Grown-Up Easter Basket


I have no problems with jellybeans and Peeps. There’s nothing finer than a plump, yellow Peep (gotta be yellow) dipped in hot fudge and eaten while hovering over the fondue pot. However, some occasions call for a more sophisticated approach. Here are my thoughts on how to make the perfect Easter hostess gift for grown-ups. Use it as a springboard for your own ideas.

Line a pretty basket with a crisp, new tea towel. Fill the basket with:

Homemade Focaccia. Click here for my recipe for Rosemary-Sage Focaccia with Caramelized Onions. Again, just use this as a springboard. For the one in the photo I simply pressed out a wad of storebought pizza dough and topped it with olive oil, caramelized onions, black olives, fresh rosemary and sea salt.

Bottle of wine. Yes, this wine was chosen solely for the fact the there are ducks on the label. However, turns out it’s a pretty good wine. It’s a 2009 Maxwell Creek Sauvignon Blanc from a small winery in the Napa Valley. It’s fruity and crisp with a long, smooth finish that pairs nicely with the focaccia. Here’s one place to find it.

Craft store bird nest filled with malted milk robin eggs. Here’s one place to find a bird nest.

Vintage paper mache egg container filled with individually wrapped chocolate truffles or, OK, jelly beans! Here’s one source for the containers.

Brown speckled artificial eggs. Here’s one place to find the eggs.

Tie on a pretty ribbon, add a card and you’re good to go! Happy Easter!
