Spring Meets Comfort Food

So, I am not reorganizing my cookbook collection by topic or color, I’m not drywalling the garage, and I’m not reading War and Peace. But boy, oh boy, am I finding time to cook. And thank goodness I still actually love it. This would be a hell of a time to find out that I am not all that crazy about cooking.  
And like everyone, I’m getting scrappier and scrappier in the kitchen. I throw away almost nothing—leftover herbs turn into Herby Brown Rice, and bread that's getting stale becomes bread crumbs. I have also been making granola like a 1970s hippie mom, which my family has been ingesting at a brisk clip. Literally two double batches a week, and that’s not enough. And that leaves me with a lot of unused egg yolks (the whites help bind the oats and fruit into appealing little clumps). So this morning a copious amount of homemade mayonnaise was made, plenty enough to share with friends and my mom, who is having a serious mayonnaise moment.  
OK, so, what’s on deck these days? Spring meets comfort food (also budget-friendly).
Solidly in the comfort food sector: Cheesy Garlic Bread. Buttery, cheesy, garlicky, this is the oh-my-god cheesy garlic bread of your dreams.

This is the best kind of old-fashioned macaroni salad, starring a simple dressing and elbows and perfect for socially-distanced picnics and barbecues. But seriously people: socially distanced.

This spring-gorgeous colorful medley of vegetables is delicious atop an olive oil-slicked piece of toast. Crumbled cheese on top is another pop of texture and flavor.

A simple ramp pasta to make the most out of the ultraseasonal ingredient. If you have them growing in your area, do not let the weeks go by without harvesting them before they are gone. I have heard from so many of you who have made thisit’s a handful of ingredients that adds up to so much.

Ripe avocados waiting to be put to good use? Make this ten-minute creamy dip. Dunk pita or tortilla chips or vegetables in it, or spread it on bread when you are making sandwiches, anything from turkey to ham to BLTs.
