Hello May! Check out this collection of light and delectable recipes for the first week of the month. 

Start your Monday off right with this delicious Greek Orzo Pasta Salad, which we recommend serving with chicken or shrimp. On Tuesday, try this Date and Citrus Salad for a lighter meal. Go for this fantastic Sausage and Beans in Tomato Sauce meal on Wednesday. It's hearty, but not too heavy, so it won't leave you feeling too full. Finally, for Thursday, we've added this Garden Greens Gnocci. There will undoubtedly be enough leftovers to last you over the weekend or for lunch the following days.

 
For Mother's Day, you have got to try this Parsnip Cake with Browned Butter Mascarpone Cream, which is similar to a traditional carrot cake.

If you make any of the recipes, snap a photo and tag us #feedfeed @thefeedfeed on Instagram or TikTok for a chance to be featured. Happy cooking!

WEEKEND BONUS Parsnip Cake
By Cynthia Jordan

Spiced cake with the addition of parsnips adds a bite of heat similar to ginger. Frosted with a creamy brown butter mascarpone frosting, this cake has an incredible flavor but isn't over the top sweet.

If you like carrot cake-then this is a must-try for Spring.
