THE RECIPES
Feedfeed Spring Bacon and Asparagus Mac & Cheese 
Our classic Mac & Cheese all dressed up for spring.  This would also make a great side for Easter brunch! Cook all of the bacon and crumble. Reserve half for your chicken salad later in the week.

Feedfeed Tip When making mac and cheese, also be sure to cook your pasta al dente. It bakes for at least another 30 minutes in the oven, so you don't want it to get mushy and over cooked.
Golden Coconut Curry with Shrimp and Veggies  by @forevermunchies

This tasty curry comes together in less than 30 minutes. Serve it over steamed rice for a complete meal.

Feedfeed Tip When buying fresh shrimp, be sure to give them a sniff! They should smell sweet and fresh, not like ammonia. Also, if they are spotted black, pass! That is a sign of oxidation, and that they are passed their prime.
 
 
Lemon Thyme Baked Salmon by @whatshouldimakefor
If you think you can't cook fish, this recipe is for you.  It's truly as easy as it gets. Since salmon is quite oily, be sure to turn on your kitchen vent and crack a window as the cast iron skillet may smoke a bit in the high heat of the oven. We suggest serving this salmon with oven roasted sweet potatoes, like this recipe here.  Double up on the potatoes so you can use the leftover for brunch this weekend.
