I meant to post this yesterday but I was actually trying to be a good student and try to get my homework done ahead of time. I can't wait until I'm done. One more year, one more year.
This week, I found so many recipes I wanted to attempt. Luckily, my friend Anna shared a copy of her Dessert Magazine. I tried very hard to copy each recipe. If you have a chance to pick it up, I would. This focused on Asian ingredients like matcha.
This week Healthy Delicious shared a wonderful potato salad recipe that did not include mayo. Yes, you heard me right. No mayo. Instead of using mayo, she used Greek yogurt. What a nifty way to reduce the amount of fat and still enjoy potato salad.
Food Practice shared a nice twist to pesto. She was trying to clean out her fridge and decided to create a new recipe. I know that feeling. I have been trying to work through my freezer and pantry for months. This week she created a pistachio cranberry pesto. I am so used to pine nuts but this a nice change to the norm.
When I was in Miami, I had the pleasure of trying some Venezuelan food. One of the dishes I tried was Arepas. I have been craving that since. I was catching up on the various blogs on FoodBuzz and the Village Cook posted a Arepas recipe. I was so excited. I can't wait to try this.
Lately, I had this love affair with goat cheese and figs. When How Sweet Eats posted a goat cheese and honey stuffed fig muffin, I had to copy down this recipe. I liked how she incorporated olive oil. I have been searching for some good recipes that utilize olive oils in sweets.
