Happy Spring! This beautiful weather in Texas is giving new life to our little family, and we are spending hours and hours outside enjoying it! I have to soak it up as much as possible before the sweltering temps take over, ha! I have been asked on Instagram for some go-to recipes for the Spring, so I thought I'd share a few favorites here with you!
All of these recipes would also be great for the summer months. A lot of the produce in the spring and summer overlap, but for a full list, check out our Seasonal Meal Planners!
Honey Roasted Whole Carrots from The Speckled Palete
With simple ingredients...these look divine. I'm a big fan of throwing a meat and veggie on a sheet pan and baking it for a simple dinner option. I bet you could marinade or glaze some chicken thighs with the same sauce as these carrots have and it would make a super yummy meal!
Berry Acai Bowl from My Cooking Spot
Oh my gosh does this look delicious? Just the ingredients list makes me hungry for one! Perfect refreshing snack for the Spring.
Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Sandwiches with Mustard Coleslaw from The Speckled Palate
Oh my gosh this is so yummy...this went on my slow cooker night rotation as soon as I saw it. I already have most of these ingredients in my pantry/fridge and I bet you do too! I love to grab a bag of pre-made cabbage and carrot coleslaw and then make THIS RECIPE later in the week with it!
Spanish Quinoa Stuffed Peppers from The Minimalist Baker
These are super easy to make and actually very filling even without any meat! Definitely a budget-friendly meal. I actually make 8 pepper halves and the stuffing makes enough to fill them all up! Perfect for leftovers for my husbands lunch and sometimes my breakfast ;)
Sheet Pan Shrimp Boil from Damn Delicious
Um yes, this is damn delicious ;) Haha! Though this does take a few extra steps in the kitchen (simply boiling the potatoes and corn for about 20 minutes first) it's not that big of a deal and the flavor of the spices + shrimp + sausage make everything worth it.
