I hope you all had a wonderful & festive St. Patrick’s Day. We opted for our usual Friday night dinner of pizza, but on Saturday, I made Corned Beef and Cabbage in the slow cooker (for the first time – we’ve never made it or tried it before) and it was a huge hit! Since I had never made it before, I didn’t want to experiment with making my own recipe, so I used Foodie Crush’s recipe and it was perfect! I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to try it for the first time. I made my corned beef in the slow cooker, but there are also instructions for making it in the instant pot for anyone who is interested.
Also, happy first day of spring, everyone! We got our first 60 degree day over the weekend and it was glorious! Josh and I noticed that several of our neighbor’s fruit trees (plum and apple) are beginning to blossom. After a long, cold, weary winter…those petals are such a welcome sight. Are you excited about spring? I’ll rephrase…how excited are you for spring?!
Here’s what’s on the menu this week!
Baked Parmesan Rosemary Chicken Thighs with Honey Mustard Sauce
This recipe for crispy baked parmesan rosemary chicken thighs finishes off with a sweet and tangy homemade honey mustard sauce!
These tasty chickpea tostadas aren't just easy to make and ready in 30 minutes, they're also vegetarian and pretty dang healthy!

Craving a fried egg sandwich with a bigger flavor profile? Let this bacon, balsamic, and arugula fried egg sandwich come to your rescue!
3 Ingredient Roast
Fancy roasts in Dutch ovens served with wine and music by candlelight are great...but sometimes you just need to get a decent meal on the table! This 3 ingredient roast is that meal, and this busy mom loves it!
This easy recipe for a quick baked spaghetti is perfect for a family meal at home, or better yet, bringing a meal to someone who needs one!
These rustic mashed potatoes are super easy to put together, but have a creaminess and richness to them that makes them surprisingly craveable for such a staple side dish!
Sunday Morning Smoothie
One of our favorite smoothie standbys, what we call the Sunday Morning Smoothie - orange, banana, ginger, mango, pineapple, spinach, coconut, and more!
Tres Leches Cake
This Tres Leches cake, while perfect for Cinco de Mayo (or just because), is one of those cakes that is easy to make and can also easily be made several days in advance. In fact, making it one day in advance even makes the cake taste better!
Our forecast is still predicting plenty of rain this week, so for now I remain in the mood for warm and comforting meals, like soup and chili. Check out my Pinterest board on Soups and Chili for some yummy dinner ideas this week!
We’ll be back later this week with some recipe posts for ya! Have a great week everyone!
