Easter Recipes

Easter for us is made extra special by seeing family. In England we have Good Friday and Easter Monday as Bank Holidays so an extra long weekend and the kids have 2 weeks off school.

So getting together with our extended family normally happens, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins we try and see everyone. And food makes up a big part of our celebrations. Whether it’s Easter Sunday breakfast with the kids and grandparents to people popping in it’s great to have a selection of different food to go to. Here’s a few ideas that we love as a family.
