It’s finally time for Easter and it constitutes a much needed break. For those of us who have been working hard these past few months, it’s a great opportunity to sit down, take a breath and relax. What better way to relax than to indulge in some Easter feasting!

Easter has become synonymous with family and, for many, religion. What better way to bring the family together than a warm homecooked meal. Mycookbook has a few great ideas just for that.

Start off with this Whole Wheat Orzo with Cucumber, Feta and Olives recipe for a cool summertime salad or this recipe for Peppadew Cheese Puffs for something more substantial.

For a mains why not try a warm and filling roast. If lamb is to your taste then this Roast Leg of Lamb with Mustard Crust recipe is just for you. If you prefer chicken then this Roasted Lemon, Thyme, Rosemary Chicken recipe might suit you better. For those who prefer pork roasts, this recipe for Roast Belly Pork Roll is wonderful. And for those who favour beef, this Roast Brisket recipe is definitely for you.

Happy cooking and happy Easter
