Cara Di Falco’s Favorite Spring Recipes

Cara Di Falco of Cara’s Cucina joined Lisa Marie Latino in the #HipNJ studio to talk all things Spring food!

Di Falco states that brunch becomes very popular this time of year. “With the weather getting nicer, people want to have that kind of social gathering,” she says. So, she gives us some delicious recipes for you to make at your next brunch party.

The first recipe is for Irish Soda Bread. “I have been told by viewers of Cara’s Cucina that this is the best Irish Soda Bread recipe they have ever had.” Check out the recipe here.

“The next thing that I always recommend for brunch is a Frittata.” Complete with arugula, fresh tomatoes and onion, this dish is super healthy and super delicious. Check out the recipe here.

The final recipe Di Falco brought along is a Shrimp Salad. This recipe incorporates delicious Italian flavors without the breading and pasta, keeping it fresh and light. Check out the recipe here.
