True to my declaration that I was going to get back in the kitchen and a little more creative with my eats again, I spent the quite a lot of time cooking and baking this weekend.
Here’s a look at some of the things that came out of my kitchen…sweet and savory!
Saturday I made homemade granola bars. Ever since I received the sample pack of Hungry Bars from Emily, I have been all about homemade granola bars. I don’t even want prepackaged bars anymore. These bars are no bake and only took me about 15 minutes to assemble. They are awesome and I will post the recipe this week!
Saturday night dinner was homemade pizza. Whole wheat pizza dough with marinara, spicy chicken sausage, artichokes, cherry tomatoes, portobello mushrooms and mozzarella cheese. Pizza night is my favorite!
This afternoon I baked blondies with white chocolate chips and a Nutella cream cheese swirl. These were also super simple to put together. I didn’t even have to get the mixer out. I’ll also be sharing the recipe for these this week!
I had a butternut squash that needed to be used so off I went to Pinterest for inspiration on what to do with it. I decided on butternut squash lasagna that I kind of made up as I went.
I roasted the squash and then layered it with a ricotta/cottage cheese/spinach mixture, goat cheese and noodles. I topped it all with mozzarella cheese. It turned out pretty well but it’s not recipe-share worthy. I’ll definitely still enjoy the leftovers this week though.
And then how can you have freshly baked blondies on hand and not top them with ice cream? Dessert tonight was a blondie with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. A perfect end to a great weekend.
Did you cook anything new, different or just extra delicious this weekend?
