Review: Recent recipes

Here's a roundup of all the yummy yummy things I've made lately.


Strawberry baked oatmeal: This is a really easy recipe that can be customized to please anyone. I made it with raspberries, blackberries, bananas, cinnamon, nutmeg and dark chocolate chips. It's SO GOOD and maybe a little high in sugar, but overall pretty healthy. I've eaten it for breakfast every day this week with a big scoop of Greek yogurt. It's super filling.

Quiche with bacon and leeks (recipe in Dutch): This is one of those recipes that looks fancy, like you spent hours in the kitchen, but it's actually pretty easy. I want to try to make it with creme fraiche or Greek yogurt to make it a little healthier; this version really high in fat and calories.


Polenta bake: Polenta is quickly becoming a standby for me. It's easy to make and the perfect base for a meal. I loosely followed the linked recipe, but honestly, you hardly need a recipe to make polenta. I stirred in Greek yogurt, zucchini and spinach. I also added some butter and mozzarella. It was a little too liquidy with the addition of yogurt and juices from all the veggies, so I will probably cut back on the amount of broth I use next time.

Black beans and coconut rich with mango salsa: Easy and super cheap. I love this recipe for work lunches.

Eggplant pizzas: Unimpressive. I will be trying these again, because the recipe says to cook the eggplant before you put the toppings on and I didn't do that (whoops). Maybe that will make all the difference.


  1. I'm really interested to try (as in taste) an eggplant pizza but I can't find anyone who will make it for me! :(

    1. Find yoself an oven, girl! Regular pizza is still way better though, you aren't really missing out. And I'm impressed that as a Brit you know what an eggplant is (or should I say aubergine)!
