Easter Day is one of those days of the year that brings back many memories of my childhood. We spent it among the family cooking, eating, playing and delighted with the Easter baskets that are distributed to the children of the family. You probably have similar memories – receiving Easter baskets full of candy and toys and sharing as a family. Food has always had an important place in our home. Here we share 3 appetizer recipes for Easter brunch. These recipes are easy to make and can also be recreated for the rest of the year.
Some of my memories takes me back to when we were getting ready to go to church; which was a couple of blocks from the house. We usually walked to church and stopped at the grocery store on the corner to bye some last minute orders on our way back home. My aunt and my cousins spent every Easter Sunday with us – year after year. My aunt would help my mom cook while we played games, watched TV, and searched among the sweets in our Easter baskets.
Those memories as so fond to my heart. They bring so much warmth and joy. I can’t but stop and enjoy this season with my growing family and make memories with them. Memories they will also cherish for years to come.
These appetizer recipes for Easter brunch will have your family and friends wanting more. They are the perfect combination of flavors and they work wonders. To grab this recipes and post in Spanish please visit this link.

Creating a combination of appetizer recipes has been a lifesaver for me. Especially during special dates like Easter. A day in which family and friends get together to share a delicious brunch, lunch or dinner. A day in which the children play and enjoy their baskets full of sweets and games.
Appetizer recipes are best, especially when using fresh, seasonal ingredients. Prepare some appetizers, choose the ones you enjoy the most and try some seasonal fruits. One of my favorite fresh fruit brunch recipes, especially for Easter, is this Mojito and Fruit Salad.
I recommend that you look for decorative containers and plates to serve food. Your Easter decor will stand out even more when you present your brunch items on plates with specific details for this holiday. The same advice applies to any holiday of the year.
