Easter Sunday is the perfect day for brunch!  From a bright spring salad and beautiful fresh citrus, to unique and colorful eggs and scrumptious French toast bread pudding — there’s something here for everyone!  15 Over-The-Top-Delicious Easter Brunch Menu IdeasI think my dad has turned not one, but two corners.  The first is that he’s no longer taking any steps backwards — they’re all forwards!  (Tiny, but forwards, and I’ll take it!) And the second is that he now has confidence he will recover. And he will! (More about my dad’s situation is here and here.)

Between hospital visits to see my dad, checking in on my mom, and my own busy life with my boys, I’m a bit behind here on Cooking On The Weekends.  Weekends or not, my time has been limited.

So in an effort not to keep you from becoming famished, here are 15 of my favorite, over-the-top brunch recipes that would be delightful for Easter — or of course, and other day!  Hopefully this will give you some time to plan as Easter is on April 16th this year.

Not only will these recipes absolutely wow your guests’ taste buds, but they’re all pretty stunning to look at, to boot.  In my humble opinion, of course. 😉

Celebrating Passover?  My favorite Passover recipe is Matzo Brei a la Florentine.

    I made the Bacon-Cheddar waffles and they were a hit for the brunch I had for 5 girlfriends. I used them as the foundation for a stack consisting of fresh guacamole, sliced tomatoes salted and spritzed with lime juice, poached egg, and a dollop of salsa. Served with a side of mixed berries topped with a creamy yogurt, honey, and lemon curd sauce…lets just say everyone walked away satisfied. Thanks, Valentina, this is a keeper!
