Easter cooking and baking

ma'amoul

In anticipation of Easter, I’ve got a roundup of some of my favorite recipes for the holiday. Some of these are Easter family traditions (like ma’amoul, kleicha, samoon, fattoush, and dolma), and some of them are just nice and festive 🎉 And keep an eye out, because I’ll be posting a new main on Thursday, but until then, enjoy these favorites:
