One Pot Pad Thai

For dinner tonight, I made my sister and I this One Pot Pad Thai recipe from a tasty cookbook that I have. It was easy to make and also tasted great!


Black Bean Lime Dip

I enjoyed the chickpea salad so much from dinner last night that I decided to make a huge batch to make lunch sandwiches out of this week! The only downside is I make the already previously posted homemade classic hummus recipe for lunch every week so I didn’t want to chickpea overload! As a result, I decided to research a black bean dip to eat my veggies with and I thought this one sounded good:

It was a good one that I am glad that I found, but I put in a tad too much ginger I think! Ginger can be very hit or miss for me too, so maybe next time I’ll just use a little bit less ginger. But I liked the citrus spin on a black bean hummus dip!

Chickpea Salad Sandwich with Low Carb Bread

When my brother was here this week, he bought a handful of chickpea cans to make dinners with, but then he got sick so I’m left with a bunch of chickpea cans I get to use up! For dinner tonight, I really wanted to try this chickpea salad recipe:

And for the bread, I have been wanting to try this since I received a Kirbie’s Cravings (awesome food blog) email this week:

Both recipes were awesome in my opinion!! I really want to make the chickpea salad again in bulk so that I can eat it throughout the week for lunch. It was so tasty and I’m glad I found the recipe!

No Bake Cake Batter Bites

Currently having a pretty lazy Sunday around here, so I wanted to conquer some boredom by baking something quick and easy! I was craving a small dessert bite of some sort, and after looking around for some, I chose to make this no bake cake batter bite:

I have made some of his recipes before and I love how creative they all are! This one was great like the rest and didn’t take long at all to make up so I can have a nice and easy treat to grab in my desk at work this week! 🙂

Paleo Cauliflower (& Broccoli) Crust Pizza

Tonight I wanted to make dinner for my parents who have been eating paleo, so I decided to make this cauliflower crust recipe for them:

The recipe for the crust was very good! It fell apart very easily but I still have yet to find a cauliflower pizza crust recipe that doesn’t fall apart when you try to pick it up. For the topping, I used a precooked and packaged smoked sausage and it was awesome!! I almost liked it better than ground sausage!

I also make a broccoli crust pizza (link on previous post) for my sister and I, who does not like cauliflower as much. We used black olives, roasted green pepper and turkey pepperoni for our sausage. Both were delicious and will be made again!

Shrimp Boil Sheet Pan Dinner

For dinner today, I wanted to throw something together that was healthier and easy. I thought of doing a sort of shrimp boil sheet pan dinner, so I googled it and found a recipe from this blog site I love!

It was such a simple and quick dinner, and I absolutely loved the old bay seasoning on it. Corn on the cob was a tad expensive so instead I threw on some cauliflower, zucchini, red pepper & carrots that I had to use them up and all items were great in the recipe. I will definitely do this again sometime with the corn on the cob!

White Bean & Tuna Salad

This weekend, I have been craving white beans and I have some cans of tuna that have been taking up space in my pantry, so I decided to see if white bean and tuna salad was a thing. After some googling, it turns out it is actually a thing and I decided to make this recipe for lunchesthis week:

It is actually really tasty and I’ll be using some Aldi Fit & Active flatbreads to make wraps for lunch this week with the white bean tuna salad inside! Going to be a good week of lunches!
