These tried and true side dishes show up at the RootsLiving dinner table every Easter. If you’re looking for ideas to wow your guests this year, try these recipes. Nan’s Mashed Potatoes are rich, creamy and flavorful. And there’s no better way to make carrots than to follow French Chef Paul Bocuse’s recipe for carrots in cream.

Here is a list of Easter dinner favorite recipes:

And of course there’s plenty of ham, but ham needs no recipe. Just heat it up, and don’t forget the pineapple.

Easter Dinner Menu / Bottling Wine
Apr 2nd, 2010 by

I bottled about two cases of the home-made zinfandel this morning.

I bottled about two cases of the home-made zinfandel this morning.

I took some time this morning to bottle more of the ‘09 vintage. The grapes were a little sweeter this year and so the wine is a little stronger than last year’s award winner.

I now have plenty of home-made wine to serve at Easter dinner. This year’s feast includes the usual suspects:

Appetizers:

  • Bloody Marys (with garnishes of shrimp, pepperoni & cheese, celery)
  • Shrimp Cocktail
  • Potato Chips with French Onion Dip

First Course:

Main Course

Dessert:

Vino:

  • ‘08 Award-winning Zinfandel from the RootsLiving Wine Cellar
  • ‘09 Zinfandel, freshly bottled from the RootsLiving Wine Cellar

Sorry, but there’s no time to post recipes for all this. I’ll be cooking from now till Easter Sunday. (But I’ll be sure to post recipes next week.)
