My Grandmother has made this quite a few times and always gets raves. It is so yummy, especially on a hot summer day.

I used the juice of the asparagus in place of some of the water instead of discarding it. This is a lite delicious recipe. It's not just for summer but makes a tasty and pretty holiday side dish. Read More

I really didn't like this recipe. It was very easy to make but just wasn't the taste that I was looking for. Read More
