Tips for Springtime Baking

There are so many spring recipes out there! Here are a few tips on how you can make the most of them!

  • Stock Up: If you and your family love things treats with pastel m&m’s, cadbury eggs or anything like that then make sure to stock up on them at the beginning of the season. Keep a few bags in your pantry. That way, if you have any holiday potlucks, you won’t have to worry about the stores being all out! And trust me, those things go fast!
  • Cook for the season: It’s easy to cook seasonally because the grocery stores usually have entire aisles dedicated to the season! Spring is all about egg recipes, vegetables (especially peas!) and also bringing back fresh fruit into all of your salads!
  • Host a potluck: To get the most out of your recipes (and to try new ones!) then host a potluck at your house! Assign people a type of spring dish to bring. You can bring your favorites too and then you will have an entire list of new things to try!
  • Food coloring: The best way to make any dish feel like spring, especially to kids, is to use food coloring! Have some of this on hand and you can make anything those beautiful, pastel spring colors!
