Easter Recipes

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

Easter is less than a week away, and whether you’re planning breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner or dessert we have ideas for all (just in case you need some). Most are recipes we have included here on the blog, but we’ve also added a couple that we’ve found from other bloggers ready to make Easter a deliciously successful day. Enjoy!

Red Velvet WaffleBreakfast and Brunch

Our classic Waffle Recipe makes for an excellent breakfast and brunch item, especially since you can make it your own with toppings, flavored syrups and so much more. We also have a gluten-free recipe so all of your guests can indulge in a deliciously sweet and satisfying breakfast, and don’t forget about our cheerful and indulgent Red Velvet Waffle recipe for a little something extra.

Easter Ham

Lunch and Dinner

One of our favorite casserole dishes is the Ranch Potato Bake with Cheese. A creamy dish full of flavor, and complementary of your Easter ham and other holiday dishes. This Slow Cooker Ham from No. 2 Pencil is almost irresistible, although you can never go wrong with a classic Glazed Pineapple Ham.

We will always recommend a standard dinner roll for either lunch or dinner, although making them look like bunnies, shown here, is a cute touch for an Easter meal.

Easter Champagne Cocktail: Raspberry Lemonade Champagne

We know beverages may be a big part of your day, so besides tea and coffee, try a new lemonade, flavored orange juices, or

mix one part raspberry lemonade and three parts champagne

and toast to the holiday and your loved ones.

  4. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until moistened. The batter should be slightly lumpy.

Tuesday Recipe: National Waffle Day

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014
Waffles March 25, 2014 is National Waffle Day. What better way to celebrate than with scrumptious waffles? If you have a waffle maker, today is the day to grease it up and get ready to grill.

Waffle Day began in Sweden as Vaffeldagen, due to confusion between the Swedish “varfrudagen” meaning “Our Lady’s Day” which occurs on the same date, historically marking the beginning of spring, celebrated by eating waffles. Sounds like a rather delightful way to welcome the season, don’t you think?

Alternatively, the American Waffle Day on August 24th honors the anniversary of the patenting of the first United States waffle iron invented by Cornelius Swarthout. We think waffles are special enough to be celebrated  both days.

Simple Whole Wheat Waffles For Any Morning

(or noon or night…)


  • 1 1/2 cups 100% whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups lukewarm milk
  • 1/3 cup melted butter or vegetable oil
1 Qt. Maine Maple Syrup

Preheat your iron while you make the waffle batter. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, and butter or oil. Mix together the wet and dry ingredients, stirring just until combined. The batter will be a bit lumpy; that’s okay. Cook the waffles as directed in the instructions that came with your waffle iron.

Apple Pie Jelly Easy Gluten Free Waffles


  • 1 cup 1/2 gluten free all-purpose baking flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp Stevia (or 1 tbl. Sugar)
  • 1 tbl. oil
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Mix the flour, baking powder, soda, salt, and sugar together.In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites and vanilla until stiff peaks form that resemble whipped cream.Add the milk, egg yolks, and oil to the dry ingredients and blend together. With a rubber spatula, slowly fold in egg whites with the rest of the ingredients. The entire mix should be light and fluffy. Spray waffle iron and begin making waffles.

New Ways With Waffles – Topping Ideas

Warning: You may want to try more than one!

Pumpkin Spice: Add desired amount of pumpkin pie spice to batter then top waffles with crumbled ginger snaps and maple syrup.

Tutti Fruity: Add any combination of fresh fruit to your waffle with fresh whipped cream or yogurt. Blueberries, raspberries and strawberries, oh my!

Savory Baked Potato: Make any dinner more interesting with waffles! Load the waffles up with sour cream, scallions, bacon and hashbrowns.
