Rhubarb Lime Sparkling Cocktail

Rhubarb Lime Sparkling Cocktail by Alison's AllspiceThis month, the recipe reduxers were challenged to make cocktails/mocktails!  This recipe challenge was entirely new to me.  I have never designed a drink – not one, not even a smoothie!!  I knew I wanted to use fresh fruit to create a great summertime sipper, so I started by doing my research on how to include it in a drink.  There were 2 obvious options, infuse the fruit in a simple syrup or into the alcohol.  I decided to infuse a simple syrup because it was a shorter and simpler task.  I tried this recipe with both raspberries and rhubarb.  Rhubarb was the clear winner, and the rhubarb lime sparkling cocktail was born!

Asparagus Artichoke White Pizza

Asparagus Artichoke White Pizza by Alison's AllspiceI first decided to put asparagus on a pizza simply because I already had some in the fridge.  It was going to be a sun-dried tomato, artichoke, and asparagus pizza.   As life goes, that didn’t happen.  I ran out of sauce, so I ended up using my sun-dried tomatoes in my Asparagus Carbonara recipe.   I hit the drawing board again and decided to try the pizza with a simple white sauce.  This Asparagus Artichoke White Pizza is even better than I had imagined, and a great way to wrap up this years Asparagus Mini-Series!

Lentil Salad with Asparagus and Radish

Lentil Salad with Asparagus and Radish by Alison's Allspice
I really love asparagus.  I think it is the seasonality of it, the fact that it grows for a short time and then it’s gone for the season.  Growing up, I ate farm fresh picked asparagus and now I refuse to buy it from the store; it just doesn’t taste the same.  I love asparagus so much that I created an Asparagus Mini-Series last year that I am challenging myself to continue!  Today I am sharing Lentil salad with Asparagus and Radish for the first Asparagus Mini-Series of 2017!
