Easter Dinner Ideas You’ll Love

Growing up, our tradition was to have a turkey on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. That and a crudite platter with carrots, celery, sweet pickles, and olives (the black olives out of a can was the most coveted of the offerings) were the only steadfast menu items.

My family has come to expect ham and on the rare occasion a leg of lamb. My Spinach Souffle makes an appearance, too. Since I have no set menu, I’m inspired by all the recipes shared by my favorite bloggers today. Let me know which of our favorite Easter recipes you’d like on your holiday table.
