Easter is Glutenista's family holiday to host. Now on year 5, we have it down to a science. The secret? PREPARE, PREPARE, PREPARE! Most of these recipes have been used since 2007, so you can trust that they are fabulous, easy, gluten-free Easter recipes!
Standout Easter Recipe: Wasabi Deviled Eggs, naturally gluten-free
Glutenista: "I originally turned my nose up when my sister brought these, as I hate deviled eggs. One bite of these spicy treats had me hooked & we all gobbled them up! Now they are an Easter fave."
Standout Easter Recipe (since 1983) - Easter Ham on the Weber Grill!
Glutenista: "This is a glutenista family tradition, started by my dad nearly 30 years ago! Easter Hams usually come pre-cooked & only need to be warmed, so a little time on the Weber charcoal grill adds an excellent flavor and frees up the oven for the rest of your Easter meal!"
Standout Easter Recipe: Raspberry Poppyseed Salad
Glutenista: "This salad screams SPRING! It's also incredibly easy to prepare, leaving you time to concentrate on the other standout parts of your meal, like the ham"
Standout Easter Recipe: Asparagus & Butter Balsamic Sauce (gluten-free)
Glutenista: "When looking for an easy Easter side dish, naturally I went to allrecipes.com & searched by highest rated. I figured with 1100+ 4.5 star reviews, this would be a winner... and it was!"

EASTER HOSTING TIPS:
If you host an annual event, make an Excel/Word doc that you can refer back to year after year.
Make a few copies of the "day of" agenda so that when someone jumps in & says "can I help you with something" you can refer them to the list without missing a beat!
Always start with a base of white dishes, white platters & neutral vases. Then you can liven the table & decor up with linens, flowers, ribbon & accents. The best part? All of your white goodies can be used for other holidays with a simple change of linens!
If possible, set the table (complete with chairs, plates, silverware and glassware) 2-3 nights before. This will help you ID anything you are short on & may need to buy
REMEMBER: Just as you're gluten-free, guests may have other food allergies. Do a formal or informal poll ahead of time to be as accommodating as possible.
Have a beverage station and an appetizer station set-up & ready to go by the time guests arrive. This allows people to select their drink of choice & nibble on some goodies, while you're able to keep on schedule
Don't be afraid to outsource some of the meal to save valuable time- we use premade poppyseed dressing because 1. it's delicious and 2. it couldn't be easier.
Make the kids feel special too - create an easter coloring book & have it bound with a special cover at Kinkos. Have special fun settings & decor at the kids table
Don't forget to have drink markers so everyone knows their drink. Our fave? Foam flowers cut to go around glass stem
