What Black Girl Baking's Jerrelle Guy Is Cooking This Spring

April  3, 2018

When planning a menu for springtime celebrations, you might envision crisp shaved salads, luxurious egg bakes, or yeasty, risen delights. Not so, for Jerrelle Guy, the talented baker and cook behind the Chocolate for Basil blog and recently released cookbook Black Girl Baking. Her menu skews sweet, which is A-OK in our book.

How do we know the inner workings of Jerrelle’s perfect Spring-themed feast? Well, we asked her to fill out our Automagic Spring Menu Maker and give us a peek. She’s forgoing a centerpiece and keeping things simple with Alexandra Stafford’s No-Knead Peasant Bread and a trio of flavorful sides. Check out some of her choices below, or click here to see her full menu. And if you want to plan your own springy party, go ahead and make a menu all your own.

Whip up the perfect menu for your Passover seder, Easter brunch, or—hey! Why not throw a spontaneous party just cuz you wanna? Head to our Spring Automagic Menu Maker.
