Celebrity entertaining expert Mark Addison, who works with Kelly Ripa and Drew Barrymore, hopped over to Access Hollywood Live on Thursday to show Kit Hoover & Billy Bush how to make an Easter Brunch fit for a star.
Mark served up Bloody Marys and creative egg bars (or quiche). Each of these recipes allow the host’s guests to personalize their drinks and eats by serving a variety of toppings alongside.
Here are some of Mark’s favorite recipes:
