Summer time means longer days and tons of outdoor activities. It also brings along cravings for something light yet satisfying– the ideal summertime salad.

Every time I make pancakes, I am blown away at how many pancakes my kids can pack down! Unless they consume no less than 8 pancakes, they find themselves hungry. So this type of mealtime mayhem motivated me to come up with a made-from-scratch buttermilk pancake recipe that satisfied our family of six. Also, I highly recommend using King Arthur’s White Whole Wheat Flour. They will never ever suspect it’s anything but plain, white, all-purpose flour!

One of our favorite side dishes are Honey Mustard Roasted Potatoes. They go great with just about any meal! They are super easy to make too! We like to use red potatoes, but you can use your favorite potato. We toss chopped potatoes in the honey mustard sauce and roast until they are tender and slightly crispy. I love extra crispy potatoes so sometimes I will leave them in a little longer.

Asparagus is in season and that makes me very happy! I love asparagus and I am so happy it is back in the grocery stores. If you aren’t familiar with the popular spring vegetable, here are a few tips to help you enjoy asparagus this spring.
- When picking out asparagus at the store, look for stems that are straight, firm, and deep green in color. The tips should be closed with no flowering. Make sure the asparagus spears aren’t dry or wilted.
- To help keep the asparagus spears fresh, wrap the ends in a damp paper towel or place in a jar of water. Place the asparagus in the refrigerator for no longer than 2-3 days before using.
- Before cooking, cut off the woody ends of the asparagus, about 1-2 inches from the bottom of the spears. Discard the tough ends.
- You can cook asparagus in a variety of ways. It is good steamed, sautéed, roasted, and grilled.
