Recipe Roundup

Unless I am baking, I have never been a recipe follower. I usually start with a recipe for inspiration and go in my own direction from there. This is how many of the recipes I post on my blog are born! Time spent in my kitchen is my creative time and I enjoy every minute. The hour I take each week to sit down and plan our meals is therapeutic for me. I scroll through Pinterest, flip through my cookbooks and look back in my recipe archives, making it a goal to make at least one new recipe a week. We've been enjoying a lot of new bites lately and there are several new recipes that I have followed to a "T". Here's a quick recipe roundup from my kitchen to yours!

1. Healthy Banana Bread Chocolate Chip Oat Breakfast Bars- Another find from my sister, I love these breakfast bars! These are great for busy weeks to grab and go on the run!

2. New York Times Tuscan Kale Salad- Obsessed doesn't even begin to describe my feelings for this salad. It appears on our menu at least once weekly and I have been eating some version of it for lunches almost daily.

3. Margarita Cupcakes- These should appear at every celebration! My has made these a few times and they are always a huge hit. I made them last weekend for a Stock the Bar Party and everyone went back for more. 

4. Against All Grain Pumpkin Muffins- This recipe comes from the Against All Grain cookbook (my new bookshelf fave!!) If you google the recipe, it's published on several other blogs, although if you are looking for a Paleo cookbook to add to your collection, Danielle's cookbook is just wonderful!

5. Chicken Cacciatore- I made this during #snOMG and it was a warm and comforting meal. We ate this on top of quinoa and the leftovers were tasty! 

6. Whole Foods Black Bean Burgers- I have been on a black bean burger kick and these are another recent lunch staple. I actually did make a few changes to this recipe. I subbed 1/2 cup almond meal and 1/2 cup of cashew meal instead of the breadcrumbs. I also eat them plain without a bun and a little avocado and fresh lime juice on top!

7. Cauliflower Burrito Bowls- If you have never tried cauliflower rice, here's a perfect and delicious way to enjoy it. These burrito bowls are so tasty, fresh and incredibly healthy. This blog (The Roasted Root) is also full of TONS of great recipes.
