- In my stack of cookbooks and burgeoning bookmarks and mailbox-fresh food magazines, oh-so-thousands of recipes called out, "Make me! Make ME!".
- In the supermarket and then the spring-start farmers markets, oh-so-intriguing new vegetables seemed to shout, 'Try me! Try ME!'
So here they are, the second time around.
Swedish Beets ... a summer-time staple, just slice one or two into a lunch-time salads ... only 7 minutes hands-on time
Roasted Asparagus with Feta ... simple, perfect treatment for fat spears
African Pepper, Tomato & Spinach ... a delicious side dish or even a vegetarian main dish ... it has a secret ingredient: peanut butter!

Laura's Carrot Soup ... simple, heart-warming. I'd forgotten just how good this is.
Asian Chicken Salad ... perfect for warm, busy nights, a rotisserie chicken tossed with spinach, bean sprouts, peppers, mango and a delicious lime dressing.
Alice Waters' Coleslaw ... a warm-weather staple, a pile of lime- and cilantro-brightened coleslaw
