Easter BrunchPosted: April 3, 2013
I have yet to host my own Easter bunch. My lack of space is mainly to blame – it can be quite difficult trying to entertain in a small studio apartment. Nevertheless, I jumped at the opportunity to spend the holiday at my parent’s house with my family and boyfriend.
I’m lucky to have parents who are great cooks. I have so many happy memories of hanging out in the kitchen, whether it’s cooking dinner on a school night or making pancakes on a lazy Sunday morning. This Easter I may have taken a break from my “two day chef” duties, but the food and drinks were so delicious that I had to share with you all.
Watermelon Mojitos. Get the Ina Garten recipe here.
Rich, creamy scalloped potatoes (so good!)
Ham drizzled with homemade glaze
It was my duty to bring dessert, so I picked up a carrot cake with nuts and cream cheese frosting from a local bakery. I still have a slice in my fridge. It’s calling my name…
Whether you’re in charge of the entire meal, or just helping prepare one of the side dishes, cooking should be an enjoyable experience. Food is meant to be shared with others. We shouldn’t save these special moments for just the holidays. Take this next weekend to cook your favorite dish, or one of the recipes featured in my blog. We may be busy, but there is always time to enjoy the little things.
(P.S. I’ll be posting my Saturday night recipe later this week. Stay tuned!)
