Easter Menu

So Easter has come and gone, but the memory still remains in my mind...and maybe a bit on my hips. It was a whirlwind effort in the kitchen between Mama Dee, Grown Up Lady Me, and I, as we chopped, seasoned, sauteed, and deglazed (something new I learned). I am proud to say, it was a succulent success.

Here's what we had!

Baked brie in a brown sugar pecan glaze served with pears
Cabot Cheese, Crackers, and Kalamata Olive board
Shrimp Cocktail

Mandarin Orange, Grapefruit, and Red Onion, served over Romaine in a citrus dressing
Beef Tenderloin with a sour cream, peppercorn, horseradish sauce
Pretzel Crusted Cod with an Apricot-Dijon Sauce, see recipe here
Steamed Asparagus
Rosemary Roasted Red Potatoes

Rye and Ciabatta Dinner Rolls

Blackberry Vanilla Cupcakes (at last!), see recipe here
And of course, a chocolate-filled Easter basket!

Now you can have a better look at what we cooked! Thanks Mom :)


  1. Oh my gosh, delicious!
    I may just have to try out that blackberry vanilla cupcakes recipe, thanks for posting :)

    And I'm loving the Broken Bells album too, so great!


  2. Wow everything looks so good! I've never tried baked brie with pecans and pears, but I'm dying to try it now.
