Meal Plan for April Week 4

This month, Summer Miller is back, sharing her meal plans for April. Summer is a mom, a full-time food writer, and also helps test the fabulous recipes we bring you every week at Simply Recipes.

Each spring I tiptoe out to my garden to check the buds on our perennials and the blossoms on our apple trees, and to plant seeds for early-season vegetables. As an avid gardener, I want to spend these extra hours of daylight outside with my hands in the dirt.

My kids have cabin fever as well. By this time in the season their bike tires have been inflated, their jackets flung off, and they want to spend their afternoons in the crisp spring air.

Dinner for this week is all about quick, simple, and not overly fussy meals. Friday's dish will take the most time, but hopefully the weather is warm and your time at the stove can be rewarded with dinner outside on the deck.

THIS WEEK: Baked Chicken Parmesan, Brown Butter Pasta with Spinach, Grilled Pork Tenderloin, and more!

Firecracker Chicken

by Nick Evans

Firecracker chicken recipe

I'm not sure that you'll find anything exactly like this Firecracker Chicken if you actually travel to China. No, this is definitely an Americanized version of Chinese stir-fry!

It's common on some popular Chinese take-out menus—and with good reason, because it's delicious.

 

Singapore Noodles with Shrimp

Singapore Rice Noodles Recipe

Ok, a disclaimer before we get started: The Pu Pu Platter in a Chinese restaurant isn't something you would find in a restaurant in China. And Singapore noodles are unknown in Singapore.

My Singaporean friend was surprised when he noticed the item on a Chinese restaurant menu here in the United States, and couldn't imagine where it was from.

8 Best Asparagus Recipes to Make this Spring

Asparagus Recipes for Spring

One of the first green veggies to pop up in the spring is asparagus. Granted, we can buy it at the super market year round, but it really does taste sweetest in spring, when it's in season.

 

Mushroom Toast with Fried Egg

by Sheryl Julian

Mushrooms on toast with egg

All you have to say is "eggs and toast" and I'm on board.

Add a mound of sautéed mushrooms on top, and now the dish looks and tastes like something more elaborate. It's just eggs and toast, but the mushrooms elevate it. Instead of an everyday breakfast, suddenly it's a brunch dish, a quick supper, or part of a menu for guests.

What's in Season in April?

by Elise Bauer

What's in Season in April, Seasonal Produce Guide

Welcome Spring, and welcome to month 4 of our Monthly Seasonal Produce Guides!

April is all about spring vegetables—asparagus and artichokes are at their peak, snap peas begin to make an appearance, as well as young carrots with their fern-like carrot tops, and fava beans. Spring garlic, spring onions, leeks and fennel are thriving, as are the first spring radishes.

Winter citrus are fading, and while we are seeing some early strawberries, the “fruit” of April isn’t really a fruit, but a vegetable that acts like one—rhubarb. Perfect for pies and cobblers.

Meal Plan for April Week 3

This month, Summer Miller is back, sharing her meal plans for April. Summer is a mom, a full-time food writer, and also helps test the fabulous recipes we bring you every week at Simply Recipes.

Here we are squarely in the latter half of April and ready to celebrate the best of spring.

We don't think much about it anymore, but eggs are actually seasonal. Chickens are photosensitive, which means they lay more eggs as our days grow longer. It's also about this time of spring where cool nights followed by warm wet afternoons, and morel mushroom season begins.

It only seems fitting, then to start the week off with a dish that pairs two of my favorite in-season products – eggs, and mushrooms!

8 Best Recipes to Celebrate Asparagus!

8 Best Recipes to Celebrate Asparagus!

Have you been eying those bunches of fresh green asparagus on display at the market? So have we!

Right now, asparagus is at its seasonal peak. The spears are so crisp and sweet that they barely need more than a quick steam on the stovetop and a drizzle of olive oil before they’re ready to serve.

But if you’re looking for more ways to highlight this favorite spring vegetable, read on.

We’ve got ideas for making a quick skillet dinner with shrimp, turning it into asparagus pesto (yes, really!), pureeing it into a creamy asparagus soup, and more. Plus how to pick the best asparagus and keep it fresh until you’re ready to turn it into dinner.
