Fresh Spring Recipes
The spring holidays start with St. Patrick's Day and end with Father's Day, sandwiching Easter and Mother's Day in the middle. It's a time for celebrating our loved ones!
The recipes for these spring holidays tend to be light and bright, celebrating the end of winter. Utilize the new crop of vegetables like asparagus, broccoli, and spinach to bring flavor to the table. Chicken is a springtime favorite but lamb or ham are often served at Easter. Fresh fruit (especially citrus), coconut, and almond are perfect ingredients for desserts.
Of course St. Patrick's Day is perfectly celebrated with cocktails like this Irish Redhead!
