Recipe Recap: April

One of the greatest joys in my life is trying out new recipes. In fact, there are very few repeats in our house. No matter how much I love certain recipes, I am always on the lookout for something new to try.

So instead of the regular Friday Favorites, I decided to mix it up a little and share a recap of this month’s favorite recipes.

Easy Healthy RecipesOur guidelines for recipes are pretty much anything that is quick and healthy. So all of these recipes should fall into those categories. Hopefully these will help you in your meal planning for next week, bon appetit!

One Sheet Pan Parmesan Crusted Salmon with Roasted Broccoli from Cooking Classy

I am a sucker for any “one pan” or “one dish” meal. I loved the parmesan crust on the salmon and baked broccoli is always a favorite over here.

Southwest Chicken Chop Salad  from Lauren’s Latest

I love anything southwestern. I lightened this one up with greek yogurt instead of mayo/sour cream and left out the tortilla chips.

I confessed about my obsession with mason jar salads here. So I decided to do a little experiment and see if this recipe would work with that technique- and it did! Something about all the flavors marinating together in the jar made it even more scrumptious the next day. I just layered the contents in the jar in this order: dressing, corn, black beans, veggies with lettuce last. My only regret is that I only made two for the week.

Zoodle Pasta with Veggie Maranara and Bacon from Fit Foodie Finds

Hands down the best zoodle (zucchini + noodle) recipe I have tried. We don’t have a spiralizer so I just use a julienne peeler and it works the same.

Greek Lamb Tray Bake by BBC Good Food

This one is actually a regular in our rotation. Mostly because we love lamb but also because it is another beloved “one dish” meal. If you aren’t a lamb fan I am sure it would be just as good with ground turkey or chicken.

The last two recipes I shared last week– but obviously they are winners so I wanted to add the links again…

Warm Quinoa Salad with Halloumi 

Panko Crusted Honey Mustard Salmon
