Craving warm, hearty meal on a cool spring evening? Savor a creamy bowl of asparagus soup with leeks and shallots. Garnish with cheesy Parmesan and never look back.

Try savory, garlicky arugula pesto for a new way to love this green standard. Grab a few mushrooms at your local farmers’ market and enjoy a simple but delightful sauteed mushroom dish that’s welcome on any occasion.

Warm weather berries add a pop of sweetness to your favorite crumbly, flaky pastry in these blueberry-buttermilk scones. Don’t forget your napkin!
