It seems like spring is finally starting to arrive around the country. After this harsh winter, it is very much welcome. With spring comes the start of fresh produce and farmer’s markets. I can’t wait for the farmer’s markets to be in full swing again, it is always my favorite part of the weekend.

 I am so ready for spring that I already started some of my garden. I started a few things with seeds, and they are sitting by the window already starting to bloom.

Asparagus and peas are two spring veggies that are easy to find. Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables, so I love when I can start to find it at the store on sale. Easter is coming up very soon, and I know I am going to have lots of ham leftover.

This creamy gnocchi dish is perfect to use up some veggies you have around as well as that leftover ham. Plus, it comes together in about 20 minutes, so it is perfect for a busy weeknight. I made this for the ladies of my cooking club this month. It received rave reviews. I think that everyone went back for seconds of this delicious creamy gnocchi.

I love trying out new gadgets in the kitchen. For this recipe, I used the Dreamfarm OnPot. The OnPot is a fun little gadget that fits on the edge of any lid. It allows you to open the pot, and have it rest on the edge, so all of the condensation and food splatter drips back into the pot. Great for easy clean up! Plus it comes in all sorts of fun colors.

I don't know about you, but I love it when kitchen gadgets come in fun colors. Want one of these Dreamfarm OnPots for your very own? Win it in this awesome giveaway just to celebrate Spring, along with Dreamfarm's Garject Lite, Vebo, and Chobs too!
