What's Cooking This Weekend?

Weekend of April 30 - May 1, 2011

It's nearly May, and the sunshine is bright! We are just finishing our month of 3 Square Meals (and Dessert); we covered breakfast, lunch, dinner and sweets. In May we're going to focus on entertaining and dinner parties. Doesn't this lovely weather make you want to throw a party? Yes, us too. Are you throwing one this weekend, perhaps? What's the spring weather motivating you to cook? Tell us what's cooking in your kitchen this weekend, and take a look at a few good posts from the past week.

• Lost inspiration for cooking? Check out our readers' best tips for perking yourself back up.

• Love this deconstructed Key lime pie.

• A very weird use for strawberries.

• Excellent and advice from Saveur on frosting a cake. (And oh, by the way! We're nominated for a food blog award at SaveurBest Kitchen Tools and Hardware Coverage! Several of our blog friends are nominated too, though, so we're not going to tell you to vote for us. Just go take a peek!)

Yummy bite-sized desserts.
