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?

The Friday 5: Real food recipes #11

Welcome to this eleventh Friday 5, a roundup of Recipes of the Day featured on YayYay’s Kitchen Facebook page in the last week. Hopping into spring – Recipes of the Day from April 1-7, 2016 This week, we hopped over some cold days with two totally different soups, tasted some pan-fried, caramelized apples, and dipped our toes into warm weather with summery no-tuna salad wraps and the sweet flavors of pan-roasted cherry tomatoes.

The Friday 5: Real food recipes #9

  Welcome to this ninth Friday 5, a roundup of Recipes of the Day featured on YayYay’s Kitchen Facebook page in the last week. Sweet treats, fresh treats – Recipes of the Day from March 18-24, 2016 On the weekend, blueberry turnovers and Romanian potato pancakes called tocin. On #MeatlessMonday, colorful, vegetables roasted without oil. (We tried ’em; we liked ’em.) Then a crisp, refreshing salad that could hardly be easier to make, also oil free, a savory flatbread I’m still looking forward to trying, and a spicy-sweet carrot ginger dressing. This week’s recipes had my taste buds dancing the cha cha, rumba and Macarena all at the same time. (How old am I?) Which of these would you like to try first?
