Here are today's 5 Recipes I would love to make:
Sweet Potato, Curry, and Quinoa (in a bowl) from Happyolks
When I saw this picture I literally froze in mid-movement. The colors are so amazing! And the recipe is loaded with flavors I love, with the curry and the ginger and the sweet potato, and spinach...And I recently discovered quinoa and how delicious it is. This has got to be a winner!
Amazing Sun-Dried Tomato Cottage Cheese Muffins by In Fine Fettle
Yikes! I totally forgot about these! I remember when I first saw this recipe (almost three years ago) I said something like, "Oh...my..." And I think there was a big, longing-type of *sigh* in there somewhere. With only 1/4 cup flour, you could easily make these gluten-free by using a gluten-free flour alternative (like rice flour, perhaps). I need to put this back on my recipes-to-make short list.
Churros from The Sophisticated Gourmet
Fried dough is delicious. It. Just. Is. One of my all-time favorite treats is funnel cake (another type of fried dough, just in case you've been deprived and don't know what funnel cake is), and I can remember getting it at the Boardwalk in Santa Cruze when we'd go to the beach when I was a kid. I still pine away for it, and whenever I'm at a county fair or wharf or boardwalk I'm on a mission to find it. It's been surprising to me as an adult that it's not so easy to find. But that just makes it all the better when I do. Just look at that churro! So perfectly crispy on the outside and so perfectly chewy on the inside!
Garlic Shrimp Pasta from Simmer Down! (a food lover's blog)
This recipe has so much going for it! Simple, few ingredients, flavorful ingredients, and easy on the pocket book. And it's another one I totally forgot about (I'm so glad I started doing this round-up and going through my bookmarked recipes!). I think this would be perfect for a quick dinner when you're really short on time and the idea of choosing between cereal and PB&J (again) just makes you sad.
Margarita Cake from Recipe Girl
This is one of my Pinterest recipe-finds. Doesn't it just look super-moist and delicious? And adorable with the little twist of lime on top? She says to not skip the whipped cream and lime, and I totally agree! After you bookmark this recipe, make sure you click over to the post she links to at the top for: Mamacita Needs a Margarita Cake. Because it's so funny. And because if you have a kid who is 8 or 9, or know a kid who is 8 or 9, you will get a nice little chuckle out of her story. And you probably need a chuckle today.
Next week I'll post 5 more Recipes I would love to make!
