Are you ready for warmer weather and a great season of grilling? I sure am! Start the season out right with this simple and healthy lemon-garlic shrimp kabobs recipe. It’s a quick and tasty meal any day of the week. I serve these lemon- garlic shrimp kabobs with grilled vegetables, rice or a fresh salad.
This spring salad with tuna and lemon vinaigrette makes a great lunch or light dinner. It is an easy and healthy meal high in protein, low in fat, and packed full of flavor. Tuna is one of my go to proteins when we need a fast and tasty meal. I always choose a solid white albacore tuna packed in water for the most flavor and texture for my salads.
The lemon vinaigrette for this salad is super easy and it’s fresh lemony flavors pair perfectly with the fresh spring vegetables and tuna.
This light and fluffy coconut cake was devoured at our last Easter party. It’s flavored with just a hint of coconut and lemon, which makes for a light, slightly sweet cake. It’s especially delicious when topped off with a dreamy white cloud frosting.
Gluten-free cakes can be delicious and incredibly light and airy in texture. Achieving this with coconut flour however, can be a little challenging. Coconut flour is very dense and slightly sweet.

Mmmn, this is one of my favorite cake frostings. White, billowy, cloud-like deliciousness. Who wouldn’t love biting into a piece of heaven? White cloud frosting is versatile and scrumptious on vanilla cake, chocolate cake and more. I especially love it on this slightly sweet gluten-free coconut flour cake.
This healthy salad features delicious ingredients Washington is well known for. Lettuce and kale are combined with dried cherries, almond slices, red onion and Gorgonzola cheese. It’s all married together with a zesty sesame ginger vinaigrette made with balsamic vinegar.
Combine the salad with some grilled chicken or shrimp and it makes a full meal. This recipe is enough salad for four side dishes or two large salads. Washington state is home to the beautiful Cascade mountain range. We’re fortunate that within about an hour and a half drive, we can be in a mountain playground offering skiing, hiking, camping and biking activities (just to name a few). Washington is also well known for it’s cherries and pears. Dried cherries are great in salads. They are slightly sweet-tart. I’d describe them as a little sweeter in flavor than Craisins, but similar. I used a Bosch pear, but Anjou would be great too. [Read more…]
