Grilled Apricots
“This  dish requires no skill at all.  Just halve the fruit and plop them, cut side down, on a screaming hot grill pan.  Leave them for a minute or so, then flip them over onto a plate, top with a dollop of creme fraiche (or yogurt) and a sprinkle of pistachios.  The drizzle of pomegranate molasses makes the flavors pop, and you could substitute any really good fruity vinegar.  It can be a first course, a salad, or a dessert.”- Sue of The View From Great Island food blogFind her original recipe here!

"I wasn’t sure what to call this delicate egg dish that lands somewhere between an omelet and a crepe, with a tiny dash of soufflé in there somewhere. One thing I am sure about is that it is no ordinary egg dish. When you want to give someone the royal treatment one morning, this is the call. It’s not as straightforward as a standard omelet because it requires extra elbow grease to whip the egg whites and a deft hand to flip it over. Don’t worry if you don’t get it right the first time. It will still be tasty, even if it’s not perfectly pretty."-Katie Sullivan MorfordFrom Rise and Shine by Katie Sullivan Morford, © 2016 by Katie Sullivan Morford. Photographs  © 2016 by Erin Scott.

Asparagus With Crème Fraîche and Parmesan
Rich, creamy, and light as air—this is a really nice, simple way to serve asparagus. During its season, I like to eat local asparagus whenever I can. Use a mixture of white and green if possible—the contrasting colors and subtly different flavors are great together. Borage is not so easy to find in stores but if, like me, you grow the herb in your garden, scatter a few flowers over the top just before serving.Excerpted from SPRING by Skye Gyngell by arrangement with Quadrille Publishing, distributed by Chronicle Books, Copyright © 2016 by Skye Gyngell.
