For me, holidays are all about the food. While nothing beats Thanksgiving, any excuse to make a ton of food sounds like a great celebration to me. A lot of people think that holiday foods have to be extremely labor intensive, and sometimes are not even worth the effort; those people are wrong! In this list of Easter dishes under 5 ingredients, you'll find sweet and savory options that take little time or expertise at all. Whether you celebrate Easter or not, I recommend whipping up some of these treats and sharing them with friends, family, roommates, or whoever you are around this spring season.

If you've never had pavlova, you're missing out. It's basically a giant merengue cookie that you can load up with whipped cream and fresh berries.  

5-Ingredient Vegan Cinnamon Rolls
