Though we begin to shake off winter’s gray icy grip in March, April is the month where the world really comes back to life again. Bird songs fill the morning air once more, and everywhere you look flowers are bursting into life. Nothing feels better than the warm sun while breathing in that wet, life-giving green smell the ground gives off this time of year. Celebrate the ushering in of new life and bright colors by whipping up one of the following recipes that capture the delicate and playful essence of spring.
