Inflation is continuing to drive up food prices at the grocery store, and that means your Easter dinner might have cost you more this year. 

The Easter ham many Americans will be cooking is up 14%, and many other staples, like flour and butter, are up in price as well.

Of course, you can't forget eggs and candy for the Easter basket, but — you guessed it — they also went up in price.
