Here are a few interesting statistics about Easter.
What do families plan to do on Easter Sunday?
Easter Brunch Menu
There are elements of this meal that can be prepared ahead so Easter morning is more relaxed. If you visit here very often, you know I love to freeze the baked goods I make so they stay fresh and have their just-baked flavor when thawed. The snowflake dinner rolls and chunk chocolate banana bread work perfectly here.
Since we have lots of little ones in our family, I cut the Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread into smaller slices. It drives me nuts when clearing the kids plates to see large amounts of food being wasted!
The Banana bread is on the top of the tray, the Irish Soda Bread in the middle and the mini-sized snowflake rolls on the bottom. When shaping the rolls, I made small ones because the kids feel gypped if they get a roll that was cut in half.
To reheat, cover quiche with aluminum foil and bake in an oven heated to 325 degrees for about 15 minutes. Click HERE for both the snowflake rolls and the quiche recipes shown in the photos above.
A little whimsy added to the buffet brought smiles to everyone’s face though there was little hesitancy to pluck off and eat the bunny’s blueberry eyes. Oh, those boys! It was cute while it lasted and easy to assemble. I followed a photo found on pinterest
I love how pineapple compliments ham and this sweet sauce/glaze is delicious. Five minutes to make and it is done. Click HERE for the recipe.
The Roasted/Baked asparagus is another quick side. Just 12 minutes in the oven.

This pretty white layer cake sprinkled with coconut and topped with a little wooden cross and a bible verse reminding us to Behold the Lamb of God. It is our traditional Easter Sunday dessert.

The white layer cake is from a mix and frosted using this recipe:
In stand mixer, cream softened butter. Add confectioner’s sugar, vanilla, salt and milk; and mix on low until combined. Beat on high speed until light and fluffy adding small amount of milk (if desired) until desired consistency.
