Spring Recipe Round-Up

Spring has officially sprung in California and my heart is bursting with excitement for all the fresh produce making it’s way onto the scene. Fava beans, strawberries, squash and bunches of greens are calling my name and I can’t wait to get back to making some of my favorite fresh recipes for this time of year. Below are a few of my go-to spring bites from the recipe archives (full list HERE) in case you are looking for some inspiration during your next visit to the market.
