Food has a special ability to bring people together and it can, like few other things, comfort and calm us in times of uncertainty—so it’s only natural that we turn to it now. As we adjust and move forward day by day, we wanted to put the call out to you, our global community, to share the recipes that have kept you going (even with a dwindling pantry). Upload them or share what you're cooking with us on Instagram using the hashtag #stayhomekeepcooking in your chef's note or post.

Easter is just around the corner—a holiday that is usually accompanied by family, friends, and perhaps an egg hunt. Though this year, those celebrating Easter, will be organizing things a little differently—it doesn't mean the whole event has to fall through. Whether the Easter Bunny comes by mail or grandma dials in for Easter brunch via video—simple ideas sometimes have a big impact. There are ample ways to have a creative holiday within your own four walls.
How to bring the Easter celebration home
Make your own little Easter baskets for family and friends, which you can either send by post or leave on their doorsteps without contact. Personally, I'd vote for including homemade Easter cookies, prepared with a simple shortcrust pastry, decorated with colorful frosting and fun sprinkles—let your creativity run wild.
Along with the Easter holiday, spring has decided to arrive as well, with warmer, longer days and the first blooms. Bringing the colors of the new season indoors and brighten up your day by making natural-dyed Easter eggs. It's a fun activity to spend an afternoon on, makes good use of kitchen scraps, and the eggs are the ideal way decorate your Easter table!
