Easter Menu Ideas and Planning Tips


I looked at the calendar a few days ago and was shocked to realize Easter is just around the corner…. it’s a week earlier this year than last year. … and I haven’t even started thinking about any menu or started any planning… I’m sure I’m not the only one in that boat.

So I figured now would be an excellent time to start publishing posts to help you with the planning process…. buying guides and tips… from appetizers to ham to coffee and tea….breakfast to dessert….I will post a collection of recipes to get you started thinking and planning.

Since ham is a popular main dish for the holiday… I figured I’d start there… earlier this week I posted a Ham Buying Guide from the archives…there’s a wealth of information in the archives… so that’s where I’ll start…

Check out these recipe and tip posts for meal ideas from the archives:
