winter eats

Monday, February 22, 2016

cozy comfort trying-to-be healthy foods -- winter eating in a nutshell.  I love to cook and bake and eat, embracing each seasons ingredients fully.  Here is just a taste{haha, get it?} of what we've been making and eating this winter.

healthy
ham and white bean soup || red enchilada sauce +slow cooker enchilada soup || no-bake peanut butter dog treats || Thai sweet potato curry || beer brats with grilled asparagus & mini peppers || ham & egg cups || mixed Berry Vanilla snack bars || Cashew Coconut snack bar

and a few more not pictured because I was too darn hungry to wait/find my camera{phone}
vanilla almond snack bars || Honey Balsamic pork tenderloin || Drunken zucchini noodles with spicy honey chicken || lemon teriyaki chicken || sweet potato noodles with spinach or kale || make-ahead breakfast casserole

most of these are healthy(ish) and of course I couldn't forget about a treat for the pup! Our favorite meal is hands down the drunken zucchini noodles with spicy honey chicken but the snack bars are definitely the best addition to our fridge, maybe ever.  Homemade grain free, just fruit and nuts and seeds -- healthy and so easy to make and even easier to eat.  We LOVE them.

not-so healthy
White chocolate lucky charm treats || slutty brownies || roasted garlic and bacon spinach dip

Per the super bowl these unhealthy but utterly delicious foods were made and devoured.  The dip is our favorite and in honor of football I've made it twice this season.  The treats and brownies were both sweet and rich and given away promptly after said Super Bowl -- can't have those little devils laying around for too long.

I've really enjoyed being in the kitchen this winter, trying and tasting new recipes-- but can I get a big amen to fresh spring time foods?! Salads and berries and fresh greens and seafood! also, carrot cake.
Who's with me!?
