Easter Sunday

When I was younger, I would always look forward to Easter. I loved dying eggs, wearing a hat to church, and of course, an Easter basket full of chocolate (I never really dug the jelly beans).

Now that I'm a bit older Easter is less about the chocolate and Easter bonnet. For me, it is a signal of the beginning of Spring. It's a chance to notice the buds on the trees, and the blooming tulips.

And heck, I've never been one to turn up my nose at a holiday that includes food. My parents are hosting dinner today - and I will be bringing the following (fresh out of the oven).

Warm Brussels sprout salad - Inspired by Daisy and Food and Wine. Hop on over to her blog for the details on this delight that she made for our blogger potluck....I haven't been able to get it out of my mind since!

And Shallot and Mushroom quiche....courtesy of Dorie Greenspan's Around My French Table. 1 more post-it down, another 2,356 to go!

For all of you celebrating today Roscoe, Rafe and I wish you a Happy Easter - or simply a happy Spring day!

What did you cook - or eat - this weekend??


  1. I made challah bread yesterday and it is SO delicious!

  2. I baked butter cookies, coming up on the blog later today.

  3. Happy Easter! I made ham, leg of lamb, scalloped potatoes, asparagus wrapped in bacon and a watermelon, feta and arugula salad! Everything came out really great!

  4. Aw... love that furry little face! I was saying to my mom that it was funny we were all in jeans for Easter this year... no more sundresses and white gloves. I made a potato dish and some cupcakes this year.

  5. Hope the 3 of you had a great Easter!! Both of those dishes look soooo good!! I still like to dress up :) Bonus points if I can convince my mom to buy me my "Easter dress" haha!

  6. I recently discovered I really like Brussels sprouts so I'll have to check out that recipe. And Roscoe is adorable - congrats :)

  7. Roscoe is the CUTEST ever!! you must be having a blast with him.

    Thanks for the shout out! I definitely need to make that salad again!!
