hi y'all! This smoothie recipe is the result of another fun recipe swap club challenge. If you haven't followed along with my swap posts in the past it is a food blogger network where I am challenged monthly to recreate a recipe from a fellow foodie and give it a try. I have so much fun with this each month because it gives me new inspiration and recipes to write up for you that I may not have gotten to otherwise! This month I worked from Simply Made Recipes, a blog written by a husband and wife duo who love to cook together and work to bring their audience easy and affordable recipes and decided to give their protein packed strawberry vanilla smoothie a try.
hi y'all! Some of my favorite recipes I make tend to be a mix of what I have in the kitchen that needs used up ... it's amazing the creativity that sparks when you're feeling lazy. I had some leftover mozzarella and pesto from the naan flatbread I made last week (so yummy) and had my eye on these totally delicious pretzel buns the bakery had made up so sliders it was. I know these aren't anything super complex but they were so darn good. I can't believe I hadn't tried this combo before. I got a "you will totally need to make these for us again" from my man which is always the tell tale sign that the recipe was a winner. We ate these up for dinner but they would be a great party appetizer, barbecue addition, or game day recipe to serve. Enjoy!
Making a naan bread pizza has been on my dinner to do list for ages now. I'm so glad I finally bit the bullet and made it because oh my god is it good. If you are unfamiliar with naan it is a fluffy (almost pita like) flat bread very popular in Indian, Persian, and some Asian cuisines. It's so good on it's own, but due to how nice and flat it is it really makes a great pizza crust as well! If you've followed along with any of my previous posts you may know that I totally have a thing for pesto, so a pesto flatbread it was. I added on some fresh spinach & mozzarella and a little Gorgonzola cheese and bacon bits to add in some bolder flavor which really complimented the pesto and mozzarella base. It turned out so yummy, I hope you enjoy!
These savory breakfast muffins are the product of another delicious and successful recipe swap club month. This month I worked from EAT what we EAT which is a great blog highlighting recipes that are easy, and family friendly. I chose to make their breakfast muffin recipe for two reasons. One, because the latest breakfast post I did has been a total hit, I mean y'all seem to really love breakfast! Two, because they looked downright delicious, I mean c'mon who doesn't love a good cheesy breakfast?! I made these up on Superbowl Sunday for a pre-game brunch and they were a total hit. Another great bonus? They are super easy, like anyone can do this easy. You brown up some sausage, mix in some pancake mix and eggs, and then load them up with cheese and let the oven do the cookin'. Are you sold yet? Let's get to it!
If you love following all the latest healthy food trends there is two words you need to know. Buddha Bowl. They're really just a fancy protein bowl but it is so much for fun if it's trendy and called a Buddha bowl, right?! I decided to hop on the bandwagon and give one a try... so yummy and I felt so good about calling this my meal. This bowl is packed with protein, greens, and healthy grains and consists of seared ahi tuna (super easy to do, I promise), raw spinach, brown rice, quinoa, avocado, sesame seeds, and an easy to whip up soy ginger wasabi vinaigrette. While this Buddha bowl was super yummy there is endless options for putting one together. I personally can't wait to come up with some new ones! See below to find out your mix and match options!
Ever heard of cajun garlic bread? Nope? Neither had I. I was making cajun shrimp to go over pasta the other day and decided to turn my garlic bread into cajun seasoned garlic bread just for the hell of it. This is such a simple post but I had to share with you guys because it turned out so yummy! I got a stern "you better save the rest of that bread" from my guy as we started to clean up dinner, always a tell tale sign that the recipe of the night was a good one. I mean what's not to like about anything involving butter, bread, cheese, and some good seasoning? I know this will become a staple dinner addition whenever I cook up a cajun style meal. I hope y'all enjoy!
I know I say this a lot, but I am seriously so excited about this post in particular. 2016 has been a great year as Simply Delish Eats came to life in April and I feel like I've come so far with this whole food blogging thing in eight short months. I think Santa realized what a passion blogging has become for me and decided to bring me a professional camera for Christmas. Finally I have a nice camera, I can't even tell y'all how excited I am!!! I am beyond grateful to all of you for being here and cannot wait to kick off 2017 with better images and upgraded content.... starting with this totally delicious cajun baked shrimp. I had a hard time deciding what my first post would be testing out the camera, I don't know why I landed on cajun shrimp but it just sounded so good and so here we are. I hope y'all love it as much as I did! Happy almost New Year!
hi y'all! I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season. I know I am- this is my favorite time of the year! The only downside is my schedule gets so crazy I don't have nearly as much time to cook and blog as I would like to so I'm so excited to finally be getting this recipe up for y'all. As you may have seen from previous posts I participate in a monthly recipe swap club where I select another blogger's recipe to try out and share with all of you. I'm having so much fun being a part of this club as I get to expand my network and share extra recipes with you that I may not have thought of myself! This month I worked from Mom Noms blog. I truly loved reading through mom noms because fun fact: she is also a bay area based foodie! Hey neighbor! I had a hard time selecting what I wanted to make but I eventually landed on her bacon mac & cheese recipe because let's get real, I could always use more bacon and cheese in my life.
Yes, that's right, I said overnight breakfast. You know what that means? You get to wake up, pop this in the oven & serve a great breakfast with zero morning time prep work. It is so easy to put this together the day or night before you want to bake it and get all your prep work and dishes out of the way so you can just enjoy your morning. I particularly love this recipe for holiday mornings. You've got enough to worry about on holidays like focusing on your main meal of the day and spending time with family so anything you can do the day before is always helpful! I also love overnight breakfasts because let's be honest, if you're having any sort of party out or at your house, a stress free comfort food breakfast will be real nice to wake up to, especially if you had one too many cocktails the night before. Whatever your occassion this is sure to be a family favorite.... I mean what's not too love about cheesy egg & potato all combined together?!
