Sam's Famous Carrot Cake
I baked this last year for Easter and was totally blown away by the amazing taste (moist) and flavorful cake! I'm not a big cake lover, however, carrot cake is an exception. I kept talking about it and handed out the recipe more than once. My kids LOVED it after their Easter dinner. I frosted it with the Cream Cheese Frosting II recipe from this site. Only change I made was leaving out the coconut... not a fan. Planning on making this again for the Easter feast as it was requested!

Chicken with Quinoa and Veggies
I made this using shrimp instead of chicken, but simply because I wanted to add seafood to our weekly menu. I made very little changes to this recipe. I added yellow summer squash along with the zucchini. Next time I may add mushrooms or even broccoli too. I used green onions instead of garlic scapes and added 2 T. minced garlic. While zucchini and yellow squash were cooking, I added fresh ground pepper and a pinch of sea salt. Squeezed a half of lime for its juice towards the end as I added fresh basil and tossed with Feta cheese. This recipe was fresh tasting and filing.... plus ultra healthy. I generally use all organic ingredients, but that is a personal choice. Will make this again soon!
