I know it may not feel like Spring here in Boston, however, I will not let mother nature detour me from kicking my Spring cooking into high gear! So when Wayfair.com asked me to host a Housewarming Party featuring some of my favorite Spring Recipes from the web, how could I resist?
Finding the perfect Spring recipe is tough. You want to start diving back into fresh, bright fruits and vegetables, but not too much is in season yet. Some nights are still really chilly, and some are bordering on balmy. So what do you do? Make Sweet & Sour Cabbage Rolls! They are the best of warm and comforting, and bright and vibrant!
If you are like me, seafood just doesn’t seem right in the Winter, so as soon as the season changes, its time to get your fill! This seafood salad from Made in a Day is just what the doctor ordered!
If its Spring, I am eating lamb! From ground lamb, to a french rack, to this Spring Lamb Roast from Leah’s Life, you can’t go wrong!
Spring is also the time to dive back into vegetables, even if it is a slow dive back in. This 3 (4 or 5) Bean Salad is a perfect way to slow roll back into the good stuff!
Why do the same-old-same-old with your salads, when you can make this beautiful and bright Edamame & Artichoke Salad from Organized 31 in no time at all!
Protein and vegetables aren’t the only ingredients to be spotlighted in the Spring, there are plenty of ways to incorporate bright Spring ingredients into sweet and satisfying desserts too!
Lemon is one of my favorite Spring ingredients because it is fresh and alive, just like the season! These Homemade Lemon Bars from Wayfair.com will put you in the mood for baseball and spring cleaning!
I have been known to rant about the fact that SO many people don’t realize that Florida strawberry season is in late Winter, early Spring. Why don’t people know this?! You don’t have to wait for the Summer to enjoy the best fruit known to man! And enjoying them in this Strawberry Creme Pie from My Sweet Sanity does not seem like a bad idea either!
With all these incredible flavors, how about some Spring libations to clear the palate?
What is better than a delicious, refreshing beverage that is also good for you? This Green Lemonade from Creative Green Living fits that bill! Add some mint, and you may think you are drinking Spring in a glass!
Not only does this non-alcoholic spritzer from Really, Are You Serious? visually impress, the flavors could not be any more Spring!
