Last week, I posted a recipe for Bratwurst Bangers with Onion Gravy (Bangers & Mash) and with it, I served this Spring Pea Puree. The puree was so delish, that I thought they would make a wonderful side for a number of things, and they’d be a fabulous side for a Spring or Easter dinner.
I’m always looking for fun summer salads. The kind that is perfect to serve at home and/or take to a cookout or party. This Avocado Tomato Bacon Pasta Salad has a little Southwestern flair and fits the bill. Best of all, the fabulousness just doesn’t stop with this Avocado Tomato Bacon Pasta Salad.
Raise your hand if Macaroni & Cheese is one of your ultimate comfort foods! I mean a real, deal Macaroni & Cheese, made with a blend of cheeses you love. And what if you can get it on the table in minutes, with no heavy pots of boiling water to heat up your kitchen, constant checking for the perfect al dente on the noodles and the steam bath you get when draining that pasta? Step up to Instant Pot Macaroni & Cheese. It’s a game-changer.
First of all, a disclaimer! This really isn’t a “Caesar” dressing in this Kale Salad With Creamy Caesar, but it IS a dressing that’s creamy and cool and punching with enough flavor to stand up to and tame any kale salad. It’s a little bold, a little brash and as the kids would say, “Gangsta.” (That’s when the kids would say, “Mom, no one says that, lol!) I don’t think there could be anything more perfect with a Kale salad than this creamy dressing.
Spring has finally started to spring here! I have a shoot from a daylily coming up. And of course, raking and clean up (with some snow still in the yard) is happening, thanks to my son. We’re hoping to get some of the leaves up before the spring rains hit – a horrible job since I couldn’t rake last fall. But with spring comes renewed life & renewed hope – and this Fresh Pea Pesto.
