What’s New on Pinterest: Spring is Here!


Spring is Here. Truly. Time to spring forward with menu ideas, swapping in-season freshness (think pea, fennel and mint soup) for winter’s rib-sticking stews. Make aheads of chickpea, tomato and basil salad, spring rolls and tomato-basil-artichoke chicken help get chow on the table fast. Turn spring’s greens into a cheery cherry tomato, leek and spinach quiche; spring vegetable gnocchi; asparagus-goat cheese souffl√©; beet, avocado and grapefruit salad; or a spring pizza with egg, prosciutto and asparagus. Blend smoothies for slurpable nourishment on the way from point A to point B activities or stir sippable cocktails and teas for relaxing at home or outdoor concerts. And, we have a sweet spot for pretty desserts -- pavlova with berries and lemon curd, pastel macarons, strawberry pie and blueberry Key lime cupcakes to name a few.

#Foodgram: Pastry and Chocolate Chef Daniel Jongsma


The sugary gems pastry and chocolate chef/lover Daniel Jongsma turns out rival jewels to those in any store or museum…excepting these are also edible. See for yourself on Daniel.83. Did we mention he’s on the Dutch pastry team (Team NL) and won a bronze medal at the World Pastry Team Championship in Las Vegas? A prize catch.
