My adventures in raw and plant based desserts and the occasional savory recipe creation!

Easter brunch and dinner have always been exciting to me, ever since I was a kid! My Mom used to have the family over and we would all have a big brunch and hunt for easter eggs. My favorite dishes were the cinnamon rolls, my Mom's cheesy potato casserole, and her raspberry apple jello ring. I have to say the ham and sausage were never at the top of my list though. Since my tastes and traditions have changed, there is never any meat on my table and it is usually a small gathering. Good food is still important to me though, and I always incorporate the fruits and vegetables of spring into my menu since they are at their best and tastiest! Since Easter is fast approaching this weekend, I thought it would be fun to do a post highlighting the dishes I thought would be fabulous to serve at an Easter meal! As far as I am concerned the dessert is the most important part, but why not have some fabulous mains and sides to serve along with it! Below, I have included both savory dishes from my blog Garlic and Sea Salt, and sweet ones from Fragrant Vanilla cake...drinks, main dishes, salads and many many desserts! The most important part of Easter is celebrating Christ rising again, but second, and also very important is spending time with the ones you love and enjoying a delicious meal! Happy Easter!
