Celebrating Easter ~ Share your pictures and recipes!

Happy Easter!   I hope you all had a wonderful Easter Sunday, and that you continue to have a blessed and joyous Easter Season!

For those of you with children, Charlotte and I have been planning to celebrate the 50 days of Easter with a weekly Good Shepherd Garden Party for our children and would love for you to join us!  The recipes and Bible readings for the first two weeks can be viewed and downloaded here and here.  Charlotte has also illustrated a set of 50 printable symbols, for anyone that wasn't able to order a Sticker Calendar or, like my children, would like to color their own set, in addition to using the daily stickers!

Beginning next Monday (and continuing each Monday throughout the Easter season) we will post a Mr. Linky, here at Catholic Cuisine, so we can all share the pictures from each week's Garden Party!   

In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to see what you served your family for Easter!  Please post your pictures (and/or favorite Easter recipes) and add a link to the bottom of this post.   

Here are a few pictures of what I served to my family:

  1. Great idea!!! Your dinner looked great Jessica!

  2. Beautiful dinner!!! The lamb cake is precious!

    Oh, and I have the same candle holders from Target!

  3. Can you post the recipe for the French toast?

  4. I didn't take pictures of everything but I did a post about the nest breads that I made for the first time.

  5. I wish I had known or I would have taken pictures of the other food, but this is what I have. Jessica your frnech toast looks delicious.

  6. What fun! Wish I had taken pics of the main course, but we were into the desserts and sides!!

  7. Love the lamb cake! Do you have a mold that makes it that shape? I love how it is upright and three-dimensional! I Mr. Linkied to the lamb cake that we had... I made it flat since I had no idea how to make it stand up!

  8. I've been enjoying clicking over to all of your posts!! Thanks for sharing!

    Aimee ~ I will try and post the recipe sometime soon.

    Erin ~ I added a link to the post (where it says Lamb Shaped) that will take you to the pan I purchased from Amazon. It is actually on sale now for $15.99, I paid $19.99. It wasn't quite as quick and easy as making the lamb out of butter, but it still turned out cute. :)

  9. I opened my blog up for public view today...a huge moment for me. But, I wanted to share a bit of our blessings with you all.

    I posted our Easter Sunday meal within one HUGE post of our Triduum Sacrum. It'll be a long one...sorry.

    God bless and thank you all for sharing your wonderful ideas. You gave me a lot to ponder for next year.

  10. We made the Resurrection Rolls for the first time this year. What a fun, creative recipe! My kids loved making them! However, my photos turned out dark and blurry =( I think it was because it was still early on Sunday morning when we made them. I do mention them in my "Easter Joy" post, but no photos ...

  11. Well, I finally got my Easter post done, but the Linky is gone. If anyone cares to click over, you can see our Easter story here - we were especially proud of our Fruitful Blessings cake:


    Thanks for sharing all your celebrations - what fun to learn from one another!
