Easter Recipe Request

So it's Spring, or so the calendar says...

This is what it's looked like the last week or so outside my quilting room:
I took this picture yesterday while I took a quick break from quilting. Yes, this is Northeast Ohio at the end of March with Easter in a few days. Needless to say, no super cute Easter dresses will be worn here!

So that brings me to my request for help. We've been invited to my Sister-In-Law's apartment for Easter on Sunday and I've been asked to bring a side dish for brunch (No big deal, right?)...

Here's the thing. I have no clue what anyone else is bringing and I have to drive said dish 47 miles so I don't want something that needs to be served fresh out of the oven. I know I could spend an eternity searching recipes on Pinterest, but I'm not really willing to test a recipe for Easter and hope it works.

Do you have any tried and tested recipes that you would recommend for my Easter brunch? I really wanted to try this coffee & doughnut bread pudding recipe I saw in an old issue of BHG, but I'm worried about the long drive. I also was thinking about either a cherry dessert or scones, but I'm not really sure if they're a true side dish... Any ideas or tips you can give me would be much appreciated.

Even better, if you have the recipe or a link to it, please send it over. If it's too large to leave as a comment, e-mail me at rubybluequilts (at) gmail (dot) com. Thank you soooo much and I'm sure you know of something I'm not thinking of. Too much quilting on the brain (but really is that a bad thing?)

Off to quilt, I can't wait to hear your ideas!


  1. How about a fruit salad? Will travel great in a cooler and always a good side dish to anything "brunchy" ! To keep it even fresher, cut up different fruits and wait to mix them until you get there. Happy Easter!

  2. This is one of those recipes that doesn't really have instructions. Just wing it until it tastes good.

    Chicken Salad

    1 pre-cooked chicken (you can use all the chicken meat or just half). I think it tastes good with a lot of chicken.
    2 stalks celery – chopped
    1 crispy apple
    Craisins – throw some in for taste and color
    Sour cream

    Cut up chicken, celery and apple.
    Put everything in a large bowl and add mayo and sour cream to coat everything. Don’t drown it. I use about 1/2 mayo and 1/2 sour cream.

    It's good by itself, with crackers, or in pita pockets.
