From the Food Network

Boasting 20 of their most popular Easter recipes, Food Network starts the countdown with Four Cheese Scalloped Potatoes (mozzarella, asiago, Swiss and Parmesan), plus Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten’s Orange Baked Ham (with 95 five-star reviews!) and Spring Peas with Pancetta, a smoky-sweet combination of goodness. There are 17 more favorites not-to-be-missed including traditional hot cross buns and an Easter bunny cake everyone will love.

Delish Easter Dinner Ideas

Not to be outdone, Delish just posted 64 Easter dinner ideas and it will take you that many minutes to scroll through them all! From an Asparagus Soup starter to Artichoke Crown Roast of Lamb, Leg of Lamb, Rack of Lamb or Herbed Roast Lamb (seasoned with garlic, rosemary and thyme) Delish has a lamb dish for everyone! And if you have your hands full with food prep and need a roasting pan fast, you can order one from King Soopers’ InstaCart in Erie for delivery in under an hour!

Southern Living has more chicken, ham and lamb recipes to try – including the simple, and very Southern, Ginger Ale Can Chicken. Do you know about can chicken? After marinating the chickens (two) in steak seasoning, rosemary, garlic and pepper, you roast them vertically in the oven over opened cans of ginger ale. The secret is the ginger ale, steaming in the hot oven, that keeps the chicken moist. It gives “canned chicken” a whole new meaning!
