Happy almost Easter everyone! I am hosting Easter this year for our crowd of about 30 or so, and I have included what I am planning to serve as well as some yummy things I have seen around the blogosphere so enjoy! All photos have been taken from the blogs mentioned in this round up.
For appetizers, I have planned a fruit tray, some fresh veggies and hummus and this Heirloom Tomato Tart from S&C (Sweet and Crumby). It never, ever goes anywhere without rave reviews and is ridiculously easy if you choose to buy your pie crust.
Of course, there will be a Honey Baked Ham because at our house that IS a tradition. We have family bringing some delicious salads, but one that I can’t get my mind off of is this Warm Asparagus Potato Salad with Lemon Tarragon Vinaigrette I got off Bits and Breadcrumbs. Thanks Betsy! This will definitely be making it to our buffet table!
I would love to serve this Egg Casserole from Misadventures in Cooking. It’s even Gluten-free, and if I leave out the sausage and add an extra veggie or two, it can be a hearty vegetarian offering as well.
Oh my, Angie’s Cantaloupe Ribbons Salad with Chorizo is breathtaking, and I will be amazed if I can pull this one off. But wouldn’t my guests be impressed?
After lots of salads and casserole eating, we will be ready for some decadent sweet treats. What a fun and festive cookie tray these Funfetti (Momofuku) Cookies would make from Just a Smidgen!
And how about these gorgeous puckeringly tart and spring-y Lemon Bars from Sweet Caroline’s Cooking? These would brighten up any dessert tray.
And what’s Easter without some Carrot Cake? I think these Carrot Cupcakes from Offally Tasty are just the right size for a dessert buffet, don’t you?
And finally, last but definitely NOT least, I will need to sit down, put my feet up and have some coffee and these Strawberry and White Chocolate Chip Biscotti from Linda’s Savoring Every Bite. Guests can nibble on these addicting cookies while I unwind.
Well, I hope you have enjoyed this round up of delicious Easter inspired desserts! And for my readers who will be celebrating Passover, go to The Shiksa’s Passover Potluck for some amazing looking Kosher fare.
