Weekly Finds

It's been a while since I've posted one of these! These are the great recipes, workouts, and finds I've come across in the past few months. 

Breakfast:

Mini Breakfast Quiches These are great for breakfast on the go

Baked Eggs with Spinach and Mushrooms Wow this would be perfect for hosting a brunch - everyone gets their own baked egg with a gooey yolk

Banana Nut Granola I love this idea - it uses mashed banana right in with the granola ingredients

Roasted Broccoli and Sharp Cheddar Quiche I love that this uses cornmeal in the crust

Cinnamon Blueberry Overnight French Toast I'm definitely going to make this after I go blueberry picking!

Strawberry Sweet Rolls with Vanilla Cream Cheese Glaze I would love to make these with homemade strawberry jam!

The Best Orange Glazed Sweet Rolls These looks so incredible

Cornmeal Pancakes with Blueberry-Rhubarb Compote I love the idea of cornmeal in your pancakes

Brown Butter Cinnamon Rolls This has brown butter in the dough, filling, as well as the frosting! And they're ready in an hour

Baked Blueberry Oatmeal with Walnut Streusel Topping

Maple Pecan Sticky Buns

Snacks:

Spring Vegetable Goat Cheese Dip This cheesy appetizer sounds delicious

No-Bake Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola Bars These seem really similar to the Quaker granola bars, but I'm sure taste way better!

Cookie Butter Banana Bread Delicious combination of flavors

Mixed Herb Scones with Sharp Cheddar You can use any fresh herbs that you want to make these

Bread:

Cinnamon Raisin Bread This is so beautiful

Triple Berry Cinnamon Swirl Bread Another beautiful bread, I love that this one has fresh berries in it

Brioche Burger Buns These beautiful buns would dress up any burger

Soft Pretzel Nuggets with Spicy Cheese Dipping Sauce This sauce sounds so yummy

Dinner:

Kale and Brown Rice Gratin with Smoked Cheese Sauce

Potato and Cheese Pierogi

Fresh Spinach Pasta

Fresh Herb Homemade Pasta

Meatball Style Veggie Burgers Really interesting - vegetarian meatballs that have been flattened so you can stick them on a burger bun

Sides:

Grilled Halloumi Skewers with Cilantro-Tahini Sauce I'm making these the next time we grill! Without the cilantro, of course

Dessert:

Nutella Swirled Banana Bread This is such an elegant looking banana bread

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups These are baked in muffin tins, so they are perfectly shaped every time and won't spread too much

Cream Puffs with Pastry Cream These are so elegant, and this recipe makes them sound pretty simple to make

Dark Chocolate Raspberry Banana Bread This sounds so indulgent and delicious

Salted Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Cookies Peanut butter, peanut butter chips, and peanut butter cups are added to the New York Times chocolate chip cookies recipe

Ultimate Brownies Joey was looking over my shoulder as I checked out this recipe, and told me that I MUST save the recipe :)
