Spice rubbed baby back ribs with homemade red wine BBQ sauce Recipe
By
These ribs are amazing. So tasty and a great depth of flavor from the combination of the rub and the sauce. Slow cooking the ribs first makes them juicy and tender. I definitely recommend taking the extra time to make your own sauce - the red wine makes it more of a sauce than a condiment, if that makes sense. We served them with grilled asparagus and fried onion strings.

Roast lamb
Chef Liam Spence of Seattle's Lola serves this leg of lamb with a lamb jus (lamb stock reduced by half, cooked with chopped shallots, rosemary, red wine, bay leaf, and peppercorns, then strained) and a mixture of shaved fennel and chopped mixed green olives. For a complete spring meal fit for Easter or your next dinner party, pair the lamb with crisp roast fingerling potatoes and a spinach, fennel, and asparagus salad (mint jelly, of course, on the side). — Allison Beck

Svelte Green Goddess Dip
Those of you with an herb garden will find this summertime dip easy to make—the recipe turns a bundle of fresh-clipped herbs into a delicate green, creamy sauce. Because the dip is light and refreshingly herbaceous, the perfect dippers to go with it are garden-fresh vegetables such as asparagus spears, baby carrots, radishes, and cucumber.

Add vegetables and this doubles as a perfectly good summer soup. I use asparagus stock here because this sauce is going to accompany my Asparagus Paella, but feel free to replace it with basic stock.   Click here to read the full story on Dirt Candy: A Cookbook.

Smokin' Salmon Pizza
"In Norway, we eat a lot of salmon: poached, oven-baked, grilled—you name it. We also eat a lot of gravlax (cured salmon) and, of course, smoked salmon. Asparagus is a vegetable we often serve with salmon, and we also use it on this delightful pizza." - Craig Whitson and Tore Gjesteland, authors of Passion for Pizza: A Journey Through Thick and Thin to Find the Pizza Elite

Grilled Shrimp and Fiddlehead Spring Salad
You want spring? You want hope? You want optimism? You want a salad? I do. Ramps, fiddleheads, asparagus — gimme spring. Gimme warm weather. Gimme grilling. Gimme spring now and give it to me all at once. No? Too bad, I'm taking it. That's what this salad does, wrenches spring and warm-weather cooking from winter's cold, dead hands. As iconic a vegetable as ramps are, fiddleheads are so much cooler looking. All curled up on themselves like some crazy alien vegetable. Crunchy. Vibrant. And they're supposedly a great source of antioxidants, Omega 3, Omega 6, and iron. So this recipe takes spring and throws it all together: asparagus, fiddleheads, spring peas, three different preparations of vegetables and grilling. A glass (or two) of Robert Sinskey rosé and you're golden. Cause when you've been waiting for summer this long it's time to jump in to spring all at once.
