Easter Day and the Easter Recipes we choose to cook play an important role in our lives.
Easter is about life; it's about springtime and welcoming back the flowers and birds; it's about a warmer sun on our shoulders and a renewed faith in all the good we want and believe in for everyone. Easter is about love.
Yes, some people will think about new suits and new dresses and as a time for chocolate bunnies, marshmallow chicks, and colored eggs.
Certainly a number of children will. But for me, Easter is
about being with family and friends and enjoying a great meal with them.
I will be cooking and preparing Easter dinner at my house this year for the first time in many years!
I finally have a fully trained, very competent staff at the restaurant. They will handle everything at the business, allowing me to cook for my family, relatives and friends. I consider this a great honor, not a burden. This is one of the things I do best, and I enjoy it!
One of the most interesting things about Easter is that it is somewhat of a "melting pot" holiday, with traditions from many cultures and religions. But there is no doubt, food plays a big part of celebrations in every culture.
Not sure what to serve for Easter dinner? The recipes on this page are traditional Easter recipes, or would make good components to an Easter dinner.
But don't stop your recipe search here on this page. This is only a sampling of what you will find at Real Restaurant Recipes.com.
Ham is a traditional main course for some people at this time of year, but I have also included a salmon and halibut recipe because I sell a great deal of these items. You'll also find a very special chicken recipe you and your family will love.
I've included an appetizer with every entree suggestion and also three delicious, easy-to-make desserts from which to choose.
