Lighten Up With Seasonal Treats ~ A Little Birdie Told Me No. 68

By the pricking of  my thumbs, something delicious this way comes...

Cooking with local, seasonal ingredients is a wonderful way to add variety to your plate.  Today I'm featuring three recipes that use produce that is in season in April & May.  Which season is your favorite for produce?
