Foodie Friday: Elegant Easter Eats

(Via Ooh La La Frou Frou)

Easter - one of my favorite holidays. Just the thought of a fluffy bunny hopping down that trail makes me smile. Easter dinner at my home, as a child, always meant jelly beans, bunny cakes, egg hunts, and asparagus with hollandaise. Good memories.  Make some of your own with these inspired recipes.
