Seasoned Opinions

March brings with it the winter thaw and the entrance of spring. When it comes to the kitchen, that means bringing out fresh ingredients, gentle cooking methods and splashes of color. Ingredients that want little or no cooking become fun additions or centerpieces of our menus and a rainbow on a plate is easy to achieve with a trip to the farmers' market. So this month, we're asking you to share your favorite spring dish(es) with us. Are you a salad nut? Is stir-fry your love? We want to hear about it!

I'll begin. I like keeping things very simple in spring. That means planning ahead so that putting together meals takes minutes instead of hours. Having a wide variety of vegetables on hand means a salad or stir-fry can come together quickly, but my favorite spring dishes include things like fresh asparagus and are portable, like wraps and sandwiches. With the weather finally getting nice enough to encourage lots of outdoor time, impromptu picnics become the norm. It's a great time of the year to explore in the kitchen and beyond!

Each month, we ask a different question here. Your answers and feedback will appear below in the comments section. We encourage you to check out everyone else's answers and make comments and suggestions. This is a great way to get to know people who love reading this electronic magazine. Who knows, your next Internet friend may be a few clicks away!
