I know that April is half over now, but I've just looked through one of my old Cooking Light cookbooks for the April recipes. So many sound so good. I wonder what I'll actually get to. Here're the ones I'm seriously thinking about making. Any suggestions on which I should definitely get to?

* parmesan-crusted chicken with leeks and apples
* creamy parmesan pasta with turkey meatballs
* sour cream-lemon pound cake
* brown sugar pound cake
* cornmeal pound cake (it was a pound cake section...I'm not sure if I like pound cake, but it sounds good)
* rice-and-spinach gratin with dill
* creamy rice with asparagus
* zesty cheese ravioli
* tabbouleh with arugula and chicken
* applesauce, bran, and oatmeal muffins
* vegetable donburi over steamed rice
* risotto with asparagus, fennel and leeks (I've never made risotto and the process is intimidating to me)
* fresh strawberry pie (I had some awesome strawberry-rhubarb pie once in Bishop at Jack's Restaurant and Bakery)

Okay, now I'm hungry for something homecooked and delicious. Mmm.

The first two definitely sound the best to me. Oh, and the risotto was a hit at my house. I say try it some day. It wasn't nearly as difficult as I thought it would be.

So many of those sound so good! My top want to tries from that list are creamy parmesan pasta with turkey meatballs, creamy rice with asparagus, and tabbouleh with arugula and chicken (even though I don't know what tabbouleh is). The other ones sound good but I must admit, I'm not a huge fan of leeks or fennel so the risotto doesn't sound so good to me. But my mom made a mushroom risotto that was SO GOOD I'll have to see if I can get the recipe. It was her first time making risotto and she said it wasn't hard, just time consuming. I hope you try some of these and let us know how they are.
