This Week's Cravings: Easter Dinner











We know This Week's Cravings is actually a day after Easter this week - but please share what you enjoyed Easter Sunday! I am posting this a little early in case some friends need last minute ideas for the holiday.


Lots going on the in the Q household - which will all be revealed soon - so I'm sharing a list of recipes perfect for your Easter day.


Appetizers


Deviled Egg Dip.


Yum. And such a unique twist on the classic deviled egg!


Layered Pesto Spread.



Just 'cause. It's tasty.



The meat..


Classic choice of lamb - we grill it in this post.



Lemon Sage Chicken



Come home from church or egg hunting to find this delicious, moist whole chicken waiting.


POM Ham


Another easy fix-and-wait recipe - works for crockpot or oven.

Some sides....


Mint Couscous



Fresh and light, fabulous with the grilled lamb.


Pea Salad.



I've already mentioned this is a regular at my family Easter table.



Sweets and Treats


White Chocolate Shortcake


Don't limit this sweet biscuit to strawberries, it's just as good with blueberries, raspberries, sliced peaches... yumyumyum.



Definitely browse last weeks This Week's Cravings - it's all about the sweets!




Praying everyone has a wonderful, blessed Easter weekend!
