Spring took it's time showing up here this year but now that we have had a few days of warm weather I feel like it's finally here! What's more is that I finally saw some of the first of the local produce at the farmers market this weekend including asparagus and ramps and that brings with it the promise of many good things to come! With that in mind I figured that it was time to roundup some of my favourite spring recipes using fresh ingredients like asparagus, strawberries, ramps, fiddleheads, peas, fava beans, artichokes, etc. I am definitely looking forward to making some of these recipes again and trying out some new ones using the fresh spring produce! This certainly is an exciting time of year, with the sun shining and the warming weather we can head out doors where the world is once again turning green; the perfect time to head out for BBQ's, picnic's etc!
