6. No-Knead Bread: Flour, yeast, salt and water — those are the only ingredients you need to make this nouveau classic loaf at home! Baking it in a hot Dutch oven is the key to achieving an impressively crusty exterior. (via Babble)
7. Spicy Roasted Clams With Andouille: Flavor-packed clams with a short list of all of the right ingredients — garlic, spicy sausage and wine. You won’t believe how quickly these are ready to eat! (via The Weather in Cascadia)
11. Dutch Oven Cinnamon Rolls: Know anyone on the fence about camping? Make a promise that you’ll bake up a batch of these cinnamon rolls over the fire on your next adventure, and, maybe, just maybe, that’ll sweeten the pot a bit. (via Julie Buckles)
20. Honey-Glazed Chicken With Quinoa Stuffing: Roasting chicken in a Dutch oven is a revelation. Stuffed with a souped up quinoa dressing, this bird deserves to take center stage on the dinner table ASAP! (via Canuck Cuisine)

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
