Spring and Easter are just around the corner (Can you believe we’re already into March?), and it’s time to start dreaming in pastels, sweets, brunch, and sunshine. (Even though it’s probably still pretty darn cold where you are!) Plus, if you’re a planner like me, you’ll want to start planning your Easter brunch, lunch, or dinner menu soon.

I love traditional items with recipes that pass down in a family from generation to generation (think candied ham, deviled eggs, popover rolls, etc.) but I also adore trying new things and introducing friends and family to awesome treats. I’m rounding up some of my favorite recipes (21 favorite brunch recipes, to be exact!) – including appetizers, main dishes, sweets, and drinks – so you can start adding to your Easter menu too. By the way, I’m a forever fan of a big beautiful brunch, but most of these recipes could easily work for any meal.
