We love everything about this ham from Elizabeth Heiskell’s new cookbook, What Can I Bring? Just as its name proclaims, this Cola Brown Sugar Glazed Ham uses a little soda for this exceptionally juicy ham recipe. There’s even a little hint of orange for a delightfully bright twist. View our full list of Easter hams and lambs here.

This dish is all about the meat, with simple ingredients like fresh thyme, garlic and a little ground mustard. My favorite part? The little addition of a little red wine! You can make the marinade for Lamb Chops in minutes. You’ll find this recipe in Valerie Bertinelli’s new cookbook, Valerie’s Home Cooking, where she recommends using the highest quality chop you can find. View more Easter hams and lambs here.
My red wine fans will love this lamb with the Fidelity Zinfandel from Nick Goldschmidt, a very well-respected wine producer in Sonoma. It’s about $20 a bottle at H-E-B.
New Spring Side Dishes & Salads
This beautiful purple cabbage salad from our friends at Dish Society in Houston reminds us of that crinkly Easter basket filling! We promise, though — all of this salad will end up in your belly, not all over your house like that filler tends to end up! Get the Spicy Texas Slaw recipe here.

We love these no-bake ‘Easter Eggs’ from our friends at Twang in San Antonio! These would be perfect to make with your kids or grandkids — they’re so colorful and festive, just like cascarones! Get the recipe here.

For an ‘Easter Egg’ that’s a little more grown-up, make these colorful Parisian Macarons from our friends at Walton’s Fancy & Staple in Austin. They look stunning on a plate and pair beautifully with the Fleurs de Prairie Côtes de Provence Rosé.
We’re in love with this brand new recipe for Blood Orange ‘EVOO’ Cake from Con’ Olio Oils & Vinegars in Austin. It’s especially luxurious served with a little Mistinguett Brut Rosé Sparkling, a stunning new wine find at H-E-B for just $16 a bottle.
