What To Cook This March

For once, I am early. I thought we might as well get a jump start on March (Happy Leap Day!). Spring is near Kansas City, that’s for sure. I’m thrilled for warmer weather, but the spring forecast for clouds and spring showers doesn’t bode well for cookbook photography. I’m chasing light through my house while the sun’s still out and praying for more sunshine. Please send your extra sun rays my way!

March brings fresh greens, peas and asparagus to the markets. You’ll find my March recipe picks below. We ended up with a strong taco theme, which I love. Don’t forget to post photos on Instagram when you make a recipe shown here—tag your photo #ckmarch and #cookieandkate so we can all share the experience!

“I’m always looking for recipes that include a lot of veggies so this was perfect for me. It was my first time cooking with asparagus, fresh parsley, and scallions (I confused shallots with scallions. They’re both onion-like so I was close!). My favorite thing about this recipe was the flavoring that the lemon juice added and my last favorite was the big bite of parsley that I took! Thanks a lot!” – Loni
