Easter Idea Blog – Ideas for Easter Crafts, Easter Decorations, Easter Dinner and Easter Flowers




Who made these dishes for you, and how did that make you feel?
I’m not religious at all … and I don’t think the Easter Bunny is either. No chocolate eggs? Hello?
A traditional family dinner on Easter doesn’t necessarily have to be religious in significance.

When I was a young child, my family wasn’t religious but we did celebrate holidays. Not much religious connotation. My sister and I would wake up and find muddy bunny paw prints all over the place. My parents used my cats paws for that.

My grandmother made breakfast to dinner every holiday, i felt special because my grand would go out of her way to make what you want these are three of the family easter dish

My mom always made Polish sweetbread. We’d have that with colored eggs, sausage (from my dad’s meat market) and horseradish. It made me feel safe and blessed.
