Dreaming of Spring Recipes

Many of us are still enduring frigid temperatures, and some of us are still covered in snow. This time of year, we get winter-weary. Will Spring ever come?

I needed a little warm weather encouragement this week, and I thought you might, too...so I put together this collection of my best Spring recipes. 

Put on your flip-flops and come dream of Spring with me! 

Spring is for lemon everything!

A lighter, fresher soup for Spring~

Quite possibly the best lemon loaf I have ever had.

Orange glazed salmon is citrus-fresh~

Carrot cake is a must-have in Spring!

You can do so much with

A classic recipe with fresh flavor~

There's luscious lemon filling in this

Even when it's cold outside, you can grow something fresh!

Can't wait for the honey bees ♥

Easter will be here before you know it...

OK, this one isn't a recipe, but it made me think of 
warm weather and picnics.

Just think of when you can pick basil right out of your own garden! 
It won't be long.

I hope you enjoyed our brief journey into Spring. 
Here's hoping for the real thing soon!

We go to these parties, including Susan's!
