I can’t read Delicious Dishings in the morning.  Especially when I’m hungry.

Megan, DD’s blogger extraordinaire, never fails to bring us beautiful pictures and delectable menu ideas.  Plus I can always count on Megan to test-drive recipes… that intimidating-sounding tart recipe I read about in this month’s Bon Appetit?  Yup, she tried it….and she somehow made it sound doable.

In this post, Megan recaps her recent Easter Dinner with family and friends.

So here’s to bloggers who inspire us to cook!  Bravi!

Since I work on Sundays and couldn’t go home to celebrate Easter, my mom, my dad, one of my brothers, and one of my sisters and her boyfriend came up to visit me and Jeff a few weekends ago, and I made an Easter dinner for them. I also made a bunch of sweet treats to celebrate my mom’s and my sister’s birthdays.

I wanted to incorporate traditional Easter foods as well as spring foods into the meal. The main course had to be ham or lamb, sticking with the Easter theme. I ultimately went with lamb because my siblings wouldn’t eat either meat, and Jeff doesn’t like ham. (My mom came to the rescue by bringing grilled chicken and peppers for the kids. Can you believe I’m still calling my little sister, who just turned 18 last week, a kid?)   Read the rest of the post HERE
