What is the hardest part of cooking a holiday meal for you?

Coming up with a menu for a holiday meal is the hardest part for me.

I long for somebody to just tell me what they want. Even better is when they beg for their favorite recipe from my repertoire.

But when I ask my husband and extended family what they want for Easter dinner, I usually get something like, "Whatever you want to fix. Everything you make is good." We all know that isn't necessarily true--especially if you love experimenting like I do.

If you go through the same song and dance at your house, I have ideas. None of these are complex recipes, so give them a try.

What my readers are saying...

My daughter is a coconut aficionado and so I used your (Quick Coconut Cake) recipe for her 30th birthday cake. After the party the cake pan looked as if a swarm of locusts had descended upon it. Everyone raved. What a great recipe! What really makes this cake is the cool whip (going to try real whipped cream next time). Using cool whip provides an excellent and subtle balance between the richness of the cake and that of a delicate, less heavy topping. You hit a homerun with this one. I have already been requested for a repeat performance for Easter dinner. --Danny
