SHRIMP TACOS are what's for dinner tonight! โ € โ € These perfectly seasoned shrimp are sautรฉed and then served with a bright, fresh lime cabbage slaw and a spicy yogurt sauce for drizzling - or dunking. I don't judge.โ € (I improvised and made mine into a bowl with cauliflower rice, spinach and pick de gallo tonight - see my stories. Gobbled it up!) โ € Make them for #tacoTuesday or for #cincodemayo next weekend!โ € โ € Grab the recipe from my link in profile.โ € Recipe: https://www.familyfoodonthetable.com/shrimp-tacos-lime-cabbage-slaw-spicy-yogurt-sauce/โ € โ € XO,โ € Kathrynโ € .โ € .โ € .โ € #familyfoodonthetable โ € #shrimptacos #tacobar #tacotime #tacolove #tacolovers #tacotuesday๐ŸŒฎ #tacoseveryday #tacos๐ŸŒฎ #taconight #healthyish #healthyfoodie #easydinner #familydinnernight #dinnertimefun #tuesdaydinner #f52grams #buzzfeedfood #huffposttaste #seafoodlovers #cookinglight #yahoofood #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #foodwinewomen #TODAYfood #BHGfood #thekitchn #forkfeed

If you like to meal prep, this BBQ CHICKEN QUINOA SALAD is a great one to add to your rotation!โ € โ € It's super quick + easy (so you can have some free time this weekend too) and you'll be thanking yourself all week for some amazing lunches! โค๏ธโ € โ € Cook your quinoa, mix your chicken in the BBQ sauce, prep the veggies and then layer them all in your lunch containers and add the dressing the day of. Lunch heaven! ๐Ÿ˜โ € โ € Psst... If you are VEGETARIAN, you can skip the chicken and add in some black or pinto beans or swap in tofu (I sear it in the pan and then toss it with the BBQ sauce - so yummy!)โ € โ € Full recipe is in my link in profile. ๐Ÿ‘โ € https://www.familyfoodonthetable.com/bbq-chicken-quinoa-salad-bowls/โ € โ € Oh, and if you do meal prep on a regular basis, I'd LOVE to hear what you make -- I'm always trying to do more of that to stay ahead.

You know what your brunch spread needs? Besides mimosas? And maybe bloody Mary's for variety? ๐Ÿ˜œโ € โ € It needs some HOMEMADE VEGGIE CREAM CHEESE. ๐Ÿ™ŒSeriously, this stuff takes just a few minutes to put together and it has such a great fresh taste, is super creamy and just the right amount of savory. ๐Ÿ‘Œโ € โ € (SO much better than what you can buy at the store!)โ € โ € Also, I share ALL the ways you can use this, beyond just bagels. โ € โ € For instance, it's fabulous on a turkey sandwich or wrap or with tomato slices for a tomato sandwich. Or pair it with smoked salmon and some crostini or baguette slices for a fancy little appetizer.โ € โ € I also like to stir some into my scrambled eggs, when they're just about set, for a creamy, savory twist. Mmmm...โ € โ € And for the kids, make cracker stacks with this cream cheese and some lunch meat ๐Ÿ‘โ € โ € See, you DO need this in your life.โ € โ € Check out the recipe from my link in profile and here:โ € https://www.familyfoodonthetable.com/homemade-veggie-cream-cheese/โ € โ € XO,โ € Kathrynโ € .โ € .โ € .โ € #familyfoodonthetable โ € #creamcheese #veggielife #veggiefood #veggielovers #breakfastclub #breakfastlover #morningvibes #breakfastinspiration #breakfastideas #breakfasttable #morningtime #riseandshineโ˜€๏ธ #goodmorningโ˜€๏ธ #breakfasteats #brunchtime #morningeats #brunchgoals #cltfood #f52grams #buzzfeedfood #huffposttaste #cookinglight #yahoofood #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #foodwinewomen #TODAYfood #BHGfood #thekitchn #forkfeed

Have you tried FARRO yet?!โ € โ € It's one of my very favorite grains! It's got a really chewy texture, a slightly nutty taste and it's super easy to make. (OK, I cheat a little and use the 10-minute bags from @traderjoeslist - can't beat that!)โ € โ € And it goes well in grain bowls, salads, soups and more. Super versatile! ๐Ÿ™Œโ € โ € This Fast Farro + Veggie Salad was one of my earliest farro recipes on the blog and it's still a favorite. Super quick, super easy and super flavorful.โ € โ € Yup, I haven't changed much. ๐Ÿ˜‰โ € โ € Snag the recipe from my clickable link in profile and give it a try!โ € Recipe: https://www.familyfoodonthetable.com/fast-farro-salad-with-veggies/โ € โ € Do you have a favorite grain?

{New} To be honest, I'm not a super duper huge pasta person. I have certain dishes I adore and certain ones I crave (hello, spaghetti and mac & cheese) but otherwise, I don't get that excited about pasta or even make it all that frequently.โ € (Or maybe I am because I have another pasta recipe coming Monday that Iโ€™m ridiculously excited to share with you!) โ € Regardless, this Creamy Pesto Pasta with Spring Veggies is always on the menu come spring. It's a great way to get my (whole wheat) pasta fix and keep things pretty light -- so I can highlight all those fresh flavors I adore. ๐Ÿ’šโ € โ € It's also a one-pot pasta, which I also adore. #easyrecipes are my jam ๐Ÿ™Œโ € โ € Snag the recipe from my link in profile or use this link:โ € https://www.familyfoodonthetable.com/creamy-pesto-pasta-spring-vegetables/โ € โ € Would love to hear your favorite pasta dish - let me know!โ € โ € XO,โ € Kathrynโ € .โ € .โ € .โ € #familyfoodonthetable โ € #pastalover #pastas #noodles #pastalovers #pastanight #pastadinner #pastatime #carbup #carblover #springveggies #asparagus #peas #clteats #cltblogger #homecooking #cookit #f52grams #buzzfeedfood #huffposttaste #tastespotting #cookinglight #yahoofood #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #foodwinewomen #TODAYfood #BHGfood #thekitchn #forkfeed

Today was a whirlwind and it's not done yet. ๐Ÿ’จโ € โ € I took J to school while on deadline for my day job this morning because my husband went to watch a seminar at M's school this morning. Then M had a half-day so she was home with me this afternoon (as is J, as his preschool finishes at 1) - made work this afternoon a little interesting. By which I mean, twice as hard. ๐Ÿ˜ฉโ € โ € Then we whisked off to swim lessons, rushed home for a super-fast dinner for the kids and I headed right back out to go to a sip-and-see for my friend who just had her second baby boy. ๐Ÿ’–โ € โ € (I'm SO excited to meet this little nugget as she went into labor with him at one of our monthly girls' night dinners and we all took her to the hospital and walked the halls with her to help her progress, until they admitted her. So he feels like all of ours even more so than normal. ๐Ÿ’™)โ € โ € I'm going to hit the bed HARD when I get home tonight! ๐Ÿ˜ดโ € โ € Anyway, this gorgeous dish is Asparagus Almondine and it's one of my springtime favorites! It's really simple and fast to make but always comes off impressive ๐Ÿ‘Œ โ € โ € It's one of the many ways I try to overdose on asparagus in springtime ๐Ÿ’šโ € โ € Get the recipe from my link in profile!โ € Recipe: https://www.familyfoodonthetable.com/asparagus-almondine/โ € โ € Enjoy!โ € XO,โ € Kathrynโ € .โ € .โ € .โ € #familyfoodonthetable โ € #asparagusseason #asparagus #almonds #springtime๐ŸŒธ #springseason #springveggies #healthyeating #eathealthy #eatclean #cleaneatingrecipe #healthyfoods #food4thought #youarewhatyoueat #healthyish #healthyfoodie #eathealthyfood #clteats #f52grams #buzzfeedfood #huffposttaste #tastespotting #cookinglight #yahoofood #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #foodwinewomen #TODAYfood #BHGfood #thekitchn #forkfeed

{New video!} Pretty much, I was making these Healthy Chocolate Chip Muffins for probably the 97th time and I thought I'd film it for you.โ € โ € So, it's not really the best quality, not my usual video style, but it was kinda fun to mix it up! This is the teaser version so if you want to see the whole thing, head over to the blog and have a watch. ๐ŸŽฅโ € โ € And while you're there, take note of this recipe because it's seriously one of my VERY favorites! โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโ € โ € I've been making these muffins for years - well before we had kids that will happily eat pretty much anything in muffin form - because they're so stinking good.โ € โ € They're also 100% whole grain, low in sugar and can be made dairy-free. (I did them that way when my daughter was young and had a cow's milk allergy.)โ € โ € They're also soft, fluffy and completely loaded with melty chocolate chips. DELICIOUSNESS! ๐Ÿ˜โ € โ € I make these all the time to take to friends after they have a baby. Because you can eat them ANYTIME of day - breakfast, snack, lunch, late-night - and you know how it is as a new mom and you're up around the clock and sometimes you just need to reach for something yummy with the one semi-free hand you have. ๐Ÿ˜ฌโ € โ € Check my link in profile for the full recipe and bake up a batch SOON!โ € https://www.familyfoodonthetable.com/healthy-chocolate-chip-muffinsโ € โ € Speaking of... I may make these again tomorrow. We're going to a "sip and see" for a friend to finally meet her new baby boy. I think she might like some muffins ๐Ÿ’•โ € โ € XO,โ € Kathrynโ € .โ € .โ € .โ € #familyfoodonthetableโ € #chocolatechipmuffins #chocolatechips #chocolatelover #chocolatelove #chocolateaddict #chocolateday #chocolateforbreakfast #muffinlove #clteats #cltblogger #easyrecipe #bakingproject #bakingfun #kidssnacks #lunchboxes #healthysnack #snacking #f52grams #buzzfeedfood #huffposttaste #tastespotting #cookinglight #yahoofood #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #foodwinewomen #TODAYfood #BHGfood #thekitchn #forkfeed

{New!} So... I may be a little obsessed with this salad. As in, can't stop eating it. Can't get enough of it. Not willing to share it. โ € โ € All mine all the time. ๐Ÿ™Œโ € โ € The bright fresh flavors, the chewy farro, the sweet strawberries, the creamy goat cheese... it's magical my friends. And a must try!โ € โ € Recipe is available from my link in profile.โ € https://www.familyfoodonthetable.com/farro-kale-strawberry-salad-goat-cheese/โ € โ € Here's to a happy, healthy week!โ € XO,โ € Kathrynโ € .โ € .โ € .โ € #familyfoodonthetable โ € #kalesalad #saladbowl #saladlover #saladlove #saladbar #healthysalad #saladlunch #saladdays #saladtime #lunchtimefun #lunchtime๐Ÿด #lunching #healthylunch #healthylunchideas #clteats #ncblogger #f52grams #buzzfeedfood #huffposttaste #tastespotting #cookinglight #yahoofood #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #foodwinewomen #TODAYfood #BHGfood #thekitchn #forkfeed

Plan to make this One-Pot Broccoli Cheese Brown Rice this week -- It's so easy and everyone loves it - picky eaters included! ๐Ÿ™Œโ € โ € The weekend is winding down and I'm planning to stretch out in front of the TV tonight, relax a bit and sort through our Disney photos to find the ones I want to order. Tons of great moments and memories captured ๐Ÿ˜Šโ € โ € By the way - do you still print photos?โ € โ € I find that I look at them more when I do, versus letting them just get buried in my phone after a while. Plus we have frames up around the house and photos on our fridge that I like to refresh from time to time. (I.e. when I realize they are a year old ๐Ÿ˜‚)โ € โ € Anyway, you can brab the full recipe for this cheesy broccoli rice from my link in profile and here:โ € https://www.familyfoodonthetable.com/one-pot-broccoli-cheese-brown-rice/โ € โ € Have a great week!โ € XO,โ € Kathrynโ € .โ € .โ € .โ € #familydinnernight #dinnerinspiration #dinnerideas #familydinnertime #familyfood #dinnertonight #healthykids #healthykidsfood #kidsfood #happykids #kideats #pickyeaters #homecooking #cookingathome #cookingmama #cookhealthy #healthycooking #clteats #ncblogger #f52grams #buzzfeedfood #huffposttaste #cookinglight #yahoofood #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #foodwinewomen #TODAYfood #BHGfood #thekitchn #forkfeed

So, whoops - while I was on spring break at Disney and the beach, I forgot to share my new post last week. ๐Ÿ˜ฌโ € โ € And it's totally share-worthy. And maybe it's good that I waited because this would be perfect for a really nice dinner over the weekend. ๐Ÿด๐Ÿทโ € โ € These STUFFED CHICKEN BREASTS are full of salty prosciutto, melty mozzarella cheese and fresh chopped spinach.โ € โ € They are sprinkled with paprika and Parmesan for a flavorful, crisp topping that will have you swooning! ๐Ÿ˜โ € โ € My aunt (who I borrow a lot of recipes from) already made this and said it was fantastic - yay! That's high praise from her โค๏ธโ € โ € I hope you'll give it a try too!โ € You can find the recipe from my link in profile.โ € https://www.familyfoodonthetable.com/chicken-breasts-stuffed-prosciutto-spinach-mozzarella/โ € โ € XO,โ € Kathrynโ € .โ € .โ € .โ € #familyfoodonthetableโ € #stuffedchicken #chickendinner #winnerwinnerchickendinner #dinnerparty #familydinnernight #dinnertimefun #dinnerinspiration #dinnerideas #familydinnertime #dinnerisserved #familyfood #dinnertonight #clteats #yummyyummy #ncblogger #deliciousfoods #f52grams #buzzfeedfood #huffposttaste #tastespotting #cookinglight #yahoofood #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #foodwinewomen #TODAYfood #BHGfood #thekitchn #forkfeed

Waffles are a near weekly occurrence at our house.โ € โ € Pretty much always on the weekends because I'm already up and working when the kids get up in the morning and I don't got time for that!โ € โ € But come weekends... yes, we make the kids sleep in and yes, they still have to wait very long minutes for me to get up and then even longer minutes for me to make waffles...โ € โ € But somehow it's all OK. Cause waffles are on their way.โ € โ € And if I was smart, I would always make a double batch.โ € โ € My recipes make 6 really large waffles. That's 2 for my daughter, 2 for my son (no matter they are only 6 and 4) and two for my husband. โ € โ € Correct, waffles are gone and I get none. (It's kind-of OK, I don't need to feast on waffles.)โ € โ € But no leftovers for the week. Which is a shame because they reheat SO well in the toaster.โ € โ € So maybe this weekend I'll learn my lesson and make extra. Maybe even enough for me to snag one!โ € โ € Happy weekend, my friends! Let me know what you've saved for the weekend to indulge in, kick back and enjoy, or just try for the first time. I'd love to hear!โ € โ € XO,โ € Kathrynโ € โ € P.S.
