Foodie Finds | Aug 31

Hi and happy Wednesday! It’s another installment of my new weekly food post in which I share my favorite food blogs and recipes that inspire my weekly menu! This week I’m leaning more in a healthy direction and sharing some of my favorite meals for when my husband and I are looking to detox from the fun we indulged in the weekend before – such as the yummy catered BBQ we had for Greyson’s dedication after-party! #noregrets

Onto the links…

Iowa Girl Eats – I love Kristin’s food blog because it’s health centered and all of her recipes have gluten-free ingredients! I just love her fish taco recipe with the sweet corn and avocado slaw and that white sauce! Even after we finished eating the tacos I ate the slaw as a side to many other dishes! Another great way to eat this recipe is as a tostada! My husband came up with the idea of frying the corn tortillas and placing the taco filling on top and OMG delicious!

Inspired Taste – This food blog is run by a husband-wife team who bring from scratch meals straight to your kitchen! I love a good meatloaf and this recipe for using turkey, which is a lean protein (i.e. doesn’t have as much fatty goodness), and incorporating mushrooms of all things to keep the meat moist is so neat! It’s a great recipe that offers a healthier alternative to traditional meatloaf which uses beef.

Annie’s Eats – Another great healthy food blog is right here at Annie’s Eats. Her recipe for Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Muffins were to die for and a great protein and energy boost for the morning. And if you’re looking for baby food inspiration her homemade recipes look easy to make, which is perfect for any new mom!

Foodie Finds | Aug 24

Strozzapreti with Oxtail Ragu and Horseradish Crumbs | Cottage Pie | Spaghetti Carbonara

Happy hump-day everyone and welcome to the second week of my new Foodie Finds series where I share with you my favorite food blogs that inspire my kitchen each week and the recipes you can find there! I just love food and over the years I’ve had a lot of fun honing my skills in the kitchen right along next to my husband (it’s kind of our thing). So, get comfy and I hope you find some inspiration from these great fellow foodies!


Bon Appetit Magazine – I love this magazine subscription because not only are there great recipe ideas, but some pretty great articles and featured restaurants. One of my favorite recipes from BA that we have tried more than once is this recipe for Spicy Fried Chicken Sandwiches and Strozzapreti with Oxtail Ragu and Horseradish Crumbs (photo above). The oxtail just falls off the bone and the savory broth will have you looking for french bread to soak it up with.

Gimme Some Oven – Ali is the food blog goddess over at Gimme Some Oven and you can pretty much find anything of hers all over Pinterest. You could seriously blindly click somewhere on her blog and find a new and delicious recipe to try. Some of my personal favorites include Baked Eggplant Parmesan, White Chicken Enchilada Casserole, and I just stumbled upon this Crab and Avocado Enchilada recipe that has me watering at the mouth.

Little Broken – Katya has a great food blog and if you’re looking for a delicious (and easy to prepare) weeknight fish recipe this Artichoke and Spinach Roasted Salmon is filling and the cream cheese with the artichokes and fresh spinach makes the topping so creamy and delicious. Salmon is an easy fish to cook and I am always looking for new ways to prepare it. Oh, and these Coconut Peach Muffins look absolutely divine and if you’re looking for a recap of her most popular recipes of 2015 check out her list here.

Dinner, Then Dessert – Sabrina is a private cook and fellow foodie who is behind the screen at Dinner, Then Dessert. Her Halal Cart Middle Eastern Chicken and Rice is perfect for scratching that middle eastern cuisine itch – especially since we don’t have a restaurant near us. It was surprisingly easy to do and I love a good sauce and the Greek yogurt based sauce is so yummy I could put it on anything. And before you leave her page you should check out her awesome index for copycat recipes. I’m most looking forward to try her Panda Express Shanghai Angus Steak.

Have you tried any recipes from these food blogs? Which are your favorite?
