spring is in bloom. here at Fancy Little Things and in NY (where the kids & i just spent a week visiting family) and definitely here in southern California where we spent the afternoon at the beach playing and having a picnic, the windows are open in all the rooms, the sun is shining… and the last thing i want to do is cook an elaborate hot meal using up too many dishes!
… and i have two sweet kids that love to help out in the kitchen, taste during the process, stir, mix, blend. these are some of our favorite recipes that will be pulled out to enjoy during this Spring transition into Summer!
