Find the shopping list…all ready to print and bring to the market … at the bottom of the page!

LAMB SLIDERS WITH HERBED YOGURT SAUCE

Have I mentioned that these lamb sliders are my daughter Rosie’s favorite dinner? They’re petite, flavor-packed lamb patties served on lettuce wraps in lieu of buns. You can swap some of the lamb and pork in the recipe for turkey if you prefer and it will still be plenty tasty. Side dishes? I’d do up some little roasted potatoes or another favorite roasted vegetable to dunk in the extra yogurt sauce on your plate.

SPRING VEGETABLE FLATBREAD PIZZA

I’m crazy about this bright, fresh spring pizza made on store-bought lavash bread. It’s fairly light, portion-wise, so feel free to double the recipe. You may have leftovers, which isn’t a bad thing, particularly since it’s a good one to pack for school or work lunches.

INSTANT POT ITALIAN WHITE BEAN SOUP

An Instant Pot soup that’s been a consistent hit on the blog. For a vegetarian version, simply leave out the sausage or swap in a cup or two of cooked grains or pasta for added heft once the soup is done.

SO SIMPLE DEVILED EGGS

Once you’ve got the eggs cooked, you can knock this recipe out in a matter of minutes. It’s a good one for any leftover Easter eggs you might have on hand. Enjoy as a snack or to pair with a lunch salad.

CHOCOLATE-COVERED STRAWBERRIES

Set this recipe aside in the event that there is a surplus of chocolate bunnies on hand. My kids love the ritual of unwrapping the leftover bits, melting them down, and dunking in spring’s first strawberries.
