Braided Holiday Brunch Loaf

Here’s a holiday loaf that’s more than just bread. This unique “twist” on breakfast has all the necessities of a hearty meal—eggs, ham, and potato-folded into a delicious crust that can be prepared in four simple steps. It’s certain to fill up your guests, but that doesn’t mean they won’t come back for more!

Easy Appetizer Deviled Eggs

An appetizer classic, and the perfect way to fuel up for an Easter Egg Hunt.  In its simplest form, or dressed up in any number of flavor combinations, the deviled egg is so popular in America that special platters and carriers are sold to accommodate their unique shape.

Lemony Asparagus-Dill Soup

This soup provides a great compromise between winter and spring. Featuring vibrant spring produce and the comforting warmth of soup, this is the perfect recipe for the Easter season.

Fan Tan Dinner Rolls

These buttery, light, tender “fan tan” dinner rolls are pull-apart perfection and originated right here in New England. Easy to make and perfect alongside baked ham or a bowl of soup, these rolls will be the hit of your Easter table.

Nanna’s Baked Ham

A family favorite — Easter ham just the way you remember with brown sugar, cloves, and pineapple rings. The perfect centerpiece for Easter, and great for sandwiches all week long.

Maids of Honor Tarts

According to British cooking maven Delia Smith, the dainty Maids of Honor tarts are rumored to have originated at Richmond Palace in the 16th century. The tart fillings have changed over the years—ours are made with jam and a simple almond paste topping—but the appeal of these bite-size treats hasn’t changed at all.

Easter Basket Cupcakes

A cupcake that looks like an Easter basket thanks to tinted coconut, fruity licorice whips, and egg-shaped candy? We think both kids and adults alike will go hopping mad for these tasty, pretty treats.
