Easter Recipe Round-Up

If you follow me on Instagram, you might be expecting a new Easter recipe in the form of jello jigglers.  I was expecting to post a new Easter recipe in the form of jello jigglers.

The jello jiggler gods were apparently not pleased with me this week. Easter Recipe Round-Up | Life Healthfully Lived

I made five batches and five batches failed.  The first few didn’t taste good and just fell apart.  The last few tasted a little better but still fell apart.  I even tried to just make regular old jello in Easter molds instead of the egg ones I love so much.  Yeah, those didn’t work either.

So I have no jiggler for your Easter feast.  I know you are probably just as sad as I am about this.

Fortunately, I have a host of other fabulous recipes to grace your Easter table.  I know it might not quite feel like spring yet and maybe some of you are still dealing with snow (yikes!), but hopefully this light and fresh recipes will help you celebrate and get ready for the warm weather that will come.


Happy Easter friends!  He is Risen!

Sweet Potato Hash

This hash is a favorite with my family and it is so easy to make.  Top it with poached eggs and you have a great breakfast/brunch item!

Meyer Lemon Poppyseed Muffins with Blueberry Bottoms

Lemon is so… springy? Fresh?  Delicious?  Whatever you want to call it, it’s perfect for Easter!

Sweet Potato Egg Nests 

I love these because you can make them the night before and then just warm them up in the oven.  And seriously, they’re adorable.

Carrot Cake Breakfast Cookies 

Carrot cake in the form of a cookie for breakfast?  An Easter miracle!

Sweet Potato Toast

Apparently I had sweet potato in the brain for this post.  Again, you can make a bunch of these the night before and people can heat them up and dress them up any way they would like come breakfast time.


Carrot Jicama Slaw

A fun, and sweet, twist on slaw.  I like that it is fresh and crisp but still has a warming quality because of the spices.  Because it wouldn’t be Easter in Chicago without a chill in the air.

Vegetable Tots

These are fun and delicious and a great way to get some more veggies in your little ones.  And they are great for dipping!

Roasted Carrots with Chive Dressing

I love this chive dressing in this, but roasted carrots are some of the best things on this planet.


Spring Casserole

Of course, if something is called a Spring Casserole, you have to include it in your Easter recipe round-up.  Prep everything the night before and then all you have to do is pop it in the oven!

Zucchini & Pea Cauliflower Risotto

A grain and rice free risotto that doesn’t take five hours to make is a great Easter dish!

Spring Green Soup

If it is still a little cold where you are for Easter, this soup is warming but light enough that you won’t feel like it’s the dead of winter.

Sweet Treats- 

Lemon Pistachio Cookies

More lemon.  These lemon cookies are so light and airy that you might inhale a whole batch before you share with others.  Totally didn’t do that…

Pistachio Candy Bars 

These are like homemade Twix bars and you should make them even if it isn’t Easter.

Chocolate Caramel Candy

Want to get fancy and make your own candy for Easter baskets?  These are simple and taste enough to do all on your own!
