thursday things – an easter recipe round up

peeps 0572

Easter is almost upon us. If you’re not sure how much food you’ll need, has created a super handy Easter Brunch menu calculator! Whether you’re making brunch, lunch, dinner, or brinner (that’s a thing, right?) this calculator has your back!

If, on the other hand, you’re still not sure what you want to make, that’s a whole different sort of pickle to be in. I’m a ham girl myself, which works equally well in breakfast, lunch, and dinner applications. But I always seem to get hung up on the accouterments, don’t you? Well fear not, because I’ve got some ideas for you.   

Feeling brunchy? How about these donut muffins with cherry jam from The Sugar Hit.


These waffles, because who doesn’t love waffles? (Plus you can make them ahead of time and reheat them for your guests!)

Or some of Playing with Flour’s egg and toast cups that are just as easy to put together as they are adorable.

And I Am A Food Blog’s fancy new twist on a classic deviled egg.


Salad is always necessary, and A Periodic Table’s bitter greens salad with grape molasses is out of this world.


Crumb took everything you know about Easter’s classic hot cross buns and blew it away with a savory version stuffed with bacon and green onions. Yes please.

Or stuff your Easter ham (or lamb, or beef, whatever) into some delicious croissants.

And who needs colored eggs when you could have these bright color block cookies from Love & Olive Oil?


And turn those macaroons into candy vessels with SkinnyTaste’s macaroon nests!

Or make some super easy last-minute Easter bark!

Or hit it out of the park with this fancypants chocolate-orange macaroon cake from My Name is Yeh

  1. so, can we just hit the rewind button back to easter so i can make all this stuff? i really didn’t do easter right this year and i totally want a do-over now. as in, i’ll make all this for MYSELF and then everyone else can just go to brunch at a restaurant and leave me at home with my food DO I SOUND BITTER LOL. 🙂
