Easter Bunny Pudding Cups


It’s Food n Flix time and this month, is Peter Rabbit hosted by Literature and Limes.



When this movie came out in 2018...actually scratch that, when it started streaming in 2019, my kids were obsessed with this movie and watched it over and over again.  They still like to rehash their favorite parts to me occasionally!


So can I confess that I didn’t actually rewatch the movie this time around?  I feel like I have a really good handle on it!

Blacked Steak Caesar Salad



I’m a big fan of salads.   I even find myself ordering dinner salads at restaurants!  This one is an at home version of a favorite of mine from a local restaurant.


It’s a favorite because it’s fresh, healthy, and there is a ton of flavor!  The best part is that this dinner salad appeals to the men in my family...because...steak.

Pasta Caruso


Oh boy.

This month’s Eat the World was an adventure for me.


Originally, I was going to make Pasta Caruso but decided not to (yes, really).  I had found a kinda funky recipe originally that included pureeing ham into the sauce and it weirded me out.


Then I was kinda stuck.

Greek Quinoa Pita Pockets


Today’s recipe is a bit of a departure from my usuals - a meatless meal!


This year, during Lent, I didn’t do as much experimenting with meatless meals as I’ve done in the past.  That’s because both of my boys and Hubs spoke up and requested some tried and true favorites as we went through Lent!


Some favorites we enjoyed included Copycat Campbell's Tomato Soup, Creamy Mac & Cheese, Alfredo Noodles (without the chicken), Cheddar Broccoli Soup, and Shoup Noodles!


It was really refreshing to have suggestions, which made for way fewer complaints!

Chef Salad



Happy Easter!  Alleluia!  He is Risen!


It is always such a joyful day!

Today’s Sunday Funday is celebrating too.  Only we’re thinking ahead to those Easter leftovers!

In my house, there is always an abundance of ham and hard boiled eggs leftover.  The ham is no big deal.  In fact, my family loves ham so much that they’ll just eat the leftover and get sad if I horde some back for a recipes like Scalloped Potatoes & Ham or Ham & Bean Soup.

The eggs on the other hand…

We go strong for a little while and then the enthusiasm for eggs quickly fades.

Luckily for me, I love a loaded main dish lunch salad and that’s how I plan to repurpose those leftovers this year!

This chef salad is loaded with all sorts of great protein sources that just happen to be Easter leftovers too!

Enjoy these other recipes that use of those leftovers!
