Friday 5: Real Food Recipes #4

Friday 5 with YayYay's Kitchen Facebook banner


Welcome to the fourth Friday 5, a roundup of Recipes of the Day featured on YayYay’s Kitchen Facebook page in the last week.

Each Friday you’ll find at least five recipes here, sometimes six or seven, depending on how the foodie stars aligned that week. Most are vegetarian, some vegan. Occasionally, the Recipe of the Day includes meat or meat stock. YayYay’s is a flexitarian whole-foods kitchen.

Fresh ingredients make cooking fun
Recipes of the Day from February 12-18, 2016

Whether it’s making a fabulously good dessert that takes barely thirty minutes and reaps eye-rolling, “oh-so-good” reviews; or grokking on the colors and scents of fresh, gorgeous herbs and vegetables in a one-dish meal; or giggling with the kids and grandkids while you roll out homemade crackers or assemble pizza bites together, good food makes cooking fun. Or is it the other way around?

Your turn! What’s simmering on your back burner? I invite you to post a link in the comments to a favorite whole grain/whole food recipe you discovered or published this week. Spam will, of course, be smashed and burned.

    Love veggie type skillets, and the Broccoli Potato Skillet pic is mouthwatering! What are the little yellow flowers?

    • Ah, thank you Robert! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Yesterday, I made Katherine Estrada’s (Blessed BoyMom) Raw Hemp Thin Mints (the last recipe in this group). They were a hit here too.


    • Come on over! Most of these aren’t mine, although I was surprised to see I had picked two of my own this week. Mostly I share recipes from other people’s sites. So many recipes to try! In fact, I just now made the thin mints. Yum!


I'd love to hear from you!
