It's about that time of year where carrots are one of the first vegetables to make an appearance in the big garden show of spring.  So I'm excited to share this super Easy Carrot Ginger Soup.   You'll love how easy it is, the creamy texture and the wonderful flavors.  The fresh ginger pairs perfectly with the carrots and is also vegetarian.  I'm sure Bugs Bunny wouldn't mind having his carrots being used for this spring time soup :)

I'm pulling an oldie but goodie out of the vault today to share just in time for Cinco de Mayo or any time you need a quick appetizer.  These Shrimp Cocktail Shooters are so easy to prepare and make a disappearing act as soon as they are put out!  I first made these for my daughter's bridal shower five years ago.  Well, I actually think one of my good friends made them for me but I know I provided the recipe :)  And while you can certainly just have a bowl of the cocktail sauce with the shrimp served around it, I think these little cups provide an elegant look.  So would you like one shot or two?

How does a healthy smoothie bowl sound to start your day off?  Full of fresh ingredients and a great way to get most of your daily fruit servings in one dish!  If you've said yes, then this Strawberry Banana Smoothie Bowl is for you.  I'm probably a bit late to the smoothie bowl craze.  I've seen them around forever but just now jumping on the bandwagon and wondering why I waited so long.  I love smoothies and I love fruit so combining the two together makes a lot of sense!  They are tasty, filling and good for you.  You don't want to mess up the important meal of the day :)

Mexican Quinoa Skillet Dinner

Apparently it is Mexican week on the blog!  Today's Mexican Quinoa Skillet Dinner was inspired by the leftovers I had from Tuesday's Mexican Quinoa Salad.  I enjoy meals like this where I can buy some ingredients and then reuse them in the week for another meal - less waste and I guess a bit less creativity on my end - but hey, it works for me and I ended up with two fantastic dishes!  Fresh and flavorful is the name of the game with these veggies and healthy ingredients.  And you know what else is great?  Inviting a good friend to come over for lunch and not having them mind that we must first do a photo shoot!  Now that is friend indeed!
