French Spring Soup
I make this during asparagus season when my husband's patch is producing a lot. It is very fresh tasting, and the longer it sits, the better it is.
Garlic Asparagus with Lime
This fresh tasting asparagus dish is always popular. Try it with Havarti or Swiss cheese melted on top.

Lemon Pea Salad
It's my favorite dish on a hot summer day.
Rack of Lamb with Strawberry Mint Sauce
As far as mint sauces go, I love experimenting with new ideas, especially around Easter time, and I really liked how this came out. The combination of the sweet-savory sauce and the Dijon crumb crust complemented the lamb perfectly.

These spring rolls are a refreshing change from the usual fried variety, and have become a family favorite. They are great as a cool summertime appetizer, and are delicious dipped in one or both of the sauces.

This is a very fun recipe to follow, because Grandma makes it sweet and simple. This pie is thickened with cornstarch and flour in addition to egg yolks, and contains no milk.

I've tried many carrot cakes, and this is my favorite recipe. If you don't like pecans, feel free to leave them out.
