Green Chile Corn Pudding
Blueberry Goat Cheese Pastry Braid
These pastry braids are an elegant addition to any special occasion tablescape (I just said tablescape. Pls forgive me. Thanks.) Anyhow, these make delicious breakfasts, desserts, or appetizers with minor tweaks to the filling ingredients. They are deceptively easy to prepare, and they come out beautiful enough to impress your guests!

Homemade Chips and Queso
Diana (of The Chic Life fame) and I became friends while rooming together in San Francisco for the now-defunct FoodBuzz Conference. Apart from providing me a new forever-friend, a partner to explore Alcatraz, and an accomplice for a spontaneous photo shoot around the city in the leopard-print robes we secreted out of our hotel, Diana continues to provide me with inspiration. I especially love that every January she hosts Eat in Month over on her blog. I get tons of great tips for eating in every year she does it! But to be honest, I’m an eating-out junkie. So I have to start small.
ConAgra’s #GreatAmericanCookIn Challenge is my baby step! The idea is that you pledge to cook in for just one week during the month of May. Boost your meal planning, confidence, and creativity by challenging yourself to not spend a single dime eating out — for just one week!

I HAVE A NEW HUSBAND.
If you follow along on with Willow Bird Baking on Facebook, you know that I periodically decide a new type of cheese is my husband and maintain an obsession with that cheese until it is dethroned. WELL IT’S HAPPENED AGAIN.
Melty Falafel Quesadilla
Thanks to Girard’s Salad Dressing for sponsoring this post!
I’ve been in a salad dressing rut, so I was so excited to work with new-to-me Girard’s Salad Dressings to develop a recipe. It seems like so many options on the store shelves taste like straight-up vinegar, and I’m super bored with balsamic vinaigrette or blue cheese. Sometimes you just need a change, know what I mean? Girard’s had so many flavors that spoke to me right off the bat: Champagne, Caesar, Chinese Chicken Salad, Greek Feta Vinaigrette, Olde Venice Italian, Original French, Spinach Salad, Raspberry, Vin Rouge, White French and White Balsamic Vinaigrette.
I was especially up for trying the Greek Feta Vinaigrette because I figured it’d be the perfect base to create a new Mediterranean-inspired recipe, and I was so right! The tangy pepperoncini peppers and feta flavor notes in the dressing had me dreaming of pairing it with crispy falafel to create a fabulous side dish.
