It is so easy to achieve spring deliciousness from the farmers market. All you need to do is buy what looks good, go home and cook. In this week’s Seasonal Pantry, which you can read here, I offer two recipes perfect for the season, Fresh Ricotta with Favas, Chives, Asparagus & Olive Oil and Spring Rice Soup with Peas, Herbs & Eggs. I also promise to post links to some of my favorite spring recipes from Seasonal Pantry’s archives so, Voila! 

What are some of your favorite ways to enjoy spring’s harvest? Please share in the comment section below.
