what i am eating

I love cooking and eating, and I especially love looking at pictures of food!  If you love food as much as I do, please add your food pictures/recipes/food related posts to the linky below.  All you have to do is link back to this blog post.  I look forward to seeing what everyone else is eating this week!

This week has been really good in terms of food for me!  We have been eating many new recipes thanks to the very cool Whole Food Kitchen workshop that I am taking right now.  Usually, when I take any type of food workshop, I tend to only make a few of the recipes, the ones that really look amazing to me, and then try to work them into my normal routine.  But, all of the recipes from this workshop have been incredibly appealing to me.

curried quinoa cakes with red pepper tahini sauce

Maybe it is because I have changed my thinking so much about vegan foods, maybe I am looking to replace more refined oils with nuts and seeds.  Whatever the reason, I have been making new things pretty much every day.

I have to say that they are all recipes my family has loved as well, and that is something that makes me even happier.  When I make a new thing, a lot of the time I get the trepidation about new flavors, or different ingredients they have never seen before.  But with this workshop, there are videos each week, and my kids watch the videos with me, and we make the recipes together.

Don't think it has all been healthy though.  I saw a recipe for cinnamon rolls on my walk with eden, and that made me need to immediately whip up a batch of cinnamon rolls - I used her filling recipe, but I used the dough recipe that I have had since my home economics class way back in Junior High :-)  They were delicious and quick!

  1. Good for you for trying so many new things, especially really different things!
    P.S. I don't see the "linky" thing to link up my post.

    1. Were you able to see the linky? I looked and I can see it, so I am not sure why it isn't working for you. I will check with linky tools to see if I can figure out why it isn't working!

  7. I love that bone broth is showing up more & more often in these link-ups. There are 2 of us featuring a recipe this week. In addition, I've added my favorite simple & delicious way to prepare kale (the super-veggie! I feel like it needs a cape, it's so nutritious.)
