Weekend Link Love [January 5, 2014]

I’ve decided to break up these weekend link posts into a couple different sections. I will try to have posts in the following topics each time I do a WLL: Recipes, Yoga, Pregnancy/Parenting, and Health (general).

Recipes

Bacon & Green Onion Zucchini Pancakes - I made these yesterday for breakfast. My changes were: 1) halved the recipe; 2) instead of bacon in the pancake, we had pork roll on the side (pork roll is a Jersey thing); 3) I used gluten free flour in place of coconut flour, which I don’t have; 4) skipped the green onions (didn’t have); 5) added ground black pepper. They were great.

Super Easy Crockpot Chili. I am 7 months pregnant and it is cold outside. “Super easy” + chili + everything that goes with it (cheese, sour cream, simple and flavorful brown rice) make me a happy camper. This version also happens to have butternut squash – how could you go wrong? It’s on my menu plan this week. Might have to sub out that butternut for kabocha though.

July Shenanigans & Recipes…

This summer has been one of the best.

Bobby and I have been cooking up a storm…

moscow mule 500x500 July Shenanigans & Recipes...

^^A moscow mule (a drink my dad introduced me to).^^

This was mine, but I gave it to Bobby – after one sip I didn’t want anymore! It’s delicious but I wasn’t in a drinking mood. {HERE} is the recipe I posted 5 years ago when my dad first told me about it. It’s a mix of ginger beer, vodka, lime, and mint. Sometimes we do half seltzer / half ginger beer. Gingerale also works.

tempeh onion goop 500x500 July Shenanigans & Recipes...

^^Sweet and Savory Tempeh with Onions^^

I started off following Gwyneth Paltrow’s recipe for Tempe Manis (Sweet Tempeh) but changed it… a lot. As you guys know, I’m not really into sweets that much, so I cut out just about all the sugar, and instead caramelized some onions to give it sweetness. I will hopefully remember what I did so I can post my version of the recipe later. So delicious.

Week-End Link Love… [July 18 2013]

I was going through my draft posts and came across a link love that I never put up. Thought I would share now, because though these articles may be a year old, they are still interesting and relevant. Since we are at the end of the week it’s kind of still “week end” link love.

The Case Against Kids. About a year ago (when I compiled these links) was around the time when I fully changed my mind about having kids (to YES, definitely). If you’d asked me a few years before, I was very much anti-kid (at least for me). Now – I hope to have one or two soon. Still a good read.

Why do zoo apes get heart disease? It could be diet, lifestyle, or stress. Interesting read.
