best of march graphicHow was your March? Mine was filled with travel, taxes and the uncontrollable urge to eat as much avocado toast as possible.

However today isn’t about avocado toast, it’s all about March! Including delicious eats, treats, travel and things I’ve been loving lately…

New Ambitious Kitchen Recipes from March:

Blackened Salmon Tacos with Forbidden Rice + Mango Guacamole GF

Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Greek Yogurt Waffles GF

Lemon Blueberry Pistachio Cupcakes V, GF

Sweet & Spicy Quinoa Beet Burgers V, GF

Roasted Sweet Potato & Black Bean Salad with Fresh Pineapple Corn Salsa V, GF

5-Ingredient Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Skillet V, GF

Lightened Up Carrot Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting GF

Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Chicken Chickpea Chili GF

It’s no surprise, but my turkey chili was still the most popular recipe in March, with my skinny banana muffins coming in second. I was surprised to see my chickpea blondies also make a comeback onto the top 10 from last month via my site analytics. Exciting stuff. I’m planning to cook and bake with more chickpeas in April, so stay tuned!

My personal favorite recipe from March was probably the salmon tacos and the carrot cake (links above!).

Other posts to check out:

13 of the best dark chocolate bars + the health benefits of dark chocolate. Yes, I ate 13 dark chocolate bars for research purposes. That being said, I had a few stand out favorites and would love if you hopped over and gave me some of your chocolate recommendations!

Interview with Beauty Blogger Elizabeth Dehn + her best beauty tips & recommendations! I love Elizabeth’s approach to skincare and her recommendations are spot on.

Instagram feature + an ask from you!

lounging by the pool

If you follow me on Instagram, you know it’s usually all about food, however this book was such a terrific read, plus it didn’t hurt that I got to read it by the pool in Mexico.

Next month, I hope to feature some of you in this post, so if you make a recipe from AK be sure to tag #ambitiouskitchen so I can see your creations (this only works if your profile is public). I’d love to see what your making!

Where I traveled in March:

I went to both Scottsdale, AZ & Tecate, Mexico! AND experienced my very first In-n-Out burger (OMG!). The AK travel guides for both cities will be coming out in April.

You guys know I love to travel and it’s been such a privilege incorporating it into Ambitious Kitchen in a natural, authentic way. So thank you for commenting on my travel posts and giving them some love. Where should we go next?!

By the way, if any of you have been to Glacier National Park in Montana, please let me know. I’m planning a trip right now and would love some hiking and lodging recommendations!

Other things I’m loving:

running shoes, coffee, and a protein bar

I got these new Nikes and LOVE them so much. They’re more for running, but I like them when I do treadmill classes or walking outside. P.S. I still haven’t had my first outdoor run of the season. Hoping to accomplish that soon, but that Lake Michigan wind is fiesty.

GoMacro Bars in cashew caramel. Also known as my favorite 3pm snack.

Trader Joe’s bran flakes with almond coconut milk. Ridiculously addicting, especially when you add raisins and bananas. Basically raisin bran on crack.

Lulu & Georgia. This site is pure gold when it comes to rugs & decorating your home.

House of Cards on Netflix. We finally busted through aka binged on season 4. Quite possibly my favorite season yet! Have you watched it?

THIS beauty sleep perfector for your skin. It’s like skin juice. I’m not kidding, I wake up in the morning after putting this on and my skin is effortlessly smooth. Moisture heaven!

Basically everything from Urban Outfitters including this floral top, this super cute dress and finally these amazing high top adidas.

I’m on snapchat almost every day making a recipe or showing you something weird about my life. Let’s be friends!


That’s all I have for you! Let me know if you have anything you’re craving for April so I can create some recipes!
