There are so many talented food bloggers out there that I thought I would highlight some of the recipes I'm lovin' lately. I love trying others' recipes and it still gives me a chance to work on my food photography. Here's three I've made within the last couple of weeks that are going to stick around our house!
The first is a little bit of a deviation from what I usually create. I know I'm mostly baking and desserts but I love a good salad too. The Kale Caesar Salad with Smoky Sweet Potatoes and Crispy Chickpeas from Half Baked Harvest is incredible. Maybe you aren't a salad person or maybe salads aren't your thing in the depth of winter (Hello New Englanders!), but I'm confident that this salad can convert the most anti-salad people out there. The sweet potatoes and chickpeas make the dish hearty and the dressing is heavenly. I want it in my fridge for dipping everything. I could also stare at this website for hours and drool over the stunning food photography.
Next up is a simple and healthy breakfast or post-workout snack from Ambitious Kitchen. These Peanut Butter Banana Baked Oatmeal Cups were quickly gobbled up by myself and the kids. My 16 month old son looooved them. They don't have any refined sugar or flour...all oatmeal, banana and protein packed peanut butter. They're easy for on the go, hearty snacks and are really quick to make. Thank you!
Annnd lastly, I know that there are probably a million chocolate chip cookie recipes out there, but this recipe for the Easiest Chocolate Chip Cookies by Katiebird Bakes holds true to its name and they are delicious. These cookies are soft and buttery, which is exactly how I love them. The best part of this recipe is that I made the entire thing on my stovetop in a medium sized pot, scooped out the finished batter onto the cookie tray and they were done in the oven in 9 minutes. Forgot to leave butter out to get to room temperature? No problem. You don't need to do that for this recipe. Don't have a stand mixer or don't want to bother with multiple bowls etc.? No worries. This recipe has that covered too. My only complaint is that they didn't last long enough here, but that's what happens with 3 kids and a plate full of amazing cookies.
So there you have it! Three recipes definitely worth digging into. I hope you're having a great week!
