Easter is officially here! If you haven't started planning your feast, the time is now. Keep in mind that many grocery stores close their doors on Easter Sunday (March 31 this year), so you'll want to have your shopping list buttoned up in advanced of the spring holiday.

But don't stress! We're here to help you get ready, whether you're hosting the special day or simply looking for a dish to take to someone's house. After decorating eggs and planning some traditional activities, you'll want to make the feast. We have plenty of Easter dinner ideas to help.

This year we have an absolutely delicious take on ham (the most popular Easter dish), with a bourbon-pineapple sauce that guests will want to drizzle over everything. We also have a ton of ideas if you want to switch things up, from delightful fish, to over-the-top beef, chicken, pasta and more. We've also got ideas for every other part of the meal, from appetizers, to side dishes, to desserts, and drinks!

Easter Bunny Champagne Garnish

Add some bling to your co*cktail coupes with an oh-so-cute strawberry bunny. Use it for a Champagne toast or to garnish sparkling cider.

To make: Cut very small rabbit ears from watercolor paper. Use a pink colored pencil to fill in the pink interior of the ear. Cut the top 1/4 to 1/3 off a strawberry. Thinly slice, discarding (aka eating) the outer pieces so that you are left with a piece that is flat on both sides. Use a paring knife to cut two small slits in the top of the berry, on either side of the point; insert the ears. Cut a small slit in the center of the bottom of the berry, slide onto the rim of the glass.
