My great-aunt’s gorgeous grass green Franciscan Ware has travelled over 4,000 miles, bringing with it a tradition of hosting warm and festive family meals. She was an amazing hostess, and so it seemed only proper to debut these dishes on my table for an Easter feast. Our menu this year was a little lighter than past years, though at least two of our members succumbed to food comas after.  Perhaps it was really a sugar crash after all that Easter candy . . .
