Easter

Bring all of your family and friends together this Easter with a great meal or party. You’ll find unique ideas for any kind of crowd, whether it’s a more grown-up affair or your house will be swarming with kids. If the thought of hosting an Easter celebration is making you stressed already, don’t worry, we have tips and tricks to make your party go smoothly. First, you’ll want to start with the Easter menu: Try twists on the classic ham recipe—or serve brunch items if you’re hosting a morning gathering. While you’re dreaming up what to serve, you’ll need to set the table with some pretty decorations. Pick something you can keep out all spring to stretch your time and effort. Another big Easter tradition is the egg hunt, so take a look at these egg dye ideas and follow these tips to plan a memorable one for the kids.

Italian Baked Eggs

Consider a baked egg dish like this one for a hearty brunch entree that’s ready in 25 minutes. After baking toasting some mozzarella over a crusty baguette, you’ll brown turkey sausage in a skillet, then sauté onion and garlic. That creates a deep, flavorful base for the tomato sauce (a can of crushed tomatoes with fresh oregano). Simmer the sauce a bit, then crack four eggs directly over the sauce and bake until set. That last step, throwing the whole pan in a warm oven, takes just under 10 minutes, which leaves the perfect amount of time to pour coffee or orange juice and set the table.

If you think you don’t have time to design the perfect tablescape, think again. All it takes is a spring-inspired centerpiece and you’re good to go.
