Have you ever had those days, weeks, months, where you just can’t get ahead, or even caught up? Yeah, I know I’m not the first but it sure is getting old. Life is way too hectic right now and blogging has sadly taken place on the bottom of the to-do list. Hopefully, this is only the case for two more weeks. Don’t worry, everything’s ok, I’m just working 12+ hour days along with trying to plan for this little one coming soon.
Of course, we do still eat when I’m busy but dinners just may be a bit quicker and unfortunately, less healthy as well (a really terrible excuse, I know!). Since I won’t be able to blog about some of the things we’ve been eating, I thought I’d at least leave you a list with some links to some really great recipes I’ve made variations of over the past few weeks. We had my parents over last weekend so I did make a nice meal that night and tried a bunch of new recipes.
No fear, I’ll be back soon. In fact, this week, I’m hosting over at Project Pastry Queen with Dulce de Leche Arborio Rice Pudding. I’ll give you a hint…I made the dulce de leche portion already and it’s pretty darn awesome.
Peanut Buttercups with Peanut-Penuche Icing – I made these for Easter and everyone liked them except for me.
Oatmeal Crisps – these are very similar to Nature Valley’s granola bars (but better and slightly chewy) and so easy to make. These are definitely an item that will be on standby for quick snacks once the baby gets here. Highly recommended!
Wild Rice Cakes – a new way to eat and present wild rice. My version was a bit different but the concept is the same.
Asparagus, Peas, and Basil – I’ve got to admit, I hadn’t ever thought of combining these ingredients but it works! And, I should also mention we have awesome friends who grow asparagus and let us come pick whenever we want. So lucky and sooo delicious!
Sitr fry – A Trader Joe’s feast! Trader Ming’s Soyaki with frozen stir-fry veggies (plus some fresh) and Portobello Mushroom Chicken Sausage.
Super Soft and Fluffy Dinner Rolls – My only improvement would be to add salt. These were one of the quicker and easier dinner roll recipes I’ve found.
Cauliflower Gratin – A totally unhealthy way to enjoy cauliflower
White Chocolate Souffle Cake with Roasted Grapes – you’ll have to wait for this one because I did get a few pictures and plan to blog about this one.
Roasted Vegetable Pasta with Lemon Mascarpone Sauce and Inside-Out Chicken Cordon Bleu – You’ll have to wait for this one as well. I made it after one of those days I couldn’t take working any longer. I NEEDED to cook and this was well worth it.
Until next time, which hopefully is very soon!
