How I Love Thee: Favorite Formulas

So this week, I’m pretty darned busy (that’s a lie, I’m ALWAYS RIDICULOUSLY BUSY). I just don’t have enough time to post this week so I’ve decided to share with you some of my favorite recipes I’ve tried!

1. Breakfast: Orange Pistachio Cinnamon Rolls: These cinnamon rolls are phenomenal. I made them in the summer with my dad and they turned out surprisingly well. We added extra orange juice and zest to the dough and we added LOTS of raisins to the filling (because everything I eat obviously must be packed with raisins…). They were perfect in the morning with a giant coffee (or green tea). And they were also perfect for lunch with a big salad. And again, they were perfect for dinner with a stir-fry and some quinoa…

2. Lunch: Corn, Avocado, Blueberry, Kale Salad: Seriously simple, tasty and filling. For the dressing, I excluded mint (just because I didn’t have any), the 1/2 avocado, and the shallot (because I didn’t want to use the blender). I ended up chopping the shallot directly into the salad instead and I’m REALLY glad I did. I love shallots.

3. Dinner: Soba Noodles with Tahini Sauce: The recipe recommends you eat it chilled, but I’m a fan of it warm and fresh from the pot. I of course added frozen peas, but otherwise I made no changes! It was perfect to have after a long day at school, quick to make and oddly satisfying.

Well. There you go! Three for now, and another three will indubitably follow (Should this be a thing I do often?). I Hope you all have a wonderful week full of love and magic and MOST IMPORTANTLY good food.
