Sweet & Savoury Spring Recipe Must Makes

hello spring!

It seems a bit ironic to be talking about Spring when we just got a huge dump of snow here in YEG…but it was officially Spring as of March 20th, and we really did have beautiful weather for the last few weeks so I’m moving in that direction and bringing Spring to NITK!

I know I mostly showcase my own recipes on the blog and have guests posts intermittently but there is such amazing talent and wonderful healthy recipes out there that I wanted to round-up some that I’d love to share with you! To me, all of these recipes are Spring inspired as they are either filled with seasonal Spring foods or they would make the perfect addition to the diet for some “Spring cleaning” after the heavier, filling meals of winter!

Strawberries, asparagus, spring onion, peas, cherries, rhubarb, and more… mmm… let the Springtime goodness begin!

sweet.

When I was 20 I had my first real travel experience. Yes, I’d been to Disneyland and different areas in Canada before then, but I had never travelled overseas. This first big trip changed me forever.

Ah, the start of March, makes me think of Spring! Although, we Albertans typically get winter for another two months or so… BUT I’m not thinking of that right now as I’m still basking away in the Hawaiian sun!  Spring always makes me think of carrot cake, likely because of Easter so this recipe is right on…
