As of late, I've been flipping through my recipe box each weekend and trying to pick things that I kept wanting to try - here are some of my successes!
1. Homemade Bagels!
Recipe: From Sophisticated Gourmet
Reflection: I made these for my friend Kathryn when I went to cheer her on at the Nashville Rock n' Roll. I was a little concerned about it, but they turned out awesome. Next time I would add some sugar though.. I like my bagels a little sweeter.
2. Broccoli Quiche with whole-wheat crust
Recipe: From Kath Eats (LOVE her blog)
Reflection: Love this - a semi-time consuming dinner, but the leftovers are great for breakfast the next day. And the whole wheat crust turned out prettier than I expected. Quiche is my ideal comfort food because it is cozy and yummy, but can still be made pretty healthy. I filled this one with mushrooms, bell pepper, broccoli and was able to skip the cheese.
3. Black Bean Burgers
Oh She Glows
Reflection: I love to make lentil and chickpea burgers, but this was my first time making black bean burgers. I've said it before and I will say it again - veggie burgers are SO easy to make. Why but the frozen ones? This recipe made 6 big burgers, so I put some in the freezer. I will let you know how they freeze! (Note, the recipe calls for a flax egg, but I used a real egg. This made the hold together a lot better).
In reality, I just wish I could be like the Pioneer Women and cook all the time. Maybe law school wasn't my calling? Let's hope that is just finals talking ;) This week I am trying a recipe for butternut squash soup and some sweet potato chocolate chip cookies. Yum.
Have any awesome recipe successes lately? Please send them my way!
