Let’s chat about all of the bright and fresh recipes to make in April!
While this month is still a bit of transition to Spring, there are still a lot of delicious dishes to make.
Plus I’ve got ideas for your Easter and Mother’s Day menus!
If you enjoy cooking more seasonally, I highly recommend Six Seasons by Joshua McFadden. He walks you through all of the ways to enjoy vegetables from early-Spring through Winter. This book has given me so many new ideas on how to cook different vegetables during this time of year.
And speaking of vegetables, I’m currently planning what to plant in my vegetable garden! Growing your own food is absolutely so satisfying. Once we’re in the midst of the summer I love being able to go outside and pick what I need for the recipe I’m cooking. This year I’m going to try a different type of kale along with watermelon radishes and some of our other favourites like beets, carrots, lettuces, peppers and tomatoes.
Head to this post for some of my top gardening tips!
