I'm so excited for the first day of spring. It was a long, hard, cold, and brutal winter. And being in my, I don't know, millionth month of pregnancy didn't help either--I've been feeling huge and helpless and utterly exhausted. But a new greener leaf is turning soon--and the infusion of fresh air and bright sunshine and warmer temps is going to revive my spirit and soul... I can feel it in mah bones and in this big belly of mine! Of course, I'll also have a newborn to tend to... but se la vie!

I've been relying on crockpot recipes these last few months--hearty stews, heavy pastas, and satisfying soups. And they've done me well, warming me in the winter, filling my relentless appetite, and making it super easy to feed my family. But with spring on the horizon, I'm ready to switch things up a bit and try a few lighter, brighter, fresher recipes--heavy on the crispy, green veggies and lean proteins.

I've rounded up a few of the most delicious spring-inspired dishes--full of color, texture, and taste. Bon appetite--and enjoy the sunshine! It's coming so soon.
