Ashley Tam Post a comment

Easter is just around the corner, and, no matter how tempting, we probably shouldn't just eat an exclusive diet of marshmallow Peeps and chocolate bunnies all day long.

From the Archives: Slow Roasted Leg of Lamb

J. Kenji López-Alt 5 comments

Crisp-crusted, with salty bits of crackling fat and a moist, pink, juicy interior, a boneless roasted leg of lamb is one of those spring treats that makes me wish winter came more than once a year just so we'd have more excuses to cook it. I'm not sure exactly when lamb became associated with Easter, but I'd like to thank the person who made it happen (it baffles me how little lamb we eat in this country compared to the Big Three meats).

CakeSpy: Cadbury Creme Egg in Hole Toast

Sweets cakespy 12 comments

Easter is coming up, which means it's time for another round of "what classic dishes can we recreate using Cadbury Creme Eggs?" This year, we've taken on the breakfast treat, eggs in toast. More

Cadbury Creme Egg in Hole Toast

Serious Eats cakespy 5 comments

While it's inspired by the look of "egg in hole toast", a morning delicacy made by griddling a slice of bread with a hole cut to fit an egg, this treat is all sweet. It's made with thick slices of pound cake instead of bread, and Cadbury creme egg halves instead of, well, actual eggs. When heated on a griddle with plenty of butter, the fondant-filled eggs get nice and melty in the middle, making for an extra sweet surprise in the middle of your cake slice. More

Grilling: Moroccan-Spiced Rack of Lamb

Grilling Joshua Bousel Post a comment

Inspired by the deep, rich, and balanced flavors of Moroccan dishes, this delicious grilled rack of lamb is rubbed with a complex spice mixture that includes paprika, cumin, and cayenne pepper, and then crusted in a bright and fresh pesto-like blend of fresh cilantro, parsley, olive oil, garlic, and lemon juice. They're flavors that can both stand up to and enhance the strong flavor of lamb. More

Gluten-Free Tuesday: Peanut Butter Eggs

Gluten Free Tuesday Elizabeth Barbone 3 comments

Here's a question I ask each year when Easter candy hits the shelves: why are regular Reese's peanut butter cups gluten-free but the seasonal shapes, like eggs, not gluten-free? While I'm sure it has something to do with how the seasonal items are shaped, the whiny part of me just wants to say, "Whhhhhhhy?!?!" So instead whining and spending yet another Easter without one of my favorite candies, I decided to make a batch myself. It may not be quite as easy as picking up an egg or two at CVS, but the process isn't hard—it just requires the right tools and a little time. More

American Classics: Untraditional Hot Cross Buns

Sweets Alexandra Penfold 5 comments

The trouble with hot cross buns, at least in my experience, is they tend to not be very good. After finding sweet, sweet success using challah dough to make monkey bread, I realized that the water + yeast proofing technique used in challah dough, made for a fluffier, chewier bun than the scalded dairy technique I had tried before for other sweetened yeasted breads and this inspired me to play with the dough to make hot cross buns with the texture that I had been searching for.

How to Make Perfect Easter Eggs

Erin Zimmer 10 comments

Knowing how to properly hard-boil an egg is a life skill you should always keep in your back pocket, especially this time of year when you need to make perfectly un-crackled Easter eggs. If you want to go au natural with dyes (no offense Paas—we had many good years together on the kitchen countertop), all you need are a couple beets, some ground turmeric, and a head of red cabbage.

Did you think we'd let another Easter pass without revisiting our favorite marshmallowy treat? Nay. Every year we love rolling, squishing, and cutting our Peeps into maki, securing them in Fruit Roll-Up bound hand rolls, and placing them majestically atop Rice Krispies to make Peep nigiri. More
