Paleo Chicken Piccata - chicken thighs with a delicious lemon and caper sauce, served over spaghetti squash. You're going to love this healthier version of the classic!

This Paleo Chicken Piccata recipe was originally published on Food Fanatic which is why I’m talking about spring like it’s not the middle of April. This recipe is a year round favorite though so add it to your dinner rotation soon!

We are all ready for spring now, right?

I’m so done with the heavy stews and slow cooker meals, and I’m ready for light and fresh. Chicken piccata is one of my favorite spring time meals – it just screams spring.

Fresh lemon juice and so much green on top? Definitely the kind of meal to transition to spring with.

This paleo version is so close to the original. The only thing you really have to remove is the butter and wine.

So, coconut oil instead of the butter – and if you enjoy ghee in your diet, I highly recommend using that, but the coconut oil is just as delicious. In place of the wine, I used full fat coconut milk which also adds a little richness and creaminess that you may miss since you’re skipping the butter.

Make sure you get a canned coconut milk that’s only ingredients are coconut milk, water, and guar gum.

And it will probably be separated when you open it, so I usually just quickly throw it in the blender to get everything combined.

Pork Spring Roll Bowl - everything you love about spring rolls in a bowl! Rice noodles in a spicy peanut sauce, with thinly sliced pork, cucumber, carrots, avocado, fresh herbs, and chopped peanuts on top!

Before we moved, I had this routine when my kids were with their dad for the weekend. And by routine, I mean I didn’t leave my house. I would marathon whatever season of American Horror Story fit my mood and I’d order pho every day the kids were gone. And my favorite pho place back in our old city had the best pork spring rolls. It was super thinly sliced, super flavorful pork rolled up with all the veggies and served with a peanut dipped sauce.

And now I live 45 minutes from them and they won’t bring me spring rolls.

So I’ve started making my own pork spring rolls and when I’m too lazy to actually roll them, I’ll do this Pork Spring Roll Bowl.

It’s everything I love about those spring rolls: rice noodles tossed with a light and spicy peanut sauce, thinly sliced carrots and cucumber, fresh cilantro and mint, chopped peanuts, and the pork, of course.

Strawberry Upside Down Ricotta Cake – delicious moist ricotta cake with juicy strawberries on top! The perfect spring and summer dessert!

Hi guys!

Okay, I know I said we were doing pizza every Sunday for the entire year but I’m tired of pizza. Pizza’s a lot of work. Also? I get a lot of unsubscribers every time I post a pizza recipe.

I mean, y’all could’ve told me you were sick of pizza.

So. We’re having cake today.

I’m still going to use my Sunday post to share random photos from my week and talk about what I’m reading, watching, and loving. But we’re gonna take a break from pizza for awhile.

I’ve tested this cake recipe twice in the last couple weeks and both times, it’s disappeared from my kitchen within hours. You’re definitely going to want to make this one now that the strawberries are starting to look good.

You don’t have to miss out on your favorite childhood breakfast just because you’re paleo! Paleo Eggs in a Basket is made with spaghetti squash instead of the hashbrowns and you may love it even more than the original!

I’m doing that thing where I find a way to put spaghetti squash into every meal again.

I go through such weird stages with spaghetti squash. I haven’t cooked one in months but now it’s all I can think about and I’m roasting several a week.

I think I’ve had it in every single meal I’ve had for the last week.

These Paleo Eggs in a Nest are my current favorite way to have it and I wish I could say I’m only having it once a day at breakfast time but there have been days when I’ve made it 3 times. It’s becoming a problem.

It’s just so easy and so fast and so good for you!

Bacon Spinach Feta Chicken - low carb and keto recipe! Crispy chicken thighs in a delicious feta sauce with bacon and spinach! 30 minute meal, perfect for weeknights!

I’m going to start this post by saying that my 6 and 8 year olds ate zucchini noodles for the first time because of this chicken.

Like, pulled it out of the fridge and asked if they could have it. For their after bath, pre-bedtime snack.

Yeah.

That sauce will change your life. Or at least change your opinion of zucchini noodles.

I mean, it’s got butter, heavy cream, and two kinds of cheeses so how can it not be delicious?!
