Sometimes I just get tired of my go-to dinners, which gives my the perfect opportunity to try the delicious sounding recipes piling up on my Pinterest board. Instead of my traditional recipe review format, I want to share the three new recipes I tested this past week (plus a plug for the one go-to dinner I'm not tired of).
Do you ever have one of those nights where you just want to curl up on the couch in front of the TV with a huge plate of comfort food? Me too...almost every day. Comfort food may not always be the healthiest, and often leaves me feeling lethargic, but I think I found the solution thanks to Juli over at PaleOMG. This (dairy free) spinach artichoke dip hits all the right notes and just in time for any Super Bowl parties in your future.
Before the holidays become a distant memory, I want to quickly share these cocoa fritters (donut holes) I tested for a family Hannukah meal. Fried foods, especially donuts, are traditional during Hannukah to commemorate the miracle of a small amount of oil lasting eight days, but these fritters would be a crowd pleaser any time of year.
It's that time of year again...Holiday Baking Extravaganza. Although I do not celebrate Christmas, many of my friends, coworkers, and family members do, so each year I reach deep into my brain; recalling my baking skills, and get to work. The Holiday Baking Extravaganza occurs in two parts; Part 1 is for my coworkers, and Part 2 is for David's family. Today, I am sharing my Part 1 recipe review, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Mini Loaves from Brandy over at the Gluesticks blog.
I promised when I started this blog to review all kinds of recipes, not just the paleo/primal ones. Until now, I have not help that promise, but hopefully this review makes up for it! A recent meeting of the cookbook club David and I belong to provided a great excuse to step outside my culinary comfort zone and try something new. The dinner was a Halloween themed Friendsgiving (attempting to celebrate two holidays in one night), where we all picked a recipe from The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays.
What better way to celebrate the arrival of fall than with a delicious bowl of soup! This Hearty Chinese Egg Drop Soup called my name weeks ago while scrolling through Pinterest, and I could not wait to give it a try. It looked easy enough; a limited number of ingredients, quick cooking time, and the added benefit of the Paleo label (although I ended up making a swap that disqualified this category). If you are like me, Chinese cuisine seems intimidating, but keep reading and I promise to change your mind.
