I love Spring… it just feels like a new opportunity to get into warm weather party mode.

In honor of the year turning toward the warmer months, I’ve compiled a few Pinterest Boards of spring holiday decorating and menu ideas for Passover, Equinox, and Easter festivities, or that will work for a festive brunch, intimate wedding, baby shower, tea, or bridal shower.
I’ve also included a few of my own ideas and recipes too!
In the slimming-down spirit of Spring, I’ve been experimenting with a sort of Paleo-Meets-Atkins food regimen recently.
I can say that, while this gal loves her gluten free pizza, bread, cereal, and pasta, and I will never forsake these completely, the lower-carb diet is making me feel great! So I’m going to be sharing some high in protein recipes with you over the next few months.
Here’s my go-to breakfast for when I’m sick of scrambled or poached eggs. It bakes up quickly, and I can eat it for a few days. Enjoy!
Gluten-Free Crustless Quiche
It’s the Holiday season, and life has been pretty hectic with a cross-country move into a somewhat nomadic lifestyle of freelance and contract work for me and Husband. Currently, we’re stationed in Atlanta in my parents’ winter home, which they generously loaned us through the season.
During the Holidays, my family and circle of friends celebrates Hanukkah, Christmas, New Year’s, and The Russian New Year. Add in dietary restrictions, and there’s a lot of room for experimenting with traditional recipes! I made these gluten-free latkes for my husband and sister the other day for an intimate brunch. It was my first time making them and I’m really pleased with how they turned out.
Let your Awesome Weekend Begin!
Our Multi-Holiday Holiday weekend was lovely, enjoyable and low-key.
On Christmas eve, we ate:
Christmas eve: Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! And yams, and stuffing, and spiced rum cider, with sisters and friends dropping by.
