When it comes to cooking, Jo from Living Mint Green put it best my philosophy into words the best in her post the other day: “I “followed” this recipe, and in true healthy living blogger fashion, made some adjustments…. So basically I didn’t follow the recipe.” A girl after my own heart.
I’m guilty of pinning recipes or saving them on Bloglovin’ and never making them. (Aren’t we all?) I always had this fun idea to cook through everything on my Pinterest page, but truthfully, I like cooking and I like making up my own recipes.
People ask where I get my inspiration for my recipes, and a lot of time it’s just looking at a bunch of recipes, picking and choosing what I like and hoping it all works out. I haven’t really felt like experimenting in the kitchen – nor have I had the time – but.. um… yeah, I have a lot more free time right now. (More on that later.) So, here’s what I’ve been cooking (and eating!) lately.
I am ob. sessed. with this salad. I think I’ve shared it with every person I know. I kind of bastardized it a few times, adding chicken or subbing raisins, but this dressing is also on point. I never knew if I would like a tahini dressing – but it is absolutely perfect here.
I’ve never not loved something I have made from Davida’s blog and this was no exception. I had been craving curry, she posted this recipe, I realized I had everything and bam… curry in a kind of hurry. (Is Curry in a Hurry a thing in America? Was it just in Hong Kong? Did I dream up Curry in a Hurry?)
I love this recipe so much I now have it memorized. I typically just make the crust, put on avocado, goat cheese, crushed red pepper and sea salt then broil it for a few minutes. Then I top with a runny egg or two. Chickpea flour pizza crust is THE BEST crust.
I’ve been craving English Muffins like crazy lately. Luckily Arman posted this recipe and it was so wholesome and so good – oh and did I mention, so easy? I made the gluten-free version and topped it with some white cheddar and a runny egg. I recommend making a bunch of these as a way to use some some extra pumpkin!
As I mentioned, thanks to marathon training, all I want to eat is salt. I always want to eat salmon so salt + salmon = perfection. This is definitely a different take on salmon – give it a try!
