The Easter holiday put many of our Twitter #Weekendeats chat participants in the mood for spring. In addition to the baked hams, Peeps and Easter basket candy, spring fruits and vegetables seemed to dominate everyone's holiday tables. Here's a look at the highlights:

Gerry from the blog shared a recipe for a beautiful roasted tomato and goat cheese galette, shared a recipe for asparagus and asiago frittata and shared a recipe for spicy chipotle roasted butternut squash with cilantro lime quinoa.

Susan Orlins shared 12 recipes for vegetable dishes including a broccoli soup and glazed onions.

The chat got fruity with Jo Stougaard from's blackberry and goat cheese Easter crostinis, Brooks Walker of the blog's waffles with fresh strawberries and Michelle Jenkin's lemon pudding with coconut oat crumble from the blog Prachi Joshi from the blog also shared a recipe for a spice cake with fresh apples.

For a refreshing cocktail, Samantha from the blog shared a recipe for pear and grape sangria, and Beth Lee from the blog shared a photo of her chipotle pepper and pineapple margarita.
