December 16: Stirfry & Pancake

Wow it’s mid-December and there was a big snowstorm here yesterday (but many other areas were affected too), so it is really feeling like the holidays now. Chanukah starts on Sunday so I am very excited about that, can’t wait to eat some latkes! I didn’t think I would have much to post this week…

Weekly Roundup: Pancakes & Chickpea Salad

Happy Friday, hope your week was a good one! My week was busy again but I did manage to get a couple dishes to post about! – White Chocolate & Walnut Pancakes: I love pancakes. My family always makes the recipe from the Good Housekeeping cookbook, it is a straightforward recipe and always comes out…

Brussels Sprout Hash

I’ve never bought Brussels sprouts before because they just seem extra hard to clean well. They also seem to have quite a bad reputation for some reason. I love cabbage so I don’t know why I never made the leap to these babies. Anyways, I’m giving them a shot today with this Brussels Sprout Hash…

Cowboy Scramble

Continuing right along with breakfast recipes, we have made it to the second last one of the section in the Brave New Meal cookbook. This recipe is called the cowboy scramble. There are a lot of components that go into this scramble. There are potatoes, a variety of vegetables, tofu (to replace eggs), and there…

Pumpkin Scones

I know it’s the middle of February, but there’s nothing wrong with baking with fall flavours! These are Pumpkin Scones. I mean, I didn’t choose this recipe, I’m just continuing along in the Brave New Meal cookbook. But I love pumpkin and fall spices so I have no complaints here. Right off the bat, I…

Whatever Grain Porridge

Like I mentioned in my last post (Blackberry Sage Oat Bars) I love everything to do with oats and oatmeal. So this recipe, being a porridge with oats, along with other grains, was exciting to me. Right off the bat though, this reminded me of the recipe I made back in the Yum & Yummer…

Blackberry Sage Oat Bars

You already know I love oats and oatmeal so making oat-based bars is also right up my alley. These are the Blackberry Sage Oat Bars from the Brave New Meal cookbook. Right off the bat, I could see this recipe is similar to the blueberry thyme preserves from a few recipes back, where it has…

Buckwheat Persimmon Pancakes

I feel like with each recipe I make from this Brave New Meal cookbook, I am using a new ingredient. I think that’s pretty awesome. Today’s recipe is these Persimmon Buckwheat Pancakes and the new ingredient here is the buckwheat flour. I have eaten soba noodles before which is made with buckwheat flour but I…

Breakfast Spaghetti

The writers of this cookbook keep trying to change the game and they’ve done it with this recipe. This is breakfast spaghetti. Yes you read that right – spaghetti for breakfast. I think the thought process behind this recipe was that it would be pasta combined with some of the classic things that you would…

Tofu Scramble

I love eggs. I could probably eat them any day of the week, sorry everyday of the week. Scrambled, over easy sunny, hard boiled, whatever. I’ll eat them. So today’s recipe was quite a twist. I had seen recipes for tofu scrambles before and for whatever reason I just never made it, but today I…
