The Friday 5: Real food recipes #15

Welcome to this fifteenth Friday 5, a roundup of Recipes of the Day featured on YayYay’s Kitchen Facebook page in the last week. Celebrate Mother’s Day with these Recipes of the Day from April 29-May 5, 2016 From a new twist on cole slaw, which is always a hit at our house, to our all-time favorite ice cream dessert, strawberry cheesecake ice cream parfait, we enjoyed delicious treats and comfort foods this week. Between those two, we tasted crispy-on-the-outside smashed new potatoes frisked with fresh dill and two more amazing desserts. The first, a fruity pizza, features fresh, colorful fruits on a bed of creamy yogurt “cheese” over a sugar cookie crust. And for Cinco de Mayo, Los Diablitos, devilish little chocolate cake bites. I dare you to limit yourself to just one! What can I say? I’ve got a sweet tooth! For Mother’s Day, I want every one of these goodies!

The Friday 5: Real food recipes #13

Welcome to this thirteenth Friday 5, a roundup of Recipes of the Day featured on YayYay’s Kitchen Facebook page in the last week. Ramson cream, feijoa loaf and down-home tacos  – Recipes of the Day from April 15-21, 2016 This week’s fare includes two new-to-me ingredients from international waters. The first recipe, from a German cook in Denmark, uses ramsons (wild garlic). The fourth recipe, from the southern hemisphere, calls for feijoa, a popular fruit there. I hope to find the wild garlic at my local green grocer, but I doubt I’ll find feijoas, so I’ll try figs in that quick bread. As for the salad, it’s a springtime favorite in our house. I’m especially looking forward to trying the vegan lentil-walnut-meat filling on taco night, and that berry cashew smoothie bowl? That’s a new one on me, too. Which recipe do you want to try first?
