What are some great side dishes to serve for Easter dinner?

Easter dinner is a special occasion and should be celebrated with the perfect side dishes.

Consider adding a light, spring-inspired salad to your menu such as a baby spinach salad with strawberries, feta cheese, and toasted almonds. This adds a refreshing crunchy texture and flavor to the meal that is sure to please everyone at the table.

Roasted asparagus is another delicious option for Easter dinner; it can be simply prepared by drizzling asparagus spears with olive oil and herbs before baking in the oven.

To make the side dish more hearty and filling, add roasted potatoes or sweet potatoes seasoned with rosemary and garlic!

A festive dessert option could include soft Italian cookies filled with jams or lemon curd – something sweet to top off the celebration!

What is the best way to store baked bread?

The best way to store baked bread is to wrap it tightly in a towel or parchment paper, place it in an airtight container, and store it in a cool spot.

To keep the bread as fresh as possible for as long as possible, try to consume it within two days.

Baked bread can become stale faster if exposed to too much heat, so find a place far from heating appliances and direct sunlight.

If any slices are left uneaten after two days, toast them until they are crispy to make them enjoyable again.

By storing the bread properly and eating up all of your creations while they’re still fresh, you can ensure that you get the most out of your baking sessions!
