Creamy Asparagus Soup {paleo, vegan}


I had purchased over two pounds of asparagus to eat on Father’s day and the week after. Going on two weeks later, I had barely touched the stuff and knew I needed to find something to use up the remaining asparagus. Many, many years ago I made an amazing cream of asparagus soup. What really…

Asparagus Avocado Toast {w/egg}


After the success of my Avocado Asparagus Omelet Sandwich I was eager to try more asparagus with more bread and more avocado. So the obvious dish to make was avocado toast. With asparagus.

Avocado Asparagus Omelet Sandwich {w/Bacon}


I have no clue exactly what I was looking for when I stumbled upon this recipe for Avocado and Asparagus Omelet Sandwiches at BHG and just dropped what I was doing and stared.

Roasted Asparagus, Blue Cheese and Soft Boiled Egg Salad


I bought two pounds of asparagus the other day with no real plans of what to do with it, which is really odd. I almost never buy perishable foods without a plan in mind. I also bought a huge tub of mixed greens to make salad so I thought I would try to find another…

Arugula, Avocado and Asparagus Salad


Mmmm. So I discovered that roasted asparagus tastes delicious in salad after I made a salad with asparagus, bacon and blue cheese and then I immediately wanted more of it. So I perused Pinterest to find other salad recipes that included roasted asparagus. I have to tell you, there aren’t a ton. People, listen up….

Roasted Asparagus Bacon Blue Cheese Arugula Salad


This week I purchased a package of spinach, a package of arugula and a package of romaine lettuce with really nothing in mind with what to do with any of them besides the arugula. I intended to and succeeded in recreating a salad my sister made over Christmas.  I’m not sure about you but I…

Bacon-wrapped Filet Mignon and Brown Butter Asparagus


I found some pre-packaged bacon-wrapped filet at the grocery store this morning at what seemed like an amazing price. So I promptly searched how to cook these babies and found a standard recipe that everyone seems to use with maybe some slight variation. I had some asparagus in the refrigerator that needs to be used…

Creamy Cheesy {Italian} Asparagus


Did you know there’s such thing as “Creamed Asparagus on Toast”? Really. There is. Google it. There are tons of recipes. I discovered the recipe (which seems like an odd combination if you ask me) when I was searching for a recipe for creamed asparagus. In fact even recipes that I thought might actually be…

Asparagus Risotto


Last week I made the best risotto I think I’ve ever made in my life. It was even better than the risotto Jen, Kyna, Rosie and I shared (the night before I made my own) at Portland Prime. The last time I made risotto I failed hard. It turned out gummy and gluey. But this…

Asparagus Roasted in Garlic Aioli


I have a giant stack of recipes that I comb through every once in a while for inspiration or at the holidays when I’m planning a huge feast.

Three Cheese Asparagus and Mushroom Pizza


Updated 4.7.2018 Last week my sister made asparagus pizza two nights in a row. At first I thought the idea of asparagus pizza was a little weird (even though I love asparagus).

Spinach and Asparagus Pie


Having wanted to try a savory “pie” for quite some time now, I decided that the aging asparagus in my fridge was the perfect excuse. I found this recipe at the foodnetwork.com. The recipe was supposed to be asparagus and tomato; however, the diced tomato I bought from New Seasons did not appear very diced…

Asparagus-Spinach Pancakes


I’m a little bit amazed to discover that I like almost any kind of pancake made with almost any ingredient.
