Easter Weekend is fast approaching, which means that it is inevitable that within the next few days, your mother-in-law is going to call you up ask what you’re bringing to dinner.

 You’ll have a polite chat during which she’ll tell you she has all the big stuff under control (of course she does – she is basically The Iron Chef)… maybe you can bring an app?  You’ll look around at your half destroyed kitchen and open your milk-filled refrigerator while bouncing a baby on your hip and you’ll say, “Yep! An appetizer. No problem.”

At this point, both of you are likely expecting that you’ll show up to dinner with a baby in one hand and a store-bought veggie tray in the other – but this year, why don’t you throw a little Easter Dinner curve ball and wow everybody with your culinary prowess!

(TRANSLATION: why don’t you make one of the following three ridiculously simple recipes that look fancy and taste divine – everyone leaves impressed and you come out looking like the domestic goddess that you’re really not… but who the hell needs to know that?!)…

This is an excerpt from the article FAKE IT ‘TILL YOU MAKE IT: The Easiest Easter Appetizers Ever which originally appeared on The Rebel Mama.
