Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Citrus Asparagus Sauté

To me the flavor of spring is asparagus, and this simple preparation of fresh asparagus is very light and springy. Not to mention incredibly delicious and easy to make. It is also low fat, low carb, vegan and pareve for Passover, making it a very versatile recipe for entertaining.

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 pounds trimmed asparagus
Freshly ground pepper
3 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons orange juice
Lemon and orange peel curls for garnish (optional)

Heat the olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the asparagus and sauté for 10-15 minutes, or until the asparagus is lightly brown and tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper and drizzle with the lemon and orange juices and remove to a serving dish. Garnish with the peel curls (if desired) and serve hot.

Makes 6 servings.
