Summer Pasta with Shrimp

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Ronzoni, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #RonzoniSummer  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Summer is here with the hot temperatures and long days. On summer nights, I want quick and easy recipes that my family will love. But, I don’t want to sacrifice their well rounded meals either. So, I turn to options like pasta dishes that cook quickly but also incorporate vegetables too. This summer pasta with shrimp is the perfect quick summer night meal that also has plenty of vegetables even though they might not be so obvious {i.e. this kids will still actually eat it}!

Roasted Vegetable Galette

Mathlete and I have been planning out some future vacations recently and decided that one way we can more easily save for the trips is by reducing how much we eat out. But, I love going out for brunch on the weekends and seriously missed the idea of the delicious brunch dishes that we normally get. Instead of giving in, I decided to bring brunch to the house and made a roasted vegetable galette instead.

Primal Mini Pizzas

I love pizza. In fact, my whole family are huge pizza fans. We all like different toppings on our pizza but we can always agree that pizza would make a perfect dinner. I like to make mini pizzas because it allows everyone to customize their toppings and get just the right amount to eat. Since I have started focusing on a mostly Paleo diet, I don’t usually eat the pizza on pizza night. But, on our last one, I decided to make primal mini pizzas so I could have some pizza too.

It is travel season! Summer always brings vacations, road trips to visit family or even just traveling to the local amusement park. One thing I have learned from our travels, is that road trip snacks are a total must. It doesn’t matter if we are driving, flying or taking the train, I always make sure I pack TONS of snacks to keep everyone from getting a little hangry while we are on the road. Today, I am sharing with you my three favorite road trip snacks that never leave my travel bag these days!

Cheesy Kale One Pot Pasta

I am so excited to share this super cheesy recipe with you today. While this post was sponsored by Sargento® Shredded Cheese, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Life is crazy around here. Can you tell considering it the evening and you are getting a post from me instead of my normal 7am posting?! With school out and activities and camps starting, our schedule is kind of hectic as we try to settle into a good rhythm. That means dinner needs to be quick and easy to make sure it actually gets made versus a take out order placed. Oh, and I don’t want a lot of dishes to clean up either. I’m not asking too much, right?! This cheesy kale one pot pasta fits all those requirements!

Cinnamon Muesli Muffins

I am an eggs and bacon person when it comes to breakfast. Mathlete, he loves muffins and pastries. So, I try to make sure I keep some on hand for him so he can grab one on his way of the door to work or while we are having breakfast on the weekend. He is a huge granola and muesli fan so I work those into the muffins when I can. That is how these cinnamon muesli muffins were born.

Chipotle Chicken with Avocado Salsa

Mondays during the summertime are always a little tougher. We spend a ton of time outdoors enjoying the pool or just hanging with friends so it is always a little harder to get back into the grind of the office. Of course, it doesn’t help when I also have wine slushies around the house either. So, in addition to resetting myself back into work mode, I also try to reset my body back in better eating mode. In our house, we do paleo meals Monday through Friday and then allow ourselves to indulge on the weekends. To me, it really is the best of both worlds. I don’t have to give up my cocktails and nachos, but I still give my body really good, real food for most of the week. This week, chipotle chicken with avocado salsa is on my menu.

Braised Pork Sandwich with Jicama Kale Slaw

I am excited to work with Williams-Sonoma to bring you this recipe. As always, while this post is sponsored, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Father’s Day is in just a few weeks. I’ve been trying to decide what to do for Mathlete {besides sending him off flying for the day} and I instantly thought of a picnic. We did one at a local winery for Mother’s Day and it was great. One of our wineries has also opened a brewery on the property and I know Mathlete would love checking out some of the beers they offer. Of course, if we are going on a picnic, we are going to need food to take. I wanted to skip our regular choices {like balsamic chicken sandwiches} and I saw some braising sauces made with craft beers at a recent shopping trip and instantly knew I wanted to make a braised pork sandwich with jicama kale slaw.

Paleo Sausage and Peppers

Ok, you guys…I am about to give you the easiest and most delicious weeknight meal you can make. A bonus: it is paleo too {if you care about that kind of thing}! Seriously, I make this on Sundays and then I grab a little for breakfast with a poached egg or Mathlete will have it for dinner with rice {yes, we still keep rice in our mostly paleo kitchen} when I am gone. I can’t tell you much we love our paleo sausage and vegetables!

Happy National Cheese Day! In honor of one of the best days of the year, I wanted to share with you one of our favorite burgers.
