With Mother's Day coming up this weekend, it felt like the perfect time to share my Mom's famous kale salad recipe. My mom has always been the queen of effortlessly throwing together a quick and healthy meal. She never really measures and just adds a little bit of this and a little bit of that and whatever she's making always manages to turn out so fresh and delicious. I learned how to cook just by watching her do her thing in the kitchen, and her easy, breezy, no-fuss style of cooking has always been a huge inspiration for Weeknight Bite (thanks, Mom!). When we cook together, it's a time for us to relax, chat, gossip, and laugh, and I love that shooting this recipe together really captured the two of us in our element!
If you only have 15 minutes to throw together a weeknight dinner, then you've got more than enough time to whip up these Sheet-Pan Shrimp Fajitas, my friends. This recipe really couldn't be easier - you just toss sliced bell peppers and onions on a sheet pan with some shrimp, drizzle with avocado oil, season with taco seasoning, and throw it all in the oven for 8 minutes or so. Easy as could be! Then you'll serve it with some charred tortillas, your favorite salsa or guac, and you'll be so pumped about your delicious fajita night that just happened to come together in a matter of minutes. Oh and if you line your sheet pan with parchment paper, then clean-up will be a total breeze, too, and you can spend the rest of your night binge-watching Game of Thrones or doing something much more fun than dish duty!
Passover is just a couple days away, which means it's the start of seven full days without any leavened bread products. That means no bread, no traditional baked goods, no pasta, no crackers, no cereal... you get the idea. This is symbolic of when the Jews escaped Egypt and didn't have time to let the bread rise before racing out of there... hence why we skip leavened bread and why matzah is everyone's go-to over Passover! But honestly, matzah just isn't my thing... especially when there are so many more delicious things that we can eat during Passover! With all of the incredible paleo desserts out there that are already grain-free, it's pretty easy to find Passover-friendly recipes. Here are 5 of my all-time favorites to keep your sweet tooth satisfied during Passover (and honestly, all year round!).
I mean... couldn't you just dive right into those melty pools of chocolate? I seriously can't get enough of these Paleo Blondies - they taste so decadent, you'd never know they were grain-free and refined-sugar free. I originally shared this recipe almost exactly 5 years ago... my friend Loren from Sweet Loren’s was in town for Expo West, and she stopped by to catch up and bake this insanely delicious recipe so I could share it right here with all my fellow dessert lovers! Since this is one of my favorite dessert recipes, I felt like it was time to give the photos a makeover to really do the recipe justice. So here we are with a fresh new look, but the same delicious recipe! (And if you want a peek at what the old photos looked like... scroll down to the bottom - we've come a long way my friends! I can't bear to get rid of my old videos either, so that's here to stay, too!)
I'm all about a giant entrée salad that's loaded with all the goods and can easily serve as a filling and satisfying meal on it's own. No wimpy salads around here, thank you! This Niçoise-ish Salad has got it all - tons of veggies, protein, healthy fats, lots of texture (I love a refreshing crunch in my salads), and obviously loads of flavor! If you're wondering why it's a Niçoise-"ish" salad... well I figured I'd skip the potatoes to keep it a little lighter, swap the usual niçoise olives for castelvetrano (Mitch's fave!), and add some avocado (because who can possibly make a salad without it)! The combo of ingredients is pretty amazing together and let's not forget the lemon dijon dressing! It's super easy to whip up and is a great homemade staple to pair with any salad, but it goes especially well with everything that's packed into this mega Niçoise!
