Easter Dinner Recipes
Easter Dinner recipes are all centered around the ham – it’s the prized centerpiece that’s worthy of this special occasion – or should be! I’ve include three phenomenal baked ham recipes that you CANNOT go wrong with!

WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO EASTER DINNER?
If you’re not in charge of the Easter ham, then it’s likely you’re going to want to bring an appetizer or side – and to me, the intoxicating plethora of sides is just as important as the Easter ham. Here are some of my favorite Easter recipes for side dishes:
One of my favorite parts of spring are the salads! I was originally going to clump the salads with the side Easter recipes, but decided they needed their very own section. Unlike Easter sides that are warm and comforting, Easter Salads are cool and refreshing – everyone balances out their Easter feast with a fresh fruit salad or green salad.
I’ve also included a few phenomenal pasta salads as well that might sound intriguing (Strawberry Pasta Salad I’m looking at you) – and they are! You can never have too many Easter recipes when its’ SALAD!
Easter appetizers are the “fun” Easter recipes – they get the party started! How many times have you filled up just on appetizers because they are plain lick-your-fingers delicious! I have tons of appetizer recipes, you can see them all HERE, so here is just a sampling:
Easter Cake Recipes
Just like Thanksgiving is known for pie, Easter is known for cake! I love making cake recipes because they are SO easy! Simply mix the batter, pour, bake and frost – without having to frost a bunch of cupcakes! I also love making cakes because they often taste even better the next day for stress free dessert! I have included every flavor of Easter Cake you can dream up from carrot cake to lemon cake to strawberry cake and more!
