Strawberry Fruit Dressing and Dip

The weather is warming up nicely, and when it’s warm outside, I tend to eat more fruit because it’s so refreshing. And when you serve fruit with a dressing or dip, it makes a great warm-weather snack or dessert! This Strawberry Fruit Dressing and Dip is big on strawberry flavor and really good served with strawberries or a mix of fresh fruit chunks—pineapples, sliced bananas, apple wedges…whatever fruit you like!

Corn and Blueberry Salad

Sometimes you come across a recipe that sounds so different, you just have to try it! I love all the ingredients in this Corn and Blueberry Salad, but I never would have thought of putting them together myself! What a brilliant idea this salad is…a sweet and savory mix of lots of yummy, healthy ingredients. The sweetness of the corn complements the blueberries…and the red onion, jalapeno, and cilantro give this salad a nice savory punch. And I have to mention the cucumbers, too, that give this salad and side dish a great crunchiness!

Book Review: Where’s My Easter Basket?

I received a review copy of this book; all opinions expressed are mine.

If you’re wanting to add a fun gift to a little one’s Easter basket, the board book Where’s My Easter Basket? (Worthy Kids) by Bob Holt would be a great addition! It’s a fun, colorful, sturdy book that’s perfect for preschoolers and it’s filled with cute characters and colorful springtime scenes!

The story is about a little bluebird who is looking for an Easter basket…but he’s not sure what an Easter basket is, exactly. As he starts hunting for it, he meets and gets help from a little chick, some jelly beans, a chocolate bunny, and a colorful Easter Egg, They finally cross paths with a basket and when they jump into it, they realize that THEY are the Easter basket!

Easter Egg Blondies

If you’re craving a sweet treat for Easter, I recommend these Easter Egg Blondies! They’re rich, buttery, chewy, and chocolaty squares of yumminess! They have chopped Cadbury Mini Eggs mixed into the batter and whole mini eggs scattered on top. If you’re not familiar with Cadbury mini eggs, they’re milk chocolate eggs with a thin and crispy candy shell coating and they really make these blondies look Eastery! 🙂

Roasted Veggie and Kale Salad

On a chilly day a few weeks ago, roasted veggies sounded really good to me! When I was buying the veggies, I also spotted a large bag of chopped kale that was reasonably priced, so I thought I’d make a Roasted Veggie and Kale Salad! It’s a great salad to make, not only on those chilly end-of-winter and early spring days, but all spring and summer long. It’s a wonderful way to use your garden veggies or veggies you buy from your local farmers’ market! If you don’t grow your own kale, I recommend using a bag of pre-chopped kale for this salad, just to save some time in your prep work.
