Here are some of my favorite recipes I've tried over the past few months. I will try to remember to take pictures of my own creations moving forward!
(1) Cauliflower "Fried Rice"
I'm on a cauliflower kick, it's true. At least one meal a week lately has featured the vegetable, especially since I just got a food processor and LOVE using it. It's hard to believe, but I actually like this recipe BETTER than fried rice. It's amazingly delicious and has a great texture.
Hints: You can get frozen peas and carrot bags mixed together in the freezer aisle, and there's plenty leftover for future recipes. Sesame oil and green onions are also a must for good flavor.
(2) Foil Pack Chicken & Artichoke Dinner
I hadn't tried a foil pack dinner until this one, and I was so thrilled with the lack of clean up and ease/deliciousness of this meal.
Hints: You'll have plenty of leftover pesto and zesty Italian dressing, so I recommend making this twice in two weeks. I also substituted brown rice for white rice. It was delicious!
(3) Easy Chicken Bake
I also make a lot of chicken because I don't enjoy other meat much (except for shaved turkey and ground turkey) and it's healthier for you. The pesto/tomato combination is delicious and this meal is SO easy. Next time I'll try it over rice.
(4) Funfetti Gooey Butter Cookies
I've made these twice for my coworkers since I first discovered the recipe. I cannot emphasize how EASY and delicious these cookies are. Try them!
(5) Texas Sheet Cake Cookies
I made these a few months ago for Sunday dinner at a friend's home and they were a huge hit. I'm a big Texas Sheet cake fan and I was not disappointed in this recipe. It was a little bit of work/time/prep, but totally worth it.
On the menu for next week:
- Roasted Red Bell Pepper Hummus (my first hummus attempt!)
- Pepperoni Pizza Cauliflower
- Turkey Taco Quinoa Bake
