Easter Menu Inspirations

Need some inspiration for that last minute side dish or a beverage that can act as both a cocktail or exciting mocktail?

Then you come to the right place.

This simple but delicious Roasted Parsnips & Carrots w/ Horseradish Cream pairs beautifully with meat, seafood or an all vegetarian menu. One of the best things about this recipe is that the ingredients are affordable and easy to find. The other is that's it quick to make and adds a beautiful pop of color to your holiday table.

For a refreshing Easter drink, give my Juneteenth Jubilee Hibiscus Lemonade a try. It is my all time favorite beverage . You can adulterate it with with a splash of tequila, ( my favorite), or a splash of yours. This vibrant drink is also delicious over ice, with a squeeze of lemon or lime.

You can pick up Juneteenth Jubilee Hibiscus Lemonade Punch in the 'Shop My Products' tab of this website or at The Cook's Warehouse in Ansley mall, Atlanta.

Have a Happy Easter & Enjoy!

Cooking Tips:


Plan your menu around your grocer's weekly sales ad. Your ingredients will be in stock, in season, and on sale!


Shop, Cook & Eat Seasonally. In-season produce is fresh, inexpensive, and tasty!


Cook Once & Eat Twice. Cook a double batch of dishes like soups, beans and chili-for those days you don't feel like cooking!
