Welcome to this weeks Seasonal Sunday Event!

This week I would like to highlight the following fabulous spring inspired recipes shared at last weeks event.

Asparagus Quinoa Salad from City|Life|Eats
Strawberry-Ginger-Rhubarb Crisp from Hecka- Good Recipes
Chickpea and Zucchini Pasta from Cook With Sara
Zucchini Brownies from the Newlyweds Blog

Today I would like to share with you my very FIRST experience with Rhubarb.. and baked Meringue to be perfectly honest. I had a blast scheming up and planning this recipe- Hope you enjoy it as much as I did..

(Refined Sugar Free) Ginger Meringue Layer “Cake” with Strawberry Rhubarb Puree.

As always – now Its your turn to share…

The Guidelines:

  1. Recipes must contain one Seasonal Ingredient (See below for the list of foods that are currently in season)
  2. You may link up old or new recipes. Wonderful food is always worth sharing! Feel free to share up to 6 recipes each week.
  3. Gluten Free Recipes are NOT required- this event is meant to inspire ideas for all. However I do ask that if your recipe is Gluten Free that you give it the “GF” Label.
  4. Please include a link in your blog in reference to Seasonal Sundays so that your readers may also participate.
