    ty for the ideas; i’m not sure what my mom wants to do…typically, we have brunch, so a breakfast recipe might be good

  10. Anything with citrus and berries in it reminds me of spring. Also bright green salads and Green Monsters!
    This year I am in charge of making dessert for my family’s Easter gathering. I’m making an Angel Food cake, cutting it into 2 layers and filling it with pineapples, whipped cream, and strawberries. It’s a family favorite! 😀

    I’m hosting Easter for my family for the first time ever this year…I guess that means I’m all grown up? (Or something like that, haha.) I’m doing a lemon cream pasta with capers, green beans, baked tofu (my grandma is bringing chicken for the meat-eaters) and the apple braid bread that’s been floating around the blog world. The only thing I have left to decide on is a flavoring for the tofu that would complement the rest of the meal! I was thinking maybe lemon pepper, but do you think that would be lemon overload with the pasta?

    1. Hmmm… I don’t know :-?. Maybe they’d compliment each other? After all, you don’t want to introduce too many new flavors. So I think it sounds good! Otherwise, I’d go with something simple, like just a plain maple or soy sauce-based marinade… but truly, your idea sounds even yummier! (And so fancy!)
