Things can feel difficult this holiday, with so many loved ones being physically apart. Where Easter dinners of the past were often spent with large groups of family, you may not feel like cooking an elaborate lunch or dinner this year – and that’s OK. These deliciously comforting recipes are perfect for a large, immediate family or even if you’re cooking for just yourself. It’s the perfect time for comfort foods and these are some of our favourites.
