We’re a little over a month into spring and I’ve pulled out all my favorite recipes that involve Spring veggies (especially asparagus and peas). One of my favorites is this Chicken and Sugar Snap Pea Stir-Fry from Williams Sonoma.

Other fav’s include:

Snow Pea-Radish Slaw (Food Network Magazine)

Lemon-Parm Sole with Arugala Salad (Rachel Ray)

Asparagus, Ham, and Goat Cheese Quiche (Wives with Knives)

One pound of asparagus almost feels like too much. Go for 1/2 – 3/4 pound.

Skillet Cod with Lemon and Capers (The Kitchn)

Jacques Pépin’s Pan-Crisped Deviled Eggs (Joy the Baker)

I can’t vouch for these last two as they’re on my “to-make list”. I have high-hopes though. I mean, Pan-Crisped Deviled Eggs?! It can’t get better than that!

My Best Online Teaching Tips (Samantha Coates | Blitz Books)



Finding a Silver Lining in COVID-19 (Joe Darago | Becoming Minimalist)



My husband is the chocaholic in our family. He loves all things chocolate/fudge. I’m pretty sure he would go crazy over this Double Chocolate Fudge-Stuffed Loaf Cake. Maybe I’ll make it for his birthday in May.
