We received so many incredible recipes for our 2014 Easter & Passover roundup that we were blown away and knew we had to do this in two parts (37 entries - our most ever for a roundup!). If you missed Tuesday's Easter roundup part one you'll want to give it a look - it's full of Easter cookie and bread goodness!
One thing we were missing was a few Passover dishes but, today we've got you covered for Easter brunch, lunch and dinner - with some sweet treats for dessert and some delicious Passover options!
The best way to kick off Easter morning? With Eggs Benny of course! Often a treat when out for brunch, Leslie at True Sustenance shares her recipe for getting Eggs Benedict right at home.
Nothing says spring like pea shoots and Rasa at The Vixen Life has whipped up some easy lemony pea shoot pesto as a perfect filling for an Easter morning omelette!
If you're entertaining and don't want to do the standard Easter brunch, why not combine savories and sweets and host an Easter Tea Party like Barbara at My Island Bistro Kitchen?
Ham is a classic choice for Easter but why not serve it with a twist this year? This beautiful Hearty Ham and White Bean Soup from Mama B at My Edible Journey would be a perfect lunch option or starter for Easter dinner.
Leigh Anne at Sugar n' Stuff shared her Primavera Dip - another great option to serve at lunch or as an appetizer for guests arriving to Easter Dinner.
Making hard boiling eggs so they are easy to peel is a trick you have to master for so many different Easter dishes and Getty Stewart has the perfect tutorial for you if you struggle with this!
Once you've got Getty's trick for perfect hard boiled eggs down pat, you'll want to try these "Eggsplosions" from Karen at Kravings Blog. This fun twist on Deviled Eggs are another great addition to lunch, brunch or a starter for dinner.
For a fresh, light lunch option before a big Easter dinner this delightful looking Celery Salad with Salted Maple Pistachios from Emily at Eat What's Good would fit the bill!
For a fresh take on Easter dinner and one that's fun to try with family, look no further than Jon's Mediterranean Easter Dinner over at The Local Kitchener.
If you're scaling back and doing a smaller Easter dinner with immediate family or a handful of friends, Aimee at Simple Bites has three simple recipes for a smaller Easter dinner that come together quickly and easily but still pack a flavour punch.
Time to get to the sweet treats to finish off and we follow up three savoury recipes with three sweet no-bake treats from Cheri at Kitchen Simplicity that include lemon truffles, chocolate nests and crispy rice treats!
If rice krispies are your thing and you looove mini eggs you'll want to try these cute little rice krispy nests topped with mini eggs from Jen at Edible Life In YYC.
For a dessert that's both Easter and Passover friendly (and gluten-free!) and a pretty addition to your table, look no further than Jesse's Raw Blueberry Cheesecake over at Out To Lunch Creations.
For a fun dessert to make with kids, these cute little Peanut Butter Bunnies and Chicks from Genevieve at Vanilla and Spice would be a perfect option.
For something a little more decadent that comes in a individual serving (and is also gluten free!), check out these Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes with Marshmallow Frosting from Laureen at Fox In The Kitchen.
Meringues are an easy way to get fancy and Sarah at My Nana's Kitchen makes these Melting Chocolate Chip Meringues for Passover every year.
These fun little Reese Pops Easter Egg Treats from Kim at Gingermommy are a fun treat for the kids (or the kids at heart!)
And last, but not least, we have a terrific recipe for getting the kids in the kitchen with this Easy Chocolate Easter Bark from Julie at Sober Julie - and it looks great too!
We hope you enjoyed both Part 1 and Part 2 of our Easter/Passover roundup this year and a very big thank you to all of our members who contributed recipes and photos!
Stay tuned, we'll be announcing the details for our next recipe roundup in coming weeks!
