It is rare that I have decent photos to show that my culinary skills extend beyond baked goods. This is because my savory feats usually happen (and are eaten) at night when the lighting is atrocious.
Our Easter banquet, however, took place on a well-lit afternoon. It was green and springy and appropriately egg-based. So even though the pictures of it come a week late (our internet has been ridiculously finicky recently), please indulge me. Bon Appetit!
The Easter spread as seen from the head of the table. A citrusy Sauvignon Blanc with green apple notes and steamed asparagus with garlic and lemon.
Since the internet was down, we pulled together this vegetable quiche using a cheese flan recipe from Food and Wine, a lemon souffle recipe from Gourmet, and our memories. The crust could have been crustier, but otherwise, it turned out marvelously.
There's little guesswork in salad composition. Nothing can go wrong when you're tossing together spinach, goat cheese, tomatoes, and balsamic vinaigrette.
I can't take any credit for the chocolate peanut butter nests. The flat woke up to find them on Easter morning. They were entirely Kasey's doing.
