Things I’ve Been Enjoying (And Eating)

Pinteresting Recipes

The past few weeks have seen a smattering of new recipes showing up on the menu. I have to say, they have all been quite delicious, making me even more excited to go down the rabbit hole that is Pinterest.

The Hubster has even been getting in on the recipe hunting fun, and is the reason that Buffalo Falafel are in my life. It’s a good thing we’re already married, because that’s the sort of thing that would make me want to marry him on the spot.

We’ve made 3 out of the 5 recipes on this list, so can honestly say that they are delicious. The other two are on the menu for this week. Y-U-M.

  1. Vegetable Pakoras via Easy Indian Recipes
    I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with Indian food. I’ve often found the spices to be a bit full on for me, or the things I would enjoy are made with yogurt. I’m not really sure why I suddenly wanted these, but alas, I did. And holy crap were they good. Since that inaugural attempt, we’ve had them several times since, and adding in different veggie combinations for a bit of fun.
  2. Buffalo Falafel via Thug Kitchen
    I’m pretty sure y’all are going to revoke my foodie card when I admit this, but this is the first recipe I’ve made from Thug Kitchen. I mean, I’ve known about them and followed them for yearssss, but never wanted to make anything. What the fuck is wrong with me (sorry, channeling my inner Thug)?! I seriously think this is my favorite food on the planet right now. I didn’t want to stop eating them. Do yourself a favor and make them, pronto. (For my nightshade sensitive friends, I am SO SORRY.)
  3. Thai Beef, Vegetable, and Basil Stir-Fry via Fuss Free Cooking
    The Hubster has been on a Thai Beef kick as of late. The first variation we tried was with ground beef. It was good, just not a huge fan of the whole ground beef texture with the flavors. So we went on the hunt for a different recipe, and found this one. If you’re into beef, this is delicious. I’m sure it would be equally as tasty with chicken.  Or tempeh, if you’re into that kind of thing.
  4. Sriracha Ramen Noodle Soup via Baker by Nature
    We’ve been on a sriracha kick since our initial foray into Thai Beef. I’m pretty sure I was just about to try sriracha when I was first diagnosed with a nightshade sensitivity. Five years later, I got to try it for the first time. Now, I want to cook it in everything. This ramen noodle soup was no exception. Can’t wait to try this one out!
  5. Apple Pie Bread via Pip & Ebby
    And because no Pinterest exploration is complete without at least one dessert tickling your fancy, I had to include this apple pie bread. Looks delicious, right?
