Feeding My Obsession

It’s no secret that I have a slight Pinterest addiction. When I had to split my “Recipes” board into appetizers, entrees, and desserts, I realized there are way more recipes in this world than I ever realized. And then when I had to split desserts into bars, cookies, cupcakes, etc… well, you get the idea!

Clearly there is not enough time to make all of these recipes right away, but I wanted to share some of the top recipes I’m excited to try out soon!

Appetizers

Creamy Brussels Sprout & Shallot Dip - The Minimalist Baker

Find me a get-together and I’m all over this! I may love brussels sprouts as much as I love Pinterest 😉 [P.S. did you know that there is an “s” at the end of brussels?]

Meatless Meals

This has quickly turned into one of my favorite categories. I’m loving experimenting with different forms of protein outside of the normal chicken, pork, beef.

Sesame-Crusted Tofu with Nuoc Cham - Alexandra's Kitchen

This reminds me so much of sesame-crusted tuna.. I can only hope it tastes just as delicious!

Sweet Potato Pizza Crust - Carrots N' Cake

Really, it’s sweet potatoes and pizza. How can you go wrong?!

Butternut Squash Casserole - Waking Up Vegan!

I have a thing for squash. Ok, let’s just agree that I have a thing for food in general.

Pork

Pork Carnitas - My Kitchen Escapades

Two words: crispy bits.

Poultry

Hot and Spicy Braised Peanut Chicken - Better Homes and Gardens

Hot and Spicy Braised Peanut Chicken – Better Homes and Gardens

Peanut butter? Again. It’s my thing. So clearly a peanut chicken dish appeals to me. Not to mention, it’s a slow cooker dish, which means it’s great for the Crock Pot Challenge!

Kung Pao Chicken - Closet Cooking

Seafood

Seared Salmon Tacos with Honey-Lime Slaw + Sriracha Ranch - Peas and Crayons

Seared Salmon Tacos with Honey-Lime Slaw + Sriracha Ranch – Peas and Crayons

Nathan doesn’t eat seafood so I rarely make it for dinner, but I definitely see this as something I could duplicate for him with chicken.

Desserts

Black Bean Powerbake - Powercakes

Black Bean Powerbake – Powercakes

I’ve been trying to cut sugar out of my diet as much as possible so this looks like the perfect snack to curb my chocolate cravings!

Coconut Almond Butter Bites - Running to the Kitchen

Coconut Almond Butter Bites – Running to the Kitchen

Coconut. Almond butter. Chocolate. Need I say more?

Dark & Stormy Quick Bread with Lime Glaze - A Cozy Kitchen

If the drink is good, the bread must be good too, right?

Well, that should be enough to get started. Looks like I have a quite a bit of cooking to do this weekend! 😉
