Spring risotto

springrisotto2

The past couple of weeks have been pretty busy for me, and the following few weeks will be, too. Not too busy time-wise, but event/plans wise. Work, volunteering, going to the beach, normal stuff, and now classes, which also have homework. Yes, my cooking classes have begun! I guess I’m officially a student again, but I don’t feel like a student, so I’m not identifying as it. I’m still up for any and all student discounts, though, and my community college ID has no expiration date, so I suppose that I can use it forever. Hooray for a perpetual JCrew discount.

Asparagus revuelto

You may have noticed that I’ve been making a lot of salads as of late, and you might be hoping that this trend stops, or is at least slowed a little, and I’m right there with you. I need to share some more exciting things rather than “vegetables this way.” It just so happens that I tend to eat a lot of veggies, and I’m always looking for new ways to eat them. Once it starts getting warm, too, I especially start to make dinner by sticking whatever is in the fridge on top of greens and calling it a meal. However, I’m yet again going to actively be working to have more diversity on this site. I’m sure the salad things won’t stop (I already have an idea of something that is really, really good for next week), but hopefully I’ll have more variety to share with you in the not too distant future.

Luckily for you, this recipe is for asparagus revuelto is a main dish (with veggies of course!) that works for breakfast, lunch or dinner, makes use of the lovely springtime asparagus popping up at all of the markets and grocery stores, comes together pretty quickly, and is absolutely delicious. It’s a pretty humble dish–any dish that’s main ingredient is eggs is pretty humble– but I wouldn’t hesitate serving this to any guests or even at a casual dinner party. The recipe below is only for two servings, but it’s easy to do some multiplication and make it for a crowd. Continue reading “Asparagus revuelto”

Warm asparagus- leek salad

asparagus4Woohoo for spring! You can now sit outside, put away the winter coats and extra layers, and enjoy the pleasure of pulling inchworms off of your clothes when you come in from outside and then watching them inch along on your finger.

You can also find ways to slide asparagus into at least one meal every day, as I’ve been attempting to do as soon as I realized that not freezing weather=asparagus season. Sometimes, I even eat asparagus more than once a day. Continue reading “Warm asparagus- leek salad”

Spring pizza

Asparagus season is almost over, but I’ll continue to take advantage of it until the very, very end. I buy asparagus all the time in the spring, almost every time I go to the grocery store. I usually steam it or roast it, but it’s always refreshing to serve it a new way.

Alas, I found a new way to serve asparagus– pizza. I began making my own pizza a few years ago, after I discovered the blog Smitten Kitchen, and although it takes a bit of planning, it really couldn’t be easier to make from scratch at home.
