a few of my favorite recipes (round 2)

It’s been a while since I have done “a few of my favorite recipes”, so I thought it was time to link up and share with you a few yummy things I have been cooking in the kitchen. So with my “work buddy” conked out next to me and a pumpkin candle all lit, I think we are ready to rumble.

EllaBethThis is one of my favorite things to eat right now: chipotle chicken soup! It’s got a bit of a kick to it and it’s loaded with flavor! Also, a few other bonuses… it can be made in the crockpot AND it makes for some great left overs. We have served it over noodles, rice, and all by it’s lonesome and we have loved it each time. I love it with some avocados served up on top or even some guacamole. MMM.

 

Next up, FOOD HACK: whole foods power cookies. These yummy power cookies have become a staple in our house. They are super versatile and I love that you can pack them full of yummy and nutritious foods. They are easy on the run and freeze great. They make a big batch and we freeze half in individual ziplock bags so we can grab them on the go. We eat them for breakfast, as a snack, or even dessert. You can’t go wrong. Yummy.

 

Have I told you I like Kale? And in almost every form? It’s true. I think it’s super yummy and I love all the nutrients packed into its little leaves. But for those of you who aren’t so fond of it… please don’t give up on it until you AT LEAST try it like this… Quick and Simple Stir-Fried Kale and Bacon. That’s right folks, I’m telling you to eat your veggies enveloped in Bacon. It’s oh so delicious!

 

Okay, Last up… Paleo Meatball Subs! This is my go-to Meatball recipe. It’s so fresh and yummy every time. I’ve never made the “buns” but I love these meatballs and sauce all by themselves served up with some roasted veggies. They are great over pasta or even in some bread smothered in garlic butter and cheese. However you want to eat them, they are delish.

 

Avocado Chicken Lime Soup… I make this for our first day of preschool! Aa is for Avocado. It had great flavor and is for sure going on our regular rotation. It was a BIG hit with everyone. There were no left overs in sight.

 

Also for preschool I made Mini Pumpkin Pie Tarts. They were fall in a dessert. Perfect pumpkiny flavor and loaded with spices. I love the almond crust too, but I am a sucker for almond meal. Be sure to give them a try soon. They are sure to not disapoint.

 

Hope you find a few of these to be helpful and yummy too.
