The Best Recipes To Cook, Mix And Bake This May

It's over. Winter is long behind us, taking with it the potatoes, rutabagas, turnips and butternut squash we couldn't possibly have eaten one more serving of. Say it with us now folks: AMEN. At this point, not even macaroni and cheese sounds tempting. Comfort food season is officially done.

Lucky for all of us, that's not a problem because fresh spring produce is in full swing, and with it comes a whole arsenal of new recipes to enjoy. Strawberries make both breakfast and dessert exciting again. Asparagus helps transform pastas into light dishes we can't stop eating. Radishes make for the most interesting salsas. And even salad is better with new greens.

It's time to feast, and we have the 20 recipes you really should make, bake and stir -- yes, there's a cocktail in the mix -- this May.
