As I’ve been in the kitchen quite a lot recently, I thought I’d pass along some recipes that have turned out as delicious success stories as well as some pics I’ve taken lately while out and about with my camera phone.
Ok, first some Vegan Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Cookies. These took a bit of time to put together, but nothing too difficult by any means and the results were yummy. Thanks to MAC & CHEESE, I got the recipe here
Here’s my picture of the finished product:
My next recent success comes from the gang at Martha Stewart. I bought the Everyday Food: Great Food Fast cookbook (you can buy/look at the cookbook here) atleast a year ago and have only recently started using recipes from it. I made their Tortilla and Black Bean Pie, and since I’m not a fan of black beans, I substituted pinto beans instead. I also used an ale as my beer choice. You can find the recipe on page 236 of the cookbook or online here
My BF loved this dish and I thought it was both original and economical. We will certainly be making this again as we both loved the flavors of it too!
For the side dish, we made Spanish Rice and an excellent recipe for it can be found at Simply Recipes, an excellent food blog/website that I’ve been using for quite some time now. Elise’s Spanish Rice recipe is again not only economical in this day and age, but also very delicious! I’ll never go back to using pre-made packages of it when it’s so much better and healthier for me to just make it myself. You can find the recipe here. Add some sour cream and salsa on the side, and you’ve got yourself an excellent meal that’ll easily feed 4 adults for very little money.
And now, some more foodie photos taken with my camera phone:
And since I can’t seem to get rid of the tortilla pie or vegan cookies pictures in this section, you get to see them again! I’m still new to blogging, so bear with me–think of it as doubling your photographic viewing pleasure. Ha ha.
