What a week! Unfortunately I was a little under the weather this week, which did not allow much time in the kitchen. The little guy was also mister no nap or short nap, which also did not allow much time in the kitchen. We do have some exciting news though. We accepted an offer on our house! Exciting indeed, but.....you guessed it....did not allow much time in the kitchen. Can you detect the theme of this week's recap? It is not my favorite theme by any means, and I plan to rectify this unfortunate circumstance this weekend by tackling a long list of tasty treats. In the meantime, let's recap the week.
This past week I shared with you:
Who doesn't love pumpkin these days. The warm spices and molasses give these muffins a little pizzaz. With flax and oats, they are healthy too!
The layers of black beans, cheese and lots of vegetables make this casserole like a Mexican lasagna. Easy to make, healthy and delicious!
I'm pretty sure that Fall recipes are my favorite...and there are so many good ones, it is hard to choose what to feature. Here are a few recipes that caught my eye this week:
Gingerbread Muffins with Lemon Glaze from Kitchenarian - This sounds like a heavenly way to start the day. I love gingerbread this time of year, and the lemon glaze would be the perfect complement. Delicious!
Apple Cheesecake from Dainty Chef - I've been craving cheesecake lately, and this looks like the perfect cheesecake for fall. Such beautiful pictures too!
Cookies and Creme Oreo Cake from Sunny Side Up in San Diego - This cake looks AMAZING. The layers, the cookies, the chocolate,....it's the perfect showstopper.
Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili from Blog is the New Black - I love all things sweet potatoes. What a great idea to add them to black bean chili. I am very excited to try this chili recipe!
Baked Mozzarella Sticks from Cats and Casseroles - Mozzarella sticks made wrapped in egg roll wrappers is a healthy alternative to their breaded and fried counterparts. What a great idea!
That's all folks. Have a great weekend!
