Popping in from our Spring Break Texas road trip to say hi! So far we’ve been expert tourists in San Antonio, we’ve cheered on the Spurs, we hit the rodeo, we took in some Aggie baseball, and now we’re heading north for a little zoo and museum action. Yes, we might just need a vacation from this vacation. If you’re on Spring Break this week as well, I hope that you’re having fun and/or relaxing and/or making memories with your family. And if you’re not on Spring Break…well, I bet you’re starting to think about your Easter menu, aren’t you? 😉

Lucky for you, I’ve put together a big, mouthwatering round-up of spring and Easter recipes to cover all of your bases. Think of this as your one-stop, comprehensive Easter Menu Planner! There are plenty of Five Heart Home favorites included, of course, but I’ve also linked up to lots of yummy recipes from some of my extremely talented food blogger friends. So get ready to click and pin and plan that Easter menu!
