10 things to cook in May

1. Asparagus Salad With Canadian Ricotta Fritters
Tossing fresh raw asparagus (which tastes nothing like the cooked version) in a tangy vinaigrette makes for a deliciously light salad. Use a vegetable peeler for the thinnest ribbons.

4. Rhubarb Mint Fizz
Every season needs a cocktail—and this one is perfect for spring! The rhubarb syrup lasts for days in the fridge, and it's excellent drizzled over ice cream. Freeze some of the season's rhubarb ( learn how to here) to celebrate spring any time of year!

Gruyère and Bacon Quiche
Quiche can have many different fillings, but Gruyère and bacon are a classic combination (a.k.a. quiche Lorraine). Serve hot or cold, at brunch, for lunch or as a light dinner. Quiche is a versatile springtime meal.

Milk Chocolate Scones
These cream scones are tender, flaky and studded with milk chocolate, and they're a treat for brunch or after dinner. The key to perfect scones is not overworking the dough. It's OK if the dough looks a little ragged, so resist the urge to knead more than a few times.

Rhubarb season is short, so take advantage while you can and make this honey-scented cobbler. The buttermilk biscuits topping this cobbler are perfect for soaking up those sweet-tart rhubarb juices.
