Easter is quickly approaching, so it’s time to think of what we are going to make! I wanted to share just a few nourishing recipe links and ideas with you today. But I would love to hear from you too! Please feel welcome to share what you are planning to make and share recipe links too.
Springtime is coming and so are vegetables! Celebrate with lots of fresh young vegetables.
Garlicky Green Beans– Greens beans similar to this recipe usually grace the table whenever we get together with Joel’s family. You can use dried basil instead of fresh (and the vinegar is optional). Just make sure you don’t overcook the garlic!
Roasted Asparagus-One of my favorites! Roasting really brings out the flavor. So delicious.
Of course, braised artichokes sound good too! Here is a video showing you how to make it.
The traditional symbol of spring, the egg! Delicious, nutritious, and “in season” right now.
Herbed Baked Eggs-These are so simple to make, yet so delicious and special. Try them! You’ll like them.
Fluffy Baked Eggs with Roasted-Vegetable Hash This recipe found at Epicurious sounds absolutely delicious! Fluffy, cheesy baked eggs topped with a roasted vegetable hash. Yum.
Food Blogga’s recipe for recipe for Swiss Chard, Potato, and Parmesan Frittata sounds wonderful as well. Just one look at her beautiful picture makes me hungry!
Deviled Eggs with Radishes, Chives and Thyme, I will be playing around with this recipe, as it sounds great! I love the additions it has.

Chicken Apple Sausage An easy to make homemade sausage. Everyone in my household loves this sausage!
You’ll need some biscuits to go with the eggs and sausage. These soaked whole wheat biscuits are wonderful!
