You had me at spinach and mushroom! This pasta looks cheesy and amazing.
There can never be too much pasta in my life, and this Cooking for Twosday pasta bake is no exception. It can be made almost entirely in the skillet, and has a creamy, alfredo-like sauce that is rich in cheese, flavor, and veggies. I’m a huge Giada fan, and this pasta bake was adapted from her...

Smart idea! 
If you're craving dessert, but don't want leftovers, try this recipe for berry compote for two. It's perfect over ice cream and pie!

Love the combination of maple and walnut in these thick bars! Yum!
Easy one bowl Maple walnut bars. Maple syrup and walnuts kick these blondies up a few notches.

This #flatbread  looks phenomenal! 
Growing up in North Jersey, deli sandwiches were a thing. They were a huge thing. Not only was there a deli at almost every corner, the line was out the door at almost all the time but especially as lunch time. The meat on the deli sandwiches were piled high... #favoriteflatbreads #flatbreadrecipes

If this can give me a bikini body, I'm in! ;) Recipe from +Toni Dash. 
This delicious smoothie is packed with ingredients that all help lose water weight and flush toxins safely from the body. It's a great partner to body goals to get ready for swim suit season!Prepare all the ingredients as appropriate for your personal blender (e.g. cutting to a size that will work best). If preferred, add ice to chill and thicken the smoothie.
