Lemony Zucchini Arugula Pesto

Lemony Zucchini Arugula Pesto by Alison's AllspiceEvery morning I eat my breakfast cereal over a cooking magazine.  My husband thinks I’m crazy to eat food and read about it at the same time, but it works for me.  Heck, maybe I am crazy, only time will tell!  I recently came across the idea to make zucchini into a pesto.  I turned from the table, looked at my pile of garden zucchini on the counter, and immediately marked the page for later!  My lemony zucchini arugula pesto is great as a dip or a spread!

Grilled Clam Stuffed Mushrooms with Tomato Relish

I instantly wrote up my own variation and dubbed it worthy of a grill out night.  And thus, grilled clam stuffed mushrooms with tomato relish was born.  Continue reading

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!
