Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus Bundles

Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus Bundles

We made these to go along with our spring green salad. Maybe not the best combination, but it worked. I think these are meant to be served as a side/appetizer for like an easter...

Kabob-less Lamb Kabobs with Mint Pesto

Kabob-less Lamb Kabobs with Mint Pesto

These were supposed to be kabobs, but we didn’t want to deal with soaking the skewers or our miniature grill or the hassle of cleaning the caste-iron grill pan, so we just sautéed them...

Green Garlic Soup

Linguine with Shrimp, Asparagus, and Basil

Linguine with Shrimp, Asparagus, and Basil

Ok, so here’s the thing. Sometimes we do good. We find fantastic recipes and we enjoy them. Other weeks, we don’t do so good. This might be one of those weeks. While I wouldn’t...

Fresh Spinach with Garlic-Yogurt Sauce

Fresh Spinach with Garlic-Yogurt Sauce

This was, well, interesting. I thought it had a nice flavor. The garlic yogurt really pulled it all together. Next time we’ll pre-cook the rice though – it took much longer than the 10...
