Growing up, an Easter feast was a seasonal given. Some large cut of meat, plenty of Champagne (we're Episcopalian after all, so when I say plenty, I do mean plenty) and all the trappings of a celebration meal. Somehow, though, despite the Easter Bunny's best efforts, I just never felt very excited about it. Without much of a sweet tooth, the Easter basket wasn't such an exciting thing for me, and though I loved wearing a really poofyprincess dress with all the trimmings to church, that pretty much felt like the highlight of the day.

This year, I want to revive Easter dinner, to start my own Easter tradition! This is my dream menu -- springy and delicous, and with plenty of green on the table, I think it sounds just about perfect.
I love Champagne and cheese and potato chips. In fact, that would be the most dreamtastic dinner. I have two cats and I am a proud Portlander-by-birth currently residing on Manhattan's rich and wonderful Lower East Side in a closet that has no closets. In May I finished up a masters degree in Food Studies at NYU and now I am trying to figure out exactly why I did that and what that all means. It is very fun and scary but mostly fun. I like to cook and I love to bake.
