Great Everyday Meals Magazine: Hello Spring! April-June 2016 Issue

My favorite time of year has arrived ...spring! A feeling of renewal and lightness sets in as the heaviness of winter melts away and we can finally start shedding layers of clothing. Not to mention, all of the wonderful celebrations the come with the season. And with those celebrations, there’s always a delicious meal to be enjoyed with friends and family.

It wouldn’t be Easter without eggs. This incredible food is one of the most nutritious and versatile foods out there. Chef Chrissy Camba of Maddy’s Dumpling House in Chicago, shares recipes that call for the egg as the star of the show.

Speaking of eggs, they also have a prominent place at brunch tables everywhere. Visions of laid back weekends, meeting up with friends or hosting family at the house come to mind when I think of brunch. A delicious spread of savory and sweet brunch dishes is the perfect way to celebrate Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Gather the family around the table and create memories with a brunch menu from Momma Cuisine herself.

One of the most colorful celebrations of the season is Cinco de Mayo. Strike up the mariachi band and let the margarita’s flow. Food blogger and Mexican cuisine connoisseur, ErickaSanchez of, helps us create a fabulous fiesta dinner.

With the arrival of spring comes the unofficial kick-off of food truck festivals all across the country. Fun, family-friendly and gloriously delicious food as far as the eye can see, you have to check one out this season. Check out our top picks for the best food truck festivals in the country.

Be sure to check out all we have in store for you in this issue of Great Everyday Meals Magazine. Take time to savor every moment and enjoy my favorite season with your favorite people.

Happy spring!
