Carrot Cake Dip

I can’t get over the fact that Easter is just over a week away! I am hosting Easter brunch at our house this year so I definitely need to get my butt in gear when it comes to planning a menu. At least I know I have a good resource for Easter recipes to turn to but I am still thinking of different dessert options. I don’t love the time it takes to bake so I am leaning towards something much easier like this three ingredient carrot cake dip.

Paleo Sloppy Joes

Mathlete loves sloppy joes. Besides the one time I made them with turkey instead of beef, I don’t think I have ever gone wrong making sloppy joes for him. Of course, I am trying to stick to more paleo dishes so I needed to find a way to bridge the gap between Mathlete’s favorite and something I could eat. The result are these amazing paleo sloppy joes.

We had our first warm day this past weekend and it was glorious. While still jacket weather because of a light breeze, it was a great reminder that Spring and Summer are on their way and we have lots of sunshine to look forward to. Of course, thoughts of summer got me in the mood for some ice cream. I couldn’t convince Mathlete to go out for ice cream because “it is still March” so I decided to break out my recipe for the easiest no churn ice cream ever!

Mini Shepherd’s Pie Bites

Who here loves shepherd’s pie? It isn’t one of those dishes that ranks up there in the favorite foods list like pizza or pasta but it is still so delicious. I love it during winter months when it is cold outside and you want something filling. I was dreaming up ideas for a St. Patrick’s Day party recently and decided that mini shepherd’s pie bites would make the perfect, one-bite treat.

Snacks. They are totally my weakness. I am almost always on the go so snacks tend to become my meals and meals never actually happen. I always look for snacks that are easy to carry along with me and taste great. If they have a little crunch and sweetness to them, like this triple berry granola, then the snack is a total winner.
