Sinfully delicious, fresh and full of flavor. The best part, you can prepare it the night before and assemble it at the last minute.

Tian of Vegetables

This is a very simple and yet full of flavor, favorite French dish. This is how I present it or the vegetables that I prefer. However, you can add thinly sliced potatoes, eggplant as well. Always a great hit when served.

Garlic Potatoes:

It would not be Easter at our house if we did not have potatoes. Each year is a toss up as to which one will be prepared. This year: Garlic Potatoes. Soft inside with crisp edges and lots of butter.

Green Beans Gremolata

This dish, you can eat it either hot off the skillet, or cold. I personally prefer it cold.
The squeeze of lemon at the last-minute gives it a nice final touch and enhances all the flavors. Easy to make and healthy.

Roasted Rosemary Potatoes

This is our favorite and long standing Easter staple. One bite into the crisp outside and the soft inside and you will never make any other potatoes.

Desserts:

Strawberry Apple Pie

Perfect at any occasion and celebration, I found that a fruit pie, in this instance Strawberry and Apple Pie, satisfies every palate. Not too sweet or heavy and after a big meal a light dessert is always welcome.

Deep Chocolate Pound Cake

This is a delicious variation from my regular pound cake, and the best part… half the butter. The honey adds all the sweetness needed, the extra chocolate chips are to satisfy my craving, the cranberries…. just for fun.

Strawberry Chantilly

Deliciously sinful layers of chantilly and strawberries. All the flavors are enhancing each other well, and each bite is just full of flavor.

Here are a few of my suggestions. Have fun in the kitchen and I am only an email away if you need help putting your menu together.

You got this!
