Easter is quickly approaching and many families will be gathering for their family traditions. For us this usually means an egg hunt and a huge dinner with all the yummy foods of Spring! I have a ham and a turkey to cook up for the family as well as all the fixings a growing family would want. My teens have a never ending appetite! Of course we will have chocolate and other sweets to enjoy for dessert. But this year I am thinking of trying a new dessert. This yummy Crustless Chai-Coconut Pie from Egg Farmers of Ontario is perfect for Easter.
Eggs are nature’s multivitamin and when you choose to include fresh Ontario eggs in your Easter meals and treats, you are supporting local egg farm families while creating special Easter memories with your own family.
