#Brunchweek: Asparagus Salad

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of #BrunchWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.  I stalk the asparagus at the grocery store. (Ha, stalk. Pun not intended.) At the end of winter, it’s still the big fat stalks that […]

Asparagus and Gruyere Tart

I’ve had this recipe saved to make for I don’t even know how long. Tom is not a big fan of asparagus so I rarely get to try out new recipes with asparagus as the star unless it’s a holiday, we’re having people over, or something I can make for […]

Asparagus, Bacon and Egg Salad

I have this habit of making an ingredient one way (especially vegetables) and never really branching out into anything else. When I saw this salad recipe, I knew I really should give it a chance. It’s very rare for me not to have bacon and eggs in the fridge so […]

Asparagus and Sugar Snap Pea Salad

To go along with our Spicy Cilantro Grilled Chicken, I opted to make this asparagus and sugar snap pea salad. My aunt, uncle and Shannon all really like asparagus so it was nice to finally be able to cook it for more than just me. We left the grocery list […]

Despite the fact that I am the only one in the house who eats asparagus, I am always looking for new ways to prepare it. My favorite is grilled because I love how it turns those woody little stalks bright green but still manages to add char marks on them. […]

Crispy Parmesan Asparagus

When I was a kid the only two vegetables I would eat was corn and green beans. Occasionally my mom would try to add in a new vegetable, like asparagus and I wouldn’t touch it. Probably because asparagus from a can has got to be one of the grossest things […]

Prosciutto wrapped Asparagus

Even though I knew that Tom and C won’t eat asparagus and I wasn’t sure if my cousin or her boyfriend would either, I really wanted to make this appetizer. I haven’t had prosciutto in forever! Almost every time I visit my aunt at her beach house in Delaware, she’ll […]

Sugared Asparagus

A couple of months ago I had a very vivid dream that I had just finished decorating my formal dining room in my house. This was pretty strange because I don’t have a formal dining room, let alone a house, the color scheme is not something I’d typically like, and […]

Shrimp and Asparagus Risotto

All week I couldn’t wait to make this recipe. I have a serious obsession with risotto and when the idea to add shrimp and asparagus came into my head, I knew I had to try it out right away.
