Welcome to April, everyone. This means it’s spring, right? No matter what?

Apparently with Easter this weekend, and stores full of sugar, I’m thinking primarily of baked goods. Like these strawberry pop tarts. I admit that neither Denise nor I have quite figured out gluten-free pie crust, but maybe this would be a good starting point.

And if you want something thematic but maybe with vitamins, how about Carrot Cake Pancakes? As usual, Cara of Fork and Beans has a bunch of adorable holiday-themed recipes, but this one I might actually make because it sounds excellent and not too complicated.

Here’s a nice side dish you could use for the holidays, the Kitchn’s Ginger Butternut Squash & Sweet Potato. I’d have to make very few changes, and I think the ginger would make a nice change from standard holiday fare.  And since you’ll need some ginger peeled, here’s a great tip for peeling it. I’ve been using this method since I’ve heard about it, and it’s the best method I’ve tried. 

Have a great week everyone!
