Hello & Happy Easter! Hope everyone enjoyed the holiday weekend & had a beautiful Easter Sunday filled with peace, love & joy surrounded by family, friends & anyone else who brings happiness to your life.
It couldn't have been a more gorgeous day here in CLT -- a prefect day to celebrate such a beautiful holiday. I enjoyed the morning with coffee, yummy banana-coconut gluten-free pancakes + a quick workout before it was time to hop in the shower to get ready for 1230 mass.
Afterwards, the day was simply spent enjoying time together, talking & laughing, eating my mom & dad's delicious Easter cooking, drinking good wine + a so-yum carrot cake for dessert!
The only thing missing was the love of my life, as he's still away traveling for work. I cannot wait till he gets home in a couple weeks!! eeeek!
Hope your day was wonderful & full of all things happy! xx

yummy spread of apps before Easter Dinner...
Quinoa Tabbouleh rather than the traditional Tabbouleh which is made with Bulgur Wheat and loaded with gluten. Quinoa is a gluten-free grain and Quinoa Tabbouleh is ahhhmazing! The rest is stuffed grape leaves, pita bread & crackers & chicken liver spread. If your thinking ewww, gross...its SO good! lol
We have lamb for Easter every year and I so look forward to it each year. My dad stuffs it with a gazillion cloves of garlic & leaves it to marinate for 3 days with olive oil, lemon, rosemary + other herbs & spices. It is so tender, juicy & yummy.
love this wine
pan fried cauliflower

so this Carrot Cake was super yum but this year my mom didn't bake it. She has been so busy with work and didn't have a chance to bake her amazing carrot cake. This one was great, but super sweet. It came from Publix but mom's is definitely better. I had 2 pieces. whoops!! I'll be running my ass off tomorrow. haha #balance ;)
