Happy Weekend //

This is the first year in quite some time that I will not be hosting Easter festivities at my house. Instead, we'll be going to my husband's parents with the kids {of course}, my brother-in-law and my two nephews. It's strange not being in the throws of cleaning the house and planning the menu - especially since Easter is my favorite holiday to host. Although the strangeness of it was soon replaced with relief that we can sit back, plant some pansies and dye some eggs this weekend!
This Food Blog Love post is inspired not only by Easter, but also by Spring in general - my most favorite of the seasons. When asparagus, bitter greens, fava and cranberry beans, citrus, morels and strawberries are beginning to appear. Whatever you're weekend plans are, I hope these gorgeous recipes inspire you to get cooking...

I never ask questions like this, and usually comment on the actual recipe itself. . . But, Can I ask where you bought that "Pounder" (Meat Mallet)?

I'm not sure if I bought mine at W&S or not - but they happen to sell the same one.
