for you bites and sips. It makes life that much more delicious.
