We lived the past few years with my husband's family and for various reasons I did not do much cooking during this time period. It has been and will continue to be an interesting journey as I jump back into full time cooking. This means I might be focusing quite a few posts on my adventures in the kitchen and the recipes I find, try, and like from around the web.
To get things started, I thought I would share with you the following two recipes:
I ran into Kimberly's blog the other evening when I was trying to figure out what to make this week. I decided to try my hand at the falafel sandwiches because we had extra tzatziki sauce left over from a previous meal. I have only had falafel one other time so I don't have much to compare this meal to but the hubby and I did enjoy it. I wish the falafel was a bit less crumbly but it wasn't that big of a deal. It tasted delicious, was a decently healthy meal, and super easy to make. This is a recipe I plan on using again.
101 Cookbooks is a blog I recently discovered while searching for blogs that focused on whole foods. The hubby and I love Italian food so I thought I would try out Heidi's recipe for stuffed shells. Considering the sauce is made from scratch, I thought the ingredients list was pretty short which I liked. The recipe was easy to follow and the ingredients were easy to find. I also took Heidi's advise from the comments section and froze the extra shells. I just stuffed them, put them on a plate and froze them a bit, before putting them in doubled zip lock bags.
I think if I were to make this again I would either add more lemon to the recipe or add something to make it a bit more spicy. The hubby and I have really weak taste buds from all the hot foods we eat. Overall though, I enjoyed the meal and can see myself using this recipe again and again.
