Sue Does Easter Dinner


Easter brings in a  fresh start to a wonderful new season.  Our holidays are always spent in our beautiful mountaintop community of Buck Hill Falls.  Easter was early this year and there wasn’t a flower in sight!!  That didn’t stop us from having a massive Easter egg hunt with  47 money filled plastic eggs.  The grandchildren love “the hunt” but are a little too old for just candy.  They have even taken over the tradition of dyeing and decorating the Easter eggs.  I got a special egg labeled “Everyday Divas Celebrations”! There were 13 of us ranging in age from 10 to 91 (four generations).  WOW!! The joy of a large family is that there are always plenty of people around to celebrate.  As you know my style of cooking has developed around family and fun.  I always hope that everyone will relax, reconnect and be happy they made a trip to the mountains!

The ricotta pie is a tradition in many Italian families.  Because it is rich and filling you need very little else as a starter

Check out my pork roast — with decorative crowns courtesy of the friendly butcher.  I asked the butcher to french cut the ribs because it makes a very pretty presentation.   I was very happy with the way it turned out and so was the family.


Follow the Diva to our website to see more of the celebration and how I managed to  put it all together.
