These are a delicious cookie to eat any time of the year:  Crispy Molasses Cookies

Crispy Molasses Cookies
Molasses cookies probably make you think of the holidays, right?  So why am I writing about Christmas cookies in April??  Well, there’s simply no reason why you can only make molasses cookies during the holidays.  They’re just as good in April as they are in December :)  So here’s a molasses cookie recipe of the crispy variety.  It’s my favorite crispy cookie to dunk in my morning cappuccino!  And I’m totally comfortable with springtime molasses cookie dunking, for sure.

Seafood Chowder

This soup reminds me of summering on the East Coast beaches: Seafood Chowder

Seafood Chowder

Every summer, I spend a good chunk of time in a beach area south of Boston with my family.  I love it.  I look forward to it every year from the day we leave until the day we are able to return!  One of the things I love most is that we can pick up amazing, fresh seafood every single day.  This is the perfect soup to make if you have access to a great, fresh seafood medley.  I live in Nevada now… and there isn’t any fresh seafood in sight.  So for this recipe I opted to use a bag of mixed seafood from my favorite overnight Seafood delivery company:  Anderson Seafoods.  It had shrimp, calamari, scallops and cod.  It’s a perfect option for this soup!

Roasted Pork Protein Bowls with Rosemary Vinaigrette

Here’s a new idea for a meal that we enjoyed immensely:  Roasted Pork Protein Bowls with Rosemary Vinaigrette

Roasted Pork Protein Bowl with Rosemary Vinaigrette

My husband was just commenting recently that he has not experienced a great main dish salad for quite some time.  He lamented that they’re always the same old thing… nothing new… and nothing very filling or exciting.  I told him I was prepared to serve up a new kind of “salad bowl” that I thought he’d really enjoy.  This one would be loaded with protein: roasted pork, hard-boiled eggs, garbanzo beans, and quinoa, and I’d tuck as many vegetables in there that I could.  I’d drizzle a simple rosemary vinaigrette on top, and call it dinner!  It would also be a filling and healthy option for lunch.

Greek Spinach Pie

Here’s a dinner recipe that I absolutely LOVE:  Greek Spinach Pie

Greek Spinach Pie Recipe from RecipeGirl.com

I’ve always, always been drawn to Greek food of every kind.  I love lemon.  I love spinach.  I love feta cheese.  I love dill.  And I adore lamb!  So if you were taking me on a hot date and you took me to a Greek restaurant, I guess you could say I’d be pretty happy.  (I’m married though… so that hot date would have to be with my hot husband).  This Greek Spinach Pie recipe is a homemade version of the traditional spanakopita with a couple of twists.  This version utilizes three cheeses:  feta, ricotta and jack.  There is dill.  There is sauteed onion.  This pie makes a great dinner item (my family loves it so I’m going to call it family-friendly!)  It’s especially awesome served with Greek Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup!
