Food Love

Yes . . . it is February and yes . . . I am going to share the more romantic side of me this month for a change. It starts with this post—food that I am craving right now. You know, the kind of food that you drool over and can’t wait to take a bite out of.

What’s your food love?

Back to “Normal Food”

It feels like it has been FOREVER since I have eaten what I would consider a “normal” meal. I have had family from out-of-town, the holidays, parties, and long nights at the office that turned my regular eating habits upside down.

Now I am trying to ease myself back into the habit of cooking meals at home and preparing food for the work week. Here are 5 recipes that I am going to try in the next couple of weeks.

  1. Skinny Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes from Not Enough Cinnamon 
  2. Salsa Fresca Chicken from Easy Family Recipes 
  3. High-Protein Avocado Chicken Salad from Beauty Bites 
  4. Farro Bowls with Figs, Kale & French Goat Cheese from Feasting at Home 
  5. Greek Power Bowls from Delish

Christmas Work Party

While we don’t do the large full company Christmas party, we do have a smaller party in my department and this year we have opted to have disco pajama party. I am kind of excited about it being super relaxed. We are having breakfast catered but we are individually bringing in appetizers for lunch. Now I can’t decide what to bring! Do any of you have some helpful suggestions? Here are the top 5 that I am trying to decide between.

  1. Caprese Salad Skewers from Stuck on Sweet 
  2. Rattlesnake Bites from Torn a Dough Alli 
  3. Hot Crab Dip from Serena Bakes Simply from Scratch
  4. Cherry Pecan Brie from Southern Living 
  5. Pomegranate Guacamole from Two Peas and Their Pod 

The Comfort of Soup and Bread

I grew up in a house where we ate soup but it wasn’t a crowd pleaser (my Dad didn’t like soup) so it wasn’t made with any kind of frequency. As an adult—I just love soup!! I usually get in trouble because I make too much of it but I am always open to sharing. Soup is so versatile, such a chameleon in the food world that you can never go wrong. It ranks right up there with my second love of sandwiches.

Now that the weather has turned cooler, I find myself looking at more and more soup recipes and (of course) the bread that needs to go with it. (Let’s be honest for a second—you can’t have soup without something to dip into it!) Here are 5 recipes that I am looking forward to making in the months ahead.

  1. Asian Chicken Noodle Soup from Delish with Classic French Baguette from Mrs. P’s Kitchen 
  2. Vegetable Barley Soup from Hello Little Home with Rosemary Thyme No-Knead Dutch Oven Bread from Pinch Me, I’m Eating 
  3. Nonna’s Italian Style Chicken Noodle Soup from 4 Sons R Us with Garlic Mozzarella Dippers from Cooking TV 
  4. Quick Chicken Pho from Simply Recipes with (I wouldn’t dip anything in my Pho but if you want something extra . . .) Bahn Mi Sandwich from Food People Want  
  5. Signature Spicy, Smoky, Sweet Chili from Iowa Girl Eats with Buttery Sweet Corn Bread from Norine’s Nest
