You know spring is around the corner when tender young asparagus spears start popping up in the produce section of your grocery store!
When they are thick woody ones snapping the ends off usually means losing 2 or 3 inches off the stalk. I barely lost an inch off these ones!
1 lb asparagus
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper
Once you wash and trim the asparagus, cut them in half.
In a large skillet heat olive oil and add minced garlic. Toss until fragrant, probably less than 1 minute then add the asparagus. Sauté 5 minutes and add salt and pepper to taste.

I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
