Easter not only launches the season where we can officially wear white, it is also the real launch of spring. If you are looking for a pastel pink, mint green or baby blue cocktail to enjoy with your Easter brunch this weekend consider one of these tasty treats. Though not as good as a chocolate bunny…what is? These are a great way to leisurely enjoy a warm spring afternoon.
Easter Bunny Cocktail

2 or 3 blueberries
Directions – Add raspberry or lemon sorbet to a chilled champagne flute and fill with MARTINI® Prosecco. Garnish with blueberries. Continue reading "What To Drink Now: Easter Cocktails"

Every time Easter rolls around, I feel myself itching to buy a bunny. A Holland Lop bunny.

Arcodoro & Pomodoro
Blue Goose Cantina
Blue Mesa Gril
Chamberlain’s Steak and Chop House
Chamberlain’s Fish Market Grill
Dallas Fish Market
Grand Lux Cafe
Highland Park Cafeteria
Hotel St. Germain
Nick & Sam’s
NYLO South Side
Rathbun’s Blue Plate Kitchen

Steel Restaurant and Lounge

Unless you, like me, are getting distracted by photos of tiny teacup piglets like this one…
That headline is meant to assuage my fear of eating at In-N-Out after Sunday service since I haven’t made my reservation yet. Have you? I have a feeling I won’t be eating a dainty Easter brunch like the rest of the non-procrastinators. Well, don’t let my sad life prevent you from changing the course of your Easter Sunday. Go out there and make your reservations!
My favorite memory of Easter is not actually mine. It’s David Sedaris’. Way back when Sedaris was in France, he enrolled in an university to study French. The instructor once asked the class, “And what does one do on Easter? Would anyone like to tell us?”
This is when Sedaris attempted to explain to a class full of international students about the Easter bunny, while his peers, clearly mind-boggled by the idea that an entire holiday could be devoted to a scary rabbit, sat waiting for his answer. “Well, sure,” Sedaris said in broken French, “he come in the night when one sleep on a bed. With a hand, he have the basket, like for a bread.”
Sorry, that has nothing to do with the following selection of restaurants where you can go for Easter brunch. Read the rest of the transcript on This American Life while you scroll through this handy list. I’ll also keep updating, so check back until April 8.

Mom may be around constantly, but Mothers’ Day comes but once a year. Treat her right by taking her out to brunch. Ladies’ choice.
So, here we are in the final days before Peter Cottontail makes his annual visit. Staying up all night, noshing on Cadbury Eggs, untangling Easter grass, and mapping out your egg-hiding locations so that none gets lost under the border grass—all of this is bound to leave you starving. Reserve a spot for brunch now so that you don’t end up eating Paz blue egg salad for lunch.

Easter brunch often incorporates great traditions with the flavors of spring. Add one of these bottles to your Easter table for pairing with everything from roasted lamb to spring greens and veggies. Some of these selections were sent for editorial considerations, all are tasty.
2009 Fume Blanc Reserve from Robert Mondavi has always been a favorite when looking for a Sauvignon Blanc that was fresh and vibrant, but not the huge citrus bomb. Blending a bit of Semillion to the Sauvignon Blanc at the end adds richness and depth to the wine in a very Bordeaux style. It is a special wine for Mondavi with less than 2000 cases made from their To Kalon vineyard blocks in Napa. Continue reading "What To Drink Now: Wine for Easter Brunch"4 Comments »

As we welcome spring with a beautiful Easter weekend, why not celebrate some of the Texas wine makers that are doing great things here and abroad. Yes, we continue to see Texas wine makers emerging onto the market with pleasing Texas based selections; but I also love the stories of our wine makers from Texas that are making stellar wine from California to Argentina. Here are a few that may go well with your Easter brunch. Some selections were sent for editorial consideration, some I just love. Thank you Easter Bunny!!!
Oak Cliff Cellars Chardonnay– I just found this little gem the other night at Dali Wine Bar. The creation of Oak Cliff, Dallas resident Jim “JR” Richardson, who started his winery in Calistoga, California, just a few years ago, mainly because he loves wine, and the celebration of bringing friends together around a great food with a glass of your favorite wine. The Chardonnay is fresh and crisp, filled with bright green apple and pear with light mineral notes. Continue reading "What I’m Drinking Now: Easter Wine, Texas Style"
Here in my world, I have a fancy new Events page. Don’t tell anybody yet. We’re still working through a few kinks. But I thought I’d share the Easter brunch information with you, since a few of you are probably considering giving yourself a break and letting someone else do the cooking, especially when there are so many Cadbury eggs to be eaten. Hop to it.1 Comment »
