Whatchu got cookin' this Easter?

Easter is just about here. Besides the calendar, do you know how I can tell? The grocery store. The discounts on candy and Easter-related items have begun and there are hams... everywhere. It's a traditional dish to serve on Easter and my mom did it every year.

I've never made Easter dinner, but I'm sure it would involve ham if I did. A few years ago, for a family gathering, I took pre-made cinnamon roll dough and twisted it to look like bunnies. It was just like this Pillsbury recipe, but I used the "orange glaze" rolls to make it more spring-like. They were yummy!

What do you typically make or eat on Easter?

Recently Taste of Home put together a list of the Most Popular Easter Recipe from Each State. I guess these came from the most downloads or something from within their database because the dish they chose for Colorado is not a typical lunch or dinner dish.

But it could definitely be used for brunch!

They believe that the most popular recipe is a Farmer's Casserole. It's a hearty, make-ahead dish that is perfect for a large crowd that just so happens to be staying at your house through Easter weekend. And you can still get your ham fix as there is ham the casserole, along with hash browns, green onion and lots of cheese.
