Just like the king of vegetables itself, articles and recipes on asparagus started popping up when spring finally arrived earlier this year (check here for many more, and another quick read about Fat or Skinny…). Well, going by the date…

2006
The cold winter months seem to have finally come to an end, making room for warmer weather. Thank god. The flip side of the coin is that many of my favorite wintry dishes will -naturally- be superseded by spring/summer recipes.

2006
It’s not that per se I don’t like to pick up a new cookbook and skim through the pages of mostly great looking dishes, but it’s the steady influx that to an extend is overwhelming and suffocating my desire to read any. So N.’s recent stroke of genius…
