Easter Baking Part 2

Last Saturday I posted on my Facebook page that I was officially done with my Easter baking. I had made 6 Meat Pies and that was going to be it. Well then I was talking to my sister and realized that my favorite Easter pie was not going to be made. The Ricotta Pie.

My sister makes amazing Rice and Wheat pies but my favorite is the Ricotta. So I announce that I would make the pie. Fine. Except I can't find my mom's recipe. She had cut it out of a newspaper years ago. I had it in a cookbook or so I thought. I decided to check a blog where I had found a nice Rice Pie recipe a couple of years back. Ta Da! A Ricotta Pie recipe with a story and a Soprano's reference! You have to visit Food Blogga. The writing is fun and there are a lot of good recipes to try. I can't wait to cut into this pie!

But wait there is more...
On Friday a co-worker, emailed me a recipe for a cookie. Slice and Bake Lemon Gems, from Taste of Home. I thought, "Oh how cute!" I knew I was going to be baking these for Easter.
 Yum! Lemony goodness! I just have to work on my decorating technique!

Than there were the Chocolate Chip Cookies. I will be seeing 2 kids who believe I make the best cookies. I can't let them down... yes that is 6 dozen chocolate chip cookies, give or take 2 or 3...

So what does all this have to do with a blog entitled "So what are you making for dinner?" Well when one does this much baking, not to mention the prepping of tomorrow's vegetable dish, this is what we had for dinner -

 PS. I did find my mom's Ricotta Pie recipe after baking was completed!

What did we have for dinner a year ago...
Ham Steaks with Rice and Green Beans
