Welcome back, my friends! I hope Spring is finally doing its thing in your part of the world.
For the last 15 years or so, I’ve been enjoying Easter – treasure hunt, gin fizzes, brunch with honey-glazed ham, asparagus, homebaked bread and more (including my homemade aioli) – at friend Danica’s nearby hillside home.
Lately I’ve been an “assistant bunny,” complete with fuzzy ears, clambering around Danica’s terraced garden and hiding eggs, luxe chocolate and lovely collectibles provided by “Chief Bunny” Linda.
As a reward, we “bunnies” get dibs on the first batch of gin fizzes before the other guests – usually 50 or more – start to arrive.
I also get to prep the huge flat of beautiful organic strawberries, bought first thing in the morning at the farmers market. (Nibble strawberry, sip gin fizz, repeat…)
I always bring a big batch of aioli (*verrry* garlicky homemade mayonnaise – *Click Here* for recipe), flavored with my pink-flowered, sweet-scented (and not very “piney”) Majorca rosemary.
It goes with just about everything on the Easter buffet (except maybe all the chocolate that the Bunny left us)!
Well, my friends, I hope this Easter brunch has whetted your appetite for some glazed ham of your own – and I hope the Bunny brings some tasty treats to your door!
Until next time,
Cheers and happy tastings,
