Top 5 in Review

You may have thought I was crazy for shooting for my Weekender Top 5. And I have to admit, my eyes were bigger than my stomach! I did, however, make it through 3 of my 5 recipes and I’m pleased to say I would absolutely make them again!

First up was the Pumpkin Power Roll. I made this Saturday night for dessert, but ended up having 1 little slice for dessert and then devouring the rest for breakfast Sunday morning. I would definitely recommend this recipe, though, I’m not sure I’ll be able to wait to let it cool and roll up. I might have to eat it flat 😉

Next up were the Vegan White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies. Unfortunately, I was unable to locate any vegan white chocolate chips, so they ended up just being macadamia nut cookies. They have a bit more of a banana flavor then I expected, but they’re quite tasty nonetheless. Today just happens to be Homemade Cookie Day which is perfect since I made these cookies for a family dinner tonight! Even though I may have snuck a taste of one last night. Quality control, people! Someone has to do it!

Finally, I made the Coconut Bundt Cake and she’s a beaut! I may have taken a little nibble from the bottom of this one too.. like I said, quality control! It came out so well and I can’t wait to dig in tonight!

If you follow me on Pinterest, you’ll know I am a recipe pinning machine! I’ve gotten around to making a few of the recipes, but definitely not as many as I would like. This weekend, I’m going to attempt to tackle 5 of my pinned recipes.

1. Power Pumpkin Roll from Kasey of Powercakes.

I’ve seen this recipe before but not given it any though. Now that pumpkin season is among us, I’ve seen so many people raving about it on twitter that I just have to try it! Not to mention, Nathan loves his pumpkin rolls, so if I can give him a healthy version of it, he’ll be in seventh heaven!

2. Cauliflower Crust Pizza; another tasty recipe from Kasey!

Cauliflower crust pizza is another recipe that I’ve heard rave reviews about but haven’t gotten around to trying it. I may even have to copy the egg on top. Looks amazing!

3. Autumn Vegetable Soup from Lori of Recipe Girl

One of my favorite cool-weather soups is my Butternut Squash Soup and I imagine this will be just as tasty!
