Here’s a gluten-free, dairy-free, easy spring pasta recipe that has asparagus, green peas, and shallots with seasoned chicken topped with fresh parsley, sliced scallions, and diced Roma tomato. 
If you are good with dairy, add your favorite cheese to finish. 
For the gluten-free pasta, my new go-to is chickpea pasta. I like it better than the rice- or corn-based option because of the taste, texture once cooked, and the high protein value with each serving.

Here’s how to make one of my favorite easy weeknight pasta recipes! 
• seasoned chicken (breast, thighs… doesn’t matter)
• fresh veggies like broccoli, peppers, tomatoes (zucchini, asparagus, leeks, fennel, eggplant — all great too!)
• shallots and garlic for flavor
• plenty of good olive oil and Romano or Parmesan cheeses
• fresh tortellini or ravioli (your choice: Paleo, gluten-free, regular… whatever you need, there’s an option for it nowadays)
Cook the chicken and veggies in one pan while the pasta boils in another.  Transfer the pasta directly from the pot to join the veggies and chicken (slice it into fork-ready pieces first) with a little bit of pasta water to help deglaze the pan, creating a light sauce in the process. 
Top with shredded cheeses, fresh parsley, and finely diced Roma tomatoes (seeds and pulp removed, so they’re not “slimy”).
It’s super fast, super delicious summertime pasta your family will love as much as we do!

Did you know that both coffee AND chocolate pair well with beef?  I had the idea to combine cocoa powder with leftover morning coffee one day to see how it would play out as a burger marinade… loved it! 
I also used some ancho chili powder in the spice blend. It adds a level of complexity and a touch of heat in the background. Not necessary, but pretty great to include if you have some in your spice collection.

A salad that can handle warm summer days! 
• chopped kale
• lemon juice
• extra virgin olive oil
• salt + pepper 
Use your hand to massage this into the kale leaves; it’ll soften the kale and make it more pleasant to eat raw. 
• finely diced red onion
• garbanzo beans (I like to roast mine before adding to the salad, but totally optional)
Are you good with dairy? Toss in some feta.
Have leftover chicken? You know it’ll be perfect in here!
This salad is flexible, simple, and tastes a little too good for how easy it is to make.

We played around with this Alabama White Sauce idea last night… I’ll say this, if you don’t like mayonnaise then this isn’t for you. However, if you’re slightly obsessed with it (like we are) then get ready for a friggin amazing way to sauce a smoked chicken 🤯
We found the recipe from @meatchurch >> https://youtu.be/bofoCq2tvE8

Potatoes. Sausage. Eggs. Aioli. 💛
Aioli? Mayo, fresh garlic, pinch of sea salt, squeeze of lemon juice (and maybe a bit of zest, if you like a brighter aioli too)
Bravas sauce? Smoked hot paprika, sweet paprika, olive oil, flour, chicken stock, pinch of salt. 
Now if I could just find some Sangria, I might be able to forget that tomorrow is Monday.

Pot Sticker Meatballs are the easy solution to grain-free dumplings 🥟 (no need to fuss with making your own wrappers!)
Here’s why I think you’ll like this recipe:
Unlike many other recipes under the same title, mine leverages the classic technique of chopping prawns into pork. The texture of the meatball resembles the texture of the filling for a traditional pot sticker. This makes it juicy and with a light mouthfeel instead of a dry or dense meatball.

I’m a cookbook junkie and prefer to cook out of them vs using websites (the irony of which is not lost on me), but I needed a better way to flag recipes I was interested in and find them faster when it came time to meal plan or actually make the recipe. 
I started using this method of listing the recipes on a big post-it note and sticking it to the cover. It’s way easier to find what I’m looking for… 
This has been a big time saver for me and I hope this helps you too!
