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.

25 Spring Salad Recipes

In the collage above, on the left, top to bottom: Sugar Snap Pea and Fennel Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette from Gourmande in the Kitchen, Blood Orange, Butter Lettuce, Radicchio, and Endive Salad with Fennel and Tangelos from Karen’s Kitchen Stories, and Lentil Salad with Herbed Goat Cheese and Balsamic Vinaigrette from An Edible Mosaic; on the right, top to bottom: Detox Kale Salad from The Healthy Maven, Strawberry Black Bean Salad from An Edible Mosaic, and Mandarin Salad from Shugary Sweets.

Living in Kuwait with weather that’s never really winter-like (at least not in the blizzard sense that I’m used to), it’s easy to overlook spring’s arrival. But I know it has been an insanely cold and snowy winter back home and for so many of you, the advent of spring is a much welcome change (or at least hope for change, if it still has not stopped snowing!).

5-Minute Healthy Chocolate Mug Cake {Paleo}

Like I mentioned here, I’m kind-of particular about my cake. (As Mike likes to tell me, I’m kind-of particular about a lot of food-related stuff, but that remains to be proven and is an entirely different discussion for another day.)

Anyway. I don’t think there is anything more disappointing than seeing an absolutely stunning cake and then sinking your teeth into what you think will be pure bliss, and realizing that it tastes like rubbery-textured cardboard.

Such a bummer. (more…)

Right before New Year’s, I shared a post with photos of a few recipes that I made, but never blogged for various reasons. In that post was a picture of Creamed Cabbage; the picture itself was not my favorite, but the dish was fantastic. It’s one of those things you can eat every day for a week, and when it’s gone, still wish you had made a bigger batch.

I don’t blame you for bombarding me via email for the recipe. (more…)

Do you have a birthday buddy?

I do; actually, I have a few. (Give me a shout out if your birthday is also September 30th!)

But I was an adult when I first met I someone with the same birthday as mine. (Which is pretty sad, right? That would have been so much fun as a kid!) (more…)

Gluten-Free Cranberry-Orange-Pecan Cornbread Muffins

For me, this fall has been all about cranberries.

And I’m completely shocked to say that even my seasonal favs like apple and pumpkin have taken the backseat to cranberry this fall. (How did that happen?!)

I think I’m finally giving cranberry the spotlight it deserves. (And shame on me for not doing it sooner! But I did share some pretty fabulous Cranberry-Flax Cookies and some lovely Dark Chocolate-Coated Cranberry Cake Bites.)

Gingerbread Muffins

The other day in conversation someone happened to mention gingerbread. I don’t remember how it came up, and it was just mentioned in a fleetingly brief moment. I’m sure no one else gave it another thought, but, me being me, suddenly I couldn’t get it out of my head.

I was in desperate need of a gingerbread fix. (more…)
