What’s that hopping around the corner? That’s right, Easter’s about here!! I’m sharing 8 of my favorites to brighten your springtime table.
What are you making this weekend? The Key Lime Lexi recipe box has loads of great recipes for inspiration- from a brunchy tomato and ricotta tart, to a gorgeous lemon zucchini bundt, and of course the obligatory deviled eggs. I’ve rounded up a few of my most popular dishes, plus some oldie-but-goodies that you might have missed.
Wishing you a happy and delectable Easter weekend!
I don’t know about you, but my Easter table isn’t complete unless carrots are present in some shape or form. My carrot crostini are a break from the norm, with an addictive hit of flavor from smoked paprika and sherry vinegar. A beautiful way to start out your meal. [Recipe and tips]
Adding basil pesto to your deviled egg filling is a super simple way to bring freshness and flavor to plain old eggs. Topping them with a mint leaf cuts through the richness and makes a pretty, effortless garnish. [Recipe and tips]
This is one of my early recipes that stands the test of time. Easy to make with store bought puff pastry, yet with a depth of flavor from oven roasted tomatoes and fresh sage. Add to that a creamy ricotta layer and voila! Oohs and aahs all around. [Recipe and tips]
If you aren’t familiar with stratas, now is the time to cozy up. Think of a savory version of a bread pudding, easy to put together and perfect for brunch. Loaded with asparagus, herbs and fresh goat cheese, this has got that great spring vibe going for it. [Recipe and tips]
A classic from the family archives, “Mom’s Spoon Bread” was my grandmother’s recipe for a rich and creamy baked corn pudding. It’s an excellent accompaniment to your Sunday ham or turkey. [Recipe and tips]
Potatoes… that other vedge must-have on Easter weekend. With an easy, egg-free caesar dressing, these roasted spuds burst with cheesy goodness. [Recipe and tips]
You’ve got to try this dessert. I know zucchini cake might not sound like a party, but with a bright lemon glaze, it will not disappoint. If you don’t have a bundt pan, make it in two 8 x 5” loaf pans. [Recipe and tips]
A sunny pound cake is always a good idea. Packed with citrus, it is bright and fresh and perfectly lovely on a spring day. No key limes? No problem. Just use regular limes. [Recipe and tips]
