Easter is almost upon us! I wanted to gather some of my fave “Springy” recipes that just happen to be our Best Easter Recipes, too, a little fancier for the celebration. Most can be prepared or made ahead with just a finishing touch to get them on the table.
Narrowing this list down was kind of like choosing between my favorite children, so if you don’t see something here, check my main recipe index on the bottom of the page.
Honey Glazed Cajun Spiced Ham is one of my fave Holiday hams, no matter the Holiday. It couldn’t be better during the fall/winter months & brightens up a harsh, cold Easter like we’re having this year.
I don’t know if I’ve ever talked about my love for Classic Scottish Shortbread here, before. Simple, buttery melt in your mouth Shortbread. Ok, so it’s not my Bill’s Chocolate Chip Cookie, but other than that, Classic Scottish Shortbread is everything.
If you follow me (and if you don’t, please do!) you know I posted about my Dozen Hard-Boiled Eggs in the Instant Pot the other day. So now I’m making lots & lots of egg stuff. I love my Egg Salad and my Classic Deviled Eggs but needed a changeup, so I hatched up (ahem!) the idea for these Deviled Eggs with Bacon & Smoked Paprika.
Hard Boiled Eggs in the Instant Pot are possibly the best hard-boiled eggs, ever. If done right. Right is tender, not rubbery, whites & yolks just cooked through with no hint of green. Last week, I wanted to make a dozen instant pot hard boiled eggs that would be perfect for Easter dying or deviled eggs. How hard could that be?
I can’t explain how I’ve fallen in love with these fun popcorn mixtures. They’re just kind of magical & I just keep creating them. I think this Peeps Oreo White Chocolate Pretzel Bunny Bait Popcorn is the best so far.
Let’s talk about Welsh Cheese Rarebit. On a rare occasion, when we were children, my Dad would cook for us. It was a big deal! It was a novelty, but most of all, he made it fun. Like an adventure. We’d all be right on top of him, waiting in anticipation. My favorite was Dad’s Welsh Cheese Rarebit.
I love this Strawberry Cream Oatmeal Smoothie! It’s super simple, full of healthy, natural ingredients and is ready in a shake! And you don’t need any frozen ingredients! Bonus. At least if you’re like me and forget to freeze fruit for smoothies!
Do yanno what’s a great little thing to have on hand? Just to perk up a little Mexican food. Maybe toss on some tacos or nachos? Refrigerator Pickled Jalapenos. And not only are the pickled jalapenos great, if you’re into a little heat, the brine is fantastic dribbled in or over dishes.
Hi guys! Hope you all had a great St. Patrick’s day on Saturday. I wish I would have posted these Really Bailey’s Cream Cheese Brownies before, so you all could have them for the celebration. You might want to pin them or save them or just make them anyway. With or without the hooch, they’re insanely good!
Happy St. Paddy’s Day!! I’ve actually been cooking Irish recipes all week, but the standout is these potato nachos, in the style of McMullen’s Pub, located in Las Vegas, Nevada. So there’s the name: McMullan’s Irish Nachos. These are crispy, crunchy homemade potato chips loaded with cheese, crisped corned beef or other protein of choice, and pickled jalapenos. And sour cream, if you don’t forget to add it like I did before I took pics!
The lowly potato chip. It’s available everywhere. But if you haven’t ever had a home-made potato chip, you just haven’t lived. These Best Homemade Potato Chips are warm, crispy crunchy deliciousness. They’re unbelievable delish! They’re like gobsmacking good!
