Roasted Beet and Quinoa Salad

Beet and quinoa salad with wilted spinach

This is another recipe from Thug Kitchen.  I told you I was intrigued by the recipes that I found in this cookbook.  Now don’t just assume that the entire collection of recipes from Thug Kitchen only uses quinoa.  I just happen to have a lot of quinoa in our pantry, so when I see a recipe that calls for it, I know that is one thing I don’t have to go to the grocery store for.

Quinoa Oatmeal

Quinoa Oatmeal in bowl with fruit and brown sugar

Jamie and I received a new cookbook for Christmas – Thug Kitchen.  I had never heard of them before, but I got an awakening when I started flipping through the cookbook and saw that it was peppered with profanity and cursing.  This doesn’t bother me, but I had never seen a cookbook written in this manner before.  Needless to say, it caught my attention.

Candy Cane Sugar Cookies

Cookies on a present

With the holiday season in full swing, it is time to think about Christmas baking. I know a lot of people have already started….but the problem I have with starting early, is that Jamie and I raid the freezer of our sweet treats, and we end up having to bake twice as much!

Beef and Pepper Stir-Fry

 Beef with green and red peppers and snow peas on a bed of pasta on a white plate

This is likely my favourite recipe out of the New Dieters Cookbook. My sister was actually the first person who made it. I remember it was so good I asked for seconds (and likely thirds). Then the next time I was over for a visit, I asked her to make it again. Yep, it is that good!

Mushroom Stuffed Turkey Cutlets

 

Grilled Turkey Cutlet Stuffed with Mushrooms

Stuffed Turkey Cutlet cut in half to see mushrooms

This is the second recipe that I submitted to Turkey Farmers of Canada and Mushrooms Canada for their #GrillOn Summer promotion. You will remember that the first recipe I made for them was the Turkey Mushroom Sausage.

I knew that I wanted to make something stuffed for this promotion. I actually wanted to make a roulade, but that didn’t turn out too well. It tasted great, but it didn’t slice or photograph very well. I am not sure if my knife wasn’t sharp enough, but it ended up looking like a turkey mushroom casserole instead of a beautiful roulade 🙂

Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

 

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin

My favourite muffin to make is Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip. I have been making this muffin for years. I change it up from time to time, omitting the chocolate chips for fruit, but let’s admit it, we all want that little bit of chocolate in our muffin to make it feel like a bit of a treat 😉

I’m taking a BB*

*Blog Break

After a bit of an inner struggle, I have decided to take a few weeks off from blogging.  I need to take some time to find new recipes and re-charge my batteries.  I have been busy training for a 5km Spartan Sprint in mid-June, and because of this, I haven’t been spending a lot of time experimenting with new recipes.  My diet has consisted of salads and eggs, and that really isn’t exciting enough to share.
