We’re switching things up a little for our monthly recipe round ups. Going forward we’re going to offer a round up of recipes in three categories: 1. ones from our blog (usually with some variation or suggestion), 2. ones from other websites (recipe wins we would make again), and 3. ones that we want to make (they have seriously caught our eye) but just haven’t yet. May they all be a source of inspiration for you! (Especially if you find yourself in a meal planning slump…where we have been way too many times.)
ones from the blog:
Made our favorite Cream Scones but this time with a generous teaspoon of espresso powder and shaved dark chocolate.
This Thai Veggie Burger can take on a more Mediterranean flair by skipping the ginger, swapping tahini for peanut butter and using parsley for cilantro (or both!) I served mine with a beet feta whip, red onion, and hummus.
Top our Quick & Easy Biscuits with this Gravy and you’ve got a hearty meal within a half hour. You can bake the biscuits in a cake pan or skillet so that they bake into each other a little and swap sausage (or ground chorizo!) in for the beef. Delicious!
new ones we tried:
Spinach and Artichoke Stuffed Soft Pretzels via Half Baked Harvest. Made a triple batch of these, getting 12 smaller pretzels per batch, and they were devoured. Made one batch according to the recipe, one stuffed with pepperoni instead of spinach & artichoke, and one plain without any filling. The dough is easy to work with, and the finished pretzels are delicious and reheat very well!
Toasted Cashew and Marzipan Blondies via Food52. Extra thick with a blend of textures and flavors, these bars are addictive.
Blueberry snacking cake with toasted nut topping via Food52. This is one of their genius recipes and it is genius quick, genius easy, and really yummy. One of those buttery cakes with pops of fresh fruit and topped with a crunchy sugary nut topping that is really hard to stop eating.
Gnocchi alla Romana via A Beautiful Palate. These are always a smash hit in my house. They are soft and fluffy with crisp cheesy edges that are totally addicting. A nice change up from pasta or polenta.
Homemade Coconut Milk via Minimalist Baker. From making Indian curry to accommodating lactose intolerant friends and family, coconut milk comes in handy. I used to buy it in a can from the grocery store, but once I discovered how easy it is to make, I don’t think I’ll be buying it again.
Coconut Cashew Chickpea Curry via SeriousEats. So creamy and rich from the blitzed up cashews and coconut, but also a wholesome dish. This gets gobbled up every time to rave reviews.
ones we want to try:
Hot Dogs with Pineapple Bacon Relish via Simply Recipes.
Fluffy Japanese Pancakes via i am a food blog.
Flan Cake via Pies & Tacos.
