Friday's List: My 10 Favourite Recipes!

Nov 14, 2014

Each Friday I post Friday's List. There are no requirements for what type of list I post. I like having a consistent weekly feature and it also switches things up from my regular posts about decorating and our reno.

Today I'm sharing 10 of my favourite tried & tested recipes.

1. Baked Blueberry Pecan French Toast. Baked french toast is the way to go. It's absolutely delicious. Another version of this recipe involves cranberry-raspberry topping, perfect for Christmas festivities.

2. Chorizo Carbonara. This is a Jamie Oliver recipe. It's so warm and hearty yet not too overwhelming. I've made this dish with kale as well, which goes really nicely with the lemon flavours already in the recipe.

3. Hearty Maple Beans. I once cooked a Southern themed meal for Nick & his family for his birthday, this dish was by far the most popular. Pair it with BBQ ribs and mashed potatoes to really get the effect.

4. Healthy Pumpkin Zucchini Chocolate Chip Bread. I love loafs, I'd like all baked goods to come in the form of a loaf. This one's a particular favourite because it's "healthy" (minus the chocolate chips, but realistically, a little chocolate is healthy...isn't it?).

5. Crock Pot Bread. This is simply genius. You can add a variety of things to this as well, rosemary and oregano, or cinnamon and craisins. Endless options and it really is delicious!

6. Passion Fruit & Coconut Panna Cotta. This one's a crowd pleaser, and so easy to whip up; for a group or yourself, there's no judgement here.

7. Swedish Fish Stew (with saffron). The original recipe I followed for this dish was in Swedish, but the one linked here seems very similar. I served this to family and friends over the summer and they couldn't get enough of it. It's a rich dish with a lot of flavour but if you're willing to give it a try, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

8. Peanut Butter Protein Bars. This recipe is from a friend of mine, and although not a meal recipe per se, protein bars are great for snacks, and these ones are particularly tasty & nutritious.

9. Fish Tacos. Yummmmm This dish is fairly straight forward and realistically, you probably don't need to follow a recipe. But if you've never had fish tacos before, you just have to try it - use this recipe as a guide and enjoy!

10. Smoky Bacon Mac & Cheese. Just what you need to warm you up on a cold winter's night.


And there you have it, my 10 favourite recipes. I basically like all food, so defining this list was hard, but I decided to go with dishes that were not only easy on the taste buds, but also pretty easy to put together. I'm not a fan of complex cooking.

Try one out and let me know what you think!
