Join the Love & Lemons Cooking Club Challenge this month! It’s easy to enter, and one lucky winner will receive a prize. Find all the details below.





Our Cooking Club is a fun way to celebrate the Love & Lemons community of readers. The concept is super simple—every month, I choose a recipe. You make it, and you email me a photo. At the end of the month, I randomly select one winner to receive a prize.

I love the sense of community that comes from so many people cooking one recipe every month. We’re kicking off our May challenge today with our pasta primavera recipe, and I hope you’ll join in the fun. Here’s how it works:

Join the Love & Lemons Cooking Club

At the end of the month, I’ll randomly select a winner and post all of the photos. This time, we’re giving away a $200 Whole Foods Gift Cards.


Primavera pasta


This simple pasta is one of my favorite recipes to make in May. It’s brimming with the spring and early summer produce that has just started to appear at the farmers market—asparagus, peas, cherry tomatoes, and squash—and it has a flourish of fresh herbs on top. You can make the whole thing in right around 30 minutes, so it’s perfect for those spring nights when you’d rather be outside than in the kitchen. I think you’ll love it!

To make this vegan recipe, skip the cheese. Before serving, top it with a drizzle of olive oil and a generous sprinkle of my vegan Parmesan.

To make it gluten-freesub your favorite gluten-free pasta.

Last Month’s Recipe

Instead of cooking from the blog last month, we made a recipe from Simple Feel Good Food! It was the Lentil Salad with Green Tahini, which is topped with colorful spring veggies and a creamy herb-flecked dressing.

My favorite thing about this recipe is that you can change up the dressing depending on what herbs you have on hand. It was so fun to hear what combinations you used! Thank you for celebrating the launch of the new book with me.

Here are all your photos:















And congratulations to our winners Sharece and Molly!
