Pina Colada Chicken Recipe {Plus Paleo Eating and a Review of Melissa Joulwan’s Well Fed 2 Cookbook}

Pina Colada Chicken

I remember having a discussion with a friend a few years ago (before paleo was a household word) about the paleo way of eating. She was telling me about a friend of a friend who had converted three months ago and claimed to “feel great and be in the best shape of her life”.

Falafel-Spiced Roasted Chickpea Salad with Tahini Dressing

Falafel-Spiced Roasted Chickpea Salad with Tahini Dressing

Like spring cleaning for the house, I know quite a few people who do an annual detox every spring. I’ve done one for the past three years, usually around the beginning of April, but this year I’m a little late (yeah, oops). Being in Kuwait and having the weather already feel like the hottest part of summer back home, it just doesn’t feel like it’s time for a spring detox.

Falafel-Spiced Roasted Chickpeas

Falafel-Spiced Roasted Chickpeas

I remember the first time I bit into fresh falafel.

Mike and I were in Amman, Jordan on our honeymoon, out and about just strolling along arm-in-arm, the way you’d expect people on their honeymoon to do. We passed a guy frying up falafel on a street corner; simultaneously, Mike’s stomach growled and I inhaled deeply, asking what that amazing smell was.

You know we had to stop and get some.

Deluxe Cake Batter Fudge

Deluxe Cake Batter Fudge

I don’t know about you, but I’m a little hard-pressed to find a dessert that’s suitable for Easter outside of carrot cake, lemon bars, or orange chiffon cake. And of course all the cutesy little bunny and egg-topped cupcakes and cookies.

There’s nothing wrong with any of those things (in fact, I die over a good slice of carrot cake!), but I don’t know…I like to mix things up a little.

If you’re the same way, this fudge will definitely keep things interesting.

Cinnamon Bun Bread Pudding

Cinnamon Bun Bread PuddingCinnamon buns are right up there with bagels for me as far as favorite special occasion breakfasts go.

Bagels are a rare treat (made even rarer by the fact that in Kuwait it isn’t nearly as easy to find a decent quality bagel as it is in New York). But ironically (because there’s a Cinnabon that’s just a two-minute walk from where we live), cinnamon buns are an even more rare treat.

70 Recipes for a Beautiful Spring Supper

70 Recipes for a Beautiful Spring Supper

In the collage above, on the left, top to bottom: Roasted Boneless Leg of Lamb from An Edible Mosaic, Roasted Broccoli and Carrots with Crispy Quinoa, Goat Cheese, and Lemony Oregano Dressing from With Food + Love, Roasted Shabbat Chicken with Spring Vegetables from What Jew Wanna Eat, and Strawberry Tomato Bruschetta from Lemons for Lulu; on the right, top to bottom: Pan-Roasted Asparagus Almondine from Diethood, Millet Pilaf with Roasted Carrot and Fennel from An Edible Mosaic, and Pea and Herbed Goat Cheese Tart from Gourmande in the Kitchen.

Are you an elegant dinner party sort-of person, or more of a let’s-grab-sandwiches-from-the-local-café sort-of person? Or maybe both?

For family gatherings I like to keep it simple, but when friends are coming over, I’ve been known to go all out with something much more on the fancy side, Julia Child-style.

Dragon Fruit Shrub and a Game of Thrones Tribute

Dragon Fruit Shrub with Pomegranate Arils

I’m so excited, it’s a little scary.

And if you’re a Game of Thrones fan, I’m sure you’re just as through-the-roof thrilled as I am for Sunday night.

(If you’re not a fan, you might not find this post all that interesting, so I won’t take it personally if you just want to scroll down to the bottom and check out the fabulously delicious recipe that you definitely don’t have to be a Game of Thrones fan to enjoy. Or stay a while and read a little bit about the story; but I warn you, you will be intrigued if you do!)

Lentil Soup with Spinach and Mini Chicken Meatballs {Gluten-Free}

Lentil Soup with Spinach and Mini Chicken Meatballs

Sometimes spring is obvious (like when temps go from 35 degrees to 55 degrees overnight and melt three feet of snow), and sometimes it isn’t quite so obvious (like when temps raise just a degree or two over the span of an entire month).

And then there are times when spring needs a little coaxing…like when it snows two feet in the span of two days at the end of March/beginning of April.
