Easter dinner lets you mix things up, unlike at Thanksgiving, when there's the turkey and a list of must-have sides. Sure, many families love ham, but other main courses make appearances; everything from lamb to brisket can be found on American Easter tables. Side dishes are just as varied--some theme their dinners around the notion of springtime flavors like asparagus and minted peas, while others are just as happy to showcase heartier dishes like cheesy, creamy potatoes au gratin or a velvety sweet-potato puree.

We're big fans of the smorgasbord, the Swedish buffet-style meal where groaning plates of herring, cheeses, salads, sausages, and vegetables present a perfect Scandinavian feast. And no smorgasbord worth its salt would be without kottbullar (Swedish meatballs). They're hearty, meaty party food (small enough so that they're easy to eat while you're mingling), and, served with a side of buttery noodles (sprinkled with parsley) or mashed potatoes, they're a great entree for nights when you don't have time to fuss.

Fancy Christmas cakes are best left to professional bakers, except for those rare times when you feel like taking on a major project -- maybe a Cherry-and-Chocolate Buche de Noel or a Six-Layer Coconut Cake with passion fruit filling that takes almost 6 hours to make!
