#5 - Baked Ham with Brown Sugar Mustard Glaze

Fast & Easy! From Georgia Downard of Cooking Live, this main dish takes only 2 1/2 hours from start to finish, meaning you can spend more time with family (or maybe more time cleaning?) and still serve a delicious, holiday-worthy meal that will be the centerpiece of your table and hold a place in family memories for years to come.

Suggestion: Instead of the 2 tablespoons cider vinegar in this recipe, try our delicious Honey Vinegar instead! [Found here:  Pollen Ranch Honey Vinegar ].  And, add a tablespoon or two of our Divine Desserts Seasoning to the glaze for a sassy, cinnamon-y splash.


#4 - Ham with Apple Raisin Sauce

Create a great Easter dinner without the mess; everything's in the bag!  You'll have more time to relax and enjoy your family.  So get ready to collapse and put your feet up after all the festivities.

Suggestion: Replace the cinnamon in this recipe with 2x the amount of our Divine Desserts seasoning.

#2 - Rack of Lamb Glazed with Date Syrup and Swiss Chard

Recipe by Chef Richard Blais.

Truly unique! Tantalizing and a little exotic, this traditional Easter dish of succulent lamb rests on a bed of fresh Swiss Chard, drizzled with a unique date syrup.  If you want to surprise holiday guests with a special treat, this one will certainly do the trick!

Suggestion:  Replace the Shawarma spices (Arabic spices) mentioned in this recipe with our own Steak Lamb BBQ & Wild Game seasoning.


#1 - Crown Roast of Lamb

The crowning glory of your Easter feast, this elegant entree deserves only the BEST olive oil - our Olio Da Vita Olive Oil.
