A few of my favorite moments from our family Easter brunch yesterday… Adam and I hosted at our house this year, and it was so fun getting to have both sets of parents, plus some of my favorite cousins/best friends, all together in one place. I made a couple of big frittatas with roasted vegetables, prosciutto and fresh mozzarella…. 

And we poured tons of mimosas and steaming cappuccinos. I tried these new crostini with asparagus, fresh ricotta and lemon zest, and they were such a hit that I just might have to dedicate a future Tuesday Tasting to them!

Rosemary-roasted potatoes are one of my favorite meals to serve for a crowd – everyone loves them, they work for my vegan friends’ diets and it’s an easy dish to make in big quantities. I also filled a wire basket with a big stack of coffeecake muffins, still warm from the oven.

The best part of the day was definitely the company – it’s so rare that we all take time to turn off our phones and put everything else on the agenda on hold just to spend quality time together, and a day like yesterday is a much-needed reminder of how soul-nourishing it is!

How did all of you spend your holiday weekend? Try out new recipes… dye easter eggs… eat lots of candy?

      Sure! It’s one of my go-to recipes…comes together SO fast, and I love throwing in whatever veggies I happen to have on hand! Come to think of it, it’s pretty similar to this one – although I added prosciutto at the end, and subbed fresh mozzarella for the brie. 🙂

    Such wonderful snapshots! I’d love a dedicated Tuesday Tasting to the asparagus crostini.

    We spent the day with great food, lots of mimosas, the Masters, dying eggs and playing croquet with the kids. The weather was also perfect here in Georgia!

    Happy Easter!
