My family always cooks a ham at Easter, and we always have lots of leftovers. This Ham Tetrazzini at Beyond the Chicken Coop is a yummy way to use it up — and I love that you can prep it ahead of time and just pop it in the oven at dinner for an easy meal after a busy weekend of cooking.
If you’re like me, you’re going to be wanting something light and meat-free now that the weather’s warmer, and this Easy Moroccan Chickpeas & Rice at Rise, Shine, Cook is a great, quick meal with tons of flavor. And l appreciate that Ashley gives a few other ways to use the chickpeas if you happen to have any leftover.
I’ll plan to fix a big salad and grill up some of this Pan-seared Salmon with Chimichurri at The Rising Spoon for dinner. My husband (a strict vegan) will want me to use these same seasonings on tofu or tempeh on the grill for him, and two of my kids will prefer chicken. But that’s what’s so great about this recipe–it works for everyone.
Raid your produce section for a big bowl of this Spring Pasta Primavera at Life Made Sweeter. You can serve it with or without chicken mixed in, of course. This is a dinner that always makes me feel happy during spring.
My family loves eating Mexican food, but I get tired of the same-old taco night once a week. This Beef Burrito Skillet at Aimee Mars is a great option to switch it up sometimes. If you’re trying to avoid beef, then try some of the “beef-less” crumbles in the frozen section at your grocery. I swear, you won’t be able to tell a difference in a casserole-type dish like this.
If you’re trying to get that Easter candy used up and out of the house quick, then make up a batch of these Easter Candy Blondies at Homemade Interest. They look even better than the original candy to me.
