Happy Mother’s Day!-Joyce


Heart Shaped Eggs  Start your Mom’s day with these adorable and easy heart eggs with toast, strawberries and a big mug of coffee. LOVE.

Eggplant Tart1

Summer Vegetable Tart Slices of eggplant, zucchini and tomato alternating with fresh mozzerella baked into a flowery tart.  This is a personal favorite and although it’s not quite summer yet, these vegetables are readily available now or you can substitute what you have on hand.

Asparagus and Goat Cheese Tart5

Asparagus and Goat Cheese Tart  Serve this easy and fast tart with a salad and a glass of wine.  Done!  Top it with cherry tomatoes which will blister and wilt for a colorful presentation.


Endive Salad Bites  (with crumbled goat cheese, avocado, citrus and red grapes) Serve 2 or 3 as a wonderful salad course or platter them as lovely appetizers.


Israeli Couscous with Asparagus, Baby Spinach and Morel Mushrooms  Israeli or Pearl Couscous combined with spring vegetables makes an elegant and delicious vegan dish.


Fava and Spring Pea Risotto with Greens  Risotto with young fava beans and peas is the essence of springtime.  It’s also special in that fava beans are only around for a short time so get them while you can. (vegan)

Beet Peach Salad11

Roasted Beet Salad with Ripe Peaches and Goat Cheese This is a colorful and satisfying salad topped with a yummy balsamic vinaigrette, fresh mint and basil.  Apricots are in season and would make a good substitute if you can’t find good peaches.

Black Bean Quinoa Salad  I love this colorful quinoa salad with mango, red pepper, purple onion and black beans with a tasty cumin orange vinaigrette.  Delicious, happy and vegan!


Meatless Monday – Crostini with Fava Beans and Lemon Ricotta  I love tender young fava beans and piled on top of toasted ciabatta and creamy ricotta with lemon and parmesan = Yum! Pair with  soup or a salad for an elegant meal.


Potato Crusted Spinach Herb Torta Beautiful flowery crust made with potato slices (which taste like french fries) and gluten free. What’s not to love…
