From a totally un-boring Thai-inspired salad to the cutest mini dessert we've ever seen, April was a pretty killer month in PureWow Recipes land. Here, a few that we can't wait to make again. (Seriously, the cheesecake is happening this weekend.)

This cheesecake is super delicious and completely foolproof, perfect for the culinarily challenged among us.

We got out of a salad rut by swapping boring mixed greens for crunchy chopped vegetables and adding a savory peanut dressing that we'd be happy to eat by the spoonful. 

This delightfully springy pasta comes together in one pot in just 30 minutes. All the more time to savor it alfresco. 

The only thing better than carrot cake layered with perfectly rich cream cheese frosting? Mini carrot cakes layered with perfectly rich cream cheese frosting.

Finally overcome your fear of frying with these flavor-packed shoestring french fries. They're so skinny, you need just a fraction of the oil to get 'em crispy.
