When you think spring, you think crisp and clean — and it’s no different when it comes to spring cooking. We always desire the freshest, most delicious ingredients!

And while we may not be like the Barefoot Contessa who has an entire herb garden in her backyard, we certainly love to make our way to the local farmer’s market to pick out fresh herbs. We also like to plant a few of our faves with the MakersKit Kitchen Herb Garden DIY Kit (it’s also available in our FabFitFun Spring Box).

Whether it be thyme, parsley, or fresh basil, we have several healthy recipes that will have you cooking up a storm this spring. Plus, these recipes are perfect to get your summer bod ready without skimping on flavor.
