Easter Menu

Easter is my FAVORITE holiday. 

A holiday filled with JOY.
For a Savior the grave could NOT contain!

But, it’s a holiday that our family doesn’t have many food-related traditions for, nor other big traditions; we just enjoy spending time together celebrating! 

No Easter baskets filled with candy here – mainly because the candy has nuts!  Although, I do have plans to try some DIY candy versions this year. 

So, we are celebrating Christ’s Resurrection with ham and potatoes, and a few new traditions: 

Breakfast {before & after Church}

Resurrection Rolls
{Before church on Sunday, we’ll start the day with these new-to-us resurrection rolls!}


Orange Cranberry Muffins
{After church, while we wait for lunch, we’ll have these yummy muffins & fresh fruit}

For our main meal {late lunch}, we’re planning to make:

Crockpot Scalloped Potatoes & Ham
{this can easily cook away while we are at church Sunday morning}

Herbed Green Beans
{We love green beans, simply steamed & spiced with basil & a little butter too!}

Spiced Country Applesauce
{This applesauce is the BEST, and it’s a great way to bring fruit into our menu without shelling out tons of $ for fruit that is not yet in season}

Deviled Eggs
{Can’t wait for these!!}


We haven’t fully decided on our dessert menu yet, but here’s what we’re debating between:

Whole Wheat Carrot Zucchini Cake
{This is ultimately my favorite dessert cake. I’m voting for this one!}

Carrot Bars
{A delicious second to the carrot zucchini cake; super moist & yummy!}

Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream
{another one of our favorites!}

Fruit Pizza
{This one is always a hit!}

Creamy Smooth Chocolate Pie
{This is a new recipe for us – but it looks so tempting….}

{These also look amazing!}


Cherry Cheesecake
{No pudding in this no-bake cheesecake – might top it with cherries or other berries}


Help us decide… which dessert!?!?!


  1. Thank you for the great dessert links! Have a blessed Easter with your family.

  2. it all sounds so yummy and looks so good

    come see me at

  3. i have made the blueberry lemon bars or something very similar and i can tell you they are GOOD. easy to make too. for me personally though they are less of a holiday dessert though i like to use holidays as an excuse to be a little fancy : ) plus give me anything chocolate or with cream cheese icing and i would pick that in a heartbeat !

  4. I vote for Strawberry Cheesecake Ice cream :)

  5. I'm planning on making your carrot zucchini cake....can't wait to try it! So I vote for that, with a side of strawberry cheesecake ice cream. Can't have too many desserts, you know. :)

  6. Fix all the desserts and either freeze or give them away!! They look too good to just choose one or two.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
