I am currently sitting here perfectly content after a fun-filled morning of making a Christmas breakfast and giving and opening presents with my family. I tried out some Oatmeal-Almond waffles, which were delicious, (post to come) and my brother made some yummy monster omelets!
I last posted about the Spinach and Brown Rice Casserole at the dinner party and promised the other recipes. In addition to the casserole, we put together a Butternut Squash Polenta bake and I loved the colors in this dish. The squash, polenta and basil combined to make a very aesthetically pleasing addition to the table.
My friend, Rebecca, and I made dinner for some friends, marking my first dinner party here in Austin! Since leaving Los Angeles, I have really missed cooking and having friends over. It was amazing to cook and spend more time with some of girls I have met here! Plus, everyone chipped in with the cooking! 🙂
I am obsessed. I can’t. stop. eating. these. I’m not sure what it is. Between the chewy texture, hearty taste, salty flavor, thin-ness of the noodles and intriguing color- I can't resist. They were so good that I ended up eating half of the batch before I even tossed it with a sauce or seasoning. Now I'm probably building them up (I always do that) but really, you need to try!
I think I just made the best thing I've ever made. I know I say a lot of things are delicious, but this was phenomenal. I got this recipe from Eat, Live, Run and wow, this is going in my permanent recipe book… for life.
They were so hearty, garlic-y and had a great kick with the jalapeño . These black bean burgers are extremely healthy and vegetarian friendly. The recipe calls for all natural ingredients and I only slightly panfried the patties. I am not a vegetarian and I promise, even non-vegs will love this!
