New spring recipe challenge : cooking with what’s in season in the Virginia, D.C. and Maryland region.
As much as we hate the overuse of the phrase “spring has sprung!”, if you take one look at the pollen count in our area over the past few weeks, you know it’s true. (Our constant sneezing is a pretty big tip-off, too).
We hope you’re enjoying this as much as we are – getting outside in the fresh air, shaking off those winter blues, switching out our wardrobe and interior decor – and getting back into the kitchen with what’s fresh and in season. That’s one of the best things about the change in each season, we think: embracing the seasonal flavors in our own kitchens.
We’re pulling together some fun recipes below with seasonal ingredients from our area. Try them out – or suggest some that we should try, too!
