Weekly Recipe Wrap-up

Has anyone else noticed that there have been some especially good recipes being shared in the blog world recently? Is it the holiday season? I don't know what it is but I am not complaining! I have some delicious looking recipes to share with you this week.

Is everyone back at work now? I sure am. I am mentally still in the holiday mode so it has been tough to focus on work but the hospital has been insanely busy lately with the flu outbreak so the time definitely flies by that's for sure!

Do any of you make new years resolutions? Have you broken any of them yet? It is January 4th after all..
I have never been a resolution making person… sometimes I come up with goals for the year or things I would like to accomplish but they have never revolved around January 1st. I know a lot of people resolve to get in shape and eat better every year so if you are one of those people hopefully you will find some helpful recipes and tips on my blog! And speaking of eating well I have another weekly recipe wrap up to share with you this week. I hope you are inspired by some of these! Simply click on the title and the link will take you to each recipe.

Weekly Recipe Wrap-up

1. No Bake Sticky Berry Bars from Paleomg

Those of you who have followed my blog for a while know how much a fan I am of the blog Paleomg. Here is yet another recipe that Juli put together. That berry topping looks delicious! I pretty much love any dessert recipe that involves fruit so to me this looks amazing! To make this SCD legal simply sub the maple syrup for honey. And coconut butter can be used in place of coconut concentrate depending on what you have on hand. 

2. Sweet Potato and Herb Meatloaf from Paleo Fondue 

Now I know that people have mixed feelings about meatloaf. I for one have always liked it so hopefully those reading do too! This is an interesting twist on the traditional recipe using sweet potato. This recipe comes from the blog Paleo Fondue which I recently discovered. To make this one SCD legal I would replace the sweet potato with butternut squash. I think the taste should be similar, although I have not tried it so don't quote me!

3. Creamy Tomato Soup from Paleo Girl's Kitchen

It has definitely been soup weather here in Calgary! We have had so much snow and cold weather this year it is ridiculous! So to satisfy all those cold weather food cravings I am sharing this soup recipe with you. This one comes from Paleo Girl's Kitchen. If I were to make this I would use fresh tomatoes instead of canned and homemade chicken broth to make it SCD legal. I would also use full fat coconut milk instead of light (you all know how I feel about fat by now!). 

4. Chestnut and Drunken Raisin Muffins from The Saffron Girl 

"Drunken raisins." Did that title catch your attention? I have to say that it did mine! I was very curious to see what these muffins contained. I must admit that chestnuts are not an ingredient I have ever cooked with so I would really like to try making these. This recipe comes from the Saffron Girl whose blog is dedicated to travel and food. What a great combo! Maybe in my future life I could come back as someone who only has to travel and cook. What a dream that would be! Yes a girl can dream. 

Well everyone that is this weeks recipe wrap-up. What do you think of these? Will you try making any of them? Which one will you try first? 
I hope you are all staying safe and warm! I plan to hibernate as much as possible this weekend. That's what winter does to me. It also "forces" me to cook more with all that time indoors. Yes it's a big sacrifice I know. 

I hope you have a good weekend! Please feel free to send me any comments or questions!
