Favorite spring dishes and menus?
What are your fool-proof, most delicious spring recipes? My new husband and I are hosting Easter, and we're having another dinner party next week. The farmer's market just opened up for the season, and I'm just dying to go in there with a few menu plans in mind and go wild! (Also, I really want to step it up on breaking in all my registry goodies, and use every single pot and appliance before summer, mwuahaha.) Share anything: appetizers, cocktails, entrees, breakfasts, and, mmm, desserts!
