March Madness Munchies: Game Changing Recipes & More

Besides being the first day of Spring, today also marks the start of March Madness or the battle of the brackets! My choice was to source seasonal recipes like asparagus with hollandaise and pastel petit fours, or chose all things boozy, gooey, salty and sweet. Mr. "Shop This," my Foodie Friday Sous Chef, won. 

HERE:  17 Savory & Sweet Treats

Antipasti Kabobs
I just can not resist a recipe with a creative presentation. The hardest part of this easy recipe might be finding the Mother's In Law pasta. If your local market doesn't carry it, you can find it at Amazon. Clock HERE
