Cooking up Spring! Tweet 9th May 20139/05/13 Amy's Blog Amy Hanten 1 Comment Video Link It’s finally feeling like spring here in the Midwest and boy are we loving it! I’ve been cooking up some of my favorite spring recipes on TV. They’re perfect for Mother’s Day too! I was in Chicago on WGN-TV putting together the perfect spring dinner. (Watch video here) My motto is keep it easy! Start with my Strawberry Fields salad. I just pick up a bag of fresh spinach, slice up some strawberries, toast almonds and crumble feta cheese on the top. Then, I shake up a light strawberry vinaigrette to drizzle over the top. Toss to coat. Wow, is it good! So, pretty too! For dinner, my elegant Chicken and Ham Casserole with Swiss cheese is perfect! Great when company is coming too because you can make it ahead! My Lemony Asparagus makes a nice side dish. I love asparagus and this time of year it’s a sure sign on spring! Finally for dessert, there might not be flowers coming up in the garden yet, but my Flower Pot Desserts will make everybody smile! They are so cute! The kids can help with these too!
