The recipes this week have turned out to be some of my new favorites! I’ve never had Eggplant Parmesan before + was really surprised how much I liked it…. even though the recipe misrepresented the cooking time. Not to leave out the cookies this week… they are really tasty! They turned out really light + fluffy even though the picture made them look more like a chewy cookie. Without further adieu… here they are:
Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes via Food Network ~ we added about a 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese to these as well. They were also a huge hit at last year’s Thanksgiving dinner.
White Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Cookies via Tasty Kitchen ~ mmmm I want one now!
Herb Omelet with Cherry Tomatoes via Gordon Ramsay’s Healthy Appetite
Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins via Gordon Ramsay’s Healthy Appetitie
Eggplant Parmesan via Food Network ~ be forewarned, the recipe states 1 hr + 20 mins total time, but it will take you more like 2 hours.
My weekend in photos…
Hope you had a great weekend!
This week it is all about cinnamon + sugar. Probably the best combination there is out there. Agreed?
Cinnamon Sugar Bagels with a Cinnamon Sugar Glaze via Food Coma ~ I use Emma’s basic bagel ingredients + then insert my own add ins
Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies via Picky Palate ~ I opted not to include the cream cheese frosting… frosting does me in.
Stuffed Chicken Breast wrapped in Sage + Prosciutto via Gordon Ramsay’s Healthy Appetite ~ The lone dinner that Husby + I made this past week. I can’t say either of us were a fan of prosciutto… or maybe it was the brand I bought… but the rest of it was great!
This week I’ve got two dinners + two desserts for you to try. I’m trying to slow down my baking until I can round up some more friends to take them… or at least switch over to baked goods that can be shipped! I never thought it would be so hard to get baked desserts out of the house, but husby + I just don’t eat them often enough to keep up with it all.
Chicken Gyros via Annie’s Eats ~ instead of stuffing into a pita, I used naan bread as a substitute. Tastes amazing, but be prepared to start 24 hours before you want to eat to prepare the tzatziki sauce.
Coconut Macaroon Nutella Nests via Two Peas & Their Pod
Mini Whiskey Oatmeal Cream Pies via Food Plus Words ~ I used Cabin Fever, a maple flavored whiskey in this recipe. They taste exactly like the pre-packaged oatmeal cream pies with a kick of booze!
