Seasonal Sunday (03-20-11)

Happy Seasonal Sunday!

This week I'm keeping it short and sweet. I made 800 mini desserts in the last 24 hours- for the "Be Free Wellness Event" that I hosted this evening. What a wonderful night it was- a great turnout, great music, amazing food all around. ..BUT I must tell you that I'm Exhausted. Exhausted in the best way possible- but I'm afraid thinking straight to write anything lengthy or typing up a recipe without error is completely impossible at the moment :)

Next week I will feature 2 Bloggers- as well as spend some time updating and increasing my spring seasonal ingredient list. For this week since we are right on the line I welcome you to include recipes from both the Winter and Spring list (see below)

Today I'm going to share an older recipe - one of the first that I ever added to this site. We enjoy this easy soup often.

Curried Carrot and Squash Lentil Soup

Now its your turn..

  2. You may link up old or new recipes. Wonderful food is always worth sharing! Feel free to share up to 6 recipes each week.
  3. Gluten Free Recipes are NOT required- this event is meant to inspire ideas for all. However I do ask that if your recipe is Gluten Free that you give it the “GF” Label.
  4. Please include a link in your blog in reference to Seasonal Sundays so that your readers may also participate.

Look forward to all of your recipes! They really are the highlight of my every week!

This week I will be sharing my new recipe for Key Lime Pie Cupcakes with Coconut Butter-cream Frosting. and.. I have been working on making my basic white cake recipe vegan! All of this will show up at some point this week. :)

Happy Sunday Friends!

    Empanadas are a new family favorite and we are sure to be eating them through the Spring and into the Summer .. varying the fillings to fit the changing seasons.

    Joyous Spring!
