It’s Friday!

Hallelujah.  We made it through the week!

I have survived a chicken pox scare.  Flu recovery.  A seriously crazy encounter with a seriously crazy (road raging) parking lot person.  3 blog posts (2 recipes), and a very productive week at my day job.

I am tired, ready to put my feet up, and enjoy a nice pizza muffin.  Followed by handfuls of chocolate eggs, and maybe a glass of wine!  That’s how we roll around here ;)

LEMON & COCONUT ANGEL FOOD CAKE DONUTS

Light and airy angel food cake donuts are flavored with lemon, and topped with toasted coconut.  They are the perfect way to celebrate spring, and make adorable Easter ‘donut nests’.

What are your Easter traditions?  I can’t say I’ve had any traditions for a long time now, not since I was a little kid.

Unless you count eating chocolate eggs straight from the bag…that’s definitely a tradition I uphold each year ;)

Now that we have a kid of our own, Ben and I get to decide what kind of Easter traditions we will have!  We’re going to go ultra-simple this year: find the egg.  I have a feeling Kai is going to love this game!  We have some plastic, and some chocolate eggs…and yes, mom has already gotten into the chocolate eggs.  Guilty as charged!

And I made angel food cake donuts…similar to these angel food cupcakes I made last spring.  I’m thinking one of our new traditions should be angel food cake.

After trying one-pot pasta for the first time very recently, I was completely blown away by how much flavor you can get from cooking the pasta in the sauce!  And having only one pot to wash up made it even better!  I can’t wait to come up with some more one-pot meals, but for now, I’ve rounded up 19 delicious-looking (and healthy!) dinners that can be prepared using only one pot, pan, or skillet!

CHICKEN AND AVOCADO CAPRESE QUESADILLAS

A fun and unique twist on a quesadilla: tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, avocado and chicken are fried up, then drizzled with an amazing balsamic reduction!

Life has been going at a very fast pace lately…because I swear just yesterday it was January…and now it’s mid-March!

This week I was side-tracked from my breakneck pace to a complete standstill thanks to a very bad case of the flu.

So in the fog of post-flu recovery, today’s post is going to be very short and sweet!
