Easter reflections

I tried a few new recipes for Easter dinner and some were so good, I had to share. My friend Heidi made the ham, so all I had to do were the side dishes. I made green beans almondine, honey carrots and this amazing potato salad from The Food 52 Cookbook. Here’s the recipe. The mayonnaise is spicy and creamy–a nice complement to the crisp and fluffy roasted potatoes. I already know this is going to be one of my go-to recipes from now on.

For dessert, I made a lemon custard pie. Here’s the recipe. I’d never made a custard pie before, so I was a little nervous when it came out of the oven and it looked a little … boring. Thankfully, it tasted so much better than it looked. The silky custard, with its bright, lip-puckering lemon flavor, was a light, refreshing way to end the meal. They say you should never try new recipes on guests, but this time I lucked out. How about you? What did you make for your Easter feast?
