Radishes are the perfect springtime appetizer; filled with shocking color and an addictive crunch. But have you ever seen dipped radishes? Resembling white chocolate dipped strawberries, these buttery creations are flying off the menu at chef Daniel Humm's New York City restaurants. Why not try a batch at home?
Everyone's mother has a signature potato salad recipe, at least in the South it seems. I've got about four versions I rotate between, my favorites including an Ina Garten recipe that uses whole grain mustard and my future mother-in-law's featuring Greek yogurt and plenty of chives.
I think I've found my new go-to appetizer for the next couple of months. And based on the reaction it provoked on its debut last weekend, I don't fear that it'll get played out. This combination of ingredients is seriously tasty, and it seriously screams spring.
Fiddleheads are one of our favorite spring vegetables as much for their quirky, tightly-coiled appearance as their fresh flavor and snappy texture. How can you not love something that looks like it came straight from a Tim Burton movie? These are a blink-and-miss-it spring treat, so grab yourself a bundle, invite some friends to dinner, and proceed directly to the kitchen.
What better way to celebrate the green shoots and pink blooms of spring than with an outdoor meal of the season's most iconic produce? We're thinking bright green asparagus, thin slices of pink radish, tender peas and tart rhubarb — get ready to grab a blanket and head outside!
Dyed Easter eggs have wandered in many directions in their history, from dying them red in remembrance of Christ's blood, to what a lot of kids will tell you now: they color eggs to make them look like jelly beans.
This time of year there are some pretty amazing craft-tastic ideas online and in magazines making it entirely possible to devote days to creating museum-quality ova. I prefer the less design-y and more rustic approach. After all, they're eggs you might be stashing somewhere in the lawn. And with a small child in the house, this is not a project likely to involve X-Acto knives and tiny electrical tape stencils.
Easter is a reminder of fertility and abundance, so I say turn on the color and let loose.
Food doesn't need to be cute to be good, but every now and then we get really taken with something extra cute. I've been seeing a lot of carrot-themed treats and snacks around the web lately (hello, spring!). Here are six favorites — cuteness ahead!
If you haven't had quiche lately, it is time to remedy that situation. I could eat quiche for breakfast, lunch, and dinner without ever growing tired, but quiche is an especially good dish for a big Easter brunch or other spring-time gathering. You make it the day ahead, slice it just before serving, and then pass out the plates. This fool-proof recipe has yet to disappoint.
