While today's chilly weather is deceiving, spring is definitely here. Local, organic apples and pears are nowhere to be found and are starting to be replaced (slowly) with asparagus, fiddleheads, rhubarb, and the coveted ramps. While I adore my kale salads and roasted root veggies, I am excited to start adding some lighter, springy produce into my menu rotation. Before you know it will be blueberry season. Yes! Note: I have been known to eat a pint of blueberries a day in July and August.

This week I have been lucky enough to spend several nights at home making dinner. As much as I love socializing with friends sometimes nothing makes me happier than a simple meal that I can eat in my sweats while watching my newest TV obsession, Revenge. Have you seen it? All I can say is that I must be doing something wrong when I am in the Hamptons. My summers are NEVER that dramatic! Who has time for drama when their are blueberries to be eaten?!

Last night for dinner I experimented with a new asparagus dish that is now certain to go into heavy rotation in my kitchen. The sweet, garlicky miso marinade is delicious when roasted. Enjoy!
