Feasting on Easter favorites

In Easter, My favorites on April 1, 2012 at 22:57

Leaving rainy clouds behind, we have arrived at our cabin high up in the Norwegian mountains. Bye bye city, hello spectacular view of snow-clad mountains. Blue skies. Hares still in their white winter suit hopping across the terrasse. Good company and last, but not least: good dinners, good wine and beautiful chocolate. Pure poetry. And if any of you are worried; no, I did not cook the Easter bunny (not yet anyway).

We have always spent the Easter holiday in the mountains, and for many years I took charge of the Easter menu. I am talking 9-10 days of well planned dinners, sometimes with appetizers and desserts. Then I had a baby. Yeah. I am hoping to step up my game again soon… In the meanwhile I have gathered all the recipes in a folder, ready for reproductions at any time. I don´t have any master plans for the next few days, but we´ll see what the future brings.

I have gone through my recipes here on the blog, and here are a few of my Easter favorites. Click on the images for link to the recipes.

Eggs are a must during Easter. Hard boiled, scrambled, sunny-side up… For breakfast we boil our eggs with skin from an onion – the eggs turn beautifully yellow. Or how about poached or deviled?

A delicious pre-dinner snack; potato flat bread with gravlax, sour cream and red onion.

Pies are easy to make and taste just as good cold, which makes them a surprisingly good addition to the lunch box to devour out in fresh air.

An Easter must; roasted leg of lamb.

Another hearty favorite; Boeuf Bourguignon à la Julia Child. I love this dish!

Or how about a quick and easy pizza with red pesto, chorizo and serrano?

As for desserts; brownies and panna cotta are always a big hit!

Happy tasty Easter everyone!
