Homemade Pizza Sauce

I found this delicious recipe from Kitchen Treaty. I made my adjustments to Kitchen Treaty’s original recipe in red. Homemade sauce is easy to make, and makes such a huge difference in cooking! Homemade Pizza Sauce INGREDIENTS: 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 tablespoon minced garlic (about two or three large cloves) 1 teaspoon dried oregano…

Grilled Pita Bread with Zaatar

I’ve tried making homemade pita bread a few times now, and this is by far my favorite recipe! I used Saveur’s recipe for Grilled Pita Bread with Zaatar with slight adjustments (in red) I halved the original recipe and ended up with 4 pitas HOMEMADE PITA BREAD WITH ZAATAR Ingredients 0.5 of a 1/4-oz. package…

Homemade Greek Yogurt Bagels

This delicious recipe is only 5 ingredients, and has many healthy nutrients because of the greek yogurt! I made these for my family a few months ago and they had no idea there was greek yogurt inside and enjoyed these bagels! These are slightly smaller than traditional bagels, so you might find yourself eating more…

Whole Wheat Challah

Challah is definitely my favorite bread, and I decided to make this recipe with ingredients I had at home (I only had whole wheat flour). I wasn’t expecting for this whole wheat version to taste as delicious as it did, especially since I made many revisions to the original recipe I used from Cooking with Tantrums….

Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

Right now the best soup I have EVER made. Thank you ginabnutrition for this recipe (found on her instagram). The fall flavors of this soup are just incredible, and I love that this soup uses seasonal ingredients. I made a few adjustments based on ingredients I had at home to her original recipe (adjustments will…

Homemade Lachuch

Homemade Garlic Knots

I was out of bread at home and looking for a homemade bread recipe that also used garlic (which I had a surplus of), and found this DELICIOUS garlic knots recipe from Pretty.Simple.Sweet. They were fluffy, flavorful, and buttery, just how I like them! I didn’t have a standing mixer, so I used my dough mixer…

Homemade Nut Butter

If these had a label, I’d write, “WARNING: ADDICTIVE!” on them. I made three different variations of nut butters this past month for the first time, and wanted to share my advice for doing so, as well as the recipes I used. When making nut butters at home, it is important to have a strong…

Roasted Asparagus

Roasted Asparagus: recipe from New York Times: Ingredients: 1 bunch (around 2 pounds) thick asparagus, woody ends snapped off (I used purple asparagus, but any asparagus is fine) 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil salt, freshly ground pepper 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves (optional) fresh lemon or lime juice (optional) Instructions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees….

Mini Vegetable Goat Cheese Frittatas

Inspired by the Cutting Veg’s Mini Cauliflower Goat Cheese Frittatas, which I slightly revised for this recipe I thought I would try making this recipe since I had goat cheese, thyme and egg I wanted to use. I thought it would be interesting to substitute beet rice for the original cauliflower rice (thinking it would…
