A rich eggy dough is twisted into pretty flowers, then filled with jam in this decadent Easter bread. Be sure to look at the pictures for how it is formed. Lemon curd is an option to replace the jam.

Simple Deviled Eggs

The eggs are delicious, and it's easy to make more for larger gatherings. I've added onion and celery for a little more flavor and texture.

Chef John's Honey-Glazed Ham

Rating: 5 stars 223
A great holiday ham glaze needs to have three things: wonderful flavor, gorgeous, shiny appearance, and a crispy, crackling crust you can hear across the room. I'm happy to report this easy-to-make glaze has all those things in abundance.

Roasted Rack of Lamb

Braided Easter Egg Bread

This decorative Easter bread has whole eggs baked into it! Do not cook the whole eggs, as they will bake at the same time that the bread does. The eggs can also be dyed for extra color.
