The Insiders: Peep these tasty Easter brunches

Happy Easter, readers. Here’s hoping you’ve mowed through a couple of piles of candy, and also mowed all the fake green grass that has no doubt become the new turf in your living room. We spent our morning trying to host the first-ever bunny hunt, the obvious follow-up to an egg hunt, but it turns out bunnies are hard to find because they don’t tend to stay where you left them. They’re like your keys in that way (we also couldn’t find your keys).

Last year at this time, we presented our recipe for peanut butter chocolate bunnies, and it went over so well it has been added to exactly zero menus at local restaurants. Riding that train of success, we’d like to offer instructions for homemade Peeps this year.

Step 1: Purchase some foam rubber.

Step 2: Whisk foam rubber in bowl, adding marshmallow.

Step 3: Chill and serve.

If that doesn’t whet your appetite, we don’t blame you. But you can still get some tasty grub this Easter Sunday, with several brunches available across the city. Granite Restaurant is hosting its annual Easter brunch with a pair of seatings, one at 10 a.m. and another at noon. You can call Sue at 227-9000, ext. 602, for more information.

The Red Blazer restaurant has you covered for breakfast and dinner, which are two of our three favorite meals (dessert is the other, duh). The breakfast buffet goes from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m., and is $11.99 for adults and $7.99 for children 4-10. The dinner buffet is from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. and is $24.99 for adults and $13.99 for children 4-10.

Grub down, everyone, and enjoy your Easter Sunday (and candy coma Monday!).
