Spring Sandwich {with clementine & sprouts}

Everyone’s favorite deviled egg, chocolate egg, and egg hunt holiday is upon us! As Jesus enjoyed family, friends, and food, so shall we in honor of his resurrection!

This sandwich clearly has no eggs in it but it would be a great brunch or lunch option for Easter Sunday. It’s light, fresh, and filling. Perfect for the grazing type of day.

Chris and I had a progressive dinner on Sunday because of all my recipe testing, this one included. By the time 8pm rolled around we had grazed our way through the day and barely had room for a real dinner.

I don’t think we’ve mentioned this quite yet but Chrissy and I, along with our better halves, are headed to Italy this summer for a friend’s wedding! The Amalfi Coast to be exact.

We couldn’t be more excited for the celebration with all our wonderful friends!  Enjoying endless amounts of gelato, cheese, and pasta is of course at the top of our to do list as well.

We have yet to book a single place to stay and we leave at the end of June. This could be an issue but…when in Rome.

Pepita Crusted Tilapia & Tomatillo Sauce {with Cilantro Smashed Potatoes}

Pepita Crusted Tilapia with Cilantro Potatoes_LYK5

These cilantro smashed potatoes were a complete accident but now happen to be a new favorite dish. They are like mashed taters but not super rich and creamy, but super flavorful with a kick of spice so they pair perfectly with this lightly breaded fish.

You could certainly serve this Tilapia with a side of roasted veggies, if you are trying to eat a lighter meal, but you’ll be missing out on all the fun!

If you are hosting a dinner party or trying to impress with your fine cooking skills, without all the labor and tough steps, this is a good way to go about getting that meal to the table.

Simply Carnitas {tacos 2-ways}

by Lauren

These carnitas have been a long-time coming. Chris asks for them every time I ask what he wants for dinner. Had I realized how simple they were I would’ve appeased him long ago!

Not only are these a one-pot wonder – you just need a couple of hours around the house to watch them – but they also have so few ingredients! It’s also an extremely inexpensive meat to buy. I call that a win-win-win.

Add another win on there because they can be enjoyed for dinner and then they just keep giving with the leftovers. We made the most fantastic breakfast tacos the next day. I drizzled some of the residual slaw dressing over the top with a sprinkling of fresh cilantro. Perfection.

Almond Joy Protein Bars {No-Bake!}

by Chrissy
Almond Joy Protein Bars_LYK2

These days, I need all the little on-the-go snacks I can get my hands on. I’ve been working like a mad woman, running around like crazy trying to finish out the transition from my old job to the new gig, of owning my own business.

In short, these little protein bars are the perfect energy source to keep me going.

I don’t know about you, but the chocolate, coconut, & almond combo is one that I can’t resist. Just writing that out made me wish I hadn’t just polished them off today…
