Easter is a time of celebration, family and food. This dish is one of my family’s favorite Easter traditions. The recipe has been handed down from generation to generation and each family member has added his or her own special touches. This is my mom’s version, which is the best. Of course, I might be a little biased. Buon appetito!

With another mild winter behind us, the possibilities of another early and productive fishing season seems to be already taking place. Add in the shortage of any significant rainfall here or to the south, and we’ve got a situation where our area of the St. Johns River is looking very much like areas on the other side of downtown Jacksonville.

As I write (in early March) winter has still not arrived. The closer we get to our traditional last frost date — about mid-March — it is predicted to be less and less likely that we shall see cold temperatures and we could therefore see the early emergence of insect pests (see http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/vh036). Keep a close eye on those young vegetable plants. On the plus side, beneficial insects, such as the lady beetles, should also be more abundant (see http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/in327).
