Last Easter, I decided to try something a new twist on Easter dinner. I made an amazing recipe from Simple and Delicious: Baked Ham with Honey-Chipotle Glaze. It was relatively simple to make and gave the ham a sweet flavor with a little bit of a bite. The glaze wasn’t too spicy for my kids to eat, but with the extra sauce it made the ham something quite unique. We rounded out our meal with deviled eggs, a relish tray, rotisserie turkey breast, and mashed potatoes.
But what would a holiday feast be without a huge dessert spread? Cupcakes, strawberries with Chocolate Chai Dip, Mississippi Mud and a new favorite: Oreo Truffle Balls . I had wanted to try my hand at cake balls, but my kids picked these out and since I didn’t have time to make a cake, it was perfect! The moist rich center inside the white chocolate coating make for a special dessert that looks great and tastes like something from a bakery. Plus, it is easy to monitor how much dessert the kids (and adults!) are having.
Mississippi Mud is a family tradition for Easter, as is ham. Usually we do pineapple with it, but my husband was never a fan of ham served that way. He liked this though! This year, I plan to try Pineapple Spoon Bread as a side dish. It sound great!
The best part of a holiday celebration is passing on my family traditions and creating new traditions with great friends. Last year, everyone left happy and full. The mark of a successful dinner!
