I only usually use this to save recipe links, but now I have to take a moment to save one of the best omelette combinations I’ve ever made! This morning I made an omelette with these buffalo chicken snackers, provel cheese and crumbled goldfish on top for some crunch. If you are a salt lover, this is the omelette for you! So good!
My sister is having friends over for dinner tonight, so I made a Strawberry Cheesecake Poke Cake this morning to sit in the fridge all day until dinner time when we can break in to it! I got the recipe from my Tasty cookbook. It was so simple and easy, and not to mention very delicious!! Definitely want to try it with blueberries or other berries in the future!
I decided I had to try the current breakfast trend here and make myself some egg clouds!
It took me two attempts… The first time I made it, I tried beating egg whites for probably 15 minutes straight and it wasn’t fluffing up. I googled about it and found that sometimes bowls have residue left on them from last usage, so the bowls should be extra clean and dry when making egg clouds. So, I cleaned and dried the bowl really well and tried again and it worked beautifully! I used this recipe.
They were super easy and fun to make on the second try when I got the hang of it! Note to self: clean and dry bowl extra well before usage next time I make this, and if the eggs don’t whip up to stiff peaks after about 5 minutes, you are doing something wrong!!
My sister went to a Sara Lee bakery outlet and when she was checking out, they gave her a free loaf of Texas toast that had a close expiration date. So, we decided to make a French toast casserole with the bread before it went bad to use it up easily! And we chose to make it for dinner… Who can resist breakfast for dinner?!
Anyway, this is the recipe I used:
To keep it short: Ree Drummond is my girl!! I love The Pioneer Woman and this recipe has got to be one of her best! So delicious! 🙂 Also, such a simple and easy make ahead breakfast. Happy first night of summer to me… Woo hoo! 😊
I had dinner at a friends house tonight, and ahw made us this recipe. I only took a picture of the avocado cilantro sauce because that was my contribution to the meal and I devoured the fish tacos immediately after I made them, but I still wanted to create a post to save the recipe she used because the tacos were perfect!
The picture definitely looks like baby barf in a bowl, but it was a great avocado/cilantro/lime/Greek yogurt sauce (we didn’t use jalapeño), and the seasoning for the fish was great!
I decided to try and make my mom a paleo chocolate cake for Mother’s Day because she’s been trying to eat more paleo inspired recipes, and is a huge fan of chocolate. I found this recipe and thought it looked good enough to give it a go.
It was really simple and easy, but it ended up tasting a tad dry to me. I wish that I poked some holes in the cake and poured some of the leftover coconut milk from the can on top of the cake to moisten it up a bit. Other than that, it was good!
This morning I was really feeling some almond meal pancakes, but then I decided I haven’t had some waffles in a while so I googled an almond meal waffle recipe and found this one that I really liked the looks of because it’s so simple:
To make it a bit more personal and to go along with my lemon and coconut craving, I decided to throw some lemon and coconut ingredients in there instead of the vanilla. I halved the recipe and then put in about 1/8 cup of unsweetened coconut, a small drizzle of coconut cream, the zest of half a lemon and then the juice of half a lemon as well.
I gotta say, these waffles were AWESOME! It was a great recipe find and the lemon/coconut additives were perfect! I was scared I was overdoing the lemon, but I definitely could have added a bit more of that and even some more coconut too. What made the recipe really perfect was adding some pure maple syrup on top of the waffles because almond meal can get a bit dry, and the maple syrup made it a perfect moisture, and I usually never use syrup! Such a successful breakfast this morning, woo hoo! Can’t wait to try it again and tweak it some more!
I had a pretty heavy dinner side dish today, so I wanted to keep it light and simple for a side dish! I have never made anything with squash/zucchini other than zoodles, so this time I decided to try pan frying them. I just cooked them in some coconut oil, garlic salt and paprika and they were great!
Today I decided to get an old ice cream maker out of storage and look up a health(ier) ice cream recipe. I found this one and decided to try it:
It definitely has a different kind of taste and texture, but I really like it!
