My Favorite Recipes

July 8, 2018

ALRIGHT - this one's for all my food-lovers out there. From sweet to savory, I've learned something from my many, many days of messing up in the kitchen.

 

 

And I'm here to help you make a delicious breakfast or a mouth-watering dessert without setting the stove on fire. (hopefully.)

Breakfast

Pancakes:

There's definetly that one (two, three, six ...) time you went to flip a pancake and it just ... became a mushy lump of batter instead, right? Well, I've tried exactly 16 pancake recipes in the past three months, and I found one that's just perfect.

 

I found the recipe on TheStayAtHomeChef.com, which has TONS of other delicious and easy recipes. Check out the pancake one here.

 

(And no, this is not a promo.)

 

Crepe-Cakes:

Remember when I accidentally came up with a delicious cross-over between crepes and pancakes? Yeah, I made that recipe about six times since then and every time it turned out DELICIOUS!

 

And like I promised, it's super easy and quick to make. You can practically do no wrong! Click here to check it out.

 

Greek Yoghurt Mix:

If you're opting for a healthier choice, greek yoghurt is perfect. I personally hate the taste of it, but with the right ingredients, it's actually not that bad!

 

So there's a honey recipe here, but if you're more into fruits, a berry mix that I loved is here. Just scroll through Pinterest and Google Images and trust me, you'll find mixtures you'll adore.

Lunch/Dinner

Pizza Mac & Cheese:

I'm pretty much addicted to watching Tastemade videos on Snapchat. I also remember how much I loved watching Julie Nolke's especially (mostly because she was fun to watch.)

 

I made this comfort food combo twice before, and every time that I did my family loved it. (Considering I'm the kitchen disaster that I am!) Check it out here, along with Julie's many other recipes!

 

Fettuccine Alfredo:

My favorite Italian dish (after pizza obviously) is this creamy pasta. And the fact that I can do it with minimal dish-washing and ingredients made me love it even more.

 

Like most of the recipes I follow, I got this one from AllRecipes.com - you'll find the Fettuccine Alfredo recipe here. I recommend you check then out from YouTube instead since it's easier to watch and follow than read. Whatever suits you best though.

 

Vegetarian Lasagna:

If you've met mom, you know how much she cares about being healthy and including vegetables in most, if not all recipes she makes. (Love you, mother!)

 

Which is why she made this vegetarian lasagna recipe once, and even my sister (who may I say HATES vegetables) liked! If you're a vegetarian (or a mom. Though I don't understand why a mom would be reading my blog ...) this recipe is definetly a great one.

Dessert

Brownie Oreo Cookies:

So you've most likely seen this recipe tons of times online. If you haven't, let me tell you it's a FABULOUS recipe that only calls for three main .. things?

 

Alright, so after lining a cupcake tray with cupcake paper (wrapper, cups, liners; whatever you call it) just fill it 1/3 with chocolate chip cookie dough. You could use box mix or a recipe you like, it's all up to you really.

 

After that, add one Oreo on top of the cookie dough. Then add brownie mixture (I prefer Betty Crocker box mix, but you can use your own) and fill the liners about 3/4 full.

 

Pop it in the oven according to the instructions on the brownie package and voila! You're done!

 

Rocky Road:

One of the easiest dessert recipes ever known to mankind. All you need is 315g of tea biscuits (I use Marie), 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, 3 tbsp vegetable oil, and 1 can of Nestle sweetened condensed milk.

 

First break up the biscuits with your hands; don't grind them finely or leave too big pieces. Next, mix the oil and cocoa powder, then add the milk. After that, pour the biscuits into the cocoa mixture and mix it well (use your hands!) Lastly, set it on aluminum foil and shape it into a log before covering it completely with the foil. Let it sit overnight in the fridge, then cut it into discs and serve!

My go-to websites for recipes and last-minute ideas are usually Tastemade, Tasty, Twisted, and SoYummy - all on Instagram, as well as AllRecipes on YouTube. What's your favorite recipe? Share it in the comments below!

 

And until next time! Stay tuned because next week, I'll be posting about something that's very, very important ...

 

... sexism.
