Sensational Recipes to Celebrate Spring

Fast, fun, and easy ways to brighten up your weeknight suppers and spring parties alike.

Now that April showers are finally giving way to May flowers, it’s time to embrace the season with fresh recipes packed with some of our favorite ingredients, starting with seven delectable crab recipes. From an old-fashioned blue crab boil to soft-shell sandwiches, get crackin’ on these seasonal dishes that make the most of the catch. Don’t worry, we didn’t forget our mega-tasty take on the classic: the Best-Ever Crab Cakes with Green Tomato Slaw. (That one might be our favorite of the bunch.) Since grilling season is officially underway, invite the whole crowd over and serve up our next-level kebabs. We’re giving five sensational skewer recipes that are just as quick, delicious, and easy for weeknight dinners as for summer cookouts. Steak, chicken, pork, shrimp, and veggie—there’s a kebab for everyone. We paired these grabbable mains with superfast side dishes like Mexican Green Rice and Quick Pickled Slaw. When you find yourself too busy for a grill-out, throw together our quick and flavorful Sheet Pan Greek Chicken with Roasted Potatoes, topped with a fresh tomato-and-feta topping, for an easy one-pan supper. Top off any of these seasonal meals with our Thyme-Scented Blueberry Pie, and you won’t be disappointed with the fragrant twist to a berry-filled dessert. It’s time to celebrate the season!
