Easter Recipes

Sorry I didn't live up to my blog duties this weekend and take any pictures of the recipes I made for Easter dinner. I snapped a few pics of the cake only because it was a double decker carrot cake with raisins in the middle!

On the menu:
Appetizers: Veggies with hummus & Sweet Potato rounds topped with goat cheese.
Entrees: Prime Rib Roast.Roasted brussel sprouts.Roasted carrots, parsnips, & onion melody.Antipasto salad.
Dessert: Strawberry cookies , Carrot Cake, and a couple handfuls of Easter candy every time I walked by the basket.

Sweet Potato rounds with goat cheese. (Fitnessista)
Cut the sweet potatoes into rounds, drizzle with EVOO, salt & pepper, bake at 375 fot 20 min. Take out, top with herbed goat cheese and bake for another 5 min. Serve.

Antipasto salad. (this wasn’t really a recipe, as I just threw a bunch of different stuff into a bowl)
Cook Tortellini according to package. Drain & stir in Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing. Let tortellini marinate in dressing for a good hour or so. Stir in marinated kalamata olives, roasted red peppers, marinated artichokes, and halved cherry tomatoes. Sprinkle with salt & pepper.

Carrot Cake. This was a Duncan Hines box cake.

Champagne punch.
2 bottles of champagne, 1 2liter of Ginger Ale, 1 package of frozen berries

All recipes were fantastic and gobbled up by the hungry family!
