Happy Sunday, and happy Easter if you’re celebrating! I hope you guys loved #AKMuffinWeek this week, and are sharing muffins with your family this weekend. We’re celebrating Easter with Tony’s family, which means I got to make all of my favorite recipes (empanadas + rice & beans aka happiness). I’ve also been planning recipes for you guys this month, and had to kick it off with some of my favorite seasonal recipes to make in April.

Collage of eight seasonal recipes to make in April

SO excited for all things spring. April showers bring May flowers, plus the best veggies to make salads, curries, and even my fav pizzas. I’ve been low-key obsessed with adding citrus to baked goods, so be sure to stock up on oranges this month.
