30+ Recipes for Spring and Easter: fresh, fruity and vibrant dishes to celebrate the warmer weather and coming of summer!

There have been plenty of times in the midst of winter I have wondered why on Earth we live in Manitoba, where winter can last nearly half the year and the beginning of Spring on March 20 is a dream that is not usually fulfilled. There have also been plenty of times we get a fresh dumping of snow on May long weekend and I, again, wonder what we are doing here.

But I think part of the reason we love it (other than the fact that all of our family is here) is because we enjoy the changing of the seasons. I often wonder how we could truly appreciate the coming of Spring if we didn’t suffer those often horribly long winters. I don’t think I really would!

So when Spring finally rolls around here (much, much later than the rest of the world most years), we are desperate for fresh air and fresh produce. And I like to think we appreciate both of those much more than if we had them year round! (Not that we don’t have fresh air year round, but being able to crack the windows for the first time and let that Spring air sweep through the house? Amazing!).

This year, however, we’ve had an incredibly mild winter and, though I’m trying not to get my hopes up too high, I am hopeful that Spring is here to stay!

    Guuurl, as a FL native who now gets seasons living in NC, I can attest to the fact that you DO NOT appreciate seasons if you live in a place where it’s always hot. I couldn’t be more thankful to finally experience nature’s beauty, and that includes WINTER! 😉 Love this roundup of all things Spring fabulous! I wish I could make them all at once and face plant into a smorgasbord of spring deliciousness! So much yum!! Cheers, Ashley – to a wonderful Easter!

    Hi Ashley! Spring has arrived here YAY! I’m looking forward to our asparagus patch starting to produce – usually we get some just in time for E aster but I think it’s going to be a little later this year 🙁 I printed out the pea salad and vanilla cake doughnut recipes. When I make macaroni salad I always add peas. Funny how foods we would refuse to eat as kids become our favorites as adults! 🙂

      That is funny! I never liked lemon as a child and now I’m obsessed with it! We are supposed to get more snow this week… 🙁 Hopefully it doesn’t last long and we can get on to the warmer weather! Happy Easter Dorothy!
