So, my muffin fail isn’t a complete fail. They are REALLY delicious, full of fiber, super moist, and they have an awesome spice pallet. I did do some modifications, and they did not rise. They are completely flat. You can find the original recipe on All Recipes here. I did do some pretty drastic modifications, because I got lazy and the internet was not pulling up exactly what I wanted. I wanted pumpkin, I wanted oatmeal, I wanted flax, and I wanted coffee. I know – picky picky picky!
I love Asian fusion, I love all the flavours, the depth and spice. One thing that you need for a good fresh roll, or a good noodle bowl is a delicious peanut sauce! I have tried recipe after recipe of peanut sauce and this one is exactly what I want. Since finding it I’ve tried a few other peanut sauces and nothing compares to this and nothing in the store (that I was able to find) compares either. Some of you may also be interested to know – it’s peanut free and incredibly easy!
I am so excited to tell you about my latest recipe added to my rotation. Zucchini Couscous Lasagna Casserole! Yum! I based it off of a recipe from Recipies.com but the sauce needed a little something so I improvised. Also, I really like Israeli couscous as opposed to the ground up bits, so I modified it to accommodate that as well.
I am so excited to tell you about my latest foodie find, Shakshuka. I love eggs, they are very nutritious, delicious, affordable, and they are super quick! So when my husband saw this on Reddit I had to try it. This Shakshuka costs me about $3.00 and it will feed me and the husband for a meal with a single egg left over for a snack. Read more
I was recently trying to describe the basics of my breakfast shake to a friend and I realized its more complicated than I thought. I have gotten so used to it since I’ve been making it every morning for the last 3 or 4 years. So the easiest way for me to share it with her, is to also share it with you!
I love mac n cheese, but all that work for a side? Not this time! I’ve adapted Betty Crocker’s Mac and Cheese so that it’s an entree. Lean ground turkey as our protein and mexican taco spices make this side into a full entree – and its lean (if you want).
About a month ago I stopped buying bread and transitioned to home-made. The first time I made bread was because my grocer was doing renovations and didn’t have the in-store baked bread available; and all those breads that are shipped in have weird ingredients that I can’t pronounce. Now I make the time so that we are eating real ingredients. I’ve morphed 2 recipes: my friend’s Grandma’s & Betty Crocker’s Classic White Bread. There are only 2 of us so I only make 1 loaf and it lasts us about a week or so. I do own a bread maker – but I don’t like the bread that comes out of that, its so dense! I assumed that it would be complicated to make bread by hand. If my machine couldn’t get it right, how could I? But this bread is easy and amazing! If I can do it, you can too!
