Happy Friday! So very happy it is the weekend! Thursday, I developed a bad case of the sniffles, so I am very happy to have the weekend to rest and get over this cold. Bring on many pots of tea and bowls of spicy soup!
This week, I was very much drawn to recipes boasting delicious, fresh ingredients that symbolize SPRING! Asparagus, watercress, edamame, peas, avocados, mint, green tomatoes, lime, and cilantro – so many gorgeous shades of green.
This week has been relatively chilly and it’s currently pouring outside. These beautiful posts of sunshine & greenery have me yearning for more spring-like weather. Or well, the less rainy spring-like weather and the more sunny spring-like weather. I hear we could have snow this weekend….NOT what I’m looking for! *hah*
Here is a great post from my friend at VIMWAC on how to supreme an orange.
And check out this awesome guest post on Fork and Beans by my friend Heather. She made Eggplant Rollatini and it looks ah-maz-ing! I love Cara’s “People You Should Know Fridays” on Fork and Beans. What a great way to find new inspiration each week. Last week my friend Caitlin from Vegan Chickpea did a guest post. Good job ladies!
Please also check out A Couple Cooks round-up of their trip to Cambodia and all of the work done whilst there. The photos alone are worth checking out. Sonja & Alex announced they will be releasing a cookbook and funds raised from its sales will be going towards their initiative in Cambodia. What a truly inspiring gesture.
Finally, if you are a zucchini fan like I am, you must check out this post from Love and Lemons – Zucchini Carpaccio. Wow! Annie’s Eats’ Banana Pudding Parfaits also look amazing. And check out this Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Ice Cream by Smells Like Home. I love oatmeal cookies and plan on trying to make a diary-free version soon!
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend! I’ll be back on Sunday with a delicious recipe for a salsa that will knock your socks off :)
