With the weather here finally getting warmer I am ready to move away from “comfort food” and on to fresh, warm-weather meals. Spring is the perfect time to start thinking about easy, lighter dinner ideas. I am always on the lookout for some new {easy!} recipes to try, so today I thought I would share some  of our past favorites to inspire your spring menus.



Asian Chicken Salad is one of my favorite recipes–ANYTIME–but as the weather gets warmer I am not going to lie, I dream of eating it again poolside…soon, very soon, right? This recipe is fresh, light and easy. You can eat it alone or in a wrap, but either way it’s a great warm-weather dish, you can find the recipe HERE.


pesto MARKED

I already started a basil plant in a sunny window and can’t wait to get a crop going for this year. Pesto is one of my most favorite things ever, but only the freshly made kind, I have yet to find a store-bought version that compares. It’s healthy, fresh and delicious over pasta, bread {or on spaghetti squash if you want to be healthy} just top it with some good-quality grated parmesan cheese and your life will never be the same, I promise. It is also very easy to make, you can find my recipe HERE.

If you are hosting a summer gathering or just dinner for friends, a Taco Salad buffet/bar is a great way to please everyone. It’s a quick, fix-in-advance, type buffet dinner and it’s perfect for both kids and adults alike. See how Christy serves them HERE.
