As has been well documented, I love Easter. It is my favorite holiday, for big reasons (Alleluia, he ain’t in there!) and small (deviled eggs! seersucker suits on little boys!).
This year, we spent time with the same friends who have included us in their Easter celebrations since we moved to Houston. I made two recipes from Cooking for Jeffrey: herbed fromage blanc and root vegetable gratin. Both of these recipes were really easy, easy to make ahead, and delicious.
The night after Easter Sunday, I hosted a book group. I made another recipe from Cooking for Jeffrey: an aperol spritzer. I had never heard of aperol before, but it’s a citrus aperitif, and the spritzer combines it with prosecco and sparkling water, with an orange slice for garnish. Everybody loved it, and I think this will bear repeating throughout the summer.
