Need some sweet inspiration for Easter on Sunday? Well, I’ve got you covered! Here are 53 Sweet Easter Ideas from here at Crazy for Crust, and from some of my friends too!

Can you believe Easter is on SUNDAY? I am SO not prepared. We’re traveling until late Saturday evening, so I need to do everything before we leave. Luckily my husband suggested going out to brunch on Sunday, so I won’t need to hustle myself to the 24-hour Walmart at 9pm Saturday night to buy picked over berries and the last carton of eggs.

But if you happen to be hosting Easter on Sunday, or going to a pot luck, may I suggest some of my favorite recipes? I’ve broken them down into categories for you: Breakfast, Dessert, and Fun Food. Because Easter is the new sugar holiday, right?


Some Breakfast / Brunch your family will surely love:

Please note: I’m *supposed* to be switching servers tonight around 11pm PST. The downtime shouldn’t be too long, and by morning you’ll hopefully be able to get to me. So…if you get an error in the middle of the night…that’s why. Although shouldn’t you be sleeping then?? ;)

Have a great evening!

    • Dorothy Kern replied on March 27th, 2013 at 3:51 pm

      We don’t celebrate either. It just gives me an excuse to make it! :)
