I have a serious sweet-tooth, I eat chocolate pretty much every night after dinner, so Easter is definitely one of my favourite holidays. This year is extra special as it’s Harvey’s first Easter!
I love getting crafty, and I’m really excited for when he’s a little bit older and we can paint on eggs and draw Easter bunnies together. Aside from the chocolate, I’m really looking forward to having four days to switch off and spend quality time with my family and enjoy delicious food, that’s what it’s really about!
This long weekend, make sure you set aside time to prioritise YOU. Relax, rest up and eat all the food and chocolate! If you want to exercise, do it because it makes you feel good, not because of what you ate the day before.
If you’re looking for some Easter food inspo, I’ve pulled together a list of our favourite Easter recipes from the KIC app that always go down a treat….
Berry French Toast Casserole
Perfect for an easter brunch, this is the minimal mess recipe that will allow you to curb that craving for tasty French toast. Feel free to incorporate chocolate alongside the berries in this recipe for that real Easter vibe!
Chai Caramel Popcorn Slice
We all know how much and I love popcorn… so I couldn’t not include this recipe on my list. Honestly, this is one of the easiest and simplest treats to make! Using only 8 simple pantry staple ingredients, you’ve got yourself a delicious crunchy and chewy snack. This recipe is also a lot of fun for little hands when it comes to pressing the popcorn into the pan – I can’t wait to bake with Harvey!
Baked Apple & Cinnamon Scrolls
The long weekend gives us the perfect opportunity to bake and I highly recommend you try these scrolls. Although there are a few steps involved, trust me, it’s worth the wait! These are perfect for an easter afternoon tea.
Peanut & Caramel Weet-Bix Slice
Weet-Bix is all the craze at the moment, so move over oats! I have always been a Weet-Bix kid, so finding out that I could use them in a caramel slice got me seriously excited. This recipe is also ideal for Easter as you can use your left over chocolate to melt and then top your slice with (just remember that easter chocolates aren’t the same as cooking chocolates, so just take your time when melting it to prevent it from burning).
My family always adores a good, hearty Sunday roast served with roasted veggies and a fresh salad on the Easter long weekend. So if you think your loved ones will enjoy the same, here are my roast and side recommendations from the KIC app:
Spicy Roast Chicken
You don’t always need hundreds of ingredients to have the perfect roast chook! In this recipe we keep it simple and sometimes keeping it simple is better. The marinade only uses 4 basic seasonings plus olive oil and salt.
Dukkah Roasted Carrots
The sweetness of the carrots pairs so perfectly with the toasty, nutty flavour of the dukkah. Plus, it’s Easter, so carrots have to make an appearance somewhere!
Crunchy Roast Potatoes
It’s not a true Sunday roast without crunchy potatoes. Need I say more?
Fennel & Orange Salad
A surprisingly delicious salad combo. I never thought to pair these ingredients together, but my oh my they work well together. This salad will bring freshnesses and a little more crunch to your table.
