If you love crab cakes you’ll love tuna cakes as well. They’re incredibly flavorful, can be eaten on their own or you can turn them into tuna sliders with avocado and pico de gallo. These sliders are made using Blue Harbor Wild Albacore tuna. They’re fresh, simple and perfect to enjoy all spring and summer long.

This is sponsored post brought to you by Blue Harbor. Opinions are my own.

I am a seafood lover through and through. While I absolutely love crab cakes, they can be expensive. I have something equally as delicious and a whole lot more budget friendly. Tuna cakes (or patties for those of you just can’t get past calling it a cake, I get it). It starts with quality tuna.

Blue Harbor Fish Co. Have you heard of this company? I hope so but if you haven’t, here are a few reasons I was impressed with them:

  • Their tuna is wild, line-caught premium quality fish that offers a delicious, mild, clean flavor.
  • Blue Harbor is MSC Certified, which means it complies with sustainable practices and ensures each fish is traceable back to the boat.
  • It’s soy Free, Gluten Free and Dolphin safe.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Hillshire Brands Company.  The opinions and text are all mine.

I’m so excited for this warmer weather and the chance to be outside more. In my opinion, winter overstayed it’s welcome and I’m ecstatic to be finally able to ditch my basement treadmill and take my workout outdoors. I head to the local park most mornings to put in my miles.

Meandering through the trails, little hills and workout equipment that’s peppered throughout I work up quite the appetite. When I get back home my normal routine is to make a large skillet of cheesy scrambled eggs (3-4 eggs worth), ham and spinach. Not going to lie, I’m usually hangry at this point and having to cook it then isn’t optimal. What’s a girl to do?

Turn your post workout meal into a grab and go bite that’s what.

It’s spring-ish y’all! I’m excited to plant my summer garden soon. I’m actually a little behind my normal planting schedule because of this crazy weather that can’t seem to make up it’s mind. I plant a decent amount of herbs and vegetables but I always seem to have an over abundance of zucchini and crooked neck squash from my garden bounty. I’m ALWAYS looking for ways to use them because it pains me to let anything go to waste. I can already tell, this zucchini noodle salad with tomatoes is going to be making an appearance and often.

This quick and easy zucchini noodle salad is perfect for a light lunch, dinner or even as a side dish to take to pot-lucks and picnics. Did I mention that there’s NO cooking required?

Mar 27, 18 Orecchiette Pasta with Peas and Parmesan

Orecchiette Pasta with Peas and Parmesan. This is a simple vegetarian pasta that’s perfect for spring. It’s made using orecchiette pasta (little ears) and combines peas and parmesan with an olive oil drizzle. Simple yet satisfying.

This post was sponsored by Le Sueur Peas as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own 

I honestly haven’t met a pasta shape that I wouldn’t devour, but if you asked me to narrow it down, one of my all time favorites would be orecchiette. Orecchiette is Italian for little ears. Which makes sense once you look at them. They’re perfect little scoops of pasta that are begging to be filled with ingredients like PEAS.

Not just any peas, Le Sueur® Very Young Small Sweet Peas. I have been eating these peas, you know the ones in the iconic silver labeled can, my entire life. It’s a brand that has been around for more than 100 years and are known for their premium breed of petite, sweet peas. They’re so delicate that the only way to maintain their exquisite tenderness from farm to table is in a Le Sueur can.

Easter is right around the corner. I can hardly believe that we’re just a few short weeks away. This year is flying by. I have to admit, I’m just in the beginning stages of planning what my menu will be. Face palm. Every year I say I’m going to be better about menu planning and every year here I am.

What I do know for sure is that I’ll be focusing the majority of my time cooking the meal itself so having a delicious and convenient treat already prepared for dessert is such a weight off my butcher block so to speak.
