Brunch Ideas
How about Easter brunch? That’ll leave you free for more family time and (hopefully) a little time to relax at the end of the day. A spread of breakfast fare, lunch dishes and some veggie-heavy sides will please everyone.

Dinner
If a more traditional Easter supper is more your speed, make any combo of these mains and sides.

Lemony Hearts of Palm Salad
Fennel Potatoes
