Along with Spring onions, leeks have been all over the farmers markets. Although they're in season year-round here in California, lately they've been too fresh-looking to pass up. Like scallions, these alliums are long stems of bundled leaf sheaths, but they have a much milder, mellower flavor, making them a favorite even amongst the onion-averse. For more ideas about choosing, caring for, and consuming them, keep on reading.

In my attempt to cook with more peak-season produce, I left the farmers market this week with a giant canvas tote full of Spring onions, young alliums with a tender texture and a milder flavor. And in my search to find something to make with them, I managed to discover the holy grail of appetizers.
Onions, fresh goat cheese, and baguette don't sound like much, but trust me, the sum is greater than its parts. The key is to slow-simmer the Spring onions in a zesty agrodolce sauce, until they've developed a deep caramel flavor and reduced to a thick jam. Spread it on top of crunchy crostini with creamy chèvre, and the rest is guaranteed to be history. For a crowd-pleasing vegetarian appetizer, you'll want to read more.

Roast chicken and potatoes is one of my go-to meals for quick entertaining. All you have to do is season with herbs and olive oil and toss the two ingredients in the oven. However, when I'm in the mood for something a little more special than chicken, I change it up and use delicate, flaky salmon fillets.
The key is to cook each of the elements (potatoes, asparagus, salmon) for different amounts of time. Start with the potatoes, then add the asparagus, and finally the salmon. It's not as simple as a chicken, but it's a delicious and sophisticated meal that's perfect for a celebratory occasion like Easter. Keep reading for the uncomplicated and rewarding recipe.
If you've never had a pavlova, a delicious dessert made with meringue, whipped cream, and fresh fruit, you've got to make one this weekend. Seriously, this is one special dessert! I've recently introduced it to my parents and friends and they were blown away by its scrumptiousness. Don't be intimidated by the meringue; it may sound fancy, but it's simply egg whites mixed with sugar. It can be made in advance, but the whipped cream and fruit is best prepared just before serving. Feel free to use your favorite combination of fruit for the topping; everything from strawberries to mangoes work wonderfully. Ready for the recipe?
