Deep Dish Quiche with Savory Crust

I think my favorite thing about Easter Brunch is that you can pretty much bank on a really good quiche. The kind that is both fluffy and creamy, with a hint of something sinful and a crust for days.

And if you missed the brunch that this masterpiece was crafted for - with photos by...

Because the cute duo at Sinclair & Moore has left me vowing to my kids that barring my impending labor, I am 100% making these this weekend for Easter Sunday.

A Blossoming Easter Tablescape

Easter has always held a special place in my heart. It's been a time of new pastel dresses for church. The beginning of sunny weather. Sugary confections. Daffodils as far as the eye can see. And most importantly, time spent with friends and family feasting around the table. A table set with a sea of natural yellows and greens, bunny themed plates, and homemade coconut cake. Happy Easter Loves! Truly, MKR Photography:...
