Roasted Okra.

Okra is a classic southern vegetable, and it makes a perfect go-to side dish. Personally, I like my okra more crispy than slimy, so roasting it is a wonderful way to go. Cutting it longwise also helps to give it a bit more crunch and feels like a good fry substitution.

It's so simple and tasty, you'll have a new favorite way to enjoy okra! Or, you can always go with the classic Fried Okra if you want to stay true to its roots.

Snap Pea Spring Pasta with Asparagus and Parmesan.

One of my very favorite things about this time of year is simply shopping what's in season.

Driving by and grabbing a farm-fresh watermelon off the back of a truck or walking up to the farmers market in our neighborhood on Saturday morning to see what looks good and throw together a meal. When the ingredients are at their peak it's kind of hard to go wrong. 

Pasta is always an easy way to incorporate seasonal vegetables and with kids it's always a win. This recipe is quick and easy with just a few ingredients and is easily scaleable for a crowd.
