As the days slowly get longer, sunnier and warmer, my palate has been bugging me for something fresh, light and purely spring-like. I've been pouring through my cookbooks looking for recipes for fruit salads, leafy green salads, waldorf salads, creamy pies, etc.
Gone are my yearnings for hot-from-the-oven cookies, heavy winter meals, winter vegetables, hot herbal teas and citrus.
Now, I want light, whipped desserts, BBQ, corn on the cob and straight from the garden veggies, lemonade and berries.
If I have the means, I may indulge in this week's grocery run for a fruit salad and ingredients for an icebox pie. Yum!
