Good morning! I’m publishing this monthly roundup one day early, since Sunday seems to be menu-planning day. I can’t believe May is almost here—that’s cookbook release month! Thank you to everyone who has pre-ordered already. You’re the reason why my book has the “#1 New Release in Vegetarian Cooking” banner on Amazon that makes me so happy.
Since I spend so much of my time on the Internet, I often find links that I want to share. I thought I’d offer a few today, and if you like them, we can make it a regular feature in these monthly roundups. On the other hand, if you’re eager for even more cooking inspiration, check out my full May seasonal post here.

“Made it tonight! Very successful. I flipped the asparagus after a couple of initial peals so I ended up in the middle rather than at the end with a thicker end slice. Also, next time I will cut the asparagus into bite sized bits.” – Steven
