Of all the holidays, Easter may be the most beautiful. Spring has sprung, the tulips are blooming, and there’s a certain flowery optimism in the air.

I love Easter dresses, new shoes, and a chance to use the prettiest plates and napkins. All you need is a simple, tasty menu to delight your friends and family!

Baked Ham

My family is full of Ham Aficionados, and they all swear this is “the best ham ever.” I use a bone-in ham that’s spiral sliced and cover it with a sweet and spicy glaze and a layer of crunchy panko breadcrumbs. It’s marvelous!
