Holidays are the perfect reason to try new recipes, make something a little out of your wheelhouse and, of course, EAT! Easter is Sunday, so that means it’s time to put on the apron and hit the kitchen! Even though this Easter looks very different, here at Branson.com, we wanted to bring you some of our staff’s favorite recipes to help cheer you up while you’re celebrating on the couch.

Along with your own traditional dishes such as baked ham or turkey and rolls, you might want to try some of these scrumptious sides and desserts. I know you’re eggcited, so let’s dive right in! (I wasn’t going to miss that opportunity)
