My Gluten Free Easter

Easter is almost here, and I couldn’t be more excited! My Easter Bunny tends to stick to Premium Chocolatiers and Jelly Bellies for most of my basket! Although, there are plenty of other celiac and food allergy friendly treats out there. 🙂

But that’s not all, Easter is also a time to gather with our families and enjoy some delicious dishes. So, this week, I wanted to share the dishes that I make for Easter! The blogger in me is slightly proud because this year my Easter post is coming out BEFORE Easter, so you have time to try them out yourself!

Minty Peas and Carrots (GF, V)

Minty Peas and Carrots (GF, V)

This is a popular side dish in my house. Not only is it in season, but despite using light flavors it tastes incredibly rich! To learn more or cook this dish yourself, check out last year’s blog post for the recipe! 

Springtime Cupcakes


This recipe doesn’t call for anything specific beyond jelly beans. I use Jelly Bellies, which are gluten and dairy free. However, if you’re vegan there are plenty of other companies that you can try instead. And, then all that’s left is a bit of imagination!

Raindrops on Roses!

This treat is great because your kids can decorate as well! While I’ll leave the cupcake recipe up to your own design, I particularly like my gluten and dairy free buttercream frosting recipe. And, don’t forget to read my original blog post on these cupcakes! 

Lemon and Herb Pork Tenderloin

Now everyone needs a main dish, and I just recommend this one because I love the marinade and the idea of fresh herbs as we enter the spring season.  And, the flavor combination is simply mouthwatering.  Plus, if you’re traveling (and packing your own meal), you can eat this dish cold and it’s easy to store. Learn to make this dish by reading the recipe in my original blog post! 

As for me this Easter will be different because I’m still traveling my way around Australia! (Any chocolate from my Easter Bunny back home would be quite melted by the time it made it down under.) But, I’m thrilled to be trying out something new, and spending the holiday with some Aussies.

That’s about it from here! Of course I’m sharing these dishes with my friends at Fiesta Friday! Thank you so much to this week’s co-hosts-  Jhuls @ The Not So Creative Cook and Apsara @ Eating Well Diary. I’ll be fiesta-ing after my long weekend in Western Australia! 🙂

Happy Cooking!
