Spring is in full bloom with daffodils, forsythia, magnolia, and cherry blossoms all bursting forth.  With it's arrival - the first produce from the farmers' fields has appeared in our boxes.  Baby beets, baby spinach and  beautiful French breakfast radishes are among the early treasures of the season. The recipes below offer classic simple combinations to enjoy the delicate flavors of spring.

With so many recipes available on line, my cookbooks collect a little more dust these days than they used to.  But when strawberries season arrives I head straight for this gem from Heidi Swanson's Near and Far.  The combination of sweet, tart, sour and crunchy is a revelation.   Only the freshest, most flavorful, ripe strawberries will do.  Luckily our box had just that this week.  I'm a bit of a strawberry fiend and I already had some organic Driscol...

The fruits of spring continue to burst forth - figuratively and literally.  Finally, finally, the rain let up and strawberries poked their magnificent fire truck red heads up out of their green leaves.  A more demure pencil asparagus is gracing us with its presence and delicately flavored white hakurei turnips are waiting to be sauteed in butter and consume alongside a fresh, crisp glass of white wine. These items and more grown and harvested by our local f...

This week's box is full of spring delights -  we have tart, lemony sorrel, spring red radishes, and tofu from local organic soybeans, made the 'Zen-Tofu-Master' way. We are lucky to get a second week of garlic ramps, whose season is over in the blink of an eye. Asparagus and rhubarb continue to delight and the first of the season's spinach and romaine are making their debut. Check out the wonder of sorrel in our delicious soup recipe. If you are not a curre...

When I saw kale raab on the list of veg in my box last week I assumed that it must be a cross between broccoli rabe and kale.  Not so fast! As it turns out "raabs" are the tender flowering tops of bolted brassicas. There is broccoli raab, mustard raab, brussels sprout raab, and kale raab, among others.  Last summer, the kale spent all of its time developing a strong root system and leaves.  In spring, these same kale plants produce tender little yellow edib...

Here's a frittata recipe that really celebrates spring - much like our box this week!  It's a riff on Melissa Clark's Asparagus Frittata from her DINNER cookbook. I used a handful of fiddleheads, a few spears of asparagus and all of my ramps. I have to admit that I have never had the pleasure of cooking or eating a garlic ramp and WOW - sign me up for the ramp cult!  I tasted them while sauteéing and holy smokes, I could have just had buttered toa...

In a continuing effort to push winter out the back door once and for all, let's pretend for a moment that, no, we are not still wearing a down jackets and boots every day, we are eating radishes and butter, because it's spring!  

This delightful little take on the crostini is an open faced attack on winter.  I had it for lunch today, but found it my new favorite cookbook, Dinner, Changing the Game, by Melissa Clark. 

The cookbook...
