I just got home from a much needed mom’s night out at Park Tavern. Unfortunately Isla decided to refuse a bottle tonight (?) so I’m about to feed her, but FIRST I have some good recipes for you!!
Last night we tried a super easy, one pot recipe that I found in the most recent Whole Foods flyer, of all places. You basically saute onion, sage and turkey kielbasa in a pot, then add in quinoa, hard cider, cranberries and water (I used chicken broth). Simmer for a while then throw in some chopped kale.
I honestly didn’t have high hopes for this one, but it turned out great! The cider gives it a nice sweetness (even Jack liked it). Brian recommended using a saltier sausage next time but I thought it was fine as is. I love that you get your carb + protein + veggies all in one pot, and the cleanup is a breeze. The recipe is here if you’re interested. Next time I might try it with dried cherries.
Next up: Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies.
I can’t stop eating these!! They’re just like standard chocolate chip cookies except that you use yellow cake mix for part of the flour… oh, and throw in a half cup of sprinkles, too. The recipe calls for a combination of white chocolate and semi-sweet, but I skipped the white chocolate because I’m not a fan.
So there are a couple of good recipes for you to try!! One super healthy and one… not so much. Isla’s giving me hungry eyes so I better run.
