We’ve observed that for some reason the Easter holiday always tends to pop up and surprise us, and that’s no exception this year.

Fun Easter fact: There’s a consensus that eggs and rabbits are popular symbols of Easter because in ancient times they represented new life. So after all there’s meaning behind the fluffy bunnies and brightly-coloured eggs.

Smart supper and laid-back lunches; for those who celebrate Easter and for those who’d simply benefit from a little inspo for long weekend kitchen creativity, try out these sweet and savoury options that should appeal to all hungry tummies sitting at the meals table…

Sweet treats as gifts (fun to make with kids too!)

|| For homemade easter eggs that are indulgent without the guilt, try  this divine recipe from the wonderful Deliciously Ella Cashew Cream Eggs and Salted Date Caramel Eggs

|| Last Easter our recipe for Healthy hot cross buns was hugely popular, so please have a read-through if you’d like to discover what all the fuss is about.

Savoury treats from our local favourites to whip up Easter Sunday

|| This one (Barbecued whole fish with lemongrass and lime leaves) will only take you 30 mins and it’s ideal for a Good Friday fish feast.
|| This one’s basically autumn in a bowl; all those toasty, roasty hues. Try this winter warmer hailing from talented Matt Wilkinson Roasted pumpkin & carrot salad with caper & raisin dressing
|| With only 7 ingredients, this Miso roasted zucchini, squash and pumpkin salad  is a hard side dish to pass by.

Enjoy a guilt-free Easter and let us know if you have any other Easter traditions we can share!

Happy long weekend. xx
