The warmer weather has got me in the mood for brighter, lighter fare. Here's some links from around the blogosphere for springtime menu inspiration.

Seasonal pasta recipes
(creamy fettuccine with prosciutto, asparagus, mushrooms, and peas) [via Bon Appetit]

Creamy spring vegetable gratin [via The Kitchn]

A spring crostini bar [via 20 Something Cupcakes]

A seasonal dinner party menu (gin rickey, ramp pesto, lemon and vegetable risotto) [via Food 52]

Pretty raspberry-rhubarb crostata [via Eat Make Read]

And from the Dinner Party archives:
Ramp pesto (and a brunchy recipe with eggs)
Tuna, asparagus, and new potato salad with chive vinaigrette and fried capers
Spring panzanella
Strawbaby shortcakes
Roasted rhubarb
Grapefruit yogurt cake

The crostata looks great. Is that a real picture taken recently at the top? If so, spring definitely seems to be around.

Lisa said...

Yes! It's cherry blossom season around here. (And allergy season too.)

Great post. I love the cherry blossom. Really beautiful.

Daniel said...

Is that tear in my eye appreciation for the beauty of the cherry blossoms or the start of a vicious pollen attack?

I made that spring vegetable gratin last night for dinner - so good! Thanks for sharing it.

Lisa said...

Julie: Glad to hear it!
