MEAL FOR FAMILY AND FRIENDS GIVE THANKS WITH A FABULOUS

Caroline Randall Williams remembers the Easter mornings of her youth, when loved ones searched the yard for bright plastic eggs filled with scriptures and poetry by Langston Hughes, Gwendolyn Brooks and her great-grandfather Arna Bontemps.

With their new cookbook, Soul Food Love: Healthy Recipes Inspired by One Hundred Years of Cooking in a Black Family (Clarkson Potter), the mother and daughter tell their family's journey of cooking through four generations of women with remixes of passed-down recipes.

"One year I was preparing an artisanal ham. It was so big I didn't want to leave it in the oven, so my family left without me. That's not what this is about." She's since learned the power of scheduling ahead and serving cold meats like salmon.

Here are a few more of the duo's tried-and-true habits for a soulful Easter brunch that's easy, affordable and healthful:
