Just to recap, this is a post featuring my most memorable meals or food from the week, either new recipes I’ve made, ingredients I’m enjoying, old recipes already on the blog, or recipes created by others.
If you see anything you’d like me to post in the future, I’d love for you to leave a comment letting me know!
1. Oatmeal Berry Bread
I’ve had the idea for this recipe in my head for quite a while, but only recently tried it out with great success…
Oil-free, sugar-free, and so delicious! Everyone in the house ate this up, and it’s so easy to make.
2. Paprika Stir-Fry
Once again, I’ve been stirring up more stir-fries, much to the chagrin of my stir-fry-hating family. Boooooo…
I really enjoyed this one, which uses smoked paprika as the main flavor enhancer. I used a combo of various veggies I had on hand, including snow peas, cabbage, and carrot and paired it with jasmine brown rice (my fave). Totes yum.
3. Homemade Coconut Cream
I don’t tolerate the canned coconut milks very well, which I why I make my own every week, but, lately, I’ve also been attempting to create my own coconut cream as well…
See the separation? My milk actually ended up doing a fairly good job at creating its own ‘cream’ layer, which made me quite happy!
4. Green Pea and Sun-Dried Tomato Dip
I’ve been eyeballing this recipe by Giada de Laurentiis for quite a while and finally got around to making it…
Sorry my spoon is so dirty, but I actually LOVED this! The peas and sun-dried tomatoes create a sweeter dip that I just ate alongside a helping of quinoa and roasted veggies. I also cut the oil to two tablespoons and added two tablespoons of water for the other half. My kids didn’t like it, but if you like the ingredients, it’s worth a go!
5. Buckwheat Bread
What can I say, buckwheat has been a staple in my life lately! I tried recreating an Irish soda bread with it, and the results were pretty tasty…
Funny enough, I made this for poor wheat-intolerant Jade who didn’t really care for it. My biggest complaint is that it was a bit dry, so I’d have to go through a few more trials with it before posting.
Thanks for reading! Let me know if anything looks good, or leave a link for anything you’ve had that’s been worth making.
