Frittatas are the perfect breakfast or brunch necessity. Also great to make ahead for meal prep. I usually make them with whatever I have on hand. In the spring, asparagus is wonderful with Swiss cheese, but you can also use mozzarella or Havarti. Some other egg dishes you may love Tomato and Zucchini Frittata, Spinach and Feta Frittata or Broccoli and Cheese Quiche.

The next time you need a quick and easy summer dinner, make this grilled portobello mushroom burger recipe! You only need 6 ingredients and 20 minutes to make it, but the payoff is huge. The grilled portobello mushrooms are juicy and meaty, and a simple balsamic marinade deepens their tangy, savory flavor. We often cook them on weeknights, when we’re craving something tasty but don’t really feel like cooking. But like regular homemade veggie burgers, they’re a great choice for summer cookouts, too. Served on a toasted bun with all the fixings, they’re hearty, satisfying, and absolutely delicious. Even meat […]

I love cooking egg rolls in the air fryer because skipping the frying means they are healthier and lighter (see all my air fryer recipes here). If you don’t have an air fryer, you can also bake them. They’re so easy to make and taste so good! Serve them with a dipping sauce, like sweet chili sauce, duck sauce, or spicy mustard if you wish. If you want to do a homemade takeout “fakeout” night, these egg rolls would be delicious with fried rice, General Tso’s chicken, or orange chicken.

On rainy spring afternoons, I hole up in the kitchen and make this asparagus soup recipe. It’s my spring substitute for the butternut squash soup I love making in the fall. When it’s too wet to be outside, I find it soothing and meditative to simmer a pot of asparagus soup on the stove and listen to the rain pattering on the roof. To me, it’s the perfect spring soup. Fresh basil makes it aromatic and refreshing, peas lend it a subtle sweetness, and blended potato makes it lightly creamy without any heavy cream. Serve it as a starter with […]
