Easter–Hot Cross Buns and More

Because we have long attended churches with Easter breakfasts, our family tradition has not really included a large Easter dinner. On the day before Easter, however, the house is almost always full of the fragrance of Hot Cross Buns. This is also the time for lots of egg dishes and early spring desserts. This year, our early Minnesota spring has brought a crop of rhubarb ready to go with the strawberries on special at almost every grocery store in town.

And of course, fresh fruit is always great to brighten up any menu. Oranges, strawberries, even pineapples were all on sale this week, so add these to your table–no need for recipes–just pay a little attention to the presentation and fresh fruit will take center stage all on its own.

In another post, I will be including some ideas for using boiled eggs. For now, happy baking and a blessed Easter to you all!
