I've recently had the unsettling experience of finding a recipe I love and then forgetting where I found the recipe. This happens less often when the valued recipe came out of a cookbook I own, but Michael and I are more frequently using recipes found online. In my experience with lost online recipes, they're not easily found.
So, it's in this spirit that I'm listing a number of recipes I've recently found online, cooked at home, and thoroughly enjoyed:
Soba with Peanut-Citrus Sauce
This recipe is simple and rewarding. I tried it while Michael was out of town; he doesn't enjoy nut sauces very much.
Pasta with Roasted Cauliflower, Chickpeas, and Ricotta
Michael thought this was forgettable, I thought it was awesome.
Baked Mac and Cheese with Vegetables
This has quickly become a staple in our house because it's easy to make ahead and tasty.
Banana Bread with Chocolate and Ginger
I've made this recipe twice - once overcooked and once undercooked. Despite the fact that I haven't gotten it right yet, I think the banana/chocolate/ginger combination is a definite winner.
Alea's Eggplant Pizza Bites
This recipe is pictured above and doesn't really need a recipe - it's really more of just a good idea. We served them with pesto on pasta and salad (made with basil and tomatoes straight from our garden)!
I'm eager to try the following recipes sometime soon:
Roasted Vegetable Enchiladas
We've been eating almost exclusively vegetarian lately but have yet to find a really great vegetarian enchilada recipe. This recipe looks promising!
Simple Summer Peach Cake
Michael frequently has to deal with the repercussions following my insistence on making desserts with complex recipes. This one looks really straightforward.
