Easter Sunday, the day Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, is right around the corner. Along with the holy hoopla is the grub. And though Captain Miracle's mug may not make an appearance at this year's traditional Easter dinner in a slice of ham, deviled egg, or Peep, he has shown up in foodstuffs of former days.
